Always 70 and Sunny
Always 70 and Sunny

Prime time under the lights


Ten PAX started their hump day right at Wdog and were met with perfect conditions. With several hundred newbies arriving for the Pay for your Workout version we moved around the AO to get it all in:

COP: SSH, Don Qs, Merkins, Flutterkicks, Scorpion Kicks. Down to Amphitheater and into the newly replaced lights. Make your way up steps: Alternate each step up of 5 HRMs and 5 V-Ups. Mosey over for:

Burpee Road: Split PAX even and head up Blvd for 2 burpees each light, switch and head back to field. Partner up: 3 Sets of 30 Boxing Cockroaches. Mix in a few Pickle Pounders.

Rusty Cage: 4 sets of 5 Pullups & 10 Dips. Back to Carillon field – 3 sets of 20 PLTs, then Wheelbarrow across field and back, twice. Back to flag for 2 MoM. YHC took us out.

NMS – Late April mornings start to offer the true “70 & Sunny” version of Gloom weather rather than the psychological version. PAX of only 10 but all were ready to rock this morning. YHC was not planning on hitting the Amphitheater but when the lights are on there for the first time in the Gloom you take advantage of the gift.

The lights seemed to have a negative effect on the PAX up the steps as now they could clearly see the thick grass and pollen as they went about their HRM and V-Ups. Those without sleeves bore the brunt of this burden. Lab Rat reminded YHC at his Dogpile Q a few weeks ago that we have not done Burpee Road in a while, always a favorite.

When the Q called for 30 Boxing Roaches instead of the normal 20 or 25 several PAX asked him to clarify. Some day soon it will be sets of 40 or 50, pool season is coming.

Much discussion on Mr Holland’s regional status with his recent move. He still is welcome at Tuckahoe but will Daville win him over. As well apparently Sippy is out for the Field Day so expect some RP shenanigans to balance out that loss.

Annoucements: Puppy Pile this Satuarday at 7:05. Breaking Bread this Sunday, see Upchuck. Field Day at Dogpile is May 11th.

Silent Assassin signing off.

  1. Good old fashioned 80s style beat down Honey Do. For once, I knew what all the lingo meant. Complete ab buster.

    Yes, Team RVA is down Hardywood, Sippy Cup and Swirly, so we’ll be competing under protest. Mr. Holland is officially Team RVA for Field Day, as numbers are now an issue (shenanigans).

    Solid Q Honeydo !
    Way to work guys !
    Yep still itching a little bit…
    See y’all in the gloom…

  3. Holland can confirm that WDog is two minutes closer to the Western Front than Hoedown.

    However, Google Maps says that DaVille is three minutes closer still than WDog, though that had not yet been confirmed by YHC.
