  • QIC: Pyro
  • The Pax: Blue Hawaiian, Cuddy, Kevorkian, Sandbagger, Unicorn, Winthorpe, Plan B, Serena, Corn Pirate, FNG (Ed Taggart), Pyro

11 Men, including an FNG, posted on a cool fall morning.  The Mission was reviewed.  Turns out the FNG was invited by Goose who was absent.  #SHAME


Warm-O-Rama: SSH, Sun Gods, Downward Dog

The Thang: Mosey to the Garber Ministry Center lot to roll the exercise dice.  First roll: #of reps, Second Die: the exercise.  The first die also determined the # of laps (i.e. 90 reps –> 9 laps)

We covered 16 laps, after an unfortunate role of 90 SSHs led to a 9-lap run.

Moseyed back to the parking lot where a roll of 3 led to 3 down and back 75% effort sprints.


Plank –> Right leg scorpioned –> Right leg AND left hand –>  Back to Plank  –> Left leg scorpioned –> Left leg AND right hand –> recover
