Caravan of cars at HBR


An even dozen, including 1 visitor, arrived at varying times to Heartbreak Ridge on a gorgeous morning. Again no Q so Handshake started us off:

COP: SSH, Don Qs, Merkins, Flutterkicks, Hairy Rocketts (horizonal version) aka inverted upside down Scorpion kicks. Back to main lot for: Quad Check – 1) B2tW, Flutterkicks, Merkins, Run lot & back. Head down to Jerkin Gym: 3 Sets of 10 Jerkins. Pass Q to Offshore:

Over to Heartbreak hill – Triple check of Merkins, WWIIs, Bernie Sanders up hill.

Hand Q to Garbage Plate, 1 lap of Indian Run then over to ramp: Crawl Bear up hill, bar shimmy down. 2 times. Q over to Honeydo: 3 sets of PLTs, back to flag for some Pickle Pounders. YHC took us out.

NMS – Today was textbook Hot Potato where PAX were pushed for the full 45 min. Quad check got us going from Handshake then other Qs never let up. Good to have Stump Jumper back visiting RVA. He debated whether on posting at Spider Run or HBR but in the end he gave us the perfect dozen number to work with. P-Trap, the married version, was back out having resting his shoulder injury. No clue whether the shoulder injury occurred on the Honeymoon or not, hence the need for more Pickle Pounder practice.

Fireman Ed was extra mouthy today, with his JETS drubbing on the Skins still on his mind. Low, low times for those who still HTTR. Lighthouse is officially a HBR regular now as YHC can’t remember a week he wasn’t there. Merkin count estimated in the 180-200 range based on Quad & Triple check inclusions. Your mileage may vary.

  1. Thanks Garbage Plate! I’m loving the larger Heartbreak Ridge. I’ll also loving this back-to-back Quad Check. I wonder if this could be the new version or a Beast…. 45 minutes or some number of Check. Maybe 8×8?
