A Mighty 12 came out for a wet Hoedown and to see the AO that last week’s inaugural seventeen have been talking about.
It started out in the bus loop with COP:
- Invisible Jump Rope (bringing a little Punisher to Hoedown)
- Copperhead Squats
- Slow Don Quixotes
- Russian Soldiers
Mosey down Lindsay Drive to Lindsay Court all the way down the hill to the end. Time for some Lindsays. Start with 30 merkins and 10 Box Cutters flipping positions and increasing/decreasing count by five til you are at 10 and 30.
Partner up for Catch Me If You Can. Partner 1 runs up the hill backwards while partner 2 does three burpees and runs to their partner. Swap roles and repeat until you reach the stop sign.
Cross the road and bear crawl up the hill. Mosey to the back play ground for modified 4 Corners. It’s modified in that three of the stations are in a row and a fourth across the track. At the end of the day, 4 stations and a lap around the track.
- Station 1 – Derkins with legs suspended by swings
- Station 2 – Suspend yourself from the monkey bars and leg lifts
- Station 3 – Dips off the benches
- Station 4- Box Jumps
20 of each exercise and repeato 3 times.
Finish up with 11s – WWII, run across the field, Scorpions
Mosey Back to SF. Labrat took us out.
After last week’s total darkness, we had more ambient light even with the clouds and rain. Headlights aided us in our workout trek this morning. Saab called the Lindsays “Lazy Lindsays” since we didn’t run between exercises. Commentary was quickly replaced by grunting and gyrations in the street as the full effect of the Lindsay was experienced. YHC chose that spot in proximity to a potential EH mark. Nothing says come out and play like twelve guys in your street working out.
For those who came for the Lockjaw history lesson, as you were running backwards up the road there was a place of significance to your right. There is an 1830s farmhouse owned by Dr. Patterson named Paradise. This is where Tuckhoe Elementary held their first classes in the basement prior to the construction of the current school. Besides being a local doctor, he was a captain of the tobacco industry founding the Lucky Strike brand among others. As you can probably deduce, Patterson Avenue is named after him since it went through his land.
Finally, the box jumps and derkins were a special challenge. Derkins off of a moving swing is a good core exercise as well. The box jumps were on a four cornered spring device. When the Pax hit is just right it would catapult the Pax on the opposing side like a trampoline. Timing is everything.
- For those driving to Hoedown, do not park in the row of spaces adjacent to the bus loop. Early arriving teachers prefer these spots. Let’s keep the peace in our new AO.
- Upchuck is starting up a double dog dare monthly workout on October 21. Come for Dogpile and stay for a second hour. This month it coincides with Puppy Pile, but ongoing it may not.
