2 PAX for a muggy pre-run


We loosened up with a mosey lap around some parking lot lanes with slides, high knees and buttkickers along the way. After returning to the flag the PAX limbered up with:

  • Weedpickers
  • Little Baby Arm Circles
  • Hammy Stretch
  • Windmills
  • Tempo Mercans
  • Side-to-side Plank Jacks

The Thang:

YHC moseyed the PAX to the center sidewalk where everyone lined up along the curb. Instructions were fairly simple, yet nuanced. PAX would perform a round of 7’s, with Burpees on the near side and Side-to-Side Plank Jacks (practiced previously) on the far side. However, the distance in between would be the same number of parking lot lines as Burpees (i.e. 6, 5, 4, etc). OYO. Mary was performed for the Six.

Lined up again at the curb, YHC decided it was high time our RNGs met Lieutenant Dan… our old friend who introduces PAX to the sensation of missing (or useless) legs. 1:4 ratio of Squats to Lunges from 1:4 to 10:40. Great work here and I could smell all the smoked legs 🙂

A recovery walk to the Nara portico where YHC arranged some tunes and explained the next ‘Thang’. A Dora-Grinder order was given with PAX forming groups of 3. P1 and P2 would be stationed on either end of the running route (Portico to Theater). P3 would run from one side to the other, replacing the partner at the other end and keeping track of completed reps. P2 returns to replace P1 and so on till completion of all reps. Mary was performed for the Six and continued until ti


Prayers for Scrooge and his client for a difficult meeting today. Looking forward to next weekend’s convergence and the Ready-Mix Quad the following weekend!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Once again Hooch was at or above 20 PAX, 6 days in a row! This is a dedicated group and while our numbers are higher than what is considered ‘ideal’, we have already split off and started several other AOs which are also going strong. Knowing you won’t be the only guy crazy enough to meet in a parking lot at 5:30am is great motivation to avoid the fartsack and get stronger. Thank you for showing up for yourselves and the guys next to you!
