The Partner Mile


Four men left their warm homes to venture into cold parking lot of Atlee High School. YHC had held onto the Partner Mile idea for a while in hopes that an even number of PAX members would post. Today was the day. This is how it went.

COP – All IC

SSH, Don Quixotes, Helicopters, One legged bench assisted lunges, other leg, arm circles, reverso, Raised APD dips.

Mosey to the middle school track

The Partner Mile (maybe we only did the Partner 1000) – For 4 laps (maybe only 2.5), do the following with a partner for each lap:

  • Partner Carry 100 meters
  • 10 Booyah Merkins
  • Run the turn
  • 20 PLTs each
  • Wheelbarrow 100 meters
  • 10 Partner Plank Derkins each
  • Run the turn
  • 20 pullups between the partners

Mosey back to flag for 2 MOM – American Hammers, Freddie Mercuries, Heels-to-Heaven, One legged APD, other leg, countdown from 30 – 0 for 6 inches.

COT – Numberarama, Name-O-Rama, Announcements, YHC took us out.


What a great day to post on this MLK day. It was chilly but the COP followed by the Partner Mile quickly warmed us up. Having not done the Partner Mile before, YHC was unsure how long it would take. It appears with any type of mosey to the track and a COP, 45 minutes might not be enough time. Add into this several shoulder issues, multiple audibles were necessary including substituting the Wheelbarrow for lunges and shortening the length to 2.5 laps instead of 4 laps. When YHC first joined F3 almost 7 years ago, Partner Carries and Wheelbarrows were common especially at Dogpile. It’s been a while since YHC had done either of them. It was nice having them back, well maybe just the Partner Carry.

Announcements – The Frozen Triangle is this Saturday at Dogpile at 6 AM. This is a can’t miss CSAUP. It should be completed by 9 AM.

It was an honor to lead this outstanding group of men today. Have a great day everybody!

Gotta Run!
