Rolling Rocks Up A Hill


Six brave souls tested positive for Sisyphus this morning, after nearly a year of dormancy (March 29, 2019 to be exact). Here’s how it goes:

Mosey to the top of Twin Team, dropping a few flower pots and cones along the way. COP at the summit: SSH, Imperial Walkers, helicopters, DQ, Russian Soldiers.

Sisyphus: PAX runs downhill to each of five markers, performs an exercise, then returns to the summit.
1 – bear crawl back to summit
2 – 30 derkins
3 – 30 uphill facing WWIIs
4 – 2-man triple check: one runs up to #3 and back, while the other alternates 5 merkins and 5-count plank
5 – 15 burpees

After returning to the top following round 5, collect cones & pots, mosey back to Bettie for numbers, names, ‘nouncements.

It was great to be back at my favorite AO. Moving farther north has made it a bit too long a drive on a normal work day, but work days are anything but normal these days, so YHC made the most of it! As always, Sisyphus is a real mental beatdown as well as a physical one. And, having to listen to YHC spout out Greek mythology on the downhill trips.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Mr. Holland is opening a new AO in Glen Allen next week! Come check out The Last Resort this coming Monday morning at Longdale Elementary School. Check out the pre-blast for more info. SYTIG!

    That was my first time doing The Sisyphus. Might it be the last?

    All joking aside that was tough. Thanks for throwing down the Challenge Card and getting me to take a drive to Twin Team.
