Mosey with coupons down the front hill towards Shelbyville Rd, SSH, Grass grabbers, 10 merkins, downward dog, calf and runner stretch for each leg, Kendra Newmans, and Michael Phelps.
The Thang :
Thanks to Nino (for allowing me to borrow his lights and cones) I was able to light up the side of the hill like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree. That is to say, it was still so dark you couldn’t tell who was 10 feet away from you, but you could see the lines to cross in the workout as we progressed from one stage to another. The first time through we started with 5 reps of each exercise, the second time up the hill we increased to 10 reps, third time up 15, then 20…
- Stage 1 – Manmakers and Coupon Curls
- Stage 2 – Tuckees (Burpee with tuck jump at the top)
- Stage 3 – Hurpees (Burpee with hand release merkin at the bottom)
- Stage 4 – Lunges and Squats
Between Stage 1 and Stage 2 we did about 30 yards of murder bunnies. Between Stage 2 and 3 we sprinted (as fast as possible in the near pitch-blackness). Between Stage 3 and 4 were bear crawls. Upon reaching the top of the hill we repeated the exercises on the way back down. So bear crawl from Stage 4 -> 3, 5 Hurpees, sprint to Stage 2, 5 Tuckees, Murder Bunny to Stage 1. Repeat until time.
COR – 17 by picking up two Ruckers, NOR – FNG named Root Canal, based on the fact that Nice and Slow had been talking to him about showing up for about 2 years, but Little Jerry went in for a root canal and convinced him to show up. Announcements included reminders about pandemic and proper procedures for F3 to ensure best practices for remaining healthy. Intentions, especially for Double Down’s mom and sister, who both have cancer. Our Father prayer to close.
Workout Notes: It is harder than I thought to judge murder bunny distance in the pitch black, so we got to do a lot of those. Jewel pointed out that bear-crawling downhill may be even more difficult than going uphill. At one point I am pretty sure I heard Catfish curse, which I am hoping was because of the difficulty of the workout rather than him having to murder bunny around me as he was lapping me on the course. Catfish later demonstrated best form on Tuckees to about 5 people struggling through them. Nice and Slow was the one who headlocked me and he finally made it to one of my Qs (only my 3rd so far). The venue change for Gardeners was refreshing and allowed for extra murder bunnies. As always I am very humbled and grateful to lead a group of such hard-working men.
Peace and Love
