A Properly constructed Dora


7 HBR regulars and 1 visitor from TN posted to Heartbreak Ridge on a humid morning. Conspiracy coming in at 5:29 gave us an even 8. We got to work, some would say 43 seconds early:

COP: SSH, Hairy Rockets, Merkins, Flutterkicks, Scorpion Kicks (per loose goose request), Don Qs. Mosey over to Heartbreak Hill for a:

Dora 123: 100 V-Ups, 200 Merkins, 300 Jump Squats while partner runs up & down Heartbreak Hill. Plank and then over to Jerkin Gym:

3 rounds of: 10 Jerkins & 20 PLTs

Finish up with loop around Parking lot: Alternate Bear Crawl and Lunges with 2 Burpees at each set of Arrows. Call for time and back to flag.

NMS: Good to be back on the Q at Heartbreak Ridge. YHC had to alter his tentative plan when Sample from Kingsport arrived, so we went right to the hill for the Dora. Several PAX members question the sequence of exercises of the Dora of 100 V-Ups and 200 Merkins but this ain’t YHC’s first Q.

Good to see Loose Goose back out and Handshake in the gloom on his M’s appointed morning to workout. It was nice of the County to cut the grass on the hill and near the Jerkin Gym, however all PAX were covered in fresh grass clippings from the V-Ups, Merkins, and PLTs. The M told YHC I still had grass on my legs after the first shower so had to jump back in, always a good sign.

Sample says he’ll be posting around F3RVA the rest of the week. We told him if he needs to take it easy for a morning be sure to post somewhere SOJ.
