I didn’t write this BD. I didn’t name this BD. IPC is stupid. But first, an observation and a confession.

Confession: As much as I hated that, I will admit that I was responsible for a BD earlier this year that involved running up and down a hill for 35 minutes. Pre-blast: my birthday is 2/27.

Observation: there were a whole lot of Merkins involved in that BDE workout. This is a weird culture, man.


Extended warmup with SSH, walking Toy Soldiers, walking quad stretch, walking flamingo stretch, high skips, and a 50-m build.

The Thang:

The Thang
  • The workout begins when the timer starts
    • 400-meter lap
    • 5 BDE burpees
      • burpee, alpha-count bonnie blair, squat jump
    • 400-meter lap
    • 5 BDE merkins (AKA – hand-release prisoner merkins)
      • Hand release merkin to Peter Parker to the right elbow to hand release merkin to Peter Parker to the left elbow to hand release merkin
  • Repeat until time is called.
  • Total number of meters rounded down to the closest 100 when time is called
    • For example, if time is called and you are between 880 and 890 meters, your score is 800 meters
    • (This was the example that ol’ Speed over Form gave us. Our average distance was around 4 miles. Hate to break it to you Speed over Form guy…you’re not fast.)

Naked-Man Moleskin:

I love this stupid little challenge. I mean, I hate it. And it’s stupid. But there’s no group of dudes that I’d rather do stupid, hateful challenges with.

See you Thursday,

Scratch-Off, out!
