YHC was informed on Wed. Couger would make a rare morning appearance.  Additionally Cougar would be bringing a FNG, who was going to be getting married at the courthouse later today.  (Cougar is the best man)  To pay homage to this event, YHC prepared today’s weinke with a marriage theme.

Alas, no FNG and no Cougar..

Disappointed? Yes

Change the Plan?  No

11 PAX where gathered around YHC by 0530.

Its go time…

We knock out The Pledge of Allegiance.


  • 21 SSH IC  (Toward the end of this set, JJ decided it was finally go time for him, making the total 13)
  • 2 Burpees
  • 12 Merkins IC
  • 2 Burpees
  • 2 Burpees
  • 2 Burpees
  • Mosey to the Parking Deck a longish way.

Main Event:

Partner up…

The couples were:

BOS / EZ Rider
Purple Haze / Watts Up
Def Leppard / Sister Act
Flintstone / Slaw
Folgers / Round Up
Broke / Dirt

As you can see, JJ was the 3rd wheel.  He made the best of it by making threesomes with all the couples as the time progressed.

Level 1

One thing about marriage is you do lots of activities together with your partner…

Let’s do 11’s  with Hand Release Merkins on Level 1 and Squats on Level 2.  Take the stairs to get to Level 2, but run the ramp back to Level 1.  Partner 1 and Partner 2 do this together at the same time, at the same pace.

Meander to Level 2.

Sometimes a partner doesn’t feel well, is hurt, etc. and the other partner has to do all the work…

Let’s do 11’s again.  This time with Burpees on Level 2 and Burpees on Level 3.  Again, take the stairs up and the ramp down.  This time one partner works while the other planks…

  • P1 – 10/1 Burpees, P2 High Plank
  • P2 – 9/2 Burpees, P1 High Plank
  • P1 – 8/3 Burpees, P2 Low Plank
  • P2 – 7/4 Burpees, P1 Low Plank
  • P1 – 6/5 Burpees, P2 High Plank
  • P2 – 5/6 Burpees, P1 High Plank
  • P1 – 4/7 Burpees, P2 Low Plank
  • P2 – 3/8 Burpees, P1 Low Plank
  • P1 – 2/9 Burpees, P2 High Plank
  • P2 – 1/10 Burpees, P1 High Plank

Meander to Level 3

In a marriage, you work together to accomplish goals…

Time for some Dora 1,2,3  P1 does the work, P2 runs to Level 4 via stairs and back via ramp.  Then flapjack.

  • 100 CDDs
  • 200 Calf Raises
  • 300 Dying Cockroaches

Mosey back to the flag, with enough time left to get 5 more burpees in for the train…



  • Extinction Run tomorrow (Saturday, 13-Feb) @ Primal – Belmont 0900.  Weather is supposed to be perfect.
  • Strides of March CSAUP  06-Mar


Prayer Requests were noted and lifted as YHC took us out.


Genesis 2:24
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Ecclesiastes 9:9
Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
