We did neither of those things this morning at The Ricky Bobby, but HIM’s Orangeman and Tesla get some credit for showing up with multiple bee stings from a run through Rocky Branch park yesterday. Gator, Slim Shady, and late-arriving J2C rounded out the six of us in the Gloom.
Started at 0530 with a brief disclaimer and warmup of SSH, Hillbilly walkers, gravel pickers, Nolan Ryans (all 10xIC), and 5 burpees OYO. Got a quick count off, then moseyed to the back parking lot, but first stopped at the wall facing the softball field. Half of us took a seat on the wall while the others did hip slappers (10xIC), then we switched. Continued to mosey around to the edge of the parking lot near the playground.
One HIM called an exercise. The HIM to his left ran to the other side of the parking lot and back while PAX do the exercise AMRAP. We started with hand release merkins and did a variety of other stuff. After 2 full rounds, moved to the other side of the lot (bear crawl halfway, high knees the rest) for “rinse and repeat.” Good mumblechatter during this, including speculation about why Tom Brady’s wife doesn’t like him playing football (huh?), and Gator even spotted a shooting star while doing flutter kicks (or Freddy Mercurys or LBC’s). After 2 more rounds, carioca-ed back to the playground side and changed it up a bit. Instead of a there-and-back run, we circled up. Bear crawl around the circle marked the time for each exercise. Got in 3 rounds of this, then moseyed back to the wall facing the softball field for alternating hip slappers (10xIC) and wall sits. Moseyed back to the flag for a rapid-fire round of Mary during the final 2 minutes.
