The Hare and the Tortoises

AO: Academy

When: 05/16/2023

QIC: Mayhem

PAX (03): lumbergh, No-See-Um


The Gloom was heavy this morning, as the heat & humidity have returned to North Georgia.  While numbers were low this week, we never felt lonely, as the sweat angels were ever present.


Run to the Alpharetta Green.

The Thang:

  1. Four Corners – 10 Makhtar N’Diayes, 20 Burpees, 30 FlutterKick, 40 Dips.  Mosey to the Parking Deck
  2. Dealer’s Choice Escalator – Starting at the base of the parking deck, completed 5 Squat Jumps.  Then mosey’d to the next corner of the deck for the 5 squats, plus 10 more reps of another Pax’s choice.  Continued to escalate by increments of 5 until we reached the top of the deck (I believe the last set ended 35 Rosalitas plus all the previous exercises).   Burpees coming back down then back to the track for the main event
  3. The Hare & the Tortoises – Since the Tortoise & the Hares was such a big hit a few weeks ago, I decided bring it back, but flip it.  This time, 1 PAX would run a lap around the track, while the two Tortoises performed slow moving exercises.  The “Turtle” would rifle carry a cinder, while the 2nd Pax did Lt. Dans.  On the second lap, we switched the Lt Dans for Bear Crawl.  The verdict? Brutal.
  4. The Dreaded Weighted Jump Rope returns!!! – with a few minutes left, we gathered near the flag for a quick jump rope session.  One Pax would jump rope while the other two Air Chaired or Planked.  As soon as they messed up, the rope would pass to the next PAX.  Who knew No-See-Um was a jump-roping savant!?!


Prayer’s for healing and clarity for Turbine’s mom.  Also for our kids that are transitioning to middle school.
