20-20 Challenge Part Deux

PAX (4): Callahan, Pumba, Nacho Libre, Ha-ha


On New Years Day 24 HIM took on the 20-20 Challenge at The Widowmaker. 20 trips up Widowmaker hill and 20 reps of 20 exercises at the bottom after each trip with the added bonus of paying a toll of 10 merkins each time you hit the manhole cover (up and down). The gazelles made about 14 or 15 trips up and down. No one finished. So, let’s try it again with 15 less minutes and a lot less hill!


Mosey to the top of “pavilion” hill and circle for:

  • SSH
  • Weed Pickers
  • Imperial Walkers

Time to get to work!

20-20 Challenge Part Deux

Just Deux it!

20 runs up the hill stopping at the first light pole to pay toll, 10 merkins, both on the way up and on the way down.

20 exercises of 20 reps at the bottom, one after each trip up the hill and back. The goal is to make it through a round trip to the top, 20 reps at the bottom then round trip to the top again and 20 reps of the next exercise. If we complete all 20 trips and pay toll going and coming that would be 440 merkins plus the 10 on the initial ascent to warm up and 10 on the descent to start for 460. Yeah, that was the plan.

Accompanying us this morning was a playlist with the top 11 songs of the 201x decade. Mmmm. Who do they ask?
