So as YHC rode up from Lake Wylie to the Yank AO things went from bright and sunny to very foggy, misty and frankly a little dark about the time he hit Southpoint Road. Driving on up it looked – and felt like another world from where I had left. I fully expected to hear Rod Serling’s voice announcing that we had all gone interdimensional. Would we see Bigfoot maybe? An alien spacecraft? Hitler? Stalin? Santa Clause maybe? Oh well, too late to turn back now! the rest went something like this:
COP on the park pad:
SSH X 20
2 alligator burpees OYO
IW X 20
4 alligator burpees OYO
Copperhead squats X 20
6 alligator burpees
Mountain Climbers X 20
8 alligator burpees
LBCs X 20
10 alligator burpees
Mosey up to the field of dreams fro some BLIMPS!
Partner up, P1 runs the length of the field and back, P2 does the exercise until P1 returns. Flapjack!
Lunges (jump variety)
After we get through this, mosey up to the corner of Knowledge.
Three sets: 10 X 15 X 20
Take a quick 10 counts, then do the following:
Broad jump down to the center stairs. frog hop to the end.
Mosey back. Train time, 5 burpees
Back to the field of dreams for a crowd fave, Bear Crawl slalom!
BCS to the end.
at the end:
SSH X 20
Morrocan nightclubs X 20
Mosey to the center of the field, 20 CCDs
Mosey to the end of the field: 20 merkins
Another train set of burpees.
Mosey over to hearbreak hill where I was CERTAIN we would encounter Bear Bryant in the zone!
Mountain climbers X 5 (bottom)
LBCTs X 5 (top)
Bear may not have shown up but we did this to do one thing – get tougher in the 4th quarter!
Finish up with a round of pax led Mary for 5 minutes.
Mosey up to The Yank and do the pledge.
It was humid, very soupy and very difficult conditions. Looked and felt like the Twilight Zone. No Bigfoot. No aliens, no dictators or Santa Clause. Just a sweaty ball of man and one young FNG. Welcome Thorpe! Named by YHC for his muti sport acumen. Football, soccer, baseball and basketball. You sir, are the greatest athlete in the park today! look up Jim Thorpe and you’ll see why.
Honor and pleasure to lead this group. Need to put together a clown car for Revolution soon.
