Taking The Bull by the Horns

14 faithful gathered once again at the corner of Bull and Blossom to test their mettle in the Monday morning gloom. This particular Monday, the weather that greeted the pax was a reprieve from the regular heat and humidity of the Columbia summer which we have grown accustomed to. It was this background that set the stage for #TheBull’s 3rd entrant into the coveted #400Club.

The Thang: #TheBull

From the corner of Blossom and Bull Streets, run to the top of the Bull Street hill stopping at Devine Street. Hang a left and enter the first of 3 garage stairwells. Climb to the top and complete 20 Merkins. Descend down the same stairwell, stopping at the base to complete 20 LBC’s. Continue down the Bull Street hill, stopping at the 2nd stairwell. Up and down with 20 Merkins at the top and 20 LBC’s at the bottom. Continue down the Bull Street hill, stopping at the 3rd stairwell. Up and down with 20 Merkins at the top and 20 LBC’s at the bottom. Continue down to the base of the Bull Street hill, rounding the power pole. That’s 1 rep. Rinse and repeat for 45 minutes, AMRAP. With each new rep, 1 Merkin and 1 LBC is removed (20, 20, 20, 19, 19, 19, 18, 18, 18; etc).
