So it had been awhile since YHC had led a Yank workout, duck season, convergences, and just other pax stepping up! That is all good! So with that being the case as the gathering crowd grew restless in the chill of 34 degrees, low humidity and actual sunshine (perfect weather) as opposed to biblical floods, chill and wind of the past week it was easy to go back to basics today at The Yank and some Four Corners.
20X mix of SSH, squats, IWs and Mtn Climbers.
Mosey off to the first corner:
Rail squats (Trumpers), merkins, LBCs X 10, 15, 20
On to the third corner (the corner of knowledge), did not stop at corner 2.
step ups, Dips, dirkins, 10X15X20
Burpee broad jumps : 10X
Frog hops: 10X
Do this to halfway across the middle school front yard.
Repeat going back.
Mosey down to the 4th corner:
Jump squats, inclined merkins, SSH X 10, 15, 20
Mosey up to the Field of Dreams for some fun, fun, fun!
Bear Crawl IM X 2 each, one agility run.
SSH X 10, merkins X 10 all 2X
Go back the same way we came. Bear crawls and agility runs.
Triple nickel time.
Note: We started on Heatbreak Hill but it was WAY too muddy and slick. We could have torn the place up and decided against that so we went back up to the Field of Dreams and ran it for the nickel.
Lower end: WWI situps.
Upper End: Hand release merkins
By now we were done. Good work by all pax, get catch a pledge at The Yank.
Was a great day to be out here, and everybody got better. Did recognize Dirt for his outstanding VQ at Goat Island under very tough conditions Thursday. VQs are never easy and that one was very complicated given the very bad conditions we had to deal with. He did great! Look forward to more Qs with our brother very soon!
We probably will be moving the site for the December 1 workout. The Girls on the Run 5k is right at The Yank so it looks like on the 1st we will be over in the parking lot across from Glenway Pub it appears that moring. Will let you know as those plans solidify.
Always a pleasure to lead this group! Orangeman up next. I hear he is getting meaner as his beard grows so I would be VERY AFRAID!
