Am I at the right place?


Two eager men arrived for a beat down in the dark, beautiful cold morning of Batteau. What ensued goes something like this…

Mosey to the Maintenance building for a quick warmup COP:

-Don Quiotes, Windmills, SSH, Flutter Kicks, American Hammers, Merkins

The Thang:

Flange: Mosey over the steps for 11’s.  Hand release Merkins at top of stairs, dips at the bottom with the benches provided just for us.

Faceplant has an idea: Mosey down to the Lake.  Perform an exercise at each light post, completing the full loop around the Lake.  10 WWII’s at each light post, alternating a run and lunges between each post…this took a little longer than we expected.

Back to Flange: Run one more complete lap around the Lake, take a right up the paved hill, left half way up and back to the “flag”.  Five minutes to go…let’s do a curb crawl.  Start one side, bear crawl to other and do 1 Incline Merkin, bear crawl back and perform 2 Derkins, so on up to 10.  25 LBC’s, 25 Freddie Mercury’s.

Circle up…uh face each other.

YHC took us out.

NMS: YHC arrived at 5:25 this morning with no others in sight.  Could I be in the wrong place…there’s the stone house!  Where’s Swirly or Vinny?  Surely, I’ll see Sippy Cup’s bouncing headlamp coming any second now?  5:27 and YHC sees headlights!  Faceplant pulls up probably expecting to see more than just YHC there, but with only a couple of minutes to spare and a brief conversation, we were off.  Our quick intelligence at 5:27 in the morning told us that folks had given all they had at CSAUP over the weekend and needed a well deserved Monday morning rest.  Congrats to those that crushed it over the weekend…much respect!  YHC and Faceplant were unable to join in the fun Saturday, so this morning presented a great way to start the week.  Thanks to Faceplant for offering some help today and allowing YHC to stay on target for his first official VQ this week.  Also, thanks to Faceplant for keeping me on pace and pushing each other.  Make it a great day, all!

  1. Great work fellas! Way to push yourselves. Not easy to do in the cold with small numbers. We were at Hoedown for Kubota’s one year F3 anniversary.
