9 Southside redwoods and the eighth (or ninth) New Market FNG arose this morning to greet each other on a true sunny and 70 morning. The humidity was heavy and the summer gloom on the track seems to increase the temperature as opposed to the colder winter effect.
Mosey to the bus parking area for the COP. Good to use this area while there are no diesel fumes to compete with. SSHx25, Hillbillies x20, Arm Circles x15, Peter Parker x10, LBCx20
Mosey to the track for 13s. In celebration of Cliffhanger’s 13th birthday we did 13s instead of 11s with Imperial Squat Walkers and Box Cutters. Stations are each corner of the track.
Back to the Parking Lot to grab a rock for a Rock Lap. Around the bus loop with the rock and exercises mixed in including lunges, merkins with 1 hand on the rock, shoulder presses, curls, skull crushers, waiter carries and maybe another.
Find some grass for Mary 10 WWII with rock, 20 FK rock held high, APD with rock, WWII with rock press, Dollies – 1 bus loop lap or LBC
Rock ring of fire – Hold Al Gore with the Rock 10 merkins and back to Al Gore
COT, Numberama, Namearama – YHC took us out
Welcome Ocho, another New Market FNG. Double digits for SOT today, great job men. Going to have to come strong if that Ghost Flag thing ever comes to fruition. Lots of questions with that but I am sure Lab Rat will work all of that out before it gets started.
Today is Cliffhanger’s 13th birthday, YHC didn’t try to get him out of bed today since he has been on a summer binge of camps and vacation with minimal sleep, he’ll be out soon enough. No need to anger the teenage beast but we did 13s to celebrate without him. Good discussion about whether to allow his friends inside the house at the party tonight, teenage boys carry a similar odor to F3 gloves. If my gloves aren’t allowed in the house why should they be. Wilson does not have teenage boys and does not want to smell them near his house anytime soon.
The rocks have been there all this time and have not gotten much use but today seemed like a good day to try it out again. The slow trip around the bus loop worked out well for those in the #runningsucks crowd. Fears of being crushed by a rock of your own selection were not realized and the PAX made it through stronger and without any permanent damage. Clamshell has only posted to a few handfuls of SOT workouts but has gotten to experience the rocks twice, at least we didn’t Indian Run with them this time. Carmen San Diego was not happy to hear that box cutters were part of the 13s, he has moved into his new abode and is tired of dealing with any kind of boxes. Need to hit up McRib for the neighborhood clown car now.
On another note, this is the first BB YHC has posted on the new website and props to Splinter, DK and anyone else that had a hand in it. Once I memorized my new Chinese password, things have been easy.
