YHC was not necessarily planning on attending Blacktop this day. His back was still tight from the Armory – Blacktop Convergence on Friday where the combination of kettlebell swings, burpees, sprints, and the lack of a consistent stretching protocol led the muscles in his back to constricting to a point where walking straight was painful. YHC spent time stretching throughout the day. Saturday was stretching & broga at WarTowne. So although the back was feeling better, YHC was unsure if he should push himself at the Blacktop in the gloom. Smartsack would be best. However, YHC knew that gainz would not be made in the sack. I’ll ruck-it YHC decided. Quickly, he got ready and raced to The Blacktop breaking the number 6 rule of F3 Cherokee, Check SLACK.

Alas, there was only one other PAX that had emerged for gainz in the gloom. It was Bachelorette; excited to finally have another PAX arrive at The Blacktop.  Where was everyone else? Tenderloin, Koi, Walley, Sega, Matchstick? The watched chirped 0500. YHC knew what he had to do, “Let’s Mosey,” he exclaimed!


The Thang: String of Pearls

PAX did 20 count of 3 exercises and then would make a lap around the front parking lot.

  1. Dips, Merkins, curls
  2.  OHP, Curls and Merkins
  3. OHP, curls, bent over rows
  4. Squats, Bent over rows, Merkins, Alabama Prom Dates (Yes, I know that is 4 exercises)

Moseyed to Mt. Killamylunga and ran up the mountain. Moseyed back down and then Bernie Sanders up the mountain.

Moseyed back to flag right at 0545.

Upon getting in the truck, YHC checked SLACK and saw that Koi and Wally had kids awake at early hours of the morning, Sega had a sinus infection, and Tenderloin went back to bed.

Great morning in the gloom with some great mumblechatter with Bachelorette.
