Today YHC is going to tell you a story of the Groundhog Day of horror. This story begins on February first. The groundhogs of the Slab burrow sent a message out to all male groundhogs that have been at the Slab burrow about their planned morning get-together on Groundhog Day. In the wee morning gloom, three brave groundhogs descended upon the Slab burrow on Groundhog Day. These brave souls were there to prime their bodies for the festivities of the day and hopefully get an early glimpse of their shadows.


These festivities started with a Warm-o-rama. These groundhogs moseyed ½ the way around the Slab to before completing some exercises that included SSH, Weedpickers, Windmills, Imperial Walkers, Sun Gods, and Michael Phelps. Next, the groundhogs moseyed back to the finest spot at the burrow that they called the clubhouse. It provided a bit of cover from the drizzle and more importantly would keep them from being harassed by their Ms when they returned to their own burrows.


To prepare themselves they followed a prescribed routine they refer to at The Thang. It looks something like the below:


10 rounds

On Odd Round – bear crawl to edge of cement (~12 ft) then crawl bear back

On Even Rounds – side crawl to edge of cement then back

Complete the prescribed reps of each of the following exercises before moving on to the next round:

Alarm Clocks – 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1

Burpees – 5-10-5-10-5-4-3-2-1

Alternating Side Lung (each leg) – 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Fox Holes – 10-5-10-5-10-5-4-3-2-1

Heels to Heaven – 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1


Unfortunately, the break of dawn fell upon these groundhogs before they could complete all 10 rounds.


At the break of dawn, the groundhogs circled up before returning to their burrows. They gave grace, lifted their brother groundhogs in prayer, and then departed with enough time to return to their burrows and join all groundhogs in watching the groundhog father (Punxsutawney Phil) predict if winter would remain or if spring would come early.
