Bumps in the Road

Quick DiCCS including rant about my headlamp dying on prerun and we’re off.

Warmup

Mosey behind the school and to the bus lot

  • 20 SSH
  • Jimmy Dugan
  • 20 Mountain Climbers
  • Calf Stretch
  • Upward Dog

Focus is on circling back for the 6. If you choose to stay and Mary alternate between Big Bois and LBCs.

The Thang

Mosey to the adjoining neighborhood and stop at intersection at top of culdesac – 10 Tysons IC

Head to next intersection on your 6

Team to do 20 reps of each exercise at each intersection then run to next intersection in a figure eight around the neighborhood. When you hit next intersection circle back or Mary. Foundation has to do 39 birthday reps and then chase us.

First – American Hammers

Foundation not only completed the extra reps but chased everyone down and was first to the next intersection. He must have used all his energy on that because he stuck with us the rest of the time. Next intersections

  • Jump Squats
  • Flutters
  • Dry Docks
  • Plank Jacks
  • Freddy Mercury
  • V-Ups
  • American Hammers

Mosey back to the top of the culdesac. Triple Nickle Just go down and back 5 times

10 Bobby Hurleys at top/10 Merkins at bottom

On 3rd round switch to 5 and 5

Someone understood that as after the 3rd round we are done (maybe because I give terrible great directions and whispered spoke very loud and concise) either way I was glad to stop

As we laid there doing some abs, Mad dog made a joke about about how the lack of headlights made this a lot less safe (especially Zin’s sweet ninja outfit). Mid sentence a car whipped around the bend and we all sprang up before we became just a couple more bumps in the road.

Let’s mosey back to the school and stop at the first light pole

Paula Abdul –

Run 2 light poles do a burpee

Run back 1 pole do 5 jump squats

After first one decided we should increase burpees by 1 every time and got to 5 at the end

Mosey to the parking lot and Foundation will count us out for 39 more American Hammers IC

Moleskin

Shaking off a little rust after months of not Qing or even being out here. Great push by everyone and circling back kept us all together for the most part. Glad to be back out here with you guys.

As a Watchtower regular, I do love pulling back into the parking lot and seeing a ton of guys mashing. Those guys make no excuses!

Today was a good reminder of why DiCCS and safety is so important. I know we got a little complacent seeing no cars on the road but the past few days have had more cars than I even remember before Covid and it seems they have the same mindset not expecting cars (or people) on the road. Let’s keep emphasizing Safety (also I hope I am not at the workout where Mad Dog has to make another announcement).

2 FNGs today – welcome GameBoy and Magnolia!

Motorboat tried to sneak in as an FNG for a name change but just too good of a name!
