Cool morning in the gloom of Mount Holly and it was looking like a light crowd when suddenly three EC runners appeared to round out to an even 10 Pax.
15 in cadence SSH and a couple of leg stretches, let’s pledge then mosey.
We ran down the street to the parking lot behind the Presbyterian church where I had marked in sidewalk chalk the exercises to be performed. This is called the Nolan Richardson who was a basketball coach at the University of Arkansas whose team won the 1994 NCAA Basketball Championship. It goes like this: Partner 1 will perform each exercise denoted below as Partner 2 backpedals (or Nurs) 50 yards, performs a ” Bobby Hurley” & jogs back to continue the exercise from the count accumulated by Partner 1. This will continue until the repetition count stated below is met.
1. Burpees (150).
2. Squats (300).
3. Big Boy Sit-Ups (150).
4. Little Baby Arm Circles (300).
5. Merkins (150).
6. Imperial Walkers (300).
I forgot to tell them about the Bobby Hurley part and I chose poorly on the location for the back pedals due to a speed bump and a drain but it will be better next time. My partner was Gold Digger. I like to pick someone who I can help by picking up a majority of the reps. I was glad to help him out. One problem we had was when Dr. Seuss had to leave to get to work, his partner moved over with us and proceeded to trash talk mostly directed at me. (No, it wasn’t Freight this time, it was SA). Time was getting close and we were very close to everyone completing the routine so we moseyed back up the hill to the flag.
