No Christmas music. No elaborate 12 Days of Christmas beatdown. Just an old-fashioned beatdown. Keep it simple and challenging.
Short mosey. Typical warmup. SSH, Imperial Walker, Copperhead squats, Weedpicker, etc.
Indian Run snake to the hill behind JCHS. 11’s on the hill. Burpees at the bottom and Bonnie Blairs (alpha) at the top. Stop halfway up hill for 5 diamond merkins. Stop halfway down the hill for 5 hand release merkins.
Indian Run snake back to the flag.
On the line for some sprints. YHC named an exercise. If YHC wins the sprint, everyone does 25 reps. If just one pax beats me, everyone does 10 reps. All Mary exercises. 2 rounds of flutter kicks, 2 rounds of Freddy Mercury, 2 rounds of boxcutters, 2 rounds of American Hammer.
Out of time.
It was quickly evident that several Pax have been holding out. McCraken exploded and looked like a high school track sprinter. Meatball had one lungbuster to save the Pax. Popper, Angus, Ready-Mix, and Ballboy all still have it. Saint 2O had a legit, come from behind win and one clearly had a massive headstart win. But still a great way to push the Pax to give more than they think they have in the tank.
Prayers for Meatball’s 2.0 and YHC’s nieces. Lots of traveling Pax and holiday stress/fun.
If you have not HC’ed to Scrooge about Friday’s eggnog extravaganza, please do it ASAP. Or no eggnog for you! Anyone who wants to bring coffee or coffee with something extra in it, is welcome to do so.
