14 braved one of the chillier mornings of the year today for another tour of the Sedgefield Middle School campus. Hey, at least it wasn’t raining!
- Mosey up to the school and around the back. Over the Sparta wall for COP in the lot, with SSHx20, MCx20, and Peter Parkers x20.
- Mosey around the left side of the track and down to the playground for the Mile of Misery.
- 10 pull ups and 20 dips at the playground.
- Up Elmhurst to Poindexter for 10 burpees.
- Back down Elmhurst and up to the track.
- Over the fence for a hot lap with 5 merkins at each corner of the track.
- Back over the fence and back down to the playground.
- Repeat the same circuit 3 more times, only with different merkins each time. Diamonds, wide arms, and hand release during laps 2, 3, and 4.
- Mary waiting on the 6, and then run one final lap with additional hand release merkins to escort the 6 during their final lap.
- Mosey back to the main lot and down to the bottom of the school entrance hill for a set of 7s up to the main lot. Not to the school.
- Sumo jump squats at the bottom
- Double count jumping lunges at the top
- Finish with a trip up the rest of the hill to the school for 20 dips and 10 derkins.
- Back down to the main lot for COT.
Good showing of mostly Sparta regulars for the year’s coldest morning yet. The wall was a good way to start the day for some; SOME. About 50% refusniks who were immediately DQ’d from the workout. (#lame) Even Tormund with a bum hamstring gutted it out and got over the wall. Without gloves no less. If the beard doesn’t make him look tough enough, he went sans gloves for a 25 degree workout. I assume he forgot them, but he didn’t seem to mind. I for one wanted to get in a good amount of pull ups this morning. It seems like the past couple of weeks of workouts have been lacking. The Mile of Misery hit just about everything. The circuit was a bit WIBish (as Thin Slice noticed), but it sufficiently applied plenty of pain. Thin Slice was open for business this morning, setting the pace during the circuit. Redd Foxx was right on his tail the entire time, after honing his burpee skills for the past 12 months. Fastest burpee-er (is that a word?) this side of the Mississippi. Mr. Bo was not far behind as we finished the 4th round (Strong). Slice led some mary as we waited for the 6, and then passed it back to me. I immediately called for a quick set of Breath Catchers (Smoked Q), before continuing some mary. The Breath Catchers will likely catch on going forward. Thin Slice then made a great site Q call and suggested that we finish the final lap with the 6. As usual, I had way more material than time this morning, so we ended up doing some 7’s on the school entrance hill. The combo of sumos, a steep a$$ hill, and the double count jumping lunges proved to be a true leg smoker, except for Snots who just crushed it from the start. Good combo of mileage and pain this morning.
Shredder announced a new social media multi-level marketing thingy, that received a few responses of skepticism. Redd Foxx gets a gold star for his suggestion of Madoff.com.
Come out to Suffolk Punch on Wednesday the 23rd for the F3 Beer Reveal Party. It’s the Shovel Flag Lager.
Keep Bermuda Boy and his family in your prayers as they are dealing with his sister’s terminal illness.
Thanks to Redd Foxx for the takeout, and thanks for the keys Doobie and Thin Slice. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.
Always an honor.
