Trying to Stay Warm


7 stalwarts fought off the fart sack for YHC’s return to the Q sheet after sleeping through the last sign-up. Clear skies, cool temps, fall mist and a heavy fog brought back a sneak peak of swamp season at Heartbreak Ridge. While the PAX shivered and mumbled over the shorts-only mandate, the Miata’s older brother Bolted into the circle and Ronnie emerged. 530? It’s go time.

Mosey around the Bus Lot and back to the fields for COP

SSHs, DQs, Imperial Walkers, Merkins, Arm Circles. Warm? Let’s Boogie.

The Thang

Exercise I – Descending Deconstructed Burpees

Mosey to the top of Heartbreak Hill. Instructions to run down and up HB Hill then 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Deconstructed Burpees
