The “Crabtree”


Three First Watch newbies and two veterans hit the mean streets of River Road this morning in the very early gloom. After Hardywood and BT worked their way around the back of the church trying to find the correct parking lot, it was time to roll.

Mosey to the front of the church for:

COP (early ’80s edition):

Deadman Hang Regular, left leg over right leg, right leg over left leg


Don Quixotes

Russian Soldiers


Suzanne Somers’ both sides (a Hardywood favorite)

Freddie Mercury’s

Mosey down River Road and make a stop at Saab’s driveway.

Face away from house and complete 20 Monkey Humpers

Mosey down River Road some more until the little bat cave entrance to the UR Football practice field.

Examine the beautiful turf and set cones up for:

Doracides – Deconstructed Burpee Edition

Partner up and complete:

100 Hands on ground kick feet back (1st third of a Burpee)

200 Merkins

300 Jump Squats

Runner runs to first cone and performs 1 Burpee runs back to baseline, then runs to second cone and performs 2 Burpees then runs back to baseline, then runs to third cone and performs 3 Burpees and runs back to baseline, then switch with partner.

Hand Q over to EF Hutton. EF Hutton stares at the 7 man football sled and makes a comment like “I really want to use that sled for something” but instead heads over to the field hockey goals. Grab a field hockey goal and complete a Pull-Up/Monkey Humper Jack Webb. 1 Pull-up/4 Monkey Humpers 2/8 3/12 4/16……10/40

10 minutes left, time to head back up River Road.

Stop at Saab’s house for 15 Alabama Prom Dates in cadence. Admire the sweat angels in Saab’s driveway.

Head back to the Shovel Flag and circle up for:

Burpee Ring of Fire (like we haven’t done enough Burpees yet.) Each pax call out 1, 2 or 3 Burpees without repeats.

LBC’s x 20

6 inches or 60 inches, whichever you prefer for 30 seconds.

Time up!

Numberama, Namearama, Announcements, and YHC took us out!


EF Hutton’s Father’s surgery went well though he has a long road to recovery. Please pray for him.

Shakedown’s surgery went well and he is now in recovery/rehab stage. Please pray that he heals up correctly and is back out with us soon.

Hardywood and DTH are leading the July 4th Convergence on July 4, 2020 at Brown’s Island/Tredegar. 6am this year. It’s too damn hot at 7am!

Offshore is leading the 3rd F Bible Study on Tuesday, June 9 at 8pm on Zoom.


It was great to see some new faces at First Watch this morning. Swirly was his usual early self parking at 4:30 so he and YHC got to catch up for a few minutes. Hardywood and BT had trouble finding the correct parking lot even though YHC texted very good directions to them yesterday.

This First Watch workout is now called “The Crabtree” YHC wanted to name it “The Saabski” but Swirly informed me that is the offical name of the Spider Run route that was run yesterday. Maybe one day, Saab will step out of his house and run the 1/4 mile to the AO and join us 🙂

Plenty of Burpees and Pull-ups this morning and the Pax crushed them. Well done all! Hardywood and EF Hutton left at 6am to head over to WDOG where Hardywood was the Q and both were after an early Wednesday morning Double-Dip!

Have a great day all and SYITG!
