Run down the parking lot and circle up for some Weed Pickers, SSH, world’s greatest stretch, mountain climbers and baby arm circles. Maybe not at this exact order.
String of pearls format.
Thang 1: run to the field for a mix of sprints and mosey. Imagine the short ends are 1 segment each and the long ends are 2 segments each. Sprint 1 segment, mosey 3. Sprint 1, mosey 2. Sprint 1, mosey 1. Sprint 2 segments.
The imagining part was crucial cause the field was too dark to actually see where is the half point of the long end.
Speedo called it Fartlek (speed play in Swedish), which I guess is a better name than that-thing-Flo-does-a-lot.
Thang 2: mosey to the circle. YHC said we are at the 12 o’clock position. Bear Crawl clockwise and do Burpees at the 3,6,9 and 12 positions (3,6,9 and 12 burpees respectively).
After a much needed 10 count, YHC mentioned a song his kids used to like: if I could turn back time, to the good old days…
Standing in the cold and hearing me sing is definitely a cruel punishment, and the pax were very well behaved, so I did not sing passed that line and explained we are, in fact, going to turn back time by Crawl Bearing counter clockwise and doing 12,9,6 and 3 burpees.
Now I know what you are thinking. Some plans look better on paper than in real life. I assure you this isn’t the case. Not only do I use excel, but even as I was contemplating this idea I didn’t like it. At all. However, the concept was too goodbad stupid to not do it. So we did.
When we were done Speedo said we feel refreshed as if we did nothing at all.
Thang 3: 4 corners. 25 American hammers, 25 flatter kicks, 25 moment humpers and 25 lbcs. Followed by a quick discussion if it’s still 4 corners if we don’t close the rectangle by going back to the starting point or not.
Thang 4: brought to you by the letter D. Mosey to the pavilions. 20 each: Derkins, Dips, Dirty Handshakes and Dollies. Duck Walk to the pavilion on the other side of the restrooms and repeat the exercises.
Thang 5: 11s cut short. Starting with 10 Mike Tysons on the sidewalk and 1 BBSU on the other sidewalk. YHC called time before we could finish. Mosey back to the flag.
Mount kili challenge. Job opportunity for Speedo. Zohan’s M starting a new job next week.
I love this organization. I love the challenge to do better, to be better. I love the fellowship. I deeply appreciate everyone this group.
