A lucky 13 descended upon Mary to demonstrate their strength and stamina. This is more or less what transpired…
COP: DQ’s, SSH, Squats (6 count…NEVER AGAIN), Merkins, LBC’s
Lazy Doras: (100 Merkins, 200 LBC’s, 300 J-Squats). Alternating: 10 Merkins, 20 LBC’s, 25 J-Squats (or 30 if you are partnered with TYA)
Triple Check: 1 partner completes 25 WWII’s. While waiting for partner 1, other 2 wheelbarrow up and down steps to school – performing a Merkin at each step.
Jacob’s Ladder (Construct a Burpee). Traverse courts..starting with 1 Merkin, 1 J-Squat, and 1 Burpee. Continue until at 5 Burpees.
Ring of Fire (Merkins), and then a few minutes of Mary.
As the PAX gathered in a dark but temperate morning, it was Hardywood’s declaration of his boyhood crush on Tootie from the Facts of Life that helped kick-start the morning and provide YHC yet another throwback reference to a decade he would otherwise rather forget.
As we prepared for the Lazy Dora’s, the PAX seemed to be on top of what needed to be done. Not to be topped, our resident number cruncher TYA – beginning with the signature-phrase “I know I’m not the Q but…” – offered an alternative count for the jump squats. YHC greatly appreciated TYA’s active participation during this instruction period.
The stair climb Merkins with a triple-check were something YHC had wanted to do for some time at MM, but logistics had been of concern. In a post-chat with Singer it was realized that the instructions could have been better administered (surprised?), and the count for WWII’s – which drive the rotation – could be tweeked some more.
In the end, YHC intended to minimize the amount of running for those recovering from injury (Swirly dude) and pay respects to those who will be running the Bel Monte this weekend – as was demonstrated in some of his counts (16 & 34 mile). Best wishes and respect gentleman.
