Persevering through the dark and the cold – LG 11/12

Valiant effort of the PAX warmed bodies and dare I say… hearts?

Maybe not. But either way, 9 of Natville’s finest kicked off the warm covers of the fartsack and braced themselves for a cold dose of DRP. The mercury was pushing 35 degrees, which in YHC’s estimation is considered “significantly less than warm”. With the Grinder boasting a strong splinter contingent, YHC was concerned he’d be boot camping solo. Remembering his elementary school teacher’s exhortations about the benefits of the buddy system, YHC attempted to encourage Man Eater to abstain from the splinter through winsome arguments and outright mockery. Alas, no dis could dissuade him. However, 6 of the other PAX correctly decided that, regardless of whatever YHC had devised, going on a Thor-led run would be far, far worse. So a band of 7 moseyed across Wendover to the middle of a cold, desolate field for…


  • 20 SSH
  • 20 Imperial Walkers
  • 10x/10x Sun Gods
  • 20x Mountain Climbers
  • 15x Windmills

We traversed upward through the field to its summit under the transmission towers for an explanation of…

The Thang:

A variation on the popular Dora 1-2-3 model. PAX found themselves a buddy, and together were responsible for completing:

  • 50 burpees
  • 100 merkins
  • 200 squats
  • 300 dying cockroaches

While Buddy #1 performed those exercises to the best of his abilities, Buddy #2 ran down the hill, across Cridland and down to the pull up / dip bars on the Greenway, where he completed 5 reps on the aforementioned equipment, then returned to trade places. PAX speedily knocked this out, so we took the long way back via Indian Run on the Greenway. YHC was pleased to have time for a solid session of…


YHC announced a community Mary, with each PAX calling an exercise. From memory, PAX completed:

  • 20 heel touches – Eyeroll
  • 20 Alternating Shoulder Taps – Coach K?
  • 20 Freddy Mercuries – Man Eater
  • 20 Cindy Crawfords – Birds Nest
  • 20 Low Slow Flutter – Hoser
  • ABCs – Lite Brite
  • Can’t remember Norwood’s…
  • 20 Low Dolleys – Paula Deen
  • 5 of JR’s Worst Ab Exercise Ever


  • 3rd F at Panera on Mondays
  • Man Eater Q’ed yesterday, it probably sucked

Coach K took us out.
