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
- 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.
