Skip’s Prediction: Turknado

A PAX of 23 storm seekers stumbled upon a little weather this morning in the heart of Trent Woods. Here’s how it’ went down:

  • Cotton Pickers IC x 10
  • SSH IC x 10
  • Right over left/Left over right
  • Michael Phelps OYO x 8

After a mosey to the Garber parking lot in 39 degree air, a TURKNADO was spotted. A TURKNADO is the identical twin sister to the SHARKNADO.  Unlike a SHARKNADO which can appear at any given workout (and I think last spotted in this area on 2/20/17), a TURKNADO  can only appear at Thanksgiving.  I understand that this funnel cloud touched down in Carterico this morning to whoop up on those boys as well.  To be sure, the form and intensity of the funnel (as well as the exercises) increased as it headed westward.

Due to our nice numbers this morning, we divided into 2 groups.  All Pax completed at least 3 of the below rotations and some completed 4:

  • 15 Burpees; run down the outer sides of the parking lot; both groups return in the center
  • 20 Diamond Merkins;  run
  • 20 WWIs;  run
  • 20 Merkins; run
  • 20 Scorpion Dry Docks; run
  • Exercise of your choice while waiting on the 6 of your group

Though it was not mentioned this morning, I’ll renew the announcement that it sounds like several are running in the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning.  See  https://runsignup.com/Race/NC/NewBern/TwinRiversYMCATurkeyTrot for details.  YHC will be running the 10K.  Come on out and earn that turkey and dressing.

Special prayers for Kevorkian and his family.

Thankful to be able to lead the storm this morning.
