The weather report was absolutely miserable, mid-30’s and pouring down raining, so we were all pleasantly surprised that it was rain free for the duration of the 45-minute workout and the morning felt great because of it.
We had a newer guy there I had never met before, Duck Dynasty, so I gave a disclaimer and told everyone to glove up and off we went.
Fast mosey with some Toy Soldiers along the way and some shuffles followed by a quick lap around the track before circling up for a quick CoP.
- Windmills x8
- SSH x25
- Peter Parker x15
- Downward Dog/Honeymooner stretch
- Tempo Merkins x10
- MNC x20
I did this workout last time I Q’d the Abyss and we didn’t quite get through it, I was hopeful that with the colder weather and a faster CoP we would have just enough time and I was right.
1st Routine – Paula’s up & down the hill/road at the back of the school
6 cones placed about 30 paces apart going up the hill each with an “up” exercise and “down” exercise on them. We would move 2 cones forward and 1 cone back until reaching the top. Our method of movement was always via Bear Crawls 2 cones forward and Crawl Bears 1 cone back. Once we reached the top/cone 6 we started over and performed the “down” exercise on the cone, which were the same exercises in reverse order.
- Cone 1 – True Americans/Absolution x 10
- Cone 2 – Donkey Kicks/Diamond Merkins x10
- Cone 3 – Squats x30 /Groiners x10
- Cone 4 – Groiners/Squats x30
- Cone 5 – Diamond Merkins/Donkey Kicks x10
- Cone 6 – Absolution/True Americans
A few of us finished this up, Jedi out in front followed by YHC, Cha Ching, and Wolverine. Most of the rest of the PAX were about to finish up or maybe a cone or 2 back when I told everyone to finish up their exercise and bear crawl back to cone 1 and finish up to keep things moving along.
Last time we did the next routine on the grassy hill, but due to the weather, we kept it on the road for better traction.
2nd Routine – Burpback Mountain
Partner up and split 120 total burpees. 1 PAX NUR’s up the hill all the way to the top and mosey’s back down while his partner is doing as many Burpees as possible then switching etc, until 120 Burpees are accumulated.
Once we finished this we mosey’d back to CoT and had a couple minutes to spare. I called out 20 Flutters IC and Cha Ching followed with 15 Crunchy Frogs. That’s it, circle up.
Yeti is almost here and read your newsletter! Continued prayers for this group of men and the ability to come out every morning together. We also lifted up Prayers for some friends of Jedi’s family whose father committed suicide and Emma, Cornerstones daughter, who hasn’t been feeling well and pray her cancer stays away.
Thanks for the Q Copyright, I can’t wait to come back, I love this AO.
Until next time,
