Glory Days

Workout Date:





Skidmark, The Intern, El Red Cardo, Beefsteak

The Thang:

Conditions: Cool (about 45 degrees), overcast and misty.  YHC arrived at the AO several minutes early awaiting the arrival of all HIM ready for a beatdown.  As I had walked out the door i reached back and grabbed a portable radio to blast some tunes while we worked.  About 3 minutes out, The intern arrived followed quickly by Skidmark.  Beefsteak and El Red Cardo cool in at the start of the workout and YHC begins the music choice of 90s Alternative/Grunge (Classic rock to The Intern).

(=60 Merkins)

Merkin Mile 15 Merkins run half lap around entire AO, 15 Merkins (at baseballs diamond) rum half lap, 15 Merkins; rinse and repeat 4 times. (=120 Merkins)


During the first lap Green Day kicks in on and Skidmark comments that this was the first official concert he had ever attended and YHC got an idea.  YHC polled the other PAX regarding their first official concert and Alexa would play tunes from each.  To my surprise Bruce Springsteen (Glory Days) was first concert of 2 of the PAX (El Red Cardo and The Intern (must have been out with the P’s)). Drivin’ and Cryin’ was my first few concerts thanks to #theAfterdeck in MB. Lastly Beefsteak comments that James Taylor was his fist concert so we had to honor James with Fire and Rain before getting back to appropriate beatdown music.  Blast some Van Hallen!

YHC sees stack of palates and gets idea to get some legs in.

Palate pushing grass burners: all Pax align on corner of AO adjacent to dumpster.  Each Pax has opportunity to call exercise for other PAX AMRAP while said PAX pushes palate to the handicap ramp (burning legs) and moseys back.  Two full rounds were completed so 10 different exercise reps were called and each PAX burned legs twice.

Mosey back to shovel flag for 4 min of MARY;

Each Pax called exercise allowing for round robin leadership.  YHC called 22 Merkins (in honor of veteran suicide) just to ensure PAX didn’t feel cheated out Merkins.
