A breezy sunny and 70 morning greeted 8 redwoods at RiverRun. A couple RR newbies joined the veterans for a little off campus jaunt.
A lap around the parking lot to pick up LIFO newbie Flipper.
SSHx25, Hillbillies x20 (as always with optional Jville hop), Merkin x10, Flutter Kicks x20
Mosey down the sidewalk, across Robious Road to Twin Team for some Hate Hill. Partner up, Alternate running to the glowstick and traveling up the hill with broad jump burpees, lunges and polar bears.
Pause for some Mary – LBCs, Dollies, APD
Love Hill going down. Russian Soldiers, Crawl bear, duck walk. Plankarama.
Up to the top of the hill, just to show the PAX how fun (hateful) the entire Twin Team hill can be. More Mary- Freddie Mercuries, Rosalitas. Back to the start for a double ring of fire with merkins and 6 inch hold with leg raises.
Numberama, Namearama YHC took us out.
Glad to see Flipper make it out to the closest AO to his Goochland abode, apparently last time he fartsacked on a Monday he could faintly hear the cadence across the river and decided to try it out. Slurpee was another first timer at RR, haven’t seen him in a while, good to see him make out out again.
Honeydo’s presence was felt when YHC broke out the glowsticks as the turnaround points on Hate Hill. Leftover from Halloween, they were found in a closet this weekend and were calling out to be used for a Q. Honeymoon, as expected given his F3 name, has some big plans for Valentine’s Day so we worked in some APDs as prep work for tomorrow.
This was one of those beatdowns that worked to the Q’s strength. YHC is of the opinion that hills are fun for everyone, but am not sure all of the PAX share that perspective. They are especially useful when at least one of the PAX needs to work on them for an upcoming race. That hill is no joke and everyone powered through it multiple times up and down today. Oyster is working on getting his legs back, pushing hard like he did today will speed that up. Maybe next time YHC has the Q we’ll do some ground and pound, or maybe not. That’s the beauty of just showing up and following the Q.
