PAX (4): Nacho Libre, Lumbergh, FNG (Peyton)


YHC and Viking were just reminiscing on Saturday about the time Nacho Q’d at the Gladiator.  It was my 2nd post ever and Nacho put me in the dust.   So when he put out the call for a guest Q at the Norseman, I was excited to jump on it and see what I could dish out.

Nacho was kind enough to come out for a pre-run so I could get the lay of the land- specifically, the hill that Ha-ha warned me about.  Lumbergh joined for a nice party of 3.  As we returned to the flag, an FNG was pulling in to bring us to 4 for the day.

Gave the full disclaimer, and then we were off.


Stop off near the baseball fields for

  • SSH x 20
  • Weedpicker x 15
  • Toy soldier x 12

The Thang:

Merkin Mile:

20 regular, at warmup site

Go .2 miles, 20 merkins offset one side

.2 miles, 20 diamond merkins

.2 miles, 20 offset opposite side

To the bottom of the hill, 20 wide-arm merkins to finish off a Mucho Chesto.

Part 2:

Partner up- one partner will run up the hill to the second first mailbox (FNG Peyton and I needed an audible after round 1), while the other performs AMRAP of the designated exercise.  Flapjack and repeato, then switch exercises.  We had time for burpees and American Hammers, then one round of squats each.  A mile back to the flag, with a twisted surprise of 15 star jumps, inspired by the master of the Twisted Surprise, back where we warmed up.

At the flag, time for some Mary.  Dying cockroach, boxcutter, and buzzsaw.  Recover.


Name-o-rama: welcome FNG Peyton (Patriots fan).  Peyton did an awesome job today!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

A privilege to come to another AO and work out with some HIM.  Thanks to Nacho for the opportunity!
