12 Days of Shifty Shifty at Graveyard

I enjoyed sleeping in a little before heading over for the 5:30 start with the men of Graveyard.  And let me tell you buddy, I needed the extra rest.  My feet had no sooner hit the pavement than #Spackle started #Spackling me, as only he can do.  I can’t lie, I wore my orange Clemson hoodie just for him so the talk may have been warranted.  Luckily, Hopper, Dance Machine, and Bulldog came rolling in hot so we got started on trying to quiet down Spackle.  Here’s how we did it.

1 MW



Mosey over to the bottom of Reaper Hill.  Spackle is still going strong about Clemson cheating and paying players and something about how the Gamecocks have never won the SEC so instead of my normal nice number style warmup we hit


3 burpees OYO

just to give him a little reminder of the last time rent was due.  We also did

10 TTTs IC (nice and slow)

and then hopped right into the 12 Days of Christmas workout.  Cones were placed about 50 feet apart going up Reaper Hill.   The goal is to get all the way through the 12 Days of Christmas cones just as you would the song.  For example, on the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me 3 lunges (run to Cone 3, perform exercise, run to Cone 2), 2 T-plank merkins (perform exercise, run to Cone 1), and 1 plankjack merkin. The number of reps is the same as the number on the cone.

Here’s what the cones said:

1 – Plankjack merkin

2 – T-plank merkins

3 – Lunges (each leg)

4 – Jump squats

5 – Burpees (Bulldog and Dance Machine were both BIG fans)

6 – Iron crosses

7 – LBCs

8 – Merkins

9 – Monkey humpers

10 – Broad jumps

11 – Flutter kicks (2 count)

12 – Squats

Cones were placed in pairs, March Madness style (1 and 12, 2 and 11, 3 and 10, etc.) so thinking got a little tough at times.  We all hung together and the #2ndF was undeniably great.  Had a great time with these guys this morning, as I always do at my home AO 😉  

Spackle’s mumblechatter game is strong.  So strong that sometimes I don’t even know what he’s talking about.  At some point, he was gonna take Bulldog to a #ShiftyShifty concert, but next thing I know, #ShiftyShifty is trying to impeach our president.

Hopper and Spackle kept trying to skip cones but policed each other and stayed in line quite nicely.

Lots of laughs this morning with these dudes.  Even got to meet DM’s pooch.

Mosey back to the flag for a few minutes of #Mary at Spackle’s insistence.
