Nine of the faithful, and one FNG (Pinto) posted at GridIron on a chilly winter morning. The sun was out and spirits were high. Johnsonville (YHC) took the Q, and this is what went down, more or less:
Warmup with SSH, Cherry Pickers, Hillbillies, Merkins, and Russian Solidiers.
Zig-zag the parking lot running striping, then karaoke to next space, then back run. Etc. the length of the parking lot. This is a routine out of Attilla’s playbook, but it seemed right this morning.
Plank walk around oval curbing surrounding parking lot landscape feature. Run to oval curbing surrounding parking lot landscape feature on the other side. Repeat in the other direction.
Line up for a Native American Run (TM). Proceed to entrance to park, take left, and continue along roadway to track.
COP inside track, continuing with warmup. J-Lo’s, Freddie Mercuries, LBCs, Scorpion Kicks.
Slight mosey onto track where curved area meats straightaway. Run 1/4 mi. at brisk pace.
Inside track, do Jack Webb variation #1 — Traditional Jack Webb (1 merkin, 1×4 arm raises overhead, ascending to 10 merkins, 1×10 arm raises).
Bear crawl length of straightaway to far end of the right side of track where curved area meats straightaway. Run 1/4 mi. at brisk pace.
Inside track, do Jack Webb variation #2 — Dan Taylors (1 copperhead squat, 1×4 back lunges, ascending to 8 squats, 8×4 back lunges).
Crab walk across the endzone of the gridiron to far end of the left side of track where curved area meats straightaway.
Inside track, do Jack Webb variation #3 — Captain Thors (1 WWII situp, 1×4 American hammers, ascending to 10 WWIIs, 10×4 American hammers).
Run backwards along straightway to near end of the left side of track where curved area meats straightaway. Mosey down to the football field nearest the parking area.
On that gridiron, do Jack Webb variation #4 — Mr. Krebs (1 polesmoker heels to heaven, 1×4 crabcakes, ascending to 10 polesmoker heels to heaven, 10×4 crabcakes).
Mosey around perimeter of gridiron and back to VSF.
COT with Attilla taking us out. Nearly all attended coffeeteria.
It was great to have Lugnut back out. I think the last time Lugnut posted at GridIron was about 3 years ago. I was also Q, and he and I were the only pax. The track was covered in ice and snow, and we did 1 mile repeats nearly the entire workout. I guess it took 3 years for him to forgive me.
It was good to have FNG Pinto out. The name came as a reaction to the SWEEET benz he drove. Yes, even the most hardened F3 men feel a bit of envy once in a while. Kudos to Touchma for the headlock. Keep bringing friends — we have plenty of room at Gridiron for more, and the price is right!
YHC may have overdone the warmup a little, feeling a slight headrush during the 2nd plank walk.
For the record, Adderall wore a weight vest. It was an honor to lead a pax of such quality this morning. Jville
