9 men took on Bandit and this is what we done dids:
Appetizer: Run the pre-described loop around the lake…just a little faster than normal…so that with the extra, extra time we can hit the basketball court at the entrance of the park for 2-4-8-4-2 burpee-squat couplet…and return home with 10 seconds to spare. #Qmaster
Up East to Cumberland for SSHs
Down Cumberland to back entrance of the park, with 3 separate stops for squats, mountain climbers and flutters, respectively
Lurker Circuit: Run to rails by “that building in the parking lot” for supine 20 pull-ups, run up Lurker, with x10 chest-to-ground-shoulder-tap merkins at each speedbump and at the top, running backwards between the speedbumps (#longerthanyouthink), down Lurker, x10 chest-to-ground-shoulder-tap merkins at each speedbump again, back to bars again for 20 supine pull-ups
Mary in parking lot while we wait for six
COP Leg Work: squats, sumo jump squats, jumping lunges, Baryshnikovs
AYG to top of the Lurker
Megatool Circuit: Down to Princeton, 10 burpees, backwards run up Megatool (#aslongasyouthink), 10 burpees
Mary while we wait for six
Back down Lurker to rails…x20 IC(!) supine pull-ups…run down Stairway to Heaven and run back up to supine bars…x20 IC(!) supine pull-ups
Down stairs and head back home
Finish up with 2-4-8-4-2 burpee-squat couplet (#symmetry) at stop sign by baseball fields
Thanks, Sky Q — and the Entire Cyborg Design Team! Holy rolled ankle, Batman! YHC hit a shadowed pot hole freakin’ dead on within the first 3 minutes of the EC run. Somehow I did not break it or sprain it nor go down but was very thankful to finish the EC run and the workout itself without appearing too worse for wear. We’ll see how it feels later today but so far so good. #blessed
Sheep Is Dismayed. Always check the Twittersphere for who’s on Q. Sheep did not and was, shall we say, less than enthused about chasing YHC and possibly doing more than what he had originally anticipated. He survived and thrived though and appeared satisfied at the end. #Hard=Good
Dover Holds It Together. Dover was doing great during the EC run, but had to opt out of the SSHs at the first stop of the Main Course menu due to some acute gastrointestinal issue. (Was it something on the Showmar’s menu board?) Thankfully for all of us, no merlot was spilled and, stud that he is, Dover gutted out (see what I did there?) the rest of the workout and finished strong.
I Can’t Feel My Legs! Thought that the normally totally lame, soooooo easy Lurker needed a little more oomph this morning so how about a series of leg exercises designed to initiate fatigue/muscle failure followed by an AYG up a long hill. #keeper Thin Slice crushed the AYG, by the way. #firewood
Do Not Listen to Slice! During the last round of supines, Sheep suggested (to Nautique I believe) to stick his tongue on the rails to see what would happen. Slice took it to another highly inappropriate, NYC level. #dirty Thankfully, no one took either suggestion to task, but I may have to wash my brain out with soap (#donotattempt #disclaimer) to clean it from the filthiness that Slice brought to the table.
Thanks to Paula for the invite and for the rest of the crew for coming out today. The Gloom was fantastic.
