Amazon.com: That's Not Sweat That's My Fat Melting 15 oz Coffee ...

Six early birds gathered in the random parking lot on River for today’s iteration of First Watch. Pleasantries were exchanged then off we went to begin the melting process. Quick mosey to the triangle for COP that included:

20x SSH
10x Don Quixote’s (complete with spine adjustments on #1)
20x LBCs
10x Merkins
15x Imperial Walkers

The Thang
Mosey to Cameron Road for mailbox bingo. Run down Cameron and do 3 burpees for every mailbox we pass on the left and 5 jump squats for those we pass on the right. Stop at the bottom of the hill.

Triple up for triple check. Shoulder tap merkins (audibled to just shoulder taps after round 1), freddie mercuries, third person runs up the hill to the 4th driveway.

Continue up Cameron until the end repeating the burpee/jump squat combo from earlier.

Turn down Ross and do 10 flutter kicks for mailboxes on the left and 5 merkins for mailboxes on the right. Audible to alternating mailboxes half way down.

Work our way back up Ross by partnering up. Partner 1 does lunges while partner two runs partway up the hill and back. Switch and repeat.

Second round with bear crawls and running. Joyous.

Mosey back to the flag where we complete a round of ring of fire.

Numbers, names, lots of fellowship then YHC took us out.

YHC won’t lie. There were times today where that sucked. Humidity and heat was kind of brutal. Sometimes YHC thought that running was better and other times exercises. In the end, they both sucked. Plenty of sweat prints left on the road this morning.

Conversation revolved around events of last evening and the comical rules of local pools opening.

Nice day for a cotton shirt Handshake. Enjoy the day gentlemen.




  1. The hot pavement oven for the road exercises and the smell of skunk really completed the full experience.

    I am intrigued by the magical section of ice cold road. Maybe we were in a hollow or perhaps I was having a heat stroke. Hard to tell.

  2. Good Q Splinter. Nothing like starting the day at 0430 with a nice square punch in the face of humidity when you walk out the front door.

    Handshake’s shirt was not breathing I can tell you that.

  3. Next week we need to do same route but stop and do exercises on lawns with sprinklers on.

  4. Sprinklers would have been a perfect addition today.

    Lockjaw – I have no idea why the bottom of Ross felt like spring compared to the rest.
