PAX: Devito, Special K, Lumberg, Zima, Fanny Pack, Lefty, Pinky, Krueger, False Start, Cookie, Trebek, Half Dog, El Matador
Viruses, Stocks, and nothing but rain in the forecast had YHC a little down Monday. The chatter on slack lately confirmed I’m not the only one. With all that’s going on, I thought we could lift some spirits this morning by jamming out to some Irish Rock for a little Pre-St. Patrick’s celebration.

Thang I: Board O’ Pain
After the warm up, we moseyed down to the FOD for a classic beatdown burner: the Board of Pain (Irish Style). Once YHC fired up the tunes started, it was time to go:
Smurf Jacks x 50
Hand-release Merkins x 50
American Hammers x 50 (Alpha)
McBurpees x 50
Reverse Crunches x 50
O‘Lunges x 50
Carolina Dry Docks x 50
Kilkenny Kicks (aka Flutter kicks) x 50 (Alpha)
Good job by all. And as I noted to a few of the guys, I did my level best to find songs with out expletives, but failed miserably. Apologies if anyone was offended; the Irish will say what they want to say.
Thang II: Bear Leaf Clover
Once everyone had completed their sets, we convened at home plate for some additional punishment. We started by bear crawling to first base, then completed 5 squats. Back to the bear crawl to 2nd base, then 10 Squats. And so on until we got home and completed 20 Squats. El Matador must have thought we were on a Strava segment, because he left us in the dust (though Devito was not far behind).
After a quick 10 count, we Mosey’d back to the flag for a few rounds of Mary.
-Great job by all getting that last dry beatdown in before the rain hits.
-Convergence coming up in early May. Check slack for more details as we get closer.
-Forgot to mention this, but for a truly unique experience this upcoming Easter weekend, Cross Ruck will be on 4/10 (Good Friday) from 4:30-6:30am at Alpharetta First United Methodist in Downtown Alpharetta.
