Under the Lights

The gloom was less gloomy and more bright on this cloudy Saturday, but angels from above were heard singing as we ran past the gate down into the stadium and quickly stopped upon seeing it was unlocked.  Really?????  We’re going to the big game?  Hitting the field?!!  And away we went.

The Thang:

  1. Nanny took the initial Q and we did frog hops up the stadium steps followed by 10 merkins at bottom.  Then reverse spiderman up and 10 merkins at bottom.  Then we sprinted the stadium stairs followed by dips.  Then it was off to the plush artificial track surface for Four Corners (10 x CDD, 15 x merkin, 30 x air squat, 40 x LBC).  Lunge walk back to bleachers and stretch out and parallel crawl up the hand railings.  Then I handed the reigns to Gordo.  Say bye, bye to nice formatting.  No time for that!

The Naked Moleskin:

  1. It was a TREAT to be in that stadium “under the lights.”  Nicest Mary surface EVER!!
  2. People’s Q worked out great.  I know it is good practice for someone like me who prefers to pre-script out every minute of my Q’s.  I need work on leading on the fly.
  3. Great Q’s from Gordo and Alcatraz (and then I had to leave to head home for some early morning stuff).

    Really enjoyed my first (but definitely not my last) Highlands Saturday beat down! Great workout and it was really nice to meet some new PAX. The additional 15 min makes a big difference! Thx to all who Q’d! Looking forward to the next one.

  2. Alcatraz

    It deserves a mention that @ONJ almost killed me as his high speed sprint couldn’t make the turn during the Indian Run. He’s a dangerous man! #Respect

    Thankful to make a downPAINment with the PAX!

  3. Gordo

    Good to see the PAX Saturday morning!
