An asphalt Field of Dreams at SOT


8 men posted, 3 ran for their lives, leaving 5 to tackle the asphalt at SOT, it went something like this:

Mosey around the parking lot an circle up near the cars for COP in case any LIFOs show up (none did). COP included:

  • DQs
  • Helicopters
  • SSHs
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Tempo Merkins
  • LBCs


Curb Crawl – Mosey to the front of the school for a good old fashioned curb crawl – up to 3, repeat 3, and back down. bear crawl/crawl bear in between – you know the drill.

Mosey down to the large parking lot that is no longer packed with buses since they are out picking up kids.

MODIFIED FIELD OF DREAMS – in honor of the World Series conclusion last night I grabbed the open Q slot late and needed to infuse some baseball theme. This is usually done on a baseball field, but today our field was lush asphalt. Split up and use the “pitcher’s mound” to modify for the 5-PAX. Each man does the identified exercise at each base AMRAP until relieved by the man running from the previous spot. The pitcher was our trigger and had to do 10 burpees as the timer, then run to home plate and relieve the man there. Other bases and exercises were:

  • Home – [exercise escapes me right now – but it was brutal, I assure you]
  • First – Squats
  • Second – Merkins
  • Third – LBCs

Finished it off with 32 SSHs OYO for the 32 years between Dodger WS victories.

Wall Time– Mosey around the side of the building for a beautiful piece of well-lit brick wall for some Donkey Kicks and DEEP Squats. Round 1, 10 of each and plank for 1 minute. Round 2, 20 of each and plank for 1 minute. Round 3, 30 of each and plank for 1 minute.

Lunge Alley – making our way around the back of the school, lunge the lit alley way and watch out for the car.

Mosey the rest of the way and down the hill to the bottom.

The Suck (not many exercises are good with a PAX of 5, but the Suck is good no matter what the number). 4 exercise stations, 1 rabbit. Rabbit runs up the hill and back and triggers the switch to the next station. Stations were:

  • WWIIs
  • Burpees with a jump and a squat at the end
  • Box Cutters
  • No cheat merkins – HRM with Shoulder Taps at top

2 rounds

Ring of Fire – mosey back to the flag for a ROF as follows. Start in plank, first man does 10 merkins, then 10 hello dollies, then stands in Al Gore. Next man starts merkins when previous man switches to dollies.

3 Minutes of Mary including Freddie Mercuries, Flutter Kicks and 6 inches

COT, welcome runners back, Numbers, Names and YHC took us out.


Prayers for Offshore and his family after the passing of his MIL.

Shoe drive continues through Saturday. Let’s get to 100.


Great to be out this morning. It was a great morning for a workout. I saw the open Q slot while watching the World Series and decided to grab it. I’m glad I did. Thanks for letting me lead. Great work guys.

No More Gumbo For You!
