Sisyphus Strikes Again

2

Two seasoned veterans did their best to defeat Twin Team Hill, with none but Persephone to witness this Sisyphean task.

Gumbo expected a leisurely solo run down by the river, until YHC rolled in at the stroke of 5:30 with the Q and a handful of cones & flower pots. We ran to the top of Twin Team, dropping markers along the way, and had a quick COP at the summit: SSH, DQ, Russian Soldiers, Freddie Mercury, hand-release merkins

Then, the latest installment in hills & soul-crushing futility.

Run to each cone/pot, perform the prescribed exercise, then return to the top of Twin Team. The five markers went something like this:

  • Bear Crawl back to summit
  • 25 derkins, run to top
  • 30 uphill WWIIs, run to top
  • 2 Man Triple Check: one man runs to previous cone & back, while the other performs an exercise (run to top @end)
    • mountain climbers
    • LBCs
    • alternate 10 merkins & hold plank for 10-count
  • 20 burpees, run to top

Return to Bettie for numberama, name-o-rama, ‘nouce-a-rama.

MOLESKIN: This is the third iteration of Sisyphus at Twin Team, and I think, the best one yet. The third time running on the triple check leg, knowing I was only coming down in order to go back up again, really drove home the mental element of this workout. Great to force yourself to dig a bit deeper when you think the well’s dry. Sisyphus will definitely make his return, and share with more of the PAX.

  1. “soul-crushing futility” should have been the BB Title as that is exactly what this was. Oh brother was I smoked. I’m both thankful that you showed up and hateful of you at the same time. No doubt we are stronger for enduring that in the gloom this morning — and a special, dark gloom it was on TT Hill this morning. Great to push through that with you this morning Mr. Holland.
