Back to the Trail

DATE: 6/6/19

PAX: Aaarrrggghhh, Coach K, Draper, Eli, Ina, Sally, Trickle
QIC: Teasip

AO: Katy Trail (back to #katytrailthursdays)


SSH x17

IST x15

Squats x 12

Head to the trail for quarter mile intervals. YHC decided to take a leaf out of Ina’s book and do 10 burpees at the start and every half mile. However, that was quickly tweaked after the PAX missed the quarter mile marker for the second quarter mile and ended up doing a half mile. Once we got a mile down the trail, we did a half mile of running down another quarter mile and back to the mile marker before we headed back down the trail. Per Coach K’s request, we did a Bataan Death March with 3 burpees the last half mile, then did 10 Burpees OYO at the start before moseying back to La Madeline for Mary.

Below are the exercises for the intervals:

Merkins x 12, Dry Docks x12

Step Ups x20, Dips x 12

Burpees x10

After half mile run: Burpees x 10

Penguin crunch x12

Burpees x10

Bataan Death March with 3 Burpees

Burpees x10

Uptown crunch x12

YHC prayed us out

Not a lot of mumblechatter. YHC and the rest of the PAX were getting concerned that the second quarter mile was longer than normal and we realized that we somehow missed the marker and ended up doing a half mile. YHC blames that on the fact that we haven’t been to the Trail in awhile. The usual groaning about burpees and the Bataan Death March which was a testament to the fact that YHC is a Q of the people as Coach K requested that exercise. Good to have Trickle back out.
