YHC arrived to find Hardywood sipping his coffee. Gumbo and Rosie accepted the monthly challenge and finished running their mile and Mr. Roper peeling in hot with 4 minutes before the start! YHC decided to utilize James River HS fall field and track so we moseyed to The Swamp. During the run Hardywood and Mr. Roper started mumble chatter about a common acquaintance between the two who started a monthly mens group in his backyard. No workouts and their name-Extraordinary League of Ordinary Men. See Hardywood and Mr. Roper for clarification and any questions.
End zone COP- X15 Arm circle (10 small, 5 big) and YHC forgot to stop (jacked up the count again), X15 squats, X15 LBC, X15 Don Quixote, and X15 Imperial Walkers
Workout 1-Modified Merkin Mile (without the Merkins). Partner up and YHC was solo. Lap 1-one partner runs, other partner mountain climbers, switch. Now originally YHC thought mountain climbers would be a good work out for all four laps but quickly realized that was not happening. Lap 2-Run and squats, switch. Lap 3-Run and LBC, switch. Lap 4-Run and Arm Circles, switch.
Workout 2-Quarter Pounder. Start at goal line, run to 25 yd line, perform 25 merkins and run back to goal line. Than run to 50 yd line, perform 50 squats, run back to goal line. Run to 75 yd line (opponents 25 yd line), perform 75 mountain climbers, run back to goal line. Run 100 yds to other end zone, perform 100 SSH and back to goal line. Right before we started, YHC noticed Hardywood was sans shoes and Hardywood responded with his typical “super” response. YHC was thinking during workout 2 let’s give this a try. So before YHC started workout 3 off came the shoes and socks and looked down the line and the other 3 PAX members were sans shoes and socks too.
Workout 3-Merkin Ladder. All PAX members in bare feet too. Run to 50 yd maker, 20 Merkins and back to goal line for 19 Merkins. Run to 50 yd marker for 18 Merkins, back to goal line for 17 Merkins, and so on til there were no more Merkins to do. Hardywood is onto something, and you too Labrat! No socks and shoes….no problem!
With just enough time to place our grassy feet back in socks and shoes, we moseyed over the hill back to Betty Weaver for number-ama, name-r-ama, and announcements; Viral has fundraiser tomorrow, Richmond Community Toolbank Hammers and Ales, check preblast. Dogpile Q spoken for till end of November.
YHC took us out!
Every time I work out with all F3 fella’s, I quickly realize that getting up at 0500 or riding in a clown car, totally makes my day. Thank you for your energy, spirit, and never ending commitment to strive in being a better person. God Bless!
Loud and Proud,
