A beautiful morning at the Boneyard and a great turnout.  7:30 came with almost everyone ready and on time. We started with our disclaimers and then we got busy.


SSH 10 IC, Tappity Tap Taps 10 IC, Franken steins 10 IC, Baby Arm Circles 10 IC (both directions).

The promise of a no Burpee beatdown was quickly out the window as Polaroid’s punishment for being late was 10 Burpees.  All Pax joined in support. Then we took off for a Mosey.

The Thang:

Pax ran around the block, stopping at each corner doing various Merkins.  The first corner was a normal Merkin.  The second corner was a Diamond Merkin.  The third corner introduced a new Merkin known as the Bruce and Cait, Final corner was a wide Merkin.  Pax started with 10 reps on the first trip around the block and reduced each rep count by 2 each time around the block.

Mosey to the park to grab a quick drink of water and then Mosey to the school.

Starting at one end of the parking lot Pax ran to one of the islands stopping for 5 normal Squats.  Then mosey to the next island for 5 Narrow Squats.  Wide Squats at the third island, followed by Bonnie Blares at the final island.  On the trip back to the other end of the parking lot, Pax stopped and each island and did LBC, Dying Cockroaches, Big Boy Sit-ups, and Leg Lifts.  This circuit was repeated for 20 minutes.

Mosey to Pull-up park.

Pax rotated 10 Curl-ups, 10 dips, 10 pull-ups, and 10 sit-ups.  QIC almost ended the beatdown too early by listening to his internal clock but was quickly, and rightly, corrected by the Pax.

Mosey back to the park.

Pax paired up.  While one Pax ran the field the other Pax did Freddie Mercuries.  The pairs did 100 reps.  After the rep count was reached the partner not running held a plank until the runner returned.

With 2 minutes left we circled up and ended with a few rounds of Circle Burpees.

8:30 saved us and we were done.

Count off



Tebow’s grandmother is having difficulty breathing without oxygen.  There may be some difficult lifestyle changes and challenges ahead for her.
