Tales From the Crest

A few guys from the Crest decided to meet up for an unofficial workout at the Briarcrest Clubhouse today.

Due to rain this morning an audible was made for an unofficial meet up at 1pm after lunch.

DiCCS were given (Disclaimer, Cell phone, CPR, Safety)

Mosey from the clubhouse to the intersection of Laurel Hill and Radcliffe to begin a preview .45ish loop of the upcoming course.  Ran the Laurel Hill/Brynmar/Avalon/Radcliffe loop explaining the four corners of 8 exercises:

Warm Up:

  • SSH x 10 IC
  • Imperial Walkers x 10 IC
  • Calf Stretch

The Thang:

First Loop

  • Corner 1: 10 Burpees
  • Corner 2: 10 Wide Arm Merkins
  • Corner 3: 10 Knee Slaps
  • Corner 4: 10 Big Boys Situps

Second Loop

  • Corner 1: 10 Mike Tysons
  • Corner 2: 20 Single leg Speed Skaters
  • Corner 3: 20 Pistol LBCs (10 each leg)
  • Corner 4: 20 Low Slow Squats

Two Loops equals 1 round, goal was 4 rounds.


This one was a burner.  Not sure if it was the humidity, the daylight which made it seem awkward, the neighbors driving by with quizzical looks, Zinfandel spying on us from his bubble, or Brutus filming us from his front sidewalk.

Some got in all 4 rounds and for those that didn’t came close.  With a longer loop that included a decent sized uphill portion made this course a tough one.  Everyone got in between 3.75 and 4.5 miles, well done!

The PAX numbers were purposely small (5) and everyone did a great job of staying 10+ feet apart and using different parts of the street and corners of the intersections.

It was great to see everyone from afar and know that I would not have pushed myself nearly as hard if the other 4 guys weren’t out there so thanks.

Also, being in the house all day gets pretty batty so this was a much needed break and detour.

Good to see Minute Man out there this morning.  Hopefully we will see more of you see the workouts are temporally and unofficially in walking distance.
