13 Pax showed up to see what today would look like on the misty fields of Fletcher Park, but, after a quick loop, YHC decided to head elsewhere to test out some new terrain. ¬†Thinking that asphalt would have held less of the previous night’s deluge than the fields, we did a brief recon around the park, with a Warmup COP mixed in (20x SSH-IW-GM) and some Burpees (10 OYO) at the upper parking lot and some plankoramas intermixed, we trotted around Washington to Raleigh Charter High School, alma mater of the Beardless Bob Vila (he wasn’t there to join us, being otherwise engaged at the ‘office’). ¬†Once there, we lined up for:


  • 20x Merkins – 20x Squats – 20x Russian Hammers
  • Wind Sprints
  • 16x Merkins – 16x Squats – 16x Russian Hammers
  • Wind Sprints
  • 12x Merkins – 12x Squats – 12x Russian Hammers
  • Wind Sprints
  • 8x Merkins – 8x Squats – 8x Russian Hammers
  • Wind Sprints
  • 20x Merkins – 20x Squats – 20x Russian Hammers

Mosey over to mystic oak clearing for 10 burpees OYO, and



  • Tremendous difficulty coming up with a proper name for today’s FNG with a Crossfit shirt on (sorry Bailiff), who was invited by Orwell, who did not show up
  • Prayers for Dufresne’s family
  • Polar Vortex was conspicuously absent, just like Orwell
  • Thanks for the chance to lead, I love this game
