It was a wonderful Wednesday in the Gloom with my F3 brothers that showed up to participate in one of the most memorable workouts to take place at Martha Rivers park that day.

We started at 0529 since Whoopee had to leave by 0600 and we wanted him to get a workout in #F3250 rules….

Stroganoff posted today and that was awesome to have him back in the Gloom what has been a prolonged case of injuries and sandy V.

Disclaimer/Warm up/Mosey to front of the park for 10 burpees.

Mosey to the turd shack for 10 burpees and 20 Merkins.

Mosey to the edge of the woods for 10 burpees, 20 merkins, 30 LBC’s.  It was at this point that Watts Up noticed the clouds had formed into amazing light show in the dark.  This was coined the Aurora Gastonialis and you didn’t have to be in Iceland or Norway to see them.

We then moseyed into the heart of the dark woods along the trail for 10 burpees, 20 merkins, 30 LBC’s, and 40 squats.  Our night vision was better once we were in there a few minutes but it was spooky dark when we got there.  Watts Up was on his game and guessed the 40 squats were going to be a thing.  We then did 30 flutters, 20 CDD’s, and maybe 10 WW1’s or something.

Next we moseyed back to the turd shack and grabbed the wall for wall sits, wall sits with air presses, wall sits with air presses and marching, then derkins with feet on the wall, then donkey kicks.

We moseyed to the big parking lot and bear crawled the length of a traffic island and then took a lap and repeated that 4x.

We then did some mary with lots of gut exercises.  We then lunge walked a bit, then lunge walked with chinooks, then kareoked left and right, followed by a long run back to the AO where we finished maybe a minute late.

There was some excellent mumblechatter today, with the best being a reflection of how much fun Linus’s Q was on Monday at the sandlot.  Somebody said, “I wonder if he know’s how funny he is?”   Then someone else described him as the “Aunt you haven’t seen in five years who has been heavy on the XANAX the whole time”.

Anyway it was a great day to be in THE GLOOM.
