No More Coffee


Five hardened veterans showed up to WDog for the elusive BT beatdown. While Coffee Chat concluded last week, there was still plenty of gloom and pain to be had. Here’s how it went down:


Mosey to the circle at the top of the amphitheater for Helicopters, Abe Vigodas, Dead Man’s Hang, Copperhead Squats, Merkins and some stretching.

The Thang:

Mosey to the Penny Stage to grab some of the remaining coupons. Circle up for a little end of summer muscle beating.

  • Overhead Press x 10
  • Curls x 10
  • Squats x 10
  • Block Merkins x 10

Complete 3 sets in cadence (1st set was 2-count), replace coupons, then onto the hill where all the construction equipment lives. Split in 2 groups for the Dora (100 WW2’s, 200 2-count Flutterkicks, 300 LBCs). Timer runs to the bottom of the hill and back. Plank for the 6.

Mosey to the Amphitheater for Ascending Dips (1-18). Plank at top for the 6. Quick jog around the loop and BTTF.

COT: BT took us out.

Announcements: Labor Day Convergence at DogPile, F3RVA Anniversary at Gridiron, Sit and Sip and Beer Mile (see Faceplant) all coming up.

NMS: YHC needed less running and more boot camp leading up to the BRR, so a Q was in order. For the most part, mumble chatter was respectful. Some regulars were/are missed but we know they will be back in short order. Faceplant was happy with the Abe Vigoda cadence which made the Q happy. YHC had to share a story about his 14 yo (F3 Rocky Top) who has been delighted in his new-found albeit slender musculature and has not been afraid to parade around the house showing it off. Oh to be young again, but I wouldn’t trade it for the aches and pains shared by all of us in the gloom. Fall is here and the hours are getting short, so make the most of every one of them! BT out!
