The rain held off as we got started.  We moseyed down the hill and did our warmup, then back up the hill for the BD.



Sun Gods

Imperial Walkers

Willie Mays Hays

Overhead Claps

Michael Phelps

The Thang:

5 exercises: start with first, then run up and down the “hill”; then first plus second and 2 laps up and down the hill and so on until on 5th round, do all 5 exercises and 5 times up and down the hill.  On lap #6, drop the first exercise, do second thru fifth and drop to 4 times up and down and then so on until just last exercise and once up and down.

the Exercises were:

  1. 10 Merkins
  2. 10 Squats
  3. 10 Tricep Dips
  4. 10 Elbows to Knees crunches
  5. 10 Plank Jacks

at the end, each PAX has done 50 reps of each and a decent amount of running; started to have some drizzling rain during the BD but not enough to interfere

No Mary as this was timed almost exactly right

Acceleration Point:  YHC hates running and doing Merkins, so I made sure to incorporate both in this workout to Embrace the Suck.  Won’t get better at the things that are difficult for us if we don’t try.
