Today we celebrated 2 years of the Abyss. When the shovel flag was planted 6/29/20016 by Dark Helmet the Abyss was merely an idea that “if we build it….they will post.” And post the PAX did! Over the past year and half it has been an honor to be the Site Q of this versatile AO and I appreciate all the PAX who have come out and led a workout.
Q got to the AO with seconds to spare due to an emergency bathroom visit at a 24 hr Harris Teeter in route.
Once disclaimers were given and the 5 F3 Principles given (due to FNG) we were off.
Quick mosey around the front half of the AO to allow all stragallers to exit their vehichles (ehem…Wildthing) and then to a warm-up circle.
- Weed Pickers
- Moroccan Night Club
- Slow Low Squat
- Plank (a few Broga moves)
- Stretch with knees to chest
I told the PAX that I wanted to highlight a few of the “features” of the AO during the workout so we started with the Flag pole.
- Bear Crawl around circle in front of school
Mosey to very back hill of the AO for a series of hill exercises
- Lunge walk–Sprint to top
- Broad Jump–Sprint to top
- Basketball shuffle Flip half way
Mosey to the Basketball court for some Suicides
all four goals and back
- Start with 10 Squats
- 2nd Goal–10 Merkins
- 4th Goal–5 Burpees
Mosey into “wet and muddy” field
- Elbow Plank position with Peter Parker’s
- Jack Webs (everyone’s favorites)
Mosey to “the hill”
- Finished strong with 5 sprints up the hill
Mosey to COT.
Everyone pushed themselves and got better for it…includding FNG who was off to the side threatening to Merlot.
Once Namorama was finished we welcomed FNG Oompa Loompa!
Announcements and Prayers
Thanks again for all the PAX who came out today to celebrate this AO. We had 24 there and we have set the goal for 30 next year!
