32 gloom warriors and 2 FNGs fiercely met the break of day this morning at Dogplie. It appears that Spring has sprung; new guys, Cotters welcomed back (good to have you back Posh), lots of Pax – hopefully today’s turnout is a harbinger of good things to come.
Today was YHC’s virgin Dogpile Q and it went a little something like this:
COP: 25 SSH, 15 Don Quixote (bombed a joking jab at Flatline’s helicopters instead of windmills from No Toll – guess you had to be there ?), 15 Helicopters, 15 Russian Soldiers, 15 Coplerhead squats, 10 2 count Merkins, Wilson’s wife, Fudd’s wife, knees to elbows, lots of mumble chatter, done
Micro mosey to the top of the irregular quadrilateral (Wilson said it is decidedly not a triangle – he called it a rectangle but that’s not quite right either) for The Cooper: run a lap then back to the circle for 10 Burpees, 10 squats, 10 Merkins – run a lap then decrease exercises by 1, repeat on down to 1. This was what YHC thought was a good way to handle the volume of men but it went a little long so when most of the guys were done we scooped the six to move on to the next…
Form 2 lines for weaving Indian Run to the bottom of Love Hill. Cluster. However it served the intended purpose of transportation to the mission objective while keeping the Pax generally together.
Grab a guy roughly your size for partner carries to the stone steps. Go as long as you can then switch. Transition is 5 Booya Merkins. Audible to scoop the six. We were running out of time.
No time for the planned pull-up / burpee 11’s at the Rusty Cage so straight to the amphitheater…
Box jumps to the top. 1 on first step, 1 on second. 2 on third, 2 on fourth – on up to 9/9 – regroup – mosey to the flag. Good times.
No time for Mary so numberama, namerama, 2 FNG’s – nice. Welcome woodworking FNG Rob Baker (Gepetto) and acountant FNG Bill Davis (Beansie). Lots of dissent and discussion including the realization that YHC is apparently not appropriately familiar with the required F3 film canon and hasn’t seen Caddyshack since he was an adolescent and had a vcr. No regrets but I will remedy and revisit that cinematic classic soon.
Anouncments – final weeks of Healing Place 10k training. CSAUP is coming so plan accordingly.
YHC took us out with St Francis’ peace prayer.
Thanks guys for letting me lead this morning. Happy Easter.
