S.L.E.I.G.H Ride

AO: Grindstone

When: 12/12/2018

QIC: Whiz

PAX (): Dumpster, Bartman, McDuff

YHC has been knocked out of commission for the last month with a nasty case of bronchitis and that combined with travel and vacation has left me out of sorts and out of shape, to say the least.  With my 2nd round of steroids, antibiotics, and antihistamines almost complete and no more travel scheduled until 2019, I was ready to return to the gloom and pay the penance for my lengthy absence.  4 of us took the DRP and suffered through a new Christmas-themed routine I made up.


SSH, Windmills, Copperhead Merkins – IC


Santa’s SLEIGH routine is a combination of BOMBS and BLIMPS with just the right amount of Christmas spirit to roast your chestnuts over the fire that is your legs throughout.

S – SSH IC x 50

L – Lunges x 100

E – e2K x 150

I – Imperial Squat Walkers x 200

G – Gas Pumpers x 250

H – Hillbillies x 300

No partners and each leg counts as one, where applicable.  Do 5 Burpee Broad Jumps in between each letter (to simulate misfit toys parachuting out of Santa’s sleigh, of course).  In the interest of time, the 6 finishes with the second to last PAX after each letter to stay together.

The run back to the flag actually helped loosen things up and we made it back at exactly 6:15 on the red-nose.


Prayers for Bartman’s neighbor, who had heart surgery today to address some low pulse issues.  Prayers also for the many who don’t experience joy during this holiday season for various reasons.


Major T-Claps to Bartman on his weight loss journey.  I seriously didn’t recognize him when he first rolled-up to the flag and thought we may have had an FNG.  I remember the day he first posted at Big Creek several months ago and it’s awesome to see his level of commitment and how far he’s come.  A great Was-Now story in the making and look forward to seeing him continue down the path.
