PAX: The Count, Fastlane, Peanuts, John Doe, Vaccine, Escobar, Moneyball

AO: Hacksaw


The rain had just stopped and it was in the 50’s. MUCH nicer than we had anticipated. We had to move across the street to the police department’s parking lot due to flooding over at the usual spot (The Count scouted that out during his scuba-ruck.


We warmed up with SSH x 20, the most fun warm up ever, the side straddle hop merry-go-round, and some stretching to include little baby arm circles forwards and reverse, Morracan Night Clubs, and then a mosey across the police station parking lot to the farmers market and back.

The Thang

The group partnered up and together we used coupons to complete a Dora

100 Curls, 200 Overhead presses, 300 Squats and 400 single count flutter kicks. While one partner Bernied 100 yards and ran back the other partner cranked out the reps.

Once that was finished we gathered at the pavilion and while one partner did 30 SSH the other did a little wall sit boxing. We did 3 rounds, switching each time the partner reached 30 SSH.

We finished with Mary which was a Pax choice and ended with either 1 minute and 30 or 1 minute and 35 seconds of plank (John Doe and Escobar are still sorting out the official times.


My verse for the morning was Hebrews 10:24-25. “and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works, not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day drawing nigh. As I read that the evening before, I reflected on what we have in this group in terms of shared accountability and fellowship. Coming together each week is not always easy due to other commitments, fatigue, weather, etc., but you guys keep coming back and it motivates me to do the same and gets easier every day.


The only modification I made to my original plan for the workout was I called an audible on doing the monkey humpers after I realized we were in the police parking lot and there were 4-5 police officers watching us. I just didn’t have the guts to go there and deal with the questions of us all being taken in for lewd conduct at the Collegedale police department.
