Trio of Hate Waits on the Snow at SOT


3 SOJ regulars of the HATE vintage eschewed the forecast and posted at SOT this morning to warm up with a steaming pot of GUMBO, that tasted a little something like this:

Mosey around the bus loop and back to the opposite parking lot for COP (all IC x 17):

  • SSHs
  • DQs
  • Imperial Walkers
  • LBCs
  • Flutter Kicks
  • Copperhead Squats


Quarter Pounder with Fries:

Mosey to the football field (now slightly covered in snow) for–

  • Sprint to the 25 yard line, perform 25 merkins, backpedal back to the end-zone and perform 4x4s until the six arrives.
  • Sprint to the 50, 50 squats, backpedal back, 4x4s
  • Sprint to the 75, 75 single-count slippery mountain climbers, backpedal back, 4x4s
  • Sprint to the opposite end zone, 100 SSHs, backpedal back, 4x4s

4 Corner Escalator:

  • Corner 1 = 10 CDDs, run to corner 2
  • Corner 2 = 10 CDDs, 20 Box Cutters, run to corner 3
  • Corner 3 = 10 CDDs, 20 BCs, 30 Monkey Humpers, run to corner 4
  • Corner 4 = 10 CDDs, 20 BCs, 30 MHs, and 40 2-count Freddie Mercuries, run to corner 1 and Al Gore for Six

Jacob’s Ladder:

Mosey over to hill near tennis courts for Jacob’s Ladder — run up the hill perform 1 Burpee, run back down and perform 1 jump squat…repeato up to 7 and back down to 1.  SMOKED!

Triple Check:

Mosey back to flag area for a traditional triple-check with Incline Merkins, Flutter Kicks and a run around the parking lot median

Tour De Bus Loop:

Instead of 5 MOM, we took a lap around the bus loop stopping randomly on Q’s command for exercises, including SSHs, HIllbillies, Bear Crawl and Crab Cakes

Back to the Flag for COT, Number-rama, Name-a-rama and YHC took us out

Announcements:  CSAUP – get your teams formed and get your miles in.


Not a lot of mumblechatter this morning other than surprise that the snow arrived later than expected.  YHC woke up Swirly-early this morning expecting to wake to snow-covered roads and wanting to allow for extra time to get to the paradise that is SOT… Instead, it was a light freezing rain and flurries and I had extra time to plan the workout.

Rosie and Marmaduke arrived at normal time, and the hate trio quickly got to work.  YHC really only had the Quarter Pounder, the 4 Corners and the Jacob’s Ladder planned, but this PAX crushed all 3 and we needed to fill the remaining time.  Great job guys.

I hope everyone stays warm and safe today.  Have a great day.

No more Gumbo for you!

  1. Way to lead us Gumbo! Jacob’s Ladder sucked for sure, especially after the backwards running on the quarter pounder with fries. Appreciate both you guys pushing me this morning, stay safe in the blizzard of 18!
