7 answered the call to move the rock at Old School, our newest AO, this morning. 2 started a little early with 3.5 miles of EC. Def Leppard rolled in last dressed in his outside snuggie gear. This is how it went from there.

The Warmup:

SSH x 5 ic

Moroccan nightclubs

Arm Circles forward and backward

Merkins x 5 ic

LBCs x 10 ic

The Thang:

This was easily explained and understood by most everyone but sleepy who struck a nerve early. I even had it all written down on a piece of paper for everyone to see. I set a timer to go off every minute. We would start doing an exercise and when the timer went of we’d do 3 burpees EMOM. Then go back to doing our exercise until completing the number given. You might remember something like this from the iron pax challenge. There were 7 exercises and we were to do 100 reps of each. After we completed an exercise we would run a lap. Remember every time you hear the beep do three burpees. It looked like this.

100 SSH

run a lap

100 hand release merkins

run a lap

100 Bonnie Blairs-count each leg

run a lap

100 Dying Cochroaches-count 1 side

run a lap

100 CDDs

run a lap

100 squats

run a lap

100 Mtn Climbers-count one leg

run a lap

Now how fast you did this determined how many burpees you did. Of course Dr Seuss chewed this one up and spit it out setting a blistering pace. Sleepy made a few more comments that struck a nerve again and due to some frustrations at work I may have snapped and said something really nasty. I apologized several times to him and the group but to fully repent he made me buy his breakfast. All and all the timer made it to set 47. We figured if it went off at least once while you were running and you ran 7 laps then you would have down 40 sets of 3 burpees. That’s 120, so that you don’t have to get out your calculator. You’re welcome. We were close enough so I called time. A few went and ran another tenth through the parking lot to round out to 2 miles.


Announcements-not much going on after the PT test today, one more week of collecting this months service project items, individual tissues and hand wipes, give those to Boke, Sargento and YHC.

This was a good one and everyone was pushing hard this morning. It got real when we hit those HR merkins. It was good to see Watts up this morning. Blart said he was meeting us for breakfast but didn’t show. Judging by the 30 yard walking fart he passed when he got out of the truck this morning I’d say I now why. Thanks again to everyone that joined me this morning. Good group of guys.
