STACHE – Week 3

8

9 brave souls broke the hold and posted at NoToll for another Gumbo Q – 2 more then another can reign over NoToll…this morning YHC wanted to check in on the STACHE – week 3 and make headway on the merkin challenge.  It went like this:

Mosey toward the entrance to the park and Robious Road (almost thought the PAX wasn’t going to follow the different direction) – pick-up and escort McRib into the parking lot and circle up for COP, including the following all IC:

  • Merkins x10
  • SSHs x25
  • Merkins x9 (Mr. Roper caught on to the idea quickly)
  • Imperial Walkers x15
  • Merkins x8 (others caught on)
  • Arm Circles X10 forward and backward
  • Merkins x7 (Hardywood joined the knowledge party on the pattern)
  • DQs x10
  • Merkins x6
  • Helicopters x10
  • Merkins x5
  • LBCx x24 (YHC has a counting snafu — otherwise known as a shout out to Flatline)
  • Merkins x 4
  • Flutter kicks x15
  • Merkins x 3
  • Freddy Mercuries x15
  • Merkins x2
  • SOMETHING??
  • Merkins x1

Short mosey to the basketball court for the STACHE:

Suicides

  • Regular
  • Backward
  • Side Shuffle

Tammy Wynette (Half Now; Half Later)

Partner up and complete 5 rounds of 10 Merkins and 10 squats each

APDs x 25 IC

Captain Therkins

Basically Captain Thors — combinations of WWIIs and American Hammers keeping a 1:4 ratio but with a set of 5 merkins in between each set, as follows:

  • 1 WWII, 4 American Hammers
  • 5 Merkins
  • 2 WWII, 8 AHs
  • 5 Merkins
  • 3 WWII, 12 AHs
  • 5 Merkins
  • AND SO ON…. Minds were blown on the math here – Shocker!

PAX completed as many rounds as they could in 5 minutes.  I got to 7:28 and it hurt, I imagine 10:40 really really sucks…might have to test that theory soon?

Howling Monkeys – 2 rounds of ring of fire style passing around 10 monkey humpers and holding the position while the other PAX members do it.

Elevens – Merkins and Boxcutters 1 and 10 then run the length of the court and do 2 and 9…you know the rest

2nd half of the Tammy Wynettes

Mary – Hello Dollies, Rosalitas and Superman

Back to the flag for COT, number-rama, name-a-rama and McRib took us out!

NMS:

The mumblechatter was wild this morning.  Hardywood was in short sleeves and shorts and Tobit was in short sleeves and long pants — a different take on SOP but we will see if HoneyDo approves if the elbows are showing but not the knees…

A rowdy bunch and the howling got out of control, but work was put in for sure.  Good job this morning fellas.  I put the merkins somewhere between 280 and 310 depending on how many rounds of Captain Therkins you did.

See you at SOT!

No more Gumbo for you!

  1. Glad you remembered what we did in the COP, the mumble chatter was lively this morning. I appreciated the ground and pound for a change too. Back to running tomorrow?

  2. Great Q Gumbo! Thanks for the help in making a dent in the merkins challenge.

    Honey Do, could I get a clarification? Bros before hoes is a no brainer. But, does sleeves before knees mean sleeves bare before knees bare or sleeves covered before knees covered? I can’t be showing up screwing around with SOP.
