When I planned my original Cricket Q, I wrote this one out at the same time; so, with no new themed beatdowns ready to go, YHC broke out the remixed Cricket BD. Cinders were requested, but coupons were suitable substitutes. Pre-running was an option as well.


Two pre-runners returned to find the Pax in search of cinders. YHC said there was nothing cinder specific, so a coupon would be acceptable and that could be grabbed after the warm-up. An introduction followed that included a brief disclaimer and notice to modify as necessary. With the legalize covered, we moseyed to the pool parking lot for a warm-up.

Forward and Backward Arm Circles

We started a mosey through the park to check on the Field of Dreams. Two PAX broke off to collect coupons from the pile and rejoin at the flag.

The Thang:

Pax circled up near the flag and did a short rifle carry to the lamp-post by the entrance where they were greeted by the Cricket Scoreboard:

.                 Cinder Cricket                       .
|              20           |
|          Squats       |
|             19            |
|      OH Flutter   |
|            18             |
|           Row          |
|            17             |
|      OH Press      |
|            16             |
| Am. Hammers |
|            15             |
|    Block Webb   |
|            B              |
|         Curls          |

Pax split into two teams and launched into the beatdown. Team A elected to proceed down the scoreboard, while Team B initially followed this strategy before focusing on individual exercises during their second sets. In a close race, team 1 pulled out a narrow victory.

After Cricket completed, YHC called for a loop through the park to get the blood pumping again. Upon return to the cinders we completed a set of 11s:
Skullcrushers <— Rifle Carry —> Curls

YHC then called for an end of the cinder work and a move to cover from the drizzle that refused to quit. We moseyed to the pavilion for 20 (alpha) step-ups, 10 Burpees, and a round of Mary to finish out the BD:
Dying Cockroach
Fire Hydrants
J. Los
Decline Merkins
Gas Pumpers (with a nod to Haha’s Tesla)



Pax circled up and shared announcements:
F3 Christmas Party tonight at Loyal Q, 7:30 pm.
There’s a $10 White Elephant gift exchange for those interested.

Dunkin Coffeteria Convergence off Hwy 9 immediately post-BD.

Starbucks Coffeteria Convergence Thursday post-TNT.

Rubicon will continue normal hours for Thursday’s Avis Q, but check slack for next week and hours at other AOs.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thanks for coming out today. The rain was annoying but it could have been worse.

It was an honor to lead.
