Merkin & BURPEE DANS!!!!!!

We started with Merkins and then switched to Burpees. We lined up across the curb and did 1 Merkin/Burpee and 4 lunges, then another Merkin/Burpee and 4 lunges. It was about 2 – 3 sets per rep.  At the other side we turned around and came back. Only we added a  Merkin/Burpee. So 2 Merkin/Burpees and 4 lunges. then at the other side add another Merkin/Burpee. All the way to 10 Merkin/Burpees. We completed all the Merkins but not the Burpees. Also we did the same format but did LBC and crab walk from one side to the other.

Rain as a deterrent

The forecast called for rain so we didn’t have a huge crowd at the Horse on Sunday.  However, it only drizzled rain and was comfortable for the entire 5 miles.

Breaker Breaker left early and Stroganoff got some EC.  Sargento came in hot and we lowered our standards and waited for him and left to run at 0631 hours.

The Greenway is plenty dark these days.  Fortunately the creek didn’t rise where we would have to run through  water and all the Flotsam and Jetsam that sometimes clogs the path over the small bridges.

Flintstone showed up for Q-Source.  YCH covered “Opportunity” but was called out because it was supposed to be on “Apprenticeship”.  Q-Fail on my part…

Get ready for the November challenge.  You better harden up  and run, even on the days that call for rain.
