North Posh BackBlast – 03/02 – LePew Q

Abacus has made famous the quote: “you only get wet once!”

Today we got wet at North Posh, but I believe it was equal parts sweat and rain. It was 48 degrees and the rain started as soon as 0530 came upon us. 16 Men in the gloom – pitch blackness, hard rain, and an eagerness to get after it.


  • Viking
  • Meter Maid
  • Holy Roller (R)
  • Brown Water
  • Storm Trooper
  • Cochran
  • Pelican
  • Jolly Rancher
  • Dauber
  • Backflop
  • Amelia
  • Catfish
  • Airplane
  • Potter
  • Abacus
  • LePew (Q)

After the standard F3 disclosure under the Silo’s Pavilion the men were briefed on what the workout would be: a 45 minute Indig Run in one line with intermittent PT. Any PAX member that needed a break would call for it and PT would provide rest: there would be no man left behind.

First Song: Beck’s “WOW”

  • We got off to a good start and moseyed down the hill. Although a few PAX got way out in front after the sprint we were able to quickly find our pace. 1/2 mile down the hill 1st PT Session: Nuclears 5 count down to 1, 10 merkins, followed by 5 BOYOs.
  • “Turn around Boys! Back up the Hill!”

Second Song: Allman Brothers “Blue Sky”

  • Heading up the hill about 3/4 of the way up our first PT break was requested: 10 merkins and 5 BOYOs. Then we carried on.
  • At the top, PT: 15 squats and five BOYOs. One mile run
  • Back down the hill!

Song Three: Phish “2001”

  • About 1.4 miles down once we got to the bottom of the hill
  • Pt was 10 Merkins, Nuclears from a 5 count down, 5 BOYOs
  • Back up the hill

Song 4: Dave Matthews Band “Rhyme and Reason”

  • PT halfway up the hill: 15 squat jumps, 5 boyos, 10 count
  • At the top of the hill, about 1.8 miles run
  • 10 Merkins, 10 squats, 5 BOYOs, back down the hill

Song 5: Coldplay “Paradise”

  • At the bottom of the hill the last time we were at about 2.4 miles and did another 10 squats, another round of nuclears, and 5 BOYOs.
  • When we turned around song number 6 started

Song 6: Phish (again) “Chalkdust Torture

  • On the way up the hill the last time I thought we were going to make it without PT, but Holy Roller had a shoelace malfunction and we stopped:
    • 10 squats and 5 BOYOS
  • We moseyed a bit more and did 5 more BOYOs to cap our last climb then moved back to the pavilion.

Song 7: Led Zeppelin “Bron-yr-Aur Stomp”

  • Mary under the pavilion for all of us except Backflop who got out in the rain and soaked up every drop he could
    • 50 flutter kicks in cadence
    • 1 minute plank
    • 50 flutter kicks in Cadence

COT and break.

It was awesome seeing the guys pull each other through a 3 mile-ish run in the rain. No one let the weather win this morning and we all got better for getting out in it. 16 men started and finished together.
