16 PAX gathered at the Etowah High School gym parking lot and the following ensued:
After a brief mosey to the lower middle school parking lot (during which Tinfoil had a premonition that a Green Mile Q = carrying coupons), our intrepid PAX formed a makeshift circle, the QIC recited the mission, core principles, and injury admonition, and away we went:
SSH x 20
Imperial Walker x 10
Weed Picker x 5 – NICE AND SLOW, LIKE THE GOOD LORD INTENDED
Michael Phelps OYO
And then we moseyed to collect our coupons, then back to the awning in front of the middle school gym. Where 1600 meters of unpleasantness awaited.
THE THANG: 400 Meter Escalator (“The Green Mile”)
As a happy coincidence, the awning that spans the sidewalk in front of the lower middle school entrance just so happens to be 100 meters long. The PAX completed the following sequence of exercises, running that 100 meters 16 times, always holding onto their coupons. Including during each 100 meter sprint.
First 400 meters:
–After running each 100 meters: 5 curls, 5 Triceps Extension
Second 400 Meters:
–After running each 100 meters: 5 curls, 5 Triceps Extension, 10 dead lifts, 10 upright rows
Third 400 meters:
–After running each 100 meters: 5 curls, 5 Triceps Extension, 10 dead lifts, 10 upright rows, 15 squats, 15 single-leg lunges
Fourth 400 meters:
–After running each 100 meters: 5 curls, 5 Triceps Extension, 10 dead lifts, 10 upright rows, 15 squats, 15 single-leg lunges, 20 overhead press, 20 bench press
That’s the thing about escalators. You carry your exercises with you.
There was music. There was running. And in everything, there were the coupons. Never. Put. Down. The. Coupon.
Chat from brother Exile. Prayers for PAX with injuries and difficulties. Pleased to see so many PAX posting, spurning working out alone and opting to embrace the misery with their fellow man.
