Milk Run


9 peered out on this rainy school holiday morning for a special edition of Hoedown.  One Hoedown a week just isn’t enough.

Ronnie took lead of the mosey to the front of the school for the COP:

  • SSH
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Merkins
  • Arm Circles
  • Russian Soldiers (or is it Rushing Shoulders?)

Hand off Q to Splinter for mosey to the sea of blacktop.  Partner up – parent and 2.0 – for the following:

  • Round 1 – Partner 1 runs the length of the blacktop and back while partner 2 does Merkins; flip and repeat
  • Round 2 – Partner 1 backward runs the length of the blacktop and back while partner 2 does WWII; flip and repeat
  • Round 3 – Partner 1 karaokes the length of the blacktop and back while partner 2 does squats; flip and repeat

Hand off Q to Lockjaw  for PLT: 25 count three times through for everyone.  Mosey to the back playground field for Triple Check.

  • BTTW
  • Lt Dans
  • Run a lap of the track

Bear crawl across the field and hand off Q to Honey Do.  Mosey back to the school for some People’s Chair.

Circle up for Mary – Flutter Kicks, American Hammers.

Finish with the Burpee Shuffle.

Da Vinci and Lockjaw took us out.


The rain cleared for a perfect workout this morning.  I am proud of these 2.0s for rising early and ready to go full of excitement and giving it all.  They had tremendous speed, but the form police would have written a few violations today.  In the end, the 2.0s enjoyed themselves as much as their Pax dads.

The title is from a strange half gallon of milk nested in the branches of a tree.  Very odd and the 2.0s confirmed it as smelly.  Science experiment?

Coffee at Shore Dog was awesome; as much for the camaraderie as it is the coffee.  2.0s enjoyed the hot chocolate.


  • Special Mary tomorrow – 6:00 am start.  Come hear about Virginia’s Thanksgiving history or TYA’s revisionist history of the event.

Time to Taper,

  1. This was a blast, even with the rain. Also this was a first with pax requesting burpees in the COP.

  2. Agreed Honey Do. A great time was had by all.

    Not only were burpees requested during COP but they were ignored by the Q. That may be a first as well.

    Kudos to Jaws, who solely represented our fairer gender and pushed everyone today. Well done.
