“If anyone forces you to go with him one mile, go with him two.”
Twenty-five (25) of Richmond’s finest (including three (3) two-point-zero’s (2.0s) resisted the lure of the fart sack and joined YHC for a numerically challenged saunter through the depths and breadths (and catching our breadths) of The Dogpile.
Mosey from the Flag to the memorial flag (curve at Trafford Road and the tennis courts) for the COP
Abe Vegoda x10
Reverse Crunches x10
Mosey to baseball fields
No truth to the allegations that the PAX jumped the fence to enter a locked facility.
But if it were true, the PAX would have done the following:
Sprints from right field line to 2nd base extended. Sprint back.
2nd round sprint at 87.5% (Measurements by Fudd) to 2nd base extended, slow trot to warning track
Polar bear to 2nd base
Five (5) “Who Knows What They are Called” (lay down on back, feet raised six (6) inches, arms do five (5) SSH flaps)
Crab walk to home plate
Burpees to bring up the six (6)
Diamond / Run the Bases
1st Base-ish: Mercans x10
2nd Base-ish: LBCs x20
3rd Base-ish: Squats x30
Home Plate: Flutter kicks x40
Mosey to Reservoir Hill for Dora
100 Mercans, 200 (or 400, ahem) LBCs (depending on how you count ’em), 300 flutter kicks. Runner scales hill while partner exercises.
Mosey to Columbus Statue for Triangles
3 legs were…10 Mercans at the base of the reservoir incline roads (use both roads with 25 in the group), run backwards up the roads, then drop down the side of the hill. 20 Rosalitas at the bottom. Repeato 2x
Mosey to Columbus to re-assemble the PAX.
Mosey to east side of the reservoir, pick up Strollers Road. Follow to Lakeview, then follow Trafford to Blanton (Police Memorial). Along the route, perform an exercise at each lamp post. First post 5 Mercans, 2nd post 10 reverse crunches, 3 post 15 squats. Repeat until arriving at Blanton. Perform burpees to bring up the six.
Mosey on Trafford “Burpee Road” style…2 burpees per post
Mosey back to the flag. Number-rama, Name-a-rama, YHC took us out.
Bel Monte, March 11
Ragnar – April 28-29
One more race…April 21 or so (YHC missed this one…someone pick me up).
Great job today, gentlemen (and ladies). It was a pleasure to lead you all on a atmospherically perfect February (yes, it is still February) morning. YHC’s last Dogpile Q brought with it a thick snow cover, so it was nice to enjoy cool temperatures for the first week of Spring Training.
YHC confesses to checking his calendar upon pulling in to the Dogpile lot. The absence of a certain blue, dog-wrapped pick-up truck prompted several reactions. First, YHC asked silently, “Is today Saturday?” After confirming the day, YHC made a quick calls to both St. Mary’s Hospital and the Richmond morgue to ensure that no one wearing a Woodfin hoodie had been brought in last night. Finally, Rosie relieved my anxiety with the reminder of a twisted Sw-ankle. Stay off that thing for a few days…hope to see you back soon, Swirly.
Shout out to Hardywood who was styling with some dotted swirlishly green and yellow shorts. Fine looking attire, to say the least. His quote: “It’s impossible to be unhappy wearing these shorts.” YHC likes the positive attitude: in mind, in body, and ON body. Well done, sir.
Thanks also to Fudd for his charitable work on behalf of YHCs numerical deficiencies. YHC concedes that 1-count, 2-count, and 4-count LBCs all have some merit. Next time, YHC plans to lead the PAX in 3-count SSHs and 2 count burpees.
Finally, welcome to FNG McKenna (F3 name Havoc). She might have YHC’s favorite F3 name (and not just because YHC named her).
