Mosey to the hill. I love hills.

The Thang

Did I mention I love hills?
Facing the mighty hill we first cranked out 40 merkins then back down and did 15 more for good measure.
Run to 8th light for 10 HALF burpees (promised Burrito there would be no burpees. Not that he cares because he’s a man and loves doing hard things. Anyway, half burpees aren’t burpees so I’m not a liar), then back to start for 1 merkin. Half burp reps decrease as the merkin reps increase always adding up to eleven with the uphill and down in between. You know the drill. We started on your own but came together toward the middle of the THANG and shortened the running distance then increased it as we neared the finish line. SO MUCH FUN RUNNING UP AND DOWN HILLS.

No, really. I love hills.

We made it back to the track parking lot with enough time for Burrito to close us out with 25 SSH in cadence. He’s gonna crush it at his VQ Tuesday at Smackdown. You should come.


We chatted briefly about that daily effort to get our bodies in better physical shape. If you’re currently enjoying the gloom a couple days a week then consider upping it to 3 or 4. Challenge a buddy to x number of merkins every night, etc. ” the HIM (having turned Pro) is focused on gradually but consistently Accelerating his fitness level rather than merely staying in shape. Staying in shape is what Amateurs try to do. “


It was WET today. Thankfully, it wasn’t cold out there but I imagine we all had to try a little extra to depart the fartsack.

Burrito is featured a lot in this backblast but how can he not? The man kept us on our toes throughout the workout and even took his shorts off at one point.

Ringwald graced us with his presence. It only took me typing “Roll Tide” in the Lions den slack channel to make it happen. I’m sure he was still coming so I’m really just a sucker. GO TIGERS.

Props to Iron Butt and Red Tees for showing up a little under the weather.
