I thought last week I was safe to pack away the tights until the fall… WRONG!!! At least The Arena has the absolute gold-standard of bathroom situations and YHC got a warm up BM before the BD. TMI?
Warm-a-rama: 10 SSHs. That’s all…
1 mile Bataan Death March with Sandbag: Indian run where the first guy in line carries a 40 lb sandbag and the last guy drops and does 5 burpees before sprinting to the front and taking the sandbag from the first guy. Everyone really seemed to love the sequence of burpees then sprint then run with a sandbag.
After the death march mile, we continued running laps with two toll-gates (one at the beginning of each lap, one at the mid-point of each lap). The east toll-gate cost 20 burpees to pass every lap. The west toll-gate had an increasing toll with each lap:
- Lap 1 – 25 Bonnie Blairs
- Lap 2 – 30 Big Boys
- Lap 3 – 35 Merkins
- Lap 4 – 40 Squats
- Lap 5 – 45 Boxcutters
- Lap 6 – 50 Carolina Drydocks
- Lap 7+ 50 Burpees
No one made it to Lap 7, but everyone got at least 3 miles in.
FYI – Apparently, the description for The Arena isn’t “Burpees and Miles” but something about “High Tempo”. Oh well, everyone humored YHC by doing “high tempo burpees”.
Naked Moleskine: Is a movie really a great movie if you can’t remember the name of a single character?
