A Cold Murph

AO: The Wreck

When: 03/06/2019


PAX (22): Bieber, Zima, Sprocket, Jackalope, Raider, Virginia Slim, Foley, Squeegee, Deadbeat, Grease Monkey, Rusty, Tubbs, Swamp Donkey, Bear, Divot, Squeak, Doogie, Manchester, Smackdown, Hattrick, Goat, AFLAC


With a cold Q on the calendar and no sight of Virginia Slim for over a week, YHC decided to HC on a low-mosey option coupled with a sheltered beat down to entice the elder statesman out of hibernation and provide PAX with some protection from the brutally cold wind. Those plans almost changed as Grease Monkey planted a seed at T-minus 5, but alas promises were made and GM was a HC to run straight home if Q decided otherwise.


Brisk run up the main road toward the football field for a brief warm-up at the large intersection, consisting of:

  • SSHs
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Weed Pickers

Once completed, Q directed all low-mosey PAX to lunge-walk while the parking lot while he led remaining PAX into the teeth of the wind for a circuitous route toward the main event.

The Thang:

Gather low-mosey’ers and head toward the playground to get out of the wind, directing all PAX to fetch a lifting coupon before circling up.  Once the six was in, YHC provided instructions as follows:  a modified Murph consisting of 10 rounds of the following:

  • 5 Man-Makers (with coupon, of course)
  • 10 Pull-Ups
  • 20 Derkins
  • 30 Squats (with coupon – goblet or sumo-style)

When YHC originally introduced the Murph to the PAX, it presented quite the challenge.  However, these boys have clearly upped their game, which means that Q is more than happy to amp things up to bring out the mumble-chatter.  Today’s version was a good challenge, with only a few PAX finishing and performing some rounds of Step-Ups, Derkins, and Incline Merkins before Q called time.

With 10 minutes to go, return to the flag for some active stretching consisting of the following:

  • Warrior Pose I (both sides)
  • Warrior Pose II (both sides)
  • Downward Dog (shout out to Double-D)
  • Upward-Facing Dog



  • Last day (or so) to purchase a Hogwallow F3 shirt from Mudgear.
  • Swamp Donkey leading Hogwallow on Thursday.
  • Some unspoken Prayers

Naked-Man Moleskin:

As always, it was a pleasure to lead these men as we all strive to be something greater than our individual selves.

AFLAC out.
