All Lions, no Lambs


Twelve spring seekers convened under the lamp light eagerly awaiting today’s First Watch Q. Would headlamps be necessary? Only if desired. Welcome the 8 year Kotter and the first time FW-er then off we went. Longer mosey around the triangle then west on River to the typical convening spot in front of the church for:


  • 20x SSH
  • 10x Helicopters (with an audible suggested for Upchuck)
  • 10x DQs
  • 15x Arm Circles both directions for our first time watcher
  • 20x Hillbillies (slow to fast)
  • 10x Mountain Climbers
  • 10x Freddie Mercuries
  • Probably something else in there too

Short mosey to the back parking lot via the carpool road, stopping at each speed bump for a courtesy burpee.

The Thang

Partner up for touch a tree. Partner exercises while other partner touches 3 trees. 4 rounds. Merkins / bear crawl, skip / jump squat, run / WWIIs, run / burpees.

Skeedaddle south on Ridge, stopping for 2 more burpees, then heading east on River to Country Squire for a game of 2 forward, 1 back. Two mailboxes forward running, 10 merkins, 1 mailbox back backward running, 20 LBCs. LBCs for the six. Continue 5 times until we meet at S Ridge.

Native people run back to the parking lot.

Triple check. APDs, plank, 10x burpees as the pace car. BTTVSF.

Numbers, names, difficulty renaming an 8 year Kotter, then YHC took us out.


Lively bunch this AM as is usual for First Watch. Great to have Machismo out for his 1 year anniversary and Jelly (temporarily renamed to Billy Ray) after an 8 year hiatus.

Sorry (not sorry) for all the running. You all know YHC enjoys cardio.

Splinter out.
