Wet as it was, it was a good morning not to be running 6.2 miles in a Strawberry Shortcake costume. Instead, we gathered eight in western Henrico County – a good bit removed from Monument Avenue – for another installment of GridIron.
As the final few in our group were locking car doors and heading over to our established circle, we knocked out some Invisible Jump Ropes. Following these, we moseyed to the extensive Pillars of Pain (bus shelter) adjacent to Short Pump Middle School for the rest of the startup COP, including IWs, DQs, Hillbillies, Cherry Pickers, and Arm Circles.
We stayed in place at the northwestern end of the Pillars and began a Super 21 involving Merkins and WWII Sit Ups – begin with 1 rep of each exercise, then complete 2 of each, and so on, adding another rep, until 21 of each are completed. We broke up the Super 21 action with a mixed bag of other exercises. YHC started with the idea that we complete 21 of some other exercise at break points during the 21 (5, 10, and so on) but transitioning into completing round after round of LBCs with the idea of the PAX collectively completing 10K together (1,250 each) in honor of that little run going on across town. We got to 600 LBCs before having to finish the final round of Super 21 and to head back to the parking lot.
Assembled in the lot once again, we gathered in a COT and Attila took us out. Coffee at Einstein Bros. afterwards as usual.
