Prelude to a Merger

4 HIMs ran a classic Pub run on the classic Pub route.  One modified and ran back and forth in the parking lot of the Teeter.  One did the IPC Week 0 workout.  All perspired.

At the end of the COT, we were joined by the fine folks at Diablo Sammich who stopped by to check out their new territory.

FYI – Diablo will start meeting at the Publix on Hoffman in conjunction with The Pub runners, starting Thursday, September 8th.  Please spread the word, and drop in to see the debut.

6 on a holiday for the usual at the Sandlot.  Burpees, DORA, Core work in cadence, Dips/StepUps… all the usual stuff.  Only made it across the street and only had 1 ten count.  How’d we fill the time?  Read on.  Here’s what I remember…

YHC wasn’t the first one in the parking lot, and struggled to get everything ready to go.  Laced up the sneakers, prepped the speaker, planted the flag, and figured it was about that time.  0530 came and nobody was in a hurry to get started, but we did anyways.  Disclaimer was something like “You probably should have just stayed in bed”.  Turns out, we all wanted to earn our coffee this morning.

The Thang:

Next up would be a round of 3-man DORA, where 1 PAX does exercise and counts reps, 1 PAX runs, and 1 PAX does some kind of hold.  Rotate after the runner comes back each time.  Needless to say it took some time to describe it, so…
