Foul Weather Friends


Wet.  Cold.  A sweet 16 came ready to embrace the suck and workout.


  • SSH
  • APD (go ahead and get wet)
  • Don Quixotes – Saab speed
  • Arm Circle – The cat burglar did not appear.
  • Russian Soldiers

Mosey back to the tennis courts for B.O.M.B.S.  Partner up and one runs the inside perimeter of the tennis courts and the other does the following:

  • 50 Burpees
  • 100 SSH
  • 150 Merkins
  • 200 LBCs
  • 250 Squats

Mosey to the soccer field for an exercise inspired by the video Bleeder attached to a recent backblast.  Bear crawl the width of the soccer field.  Flatline was up front and channeling his Ursa Major skills.  Next time we will think about the entire field.

Back to the school for a Triple Check

  • BTTW
  • Elbow Plank
  • Run to the fence and 10 Merkins

Up against the wall for a Line O’ Peckers.  Chicken peckers that is, lighting the fuse from both ends and meeting in the middle.  With the mud, it was a little difficult to not slide or sink.  Needed advanced BTTW skills to anchor in.

50 Merkins OYO

Dealers Choice Mary – American Hammers, WWII, Flutter Kicks, Rosalitas, Box Cutters.

Back to the VSF and YHC took us out.


Mumble chatter was a minimum today.  Perhaps the oppressive gloom had something to do with it.  It was great to see the Hoedown clown car roll up.  Way to represent!

For those running the race this weekend, enjoy the run!  All of your training got you to this point and you are ready.  This is something to savor.

Time to Taper,

  1. You really took the chill out LJ…the BOMBS were just that. Thanks to Viral for partnering with me…I particularly enjoyed his unique method of counting.

    Chicken Peckers were rough, but I’m getting better with the hand motions…(practice makes perfect).

    Saab is pleased with Kubota’s icon

  2. Thanks for leading, Lockjaw. First time back at 45MOM in months. Rain sucked. Line o’ Peckers (new to me) sucked. Suck embraced.
