Mosey back towards BWES.

On the hill, complete Clockwork Merkins. YHC had to redeem himself after botching this exercise yesterday.

Worlds Fastest Triple Check with runner going downhill to the pole and back, Other exercises were Hand Release Merkins and Donkey Kicks.

Lunge Walk and Walking Arm Circles back to the flag.


YHC lead us out.

Final Thoughts:
Terrible backblast title, but a great workout by all! I was informed that the runners did 9 miles – we never saw them after 5:30. It was great to have Offshore roll in to complete my dream of doing a Triple Check. Thrilla Gorilla’s proved to very challenging and quite the leg buster. I don’t think any of us will be selected for the hurdling team. Safe travels for Doozy and his family!
