In the soup

AO: Nirvana

When: 07/15/2023

QIC: Dosido

PAX (7): Dosido, Groundhog, Shortcake, Special K, Sprocket, Tank, turkey


In typical Nirvana fashion, slack channel showed only 2 HC, but 7 showed up for what would be a soupy sweat-fest, so let’s get after it!


warm up included a mosey to the MHS flagpole for SSH, weed pickers, IC merkins, hillbillys, and burpees. Good enough, lots to do, let’s get moving!

The Thang:

  1. Merkin mile: destination DT Crapabble graffiti-deck. 50 merkins total at 5 stops along the way.
  2. At the deck, Dora 1,2,3: 100 burpees, 200 jump squats, 300 (Alpha) freddy mercs // the run consisted of the stairs on one side, all the way across the store-fronts, down the other side to tag your partner.
  3. Merkin mile back to the start: PAX to remember and hit the same stops from the first mile or a burpee penalty would apply. Thankfully the group nailed every stop.
  4. Find some NWMS wall for the icing on the cake: partner up, one is performing 5 wall walks while other in low plank then switch. Round two, 3 wall walks while other low plank, followed by 2 wall walks in the final round —the grunting was getting pretty serious at this point.
  5. Mary at the flag for final 6mins. Called on each PAX to lead about a minute each. I believe we did more freddy mercs thanks to Special K, gas pumpers from Tank, jump squats from Turkey, SSH from Shortcake, shoulder taps from Sprocket, and plank jacks from GroundHog. Time was called, all shirts were off – it was a sexy moment! (not really)


Prayers were mentioned for several friends and family – always thankful for this time together, never a regret, these men killed it today and, God willing, we’re all looking forward to doing it again throughout next week and beyond.

Peace out –
