2 Shovel Flags and 1 F3 Flag arrived along with a Pax of 23 including 1 FNG on a warm wet Fall Saturday morning.
Warm Up: Run across Six Forks to yet another bank parking lot. Side Straddle Hops x 25, Good Morning x 15, Imperial Walker x 20, Mountain Climber x 20.
Pax Ran up Northbrook stopping along the way. First intersection Burpees x 10, Second intersection Ski Abs x 20. Proceed up Northbrook to Brooks Elementary. Ran to the Hill Pit in back of school. Distance traveled about .6 miles.
YHC introduced the last 6 five gallon kegs of Zima Malternative known in existence. Pax divided into groups of 4:
Group 1: Run up hill with keg, using fence 10 decline merkins, run back down hill with keg.
Group 2: Balls to the Wall
Group 3: People’s Chair
Group 4: Prisoner Squats
Rotation by each group.
5 rounds were completed with a different challenge up the hill each round.
Round 2: run backwards up hill with keg, at top of hill 10 overhead keg presses, run back down hill.
Round 3: bear crawl up hill, 10 keg curls top of hill, run back down.
Round 4: backwards bear crawl up hill, 10 decline merkins, run back down.
Round 5: crab walk up hill, 10 overhead keg presses, run back down.
Pax and Kegs then ventured over to railings:
Entire Pax traversed the wet railings with hands on one side and legs on other completing a moving plank. Once entire group was on the railings, merkins x20, plank hold, dips x25, french dip.
Pax and kegs then moved to basketball courts for the Keg Race showdown
2 groups race each other around the far basketball goal and back carrying 3 kegs. Other 2 groups do LBC or WW2 sit ups while watching.
Race 1, Group 2 defeats group 1
Race 2, Group 3, defearts group 4?
Race 3, winners bracket Group 2 defeats group 3?
Race 4, losers bracket Group 1 defeats group 4?
After keg races the Dora watch indicates that we have 15 minutes to get back to Carroll. Pax decide that a keg run back is in order. Pax carry 6 kegs run back down Northbrook. The site of 23 men running down the road with 6 kegs is probably not that unusual on a college campus on a Fall Saturday. But this was a site North Hills has probably never seen. The teamwork used to get the pax and kegs back to Carroll with enough time for a quick set of American Hammers was inspiring.
