English lessons – Awning vs Portico

20 humidity-loving Highlanders suffered through a suckfest at the hands of YHC. When I pulled in and saw Gump doing his yoga/roller routine, I knew we were in for some mumblechatter.  Thankfully a modified Vern shut that down pretty quickly.

0530 – Mosey to MS lot (dodging @Bootstrap’s SUV as he brings it in on 2 wheels), mixing in buttkickers, high knees, Stoli skips and Imperial walkers for good measure


  • SSH x 19 (IC)
  • Windmill x 15 (IC)
  • Mountain Climbers x 10 (IC)
  • 10 Burpees OYO
    • At this point Gump quips: “Oh, so it’s going to be one of THOSE workouts”  Not sure what you meant there, but no time to waste… let’s roll.

Mosey to Bus Lot for Modified Vern

  • Start at 1st basketball hoop – launch point
  • Run to pull-up bars – 10 pull-ups –> back
  • Run to guard rail – 20 dips –> back
  • Run to light pole – 25 merkins –> back
  • Run to overhang/portico/awning – 30 LBC –> back
  • Repeato x 5 rounds
    • Time was called at 0610 for MARY


  • Pretzel Crunch x 10 (IC)
    • Flapjack
  • Reverse Crunch x 15 (IC)
  • Squirm x 19 (IC)



  1. The Vern is unrelenting.  I wanted to mix it up today, lengthening the runs between exercises but cutting the 3/4 mile bookend runs so that we had time for some other stuff… one on hand, mission accomplished; on the other, complete failure.  Sound off if you finished all 5 rounds… YHC got 4.5 before pulling the cord.
  2. Knew it would be a brutal one with the humidity/temperature combo.  78 degrees with 200% humidity – sure, why not?
  3. Lots of good effort across the pax today.  @ColMustard didn’t miss a beat even after being away early in the week (Continued prayers for his M as she tries to keep the bun baking in the oven for another 5 weeks at minimum).
  4. @Kool-Aid also dominated. The only thing that almost stopped him was YHC nearly hititng him on the way out of the parking lot (Cobains brother, I was still in the sweaty pain box and not fully aware of my surroundings).
  5. @Gump, what can I say?  You show up early #stretcharmstrong, do your own workout #norunning #IEP and then continue to mumblechatter to anyone/anything who’ll listen. #spiritanimal
  6. Earned our chairs today gents.  Keep up the good work.
