Obstacle Course, and other Shenanigans

14 of The Faithful joined in an unseasonably cool gloom, with launch temps around 37°. It was a good ol’ fashioned beatdown that went something like this…

Dynamic Mosey to Outback for Warm-o-rama

  • SSH x 35, just to get the blood flowing (some of the pax stopped around #28, thinking they must have missed a change in exercise…), Cotton Picker, Slow Squat x 10, Arm Circles OYO, while admiring the starry sky…

10 x 2 Ladder

  • 10 x 2 Ladder: start with 2 pull ups, run across field to sidewalk for 10 hand-release burpees. YHC confessed the propensity to occasionally #jellylube the ‘merican portion of the burpee, by not actually performing a full ‘merican… well, hand-release ‘mericans will solve that problem!
  • LBC’s & plank jacks while waiting on the 6 to finish up

Line up at the far side of the parking lot in front of the kiddie playground for an obstacle course…

  • Round 1: Bear crawl to far curb (groans were heard), Incline ‘Merican Plank Walk (is that a thing?) across the curb to the far corner, then broad jump / Carl Lewis back to starting point.
  • Round 2: Forwards / Backwards run through parking lot lines to far curb, Dips all along length of back curb (YHC called BS about halfway through…), then chimp walk back to starting point (ouch – gonna feel that one tomorrow)

Gather in the portico and partner up. P1 races around the church building, while P2 rests with some people’s chair. 2 rounds each.

Mary: Low Flutter, Pretzel Crunch, Mason Twist, Minute Elbow Plank


The Moleskin

  • YHC tried to call out Pharaoh for jelly lubing the chimp walk, by not having his six low enough. He logically explained that he is an evolved chimp…
  •  Ajax doesn’t mess around with pull ups. His philosophy: the faster I do them, the sooner I’ll have them done… aye.
  • I thought I remember hearing that Ghetto D prefers not to run…well, dude was pushing it around the building during the sprints. I was just trying to keep him in my sights.


  • *FREE* Mud Run ticket available for this Saturday. This is a once in a lifetime chance to be on a Mud Run team with Forgotten Jelly… Chances like this don’t come along everyday people! Jump on it!
  • Beat down Chow Down Oct. 31st. Mark your calendars and hard commit on the preblast

    And yes, we do still have a free mudrun ticket! Not only will you be running with me, but you will run with Guinness and Triple Threat!! Doesn’t get much better than that.

    Excellent beatdown Trail Mix. You covered a lot of ground this am – made me forget it was cold out.
