Fear of Frosty Sprinklers


5 of the West End (and F3 RVA’s) finest gathered in the gloom today to better themselves. Here’s what went down:

Mosey to the grassy area in front of the school

Warmup COP (all in cadence) – Invisible Jump Rope x25, IW x20ish, DQ slowly x 10, Merkins x10, Freddie Mercury x20

Mosey to the bottom of the hill between football & baseball fields.

Partner hills/Lieutenant Dans – One partner runs up the hill while other does LDs at the bottom. Switch and repeat 3x each, plank-o-rama, then do 3x each again, and plank-o-rama again.

Mosey to the forbidden field before the rain makes it soggy again.

The Beast – Merkins, Flutter Kicks, Burpees, Box Cutters, Squats x3 stops/Squat jumps x3 stops, Pickle Pounders

Mosey back to shovel flag for quick COP/Mary (all IC) – LBCs x20, Attila/Offshore Prom date x20, American Hammers x20

As always, it was my pleasure to lead this excellent group of men. I’ve enjoyed getting to know each of you better in the year(ish?) that we’ve been working out together on Tuesdays at Heartbreak Ridge. It’s also a great AO, lots to do.

Knowing we hadn’t had rain in awhile, YHC was dead set on spending some time on that nice football field that we so rarely use. It was just as nice as imagined. So nice, in fact, that the Q thought it must have sprinklers… the piston noise coming from the bus in the lot nearby sounded an awful lot like a sprinkler sputtering as it started and came very close to a Q audible to have the Pax exit a frosty wet field. Of course this fits with the several-years-old (correct) narrative that this particular RVA Pax member avoids cold/wet weather combinations for the most part.

Looking forward to a Seymour Q next week. Have a superb day and week gentlemen.

Loose Goose out.

  1. Don’t know which fact I learned this morning is more interesting: Atilla and Offshore went to the same High School in Alabama OR Seymour has never seen Forrest Gump.
