I had a nice pre-run with Popper, it has been a while since we’ve been out there together, great weather for it!
Quick mosey around the parking lot, and we saw some PAX still trickle in, noticing that we had not one but two FNGs. Big intro and disclaimer for them, and then into the warmup:
Mosey to the parking lot by what used to be Hurricane’s, and circled up by the dumpster (no diving in). YHC explained that we were going to do a Bear Crawl Ring of Fire Mucho Chesto. It starts with bear crawl in a clockwise direction together until YHC says stop, then start with 10 merkins at 12 and 6 in the circle going clockwise while everyone else holds plank. Then start bear crawling again (in the same direction, duh!) Do this until we did 10 diamonds, 10 werkins, 10 stagger left merkins and 10 stagger right merkins. This was a pretty large circle, so shoulders were smoked by the end of this.
YHC decided to stay close instead of heading over to the church, so we went to the back parking lot and did some DB drills across the parking lot lines to give our arms a (short) rest.
Then we partnered up for some Dora 1-2-3. One partner bear crawled to the light post and ran back while the other partner was doing their share of the exercise. We did 100 merkins, 200 LBCs, and 300 squats. Everyone was very excited about doing more bear crawls, and it was really fun!
Next head to the curb by the old Hurricane’s for two sets of 20 Rocky Balboa’s IC. someone wanted to do Apollo Creed merkins after that, but once it was explained, it was decided to move on to something else instead.
Next head back to the main parking lot and line up. Lunge to the next parking lot line for 5 burpees, and then keep lunging and burpee-ing until you reached the median. Head to the flag, and time’s up!
Prayers for the Stephens family and others who need prayers. Thanks for all the good things we are given by God, pray that we deserve them.
Welcome Scoops and Barco! Hope to see you back out in the gloom soon! Good work EH’ing these men: Dawn, Flo, and Zohan!
