Nice route, Magellan!

“Nice route, Magellan!” was not exactly a compliment when shouted by my high school baseball coach as I took a less than ideal route in effort to make a play on a fly ball. I felt those same sentiments from the PAX this morning as we made our circular journey around the AO.

Conditions: 62 degrees and a light fog

A large PAX of 20 men rolled in early this morning with tunes jammin’ and tires squallin’ – good times ahead…

Kicked off with a solid BOM then a little mosey down to the lower parking lot for our COP which went a little something like this:

  • little baby arm circles x 10 forward and reverse IC
  • windmill x 15 IC
  • side straddle hops x 20 IC
  • butt kickers x 15 IC
  • high knees x 15 IC
  • The Murcan x 15 IC

We again moseyed, but this time a little further distance.  Along the way, there were comments like, “I thought stride was just M-W-F?” Upon our arrival at the bottom of the hill, everybody partnered up and shared the following for a 5 minutes AMRAP :

1 – Sprint to the top and back – 15 murcans at the top

2 – While you were waiting on your partner, LBCs / heel touches / big boy sit ups

Then it was time for an Indian Run up the hill, across the bridge, through the sand, and back out to the main parking lot where we rejoined with our partner for the following which we did in sets of 30 seconds

1 – Lateral Hops, / forward and backward hops / quick feet drills

2- skinny murcan(elbows in) / wide murcan / normal murcan

A short mosey over to a dew moistened field for a core punisher of

Peter Parkers x 15 on your own

Parker Peter x 10 IC

Plank Roll (3 minutes total – center, right, center, left, low plank, right, center, left)

Dealer’s Choice:  Rd 1 – Recover // Rd 2 – Flutter Kicks x 20 IC // Rd 3 – Burpees x 10

And then for the finisher – sprint the length of the parking lot, then plank while we waited on everybody – hold for 10 sec. – mosey back down — three rounds
