Day: March 23, 2021

Midoriyama Domo 23-Mar-21

I got some flack about taking a Q so I had to step up and lead.  Here’s how it went

Warmup: 15 SSH IC, 10 Don Quixote IC, 5 Walk out planks OYO


Thang:  Mosey to far corner of fields for work.  Thanks to those that passed the coupons while moving. There were stations put out.  Each pax would be at a set station while one person would run.  When they got back, we would rotate.  After Short Sale and Taterhole did the first two laps, it was a quick Omaha to just down and back.  Mumble chatter started to get some pepper here as the pax turned on themselves.  Stations were Shoulder Taps, Run Up Hill and back, Burpees, Kettlebell Swings/Press, Lunges, Squats, Reverse Crunch, Jump Rope/SSH Merkins, Moroccan Night Clubs and the Run.  After this, we lined up into two lines and that was a lot of fun. After that fiasco (yes, just lining up), we did bear crawl slalom where I got called Tesla (when used in a derogatory manner).  After a couple of rounds we did relay suicides and Merkins “last man standing edition.”  Time is up so we mosey back.  Slaw helped by picking up the six on both to and fro.  Pledge, COT and Name-0-Rama.

Back @ The Storm

The Mortimer 100 is finally in the books for 2021 and training is over so back to The Storm on Tuesdays ilo the Half-Pipe training. I will say putting in the training definitely pays off. This year YHC was able to shave some time off pace on the first two runs. Both were 7 mile runs, not the hills that other team members had, but did have some challenge. First the first run, was 9;17 per mile, 6 secs faster than last year with an extra 1.5 miles and a couple hills. The second run is the same as YHC ran last year and was 8:37 per mile, 8 secs faster than last year. Legs hurt Sunday and Monday, so I knew not to attempt much running this morning, although EC was performed putting in around 2 miles.

Its 5:30 am and we have a several PAX ready to get working!

Wet Nutz Out & No Weinke

Wet Nutz Originally had the Q but could not make it. With it being the Thursday before Relay weekend, and a bad storm earlier in the day,  I knew it would be a small crowd, so I just went in with no weinke. 4 of us showed and we all rotated as Q. Great job by all present. I would list the exercises we did but I dont really remember it. We freestyled it. Show to know.

Field Trip at the Bulldog

Nearly perfect morning weather wise.  52ish degrees and dry.  Very nice.

HIMs started to gather around 5:15 or so.  5 was the total attendance for this Tuesday morning.  After a few brief hellos and good mornings it was time to get what we came for.
