11 pax including an FNG Josie (f/k/a Sensei) gathered in the gloom at #pitchfork for a modified hero workout shamelessly stolen from Crossfit.

After a disclaimer, mission, and some #mumblechatter about Crossfit, we get moving.  As usual, our friend @ChurchLady showed up between SSH and HB during the warmup.  That dude must really hate side straddle hops.  Here is what went down:

Warm up – SSH x 36 IC, HB x 20 IC, Smurf Jacks x 20 IC

Mosey to the BB Court for a quick COP:  Tempo merkins x 20 IC, squat jumps x 20 IC, Monkey Humpers x 20 IC.

Mosey to the track.  Double applesauce Indian run for a couple of laps.  Plenty of sprinting with only 5-6 pax per line.  Circle up for explanation of the workout.

Loredo – dedicated to U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Edwardo Loredo, 34, of Houston, Texas, assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, was killed on June 24, 2010 in Jelewar, Afghanistan, when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. He is survived by his wife, First Sergeant Jennifer Loredo; his daughter, Laura Isabelle; his stepdaughter, Alexis; and his son, Eduardo Enrique.

The Thang – 24 squats, 24 merkins, 24 lunge walk steps.  Run a lap around the track.  The rabbits like @Tedidiah, @Obama, and @SoccerMom got 5 laps in…most of us only got 4 rounds total.

Mosey back to the flag…wait…let’s jailbreak half way there…for 6MOM.

6MOM – LBCs x 40 IC, Rosalita x 25 IC, Plankorama, Crunchy Frogs x 10 IC.

Prayers/Praise – continued prayer for @Hulk‘s brother.  Prayers for Lilly.  Prayers for Johnny5’s arm.  Prayers for @Bambi and @Hulk traveling.

YHC shared Hebrews 4:16 – Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.  @Whisper led us out in prayer. 


Pax worked really hard this morning and #tclaps for @Hulk for his EH on @Sensei that finally got him out.  Hope you keep posting brother!  I delegated final naming responsibility to @Hulk, or @Sensei would have been f/k/a Yoga Pants.  #neverdelegatingthatagain

@Thumper has gone all beast mode on us the last couple of months.  Pre-post running and his hamster wheel of suck with pull-ups.  TClaps on your work brother!

YHC has the Q at Gideon’s House mañana.  Be there at 0515.

Always a pleasure.
