Always 70 and Sunny

A bold move


It was a cool, not quite crisp, morning at Hoedown for 11 dudes to kick the week off to a solid start. Here’s how it went:

COP: a quick jog to the upper parking lot for SSH x 15, DMH x 10, slow DQ x 10, LBC x 10, Scorpion x 10, HRM x 10, 20x Freddy Mercuries and mosey to the back field.

No sense in easing into it… let’s just start off with a set of 11’s… pull ups and burpees. Some groans and little mumble chatter but we rocked it. Followed up with a couple lengths of the back field, partner up and alternate runs with lunges. Round two was alternating run and the all new gorilla shuffle; an instant Hoedown classic.

Mosey to the upper lot for basketball plank challenge. PAX held various plank positions on the fence side of the lot and completed 3 sets of 10x HRM while each person traversed the lot, made a basket and returned.

Head down to the asphalt hill for a quickie triple check. Timer was a crawl bear up the hill while others did LBCs and jack squats. Mosey to the railings for three sets of 8 jerkins.

Finished up the morning with some Mary – 10x WWII, 25x Flutters, 15x Hello Dolly, 10x Rosalitas, 20x LBC and some stretching. Numberama, Namerama, Announcements (RAMM amateur ride on Friday with Spit, Thanksgiving convergence 6a at Mumford, Forest Hill Black Friday challenge) and YHC took us out.

Moleskine: Great work today gents – I must have had Q energy when coming up with a plan… the workout seemed harder than it looked on a 3×5 card. For those counting Merkins, tally up a 40x total for the morning. Until next time, GP

  1. Hardest part was trying to plank for 5 minutes on the ice rink asphalt. I’m definitely going to steal the gorilla shuffle.

  2. Great Q Garbage Plate! Enjoy making the trip to Tuckahoe this morning. What a start with 11’s! Pull up and Burpees, ouch!
