14 redwoods emerged from the fartsack to take on the activity of the day. Sunny and 70 all around this morning.
Mosey to intersection across from the pavilion. Mosey to Reveille church doing burpees and merkins along the way. Enter Reveille church parking lot. COP, disclaimer, 29x SSH, 15x arm circles (each way), and 20 Imperial walkers. Mosey to parking lot behind church for triple check. Merkins, dips, and run around parking lot (first forward, then backwards, then forwards). Mosey to front of church for BBC. One pax does Burpees, other pax bear crawls to brick patch, runs to end of street, backwards walks back to brick path and crab walks back. Repeat x 3. Second iteration. One PAX does Lt. Dan’s, other pax lunges to end of street, reverse lunges back two light poles, and runs backwards to end of street. Switch and repeat x2. Mosey back to school and shovel flag. Along the way do some more burpees, merkins, and backwards running.
TYA was hazing the PAX from Mechanicsville this morning, refusing to talk to them, after some backlist comment chatter between Bleeder and Abacus. Seems that after listening to the podcasts, Abacus wants to revert to the civil war. Just to be clear here, although RVA is further south, i, THE Yankee Aggressor, am on the northern side of this battle (and always will be). I may have lived in the state of VA longer than I lived in Massachusetts, but i will forever be a yankee (and damn proud of it). Lots of folks were baffled by the banter and were wondering if there was a real fight going on between mechanicsville and other Richmond AO’s. Just to put this rumor to bed, nothing to see here. Just a little fun playing around.
We did a modified version of a workout we did a couple years ago when we originally visited Reveille (see Swirly, TYA or Conspiracy for a full description of the first trip and its origins). It is good to go “off campus” every once in a while. Shakes up the norms and brings in new possibilities and terrain. Amazing to me how we were able to get so much more done today versus two years ago. Great work guys. You are getting stronger everyday
Kotters to flashdance. He was back after a trip to Mexico and a couple days or recuperation. Great to have him back today. Lots of great mumble chatter between Toga and Lab Rat today. Toga was pointing out how tough the Daville workouts must be because they need to have at least 2 Q’s to pull off a workout. (Sorry for adding more fodder to the Daville, RVA discussion). Saab in his ever so subtle way shared his thought on the subject by turning his shirt inside out.
On the way back to the flag, for a reason I cannot remember, Toga shared a neat trick about how to best put your left hand to sleep. For more details or how and why, Toga will be happy to discuss at anytime.
