In the Wood Chipper


9 Strong were undeterred by the previous nights deluge and assembled at 45MOM to get their heart rate going for the day. It went something like this…

Mosey to blacktop for Warmup…Dead Man’s Hang, 10 Helicopters, 13 Don Quixotes, 10 Arm Circles (Forward/backward), 15 Imperial Walkers, 20 SSH

Slightly longer mosey over to Reveille Church Pavilion. Pair up in Pavilion and do 5 rounds of one partner doing 10 Abyss Merkins while the other partner did SSH. With the heart rate up, we then did a Triple Check with one man doing dips, one doing LBCs, and the pacer running the loop of the parking lot.

We moseyed back to the tennis courts at Mary for some Tracers. One round down all 4 courts, one round back. Up to the net, back to the service line, shuffle along service line, up to middle of net, shuffle to far side, backwards to baseline – repeat on each of the 4 courts.

Final test was under the Pavilion at MM where we paired up again with one partner doing 10 Pole Smokers the other doing Lt Dans – 5 rounds. Much discussion was had about the poles. When done, we were at time and moseyed back to the flag.

Numberama, Namerama and YHC took us out.

We welcome FNG Chipper who was dubbed “Fargo” very quickly and without any debate (thus backblast title). Fargo has never seen “Fargo” the movie so he has some homework. Welcome Fargo! Hope to see you out again soon.

A good reminder was shared by a couple of the Pax. You never know when or what someone is struggling with and they may never tell you – unless you ask how they’re doing. Check in on your family, friends, coworkers – just say hi and ask how they’re doing.
