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…

As promised.. No track at WTH for the 5 pax that came to get some good ole fashion run focused bootcamp. Ran over to the gazebo at the Goose lake.

As the sun began to rise, five friends gathered at the trailhead, their breath visible in the crisp morning air. With determination in their eyes, they set off on their 3-mile journey through the winding paths of the short pump park forest. Along the way, they encountered their first challenge: 25 burpees—5 then run a loop (5x). That was Pigskins favorite. Despite the burn in their muscles, they cheered each other on, pushing through together. As they continued their run, they reached a clearing where they decided to incorporate a four corners exercise, twice over, adding a playful twist to…

3 showed this chilly morning to help Whitesnake get ready for his 10 mile Bear creek run coming in a few weeks. The thing: mosey to parking decks at West broad village. First trip up, stop at each level 10 merkins, 10 two count crossover LBCs( elbow to opposite knee). Run back to bottom. 2nd trip up: 10 SSH and 15 WW2s, run back to bottom, mosey to gazebo at lake. 3 sets of 15 dips, 10 durkins. Mosey around lake back to flag. 3.7 miles covered.

5 faithful gathered this cool morning and got our steps in today. Living up to the running boot camp we covered 4 miles today. We ran to our popular neighborhood and hit the Cul-De-Sacs. First few we did 10 Merkins and 10 WW2s, after those we bumped up to 15 or each, on the way back to the flag we took the long way around the lake. 135 merkins, 135 WW2s completed with 4 miles run. Thought we lost Pigskin for a few mins at one point. A good day to workout! Reminders of frozen triangle coming up, closed in…

Just like Magellan, Leif Erikson, & James Cook before us, the WTH group of three went on a dangerous expedition. This one was to find the rumored Wellesley tunnel. After almost a mile and half of running, we discovered an unusual entrance hidden beneath the roots of an ancient oak tree. The entrance, covered by invisible thick vines and moss, seemed to lead to an underground tunnel. Unable to resist the allure of the unknown, the trio decided to explore. Descending into the mysterious tunnel, we found ourselves in a dimly lit passage adorned with symbols and carvings, hinting at…

Three heroes braved the elements on a very cold morning. Wise people said that parking deck is warmer, so this is where we went. First round we did 5 Burpies on every turn and went all the way up. But the outside level was icy, so on the next round we decided to stay inside. On other rounds we did 25 Merkins, 25 Squats and 25 American Hammers. Back to the Flag got us to 3.5 miles. It is good to know that it will get warmer… eventually. P.S. My usual apologies for being late with Backblast. White Snake: Thank…

Three of the most dedicated WTH models and YHC got together this morning in Short Pump for some fun and to perfect the Blue Steel pose. I wore my new shirt yesterday but everyone else wore them today. Lighthouse was wearing his new orange F3 shirt and apologized “I’m sorry that good looking people like us made you throw up and feel bad about yourself.” Pinto, with his new shirt, gave us some backstory: “Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating…

I need to write a backblast for yesterday’s workout. At 5:30, somebody nose what we are going to do today. It turned out to be YHC. We decided to follow our knows to the Dave & Buster parking deck for stairclimbing. I sniffed out a shorter distance so that I would get there about the same time as Lighthouse, Pinto and Whitesnake. Actually, I got there slightly before they did and kept running in their direction. Right at the corner of the parking deck, we bumped noses. I no, running that close to the corner was poor judgement on my…

We arrived at Pocahontas at 5:27. It was raining. At 5:30, it was still raining. So we took a vote. Pig, Skin and Pigskin were all in favor of staying dry. We voted to drive to the Dave and Buster Parking Deck. For the third week in a row, we ran up the stairs in the stairwell, across the parking deck to the other stairwell, down to the bottom of the other stairwell, returned to the starting place and did 20 merkins. There was one slight revision. After running to the top of the stairs, we ran back down 1…
