  • SSH IC x 30
  • Sun Gods IC x 10 forward/backward
  • Cotton Picker IC x 10
  • Windmills IC x 10

With the time change I thought it would be a little lighter, but it was still  pretty dark.  Regardless we ran down 18 hill and around 17 to the tee box where we did Shoulder Taps IC x 10.  Run to 16 tee box for Shoulder Taps IC x 10 and Burpees x 10 OYO.  Run to 15 tee box for Shoulder Taps IC x 10, Burpees x 10 OYO, WWI sit ups x 10.  Run up 11 cart path closest to tennis center and stopped next to hard courts for Shoulder Taps IC x 10, Burpees x10 OYO, WWI sit ups x 10 and Squats IC x 10.

Moseying on we took a right on Country Club and a left on 1 cart path towards the Club stopping about halfway up.  We lined up on the cart path and performed 8 reps of an exercise, sprinted across the fairway to the rough on other side and performed 8 reps of  same exercise and sprinted back.  Exercises were:

  • American Hammer IC
  • LBC on the up
  • Merkin on the down
  • Plank Jacks IC

We did this twice.  Second round Ingrown called American Hammers, II Fingers called LBCs, Peeping Tom called Merkins and Winthorpe called the Plank Jacks.

Ad-libbing a bit (and called out by Winthorpe) we bear crawled to the middle of the fairway, did 25 LBCs on my up and bear crawled back.
