Last Resort of One


YHC volunteered to take the reigns of this awesome AO and I pulled into the parking lot at 5:26, it was raining and windy so no shovel flag. I wait and with no one around I decide to run the mile to get that off the list for today. While on the run I had no reflectors, no head lap (left at home) and it was very dark with the heavy cloud cover. I passed two people who were walking in this weather on the way out to the turn around spot, turn around and return to the school. Still all alone, no one with the exception of a large pile of mulch and a county vehicle being stored on the lot.

My first solo workout since joining F3 and here is what went down:

IT - Pennywise Type Beat ( FREE SCARY TRAP INSTRUMENTAL) by ...
Scary thoughts on the lonely run


Return from the run go the the main entrance of the school and perform 20 SSH, 10 DQ, 10 Imperial Walkers, 15 Arm Circles(10 small and 5 big) , reverso, 20 LBC’s, 20 Merkins.


So now it is really raining hard and I start with a Triple check.

Triple Check 1 – 20 Merkins, 30 Squats and run a lap around the parking lot (staying clear of the storm drains…and Pennywise!!!) I do this 3 times.

Triple Check 2 – 10 Burpees, 30 LBC’s and run a lap around the parking lot doing that rotation 3 times.

4 corners Escalator

Start with 10 burpees, Bernie Saunders to second stop and 20 BD’s EACH leg(this hurt on the 2nd and 3rd attempts), back to start 10 Burpees, B.S. to 2nd corner 20 2ct BD’s run to 3rd corner on 30 2-count mountain climbers, back to start, 10 burpees, B.S to 2nd corner 20 2ct BD’s, run to 3rd corner 30 2ct Mountain climbers and run to 4th corner for 40 SSH.


Finished with 2 minute to spare and did various Plank positions staying quiet to not wake the neighbors but heard Swirly calling out ‘Regular, right hand high, regular….on for 2 minutes!)

Changed shirt and drove home the the day.
