Merkins? Just a few


Six intrepid men arose to meet a decently warm November morn, enough that some bare legs were present. Here is how it went down.

Mosey to blacktop for COP: SSH, LBC’s, DQ, arm circles, helicopters.

Mosey to end of field for some run and fun.

Run 100% of field, 100 LBC’s, return to start, 20 HRM.

Run 75% of field, 75 plank jacks, return, 20 HRM.

Run 50% of field, 50 SSH, return, 20 HRM.

Run 25% of field, 25 2 count flutter kicks, return, 20 HRM.

Run 10% of field, 10 merkins, return, 20 HRM, Al Gore for the six.

Mosey to playground for 11’s, Iron Mikes and Iron Hulk, because, well, more merkins. Bear crawl and lunge in between.

Mosey back to flag, numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.


Most of the PAX had been present for Mudface’s merkin challenge yesterday at The Anvil, and probably would have been okay with few or zero today, but this was not to be. YHC did try to break them up between other exercises, however. The 4th F was omnipresent this morning, with Corned Beef and Trout being the main suppliers, and Mudface was in fine form from the beginning, with some Emoji-like counting during COP, along with almost kicking YHC accidentally on purpose during the 11’s. As usual, it was a lot of fun to lead, and congrats to Beulah for posting the first time on Monday and every day this week. 231 Merkins by YHC’s count. Nicely done!

As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing.
