First off I have to say that this workout was scheduled for Tuesday in the gloom, but as luck would have it my power went out. Since I trusted my local Duke Power station I had not set a backup plan. One of my pet peeves is to be late, and when you wake up in the dark, grab the phone and it shows 535am, you know you've screwed up. This is not like being late for a doctor's appointment, this stuff is serious. If you have ever over slept and missed a duck hunt then you know what I mean. So, I jumped out of bed, found some light, got dressed, and drove to the War Zone to apologize to the fateful PAX. As I pull up there are 3 PAX(1 had already left) breaking up and heading to their cars. I said my apologies, and all was forgiven. (I found out this morning that I was about 2 minutes from having the wrath of the GroupMe unleashed on me for not showing)
Ok, on with the show.
The WarZone has had a strong, fateful group going for a while, but as of late a few have been coming up lame with foot, calf, or other body parts failing. So at 0528 Squat and I were wondering if it was going to just be us. We had a few bolt in right at 0529:29 to bring us up to 5 for the morning.
15 Reverse Penningtons
10 Rowing Planks(New move my M came up with- Plank position, move forward so shoulders are in front of hands, move back so 6 is over feet then back to original plank=1)
I had previously gone by the WarZone and rearranged the blocks in order to find the 10 heaviest so everyone had the same block.
All PAX grab a coupon and we carried the coupons as if we were toting buckets Spartan style.
We made our way to the corner of 4th and Marlboro where I informed the group that we were doubling each corner.
First corner was 5 Burpees. We hadn't even started when 1 says "that's 40 at the end?" Of course YHC said "Yep".
Corner of 4th & Carolina= 10 Burpees
Carry coupons to the planters in front of Y.
10 step-ups each leg
Off to Carolina and 5th= 20 Burpees
5th & Marlboro= 40 Burpees
Carry coupons back around flag then place them back in their home.
Gathered in a tight circle for a Triple Double Up with 1-2-4 being used for 5 rounds
Start with 1 Merkin, 2 Penningtons, and 4 Air Presses
End up with 16 Merkins, 32 Penningtons, and 64 Air Presses
That left us with 8-10 minutes to go.
50 LBC's OYO
25 Reverse LBC's OYO (lift 6 off the ground instead of shoulders)
15 Box Cutters IC
Squat had a few he wanted to do so we did-
15 Diamond Merkins OYO
15 Squats IC
We finished with Psalms 40:1-3
"I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.
Squat finished off in prayer.
