The Thang:

YHC jumped on the empty Q sheet back in early October before Hard Hat plugged in all of the dates.  A few days later I realized this would be the morning after Halloween and immediately regretted it, but figured it would be some good self-accountability.  And then the Braves kept winning, so Game 5 of the World Series lined up last night as well.  The Braves jumped out to an early lead, but that didn’t last long.  YHC was tempted to get some extra sleep, but the FOMO was real and the slight possibility of missing a come from behind WS clincher kept me up till 1230.  I knew the boys of TheOyster always turn up (#nevermissaMonday), which added some much needed accountability to beat the #fartsack this morning!

Made our way onto the baseball field and grouped at home plate for a deconstructed DORA:

Round 1 – 300 LBCs – partner runs to the out field grass past 1st base and back
(A lot of grumblings here about getting dirty … really thought #TheOyster PAX were tougher than that…)

Round 2 – 200 Squats – partner runs to 2nd base and back (not over the pitching mound – 1st base, 2nd base, 1st base, home)

Round 3 – 150 Merkins – partner runs around to 3rd base and back

Round 4 – Burpees – partner runs 2 laps around the diamond (PAX asked to keep count of burpees)

Total count for burpees was in the 85-90 range. Some PAX didn’t keep count and YHC wasn’t mathing very well that early.  So, 90 second wall sit on the chain link fence was called.  Middle 30 seconds was with heels off the ground #crowdpleaser

Next, head to the picnic tables for 11’s of Step Ups (count each leg) and Dips

A lot of mumblechatter here about Headgear being on Q Wednesday, so everyone better be ready to run.  Not wanting to seem like YHC was going easy on the running, 1 more lap around Lake Ct was called

With 5 minutes remaining, circle up for PAX choice Mary:

YHC – American Hammers x 26 IC (for the 26 years since the Braves have won a pennant)
Swiper – 6″ for 26 looooong seconds
Surf N Turf – 26 Glute Bridges each one slightly longer than the last. Feel the burn!
Manziel – 26 Hello Dollys for Butch, nice and slow
