Double Triple Check


Twelve early birds descended upon the mean streets of the west end of Richmond to see what surprises YHC had up the sleeves. The mumble chatter was going strong even before the clock struck 5:30. TYA and FICO were synced up with matching outfits this AM.


YHC was sure to do all the offical Q announcements at the start of today because there was a FNG in the mix and YHC wanted to make sure they knew all the rules. The PAX helped with some of the pre announcements. No stretching for today, YHC wanted to leave that to the end, so it was off to the races. Mosey on over to the tennis courts for the main event.


Once we arrived at the tennis courts YHC was surprised to find a white board with some great exercises written down (inspired by Bodos). Everyone partnered up and there was an odd number at first but out of the darkness emerged Kokomo, so Antharx had a buddy now.

The way a double triple checked worked was as follows. The board had a series of exercises, and one partner ran around the entirety of the Mary Mumford campus (0.7 miles to be precise), while the other partner went through all the exercises on the board, and when the partner came back they picked up where the other had left off, and the next partner ran the lap. Each partner runs the loop three times, and when you get to the bottom of the list you start back over at the top. Total mileage was somewhere just shy of 3 miles.

Here’s the exercises – courtesy of Bodos:

  • 100 SSH
  • 90 Squats
  • 80 LBCs
  • 15 Burpees
  • 70 Mountain Climbers (two count)
  • 60 Merkins
  • 50 American Hammers (two count)
  • 15 Burpees
  • 40 WW2s
  • 30 Flutter Kicks (two count)
  • 20 Burpees
  • 10 Diamond Merkins

As the teams finished we circled up for an ab ring of fire. We got through two rounds, which YHC led everyone with varying heights of leg raises. YHC picked APDs.

Mosey on back to the flag and picked up Kokomo again on the way back.

The PAX welcomed FNG Prefontaine. Pre seemed to fit right in with the mumble chatter crowd and we look forward to his return – sans running.
