With temps well in the 60’s and fresh off a Virginia Slim call-out the night prior, YHC was hoping for summer-like numbers and the PAX didn’t disappoint (well, except for Slim). With an FNG in tow and 0530 on the clock, it was time to get rolling.
Mosey up the main drag and circle up at the first parking lot for the following:
Continue mosey toward the back half of the AO and direct low-mosey’rs to lunge-walk across the large parking lot while leading the remaining PAX on a perimeter tour. Gather low-mosey’rs on the turn before easing up at the playground for the main event.
Knowing that we have a true Murph looming for Memorial Day, YHC wanted to introduce a twist on his favorite BD to get a measure of the PAX. This meant the addition of coupons and burpees, simply because they improve everything. A Murph circuit would be the BD du jour, consisting of the following:
20 Decline Merkins
25 Overhead Press (with coupon)
30 Squats (with coupon)
Run perimeter of baseball field, stopping at the flag for 10 Burpees
Rinse/repeat the above, subtracting 1 Burpee for each round
YHC believes that he and Rusty got through 5 rounds before time was up, despite getting passed by Bieber and Bronco. Great work and plenty of mumble-chatter all around. Squeegee serves as a good barometer of the BD – if I can’t hear him from 10 yards away, it’s time to turn up the volume (unless he’s just way ahead of me, which is happening a lot lately).
With 5 minutes to go, Q directs PAX to hoist the coupon and cusack back toward the flag. Deposit coupons in the ditch for another day, and get in a short round of Mary before time was called.
Continued prayers for Zook as he undergoes treatment.
Beer Mile on the books for May 17 at 1800 sharp at The Wreck.
F3Alpha will be rolling out a group calendar to get all PAX on the same page with regional events. Stay tuned for details.
