A Simple Hot Potato Plan


Five gentlemen gathers on the grounds of Atlee High School at various times for a simple plan. We would run, do a hot potato bootcamp, then run again. This is what likely occurred.

Opus leads the PAX in a mosey along the road that goes around the campus that is just shy of 1.5 miles.

Spit takes the lead

COP – SSH, Arm Circles, Imperial Walkers, Flutter Kicks, American Hammers, Hand Released Merkins, probably something else.

The Thang

WW2/Merkin – Do this 20 times – one WW2, then flip over and do one Merkin

Bulkhead takes the lead

Dora – With a partner, do the following: 100 scull crushers, 200 snow angles on your stomach, 300 mountain climbers while other partner runs around parking lot.

Opus leads the PAX in a final mosey around the campus for another 1.5 miles.

Phonics takes the lead and calls for stretching on your own for 3 minutes.

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


Good to be out this morning for perfect weather and a perfect group to exercise with. YHC had nothing to do with the plan but it was simple and worked out great. Because the plan kept us together, much mumblechatter occurred. Spit ran 30 minutes before we got there and then left 30 minutes early so he missed out on the Dora and final run. Over the next few weeks, YHC hopes to post more because he will likely be out all of March and much of April.

Gotta Run!
