On a balmy Tuesday morning 10 men decided to enter the Gloom of No Toll for a session of pain.
Here is how it went down:
COP exercises all x 25 – SSH Merkin, Ticep Push ups, LBC’s, Squats, Don Quiote, Imperial Walker
Mosey to main field for a session of Field Hockey Ladder Runs
Each PAX hits the ball Pax sprints to the ball, mosey back then sprint 1/2 the distance, mosey back. If Pax did not increase distance each hit, 5 Burpees. Jville & mr. Roper got longest hits – However it must be noted Mr. Roper did “whiff” the first round!
X Runs – sprint from corner to corner mosey on short side of the field, then sprint to the next corner.
Mary – Cross Leg Lifts, Pickle Pounders, Homer to Marge, Superman, Alabama Prom Dates
Mosey to the flag.
Recently my oldest 2.0 (F3 Name Styx) was sidelined from her Varsity Field hockey team with a knee injury. Not a Bleeder or Saab style that takes you completely out, but one that just lingered until finally a doctor pulled her and said rest. I think it was 5 or 6 weeks where she did not practice or run. After a few weeks back she turned in a 7 minute 9 sec mile. She inspires me with her tenacity to improve and take a challenging situation and turn it into a positive.
I say all this because as she was not on the field, she kept saying, Dad you could never do one of our workouts. So as you might know, I like to be challenged. Today’s workout was inspired by her. If I did exactly what she said, we would still be out there!
Tobit took us out.
