One shy of 20 descended upon Dogwood Dell to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of WDog. With Hot Potato in hand, this is what transpired…
Swirly Q: Mosey to amphitheater for COT. Alternate incline Merkins and Dips, ascending up the steps to 18 totl. Run to Carillon, Bear Crawl up, Polar Bear across, then run down. Complete 20 Captain Thors, then perform Burpees until PAX is done (“Whew!”).
Bleeder Q: BBC’s across field. Bear Crawl to 25 yard line, Broad Jump Burpee to next 25 year line, Crab Walk remaining distance (“Ugh!!”).
TYA: 365 Lt Dans with partner – alternating a run up and around the Carrillon (“are you frickin kidding me!!!”)
Saab: Burpee Ring of Fire, COT
As we gathered in the amphitheater, stage lights were illuminated as if to join in the celebration of the WDog anniversary. As we cycled through the COP, Swirly’s excitement was almost palpable as the glow of stage lights cast a shadow upon both him and what appeared to be an emerging chub.
Swirly began by administering comprehensive workout instructions. This left YHC wondering why he would both divulge up-front what we would be doing for the entire workout, and whether there would be enough time to complete everything. Having not missed a beat, Swirly led the PAX the whole way with Circle K right up front. The PAX was sufficiently smoked and had little rest before Bleeder took charge…
YHC has a theory that Bleeder either has a hidden bear/gorilla gene, or has spent extensive time observing zoo animals. The man can perform a bear crawl faster than most people can walk and that skill was evident during the BBCs. There was only mild confusion as to where the yard-markers were, but the PAX improvised just fine. Having then completed what he viewed as two harsh beatdowns, YHC’s concerns were realized as it was announced that TYA then had the Q.
On a good day, YHC’s Lt Dans resemble a poor attempt to mimic an extra in a stage production of Lord of the Dance. Having been instructed to share in the completion of 365 LD’s was discouraging. It was later heard that some of the PAX had been running up and BEHIND the Carillon…presumably to get slight relief from the LD’s. It was approximately half way through that TYA’s heart grew 2 sizes (not quite 3), and had the PAX change over to Squats. Saab then took the PAX for a quick Burpee ring of fire and then COT.
As YHC took us out today it gave him the opportunity to share his recent reflections regarding how much of a difference F3 has made in his life. Sometimes the biggest gaps in our lives go un-noticed until we experience what has been missing first hand. Thanks to everyone for coming out today, and every day.
