We started with a miscommunication, causing Pigskin to miss COP. After running to W. Broad Village, we did some Arm Circles, DQs, Cherry Pickers, SSHs, Mt Climbers, Flutters, and Merkins. Pinto then led us straight to Pigskin. Now that the crew was together and warmed up, we got to the main event: BLAMPS.  This was called because I enjoyed BLIMPS, but couldn’t think of an exercise beginning with the letter I.  So, we did BLAMPS: 10 Burpees, 10 Lt Dans, 20 American Hammers, 10 Merkins, 20 Plank Jacks and 10 Speed Skaters – running around the perimeter of the parking…

A magnificent seven assembled in the Huguenot Highschool parking lot, rucksacks on their backs for a guided tour through the rolling Stratford Hills. Mosey down to the lower parking lot for stretching to allow for any last minute stragglers to arrive. After DMH, Helicopters, Runner’s Lunge, and the like it’s clear that seven truly is the number of completion and we are ready to roll. Marching back to the flag would be too easy! Bear crawl up the grassy knolls, hit 10 squats at the top, lunge across the parking lot, and repeato the sequence until we’re back at the…

4 PAX with varying degrees of intention to run met at Midlo middle today. 5:30 hit, some discussion of running route/plan and then we were off. Plan was to do some intervals with one minute faster, two minutes slower. Got in a little over 4 miles today and everyone pushed and got in a good run this morning! nmm great to run with yall this morning. Good to do something a little different. I haven’t been posting that much lately and it felt great to get after it a bit today. I like that doing intervals lends itself to picking…

A dirty dozen arrived for a tour-de-grooooove. Here’s the thing… 4’s 5’s 6’s all head up Fairway to Iris, past St Stephens to Grooooove. Heading East, 4’s and 6’s tale left on Seneca which loops around to Tuckahoe, and on back to Grove. 4’s head back to Iris whence they came 5’s and 6’s take Tuckahoe south to Cary.

So State Farm and YHC decided to do a little extra credit this morning and did a pull up session for morning wood. We were planking in between sets of pull ups when YHC felt a fart coming on. Decided to try and squeeze it out and realized it was not just a fart just a bit too late! YHC had to hot trot back to the vehicle where luckily, there’s always a supply of Huggies. We’ll spare the details between here and the start of the Q. 530 came as did Posh, and we moseyed over to the Taco…

A terrific ten, including 2 tardy PAX, took off behind QMS to start their day at HBR. Bottle Cap from Waxhall(?) joined us from NC so YHC gave him a tour of the premier West End Tuesday AO.

Great to be back in the gloom with the Pax after taking nearly a week off laid up with Covid. Only one way to catch Swoop (and many others now) in the big data…get out and post. Anyway, according to the unidentified creature that puked on the street in Rountrey, here is how it went down: Long freaking mosey from Alamo to the Rountrey construction area (about a mile). Stretching. Demonstrated our new merkin style (Topeka two step). Mosey on for….. Construction site triple check: LBCs, lunges, with timer running to run pile. This is where we lost Hermey (twisted…
