The GRINDer

AO: Grindstone

When: 11/05/2018

PAX: Swiper, Scully, McDuff, Badger, Whiz

QIC: Whiz

The Grindstone has now been open for a month and YHC thought it a good time to christen a namesake routine that embodies the spirit of the AO.

Definitions:

/grind/ verb

  • sharpen, smooth, or produce (something) by crushing or friction.

/grind/ noun

  • hard, dull work.

After consulting the exicon for inspiration, YHC was ready to bring the pain.  5 PAX answered the call this morning to suffer through and take a few steps up the mountain.

Warmup – usual assortment of SSH, windmill, weed pickers

Thang:

Mosey up to the park entrance to start the G.R.I.N.D.  Begin at the first light pole, duck walk to the next and continue until finished.

Rd. 1 – 10 Groiners, 20 Ranger merkins, 30 Imperial walkers, 40 Newton’s cradles, 50 Diamond merkins.

Rd. 2 (head back up to the starting pole) – 50 Gorilla humpers, 40 Reverse LBC, 30 Imperial squat walkers, 20 Never cross dolly, 10 Double merkin burpees

Rd. 3 (GRINDicides) – suicide run to each light pole and back for the entire length of the parking lot performing 10 Bonnie Blairs at each pole along the way for a total of 60.

Mosey back to the flag for 1 MoM – Flutter Kicks

COT:

Prayers for YHC’s long drive and close quarters with my dad and helping him move this week.  Also, prayers of peace and calming for McDuff.
