The Thang:

Mosey from ice cream shack to parking lot of Martha Rivers then did a little Merkin chase for approx 2/3 mile in the counter clockwise direction according to Linus-thankfully we had a professional English teacher to correct us (kudos Godfather) and teach us the difference in clockwise and counter clockwise. Wish I brought a notebook this morning because I am not sure I have it straight yet.

At this point we attacked the parking lot with a descending Merkin or Squat ladder (dealer’s choice)-20 seemed to be a good number the night before but we started with 10-I am learning that breathing really is optional when being a Q so next time we will go with 20…

I needed some music relief at this point, so we then broke into several verses of Johnny Cash music as we did a ring of fire with 25 squats per person whiile everyone performed ring of fire in the plank position-personally I thought Stroganoff’s voice was soothing-he definitely missed his calling.

To continue with the music theme, we then started our “Welcome to the Jungle” (gym) part of the thang and did a short mosey into the playground for a Triple Check (really wanted to call it a three way but would have a hard time explaining that to my wife) with teams of three doing (1) peoples chair, (2) plank, and (3) swinging on the jungle gym ladder for 2 rounds. I believe I heard the jungle gym ladder scream as the Godfather approached but thankfully we left the jungle gym ladder intact and no worse for the wear.

It was approaching closing time so we moseyd back to the ice cream shack for a few burpees then a COT and quick picture to document our inaugural workout at Martha Rivers.

Although there were no tackling dummies, I really enjoyed this AO and see a lot of potential.

Join us next week when Dr. Feelgood brings the pain at his VQ.
