Here we go again, nearly a week later without a backblast.  Thankfully we have Watts Up to keep me straight.  Long but great week on the road, going to stick to the cold hard facts this time.


Warm Up:  SSH, 20 IC

That’s enough, I think Montross has this Painlab group under control, time to run.  Off to First Presbyterian Church we go.  At the front of the church roundabout.

The Thang:

Partner Up:  Each partner runs opposite circles around roundabout.  At each passing stop and do one booyah merkin, counting up to 10.

Rinse and Repeat with Booyah Burpees (can there be such a thing?)   The answer is yes, and they sort of stink just about as bad as they sound.  For time (sure, yes time…  rather for saving my energy in the tank we counted up to 4 and counted back down ignoring the second 4 count (ie, 1, 2,3, 4, 3, 2, 1, again for me))

Down to the steps at The Pad.

Single round of 11’s:  Merkins and squats (up and down stairs)

Up to stop sign at corner near Parkwood (Dixon road?)

Dora 1-2-3

Partner up, Heels to Sky, LBC’s and Flutters (count each leg and no division this time).  Run down and back up hill to a little bus sign.  It was honestly about perfect distance given that I did not think that one through very well.

Back to FPC, bottom of hill that leads up to The Pad.

Partner AMRAP:  Merkins while partner 1 runs to top and back, rinse and repeat.  Rinse and repeat again doing Burpees.

Back to the Schiele with no time to spare.

Gashouse produces a great group of mumble chatter crowds.  JJ and Short Sale solved all of the ACC issues (poor JJ didn’t know what was coming that evening though), Timeframe concerned about his performance showed exceptionally well, Stroganoff stuck to the Rucking and I think Hushpuppy outworked us all.  Always honored to lead, even if the backblast is a ‘little’ late?
