Over The River And Through The Woods


“Pressure is a funny thing.  The wrong kind of pressure can make you buckle.  The right kind of pressure can make you stronger. The challenge isn’t to avoid pressure, it’s to chose the right kind.”

9 warriors rose to the dawn of a new day.  The air smelled of pre-season tulips and southside domination.

It went a little something like this.

Mosey down 42nd to Riverside to the 42nd Street JRPS entrance.  COP IC – 20 SSH, 15 Imperial Walkers, 20 LBC, 6inches + arm circles forward, 6 inches + arm circles backwards, 10 merkins.

3 Rounds of 20 dips & 10 decline merkins.  Upon completion mosey to bottom of the stairs.

3 Rounds of 20 LBC, 30 Squats, 40 SSH & run to the top of the stairs.  Upon completion mosey down service road along the river.

11s  – Captain Thors, Boo Ya Merkins. Upon completion mosey to Reedy Creek entrance and the base of Hillcrest.

5 Burpees OYO run up Hillcrest.

20 Merkins at the top of Hillcrest.

Mosey back to flag.  First ones back burpee till all men are accounted for.

Numberama, namerama, Fudd lead us out.

YHC got the call from Toga to be a replacement Q.  Upon confirmation YHC desired to keep the theme alive of getting off campus at our established AOs.  Thanks for the entertaining the wanderlust and curiosity of YHC.  Most importantly, any day surrounded by good friends that is started hearing the sounds of a river and greeted with the sunrise can only be successful.

It was awesome to see a big crew out for Batteau!  Thanks for coming in Phonics, Fudd, Upchuck and Slurpee.  Welcome back Love Seat!  You crushed it today.

Be super.

  5. I enjoyed this one, Hardywood. A thoughtful and well led Q–up to your usual high standards! It opens up some new opportunities for the AO and it was nice to get into the trails this beautiful morning.

  6. Well done, Hardywood. In particular, the 5 burpees OYO was a nice reminder of how to deal with minor, unanticipated adversity. “Just do it.”
