A PAX of 24 gathered in the cold gloom of the North Hills Urban Jungle ready to work up a thirst. Orwell’s promise of a healthy serving of double IPAs challenged YHC to give the PAX what they rolled out of their fartsacks for.
Light Jog through the streets of North Hills shopping mall. Christmas music and mouth breathing heard all around.
Circle up in the North State Bank parking lot for warm up:
Good morning- SSH- Merkins- Imperial Walker -Mountain Climbers
Frogger across Six Forks to Bagel Hill for the First Serving of IPA.
All you can drink for 10 minutes.
PAX starts on far side of parking lot using parking blocks for 5 incline merkins
run to middle of parking lot for 5 prisoner squats
run to base of bagel hill, bear crawl up hill, run down
run back to middle of parking lot for 5 burbees
On your own, start cycle over again adding one rep to each exercise. Like a good IPA starts hoppy and smooth but then alcohol slow burn and bitterness kick in. After 10 minutes halt.
Recover on run around building and through Harris Teeter parking Garage to World of Beer. Disappointed PAX find WOB dark and closed. Circle up.

Second Round of IPAS
Pax is promised this all you can drink round won’t last 10 minutes. Pax agrees with second round to start at 10 reps per exercise and count down by 1 each cycle. Slight change to some exercises:
PAX starts on far side of parking lot using parking blocks for 10 decline merkins
run to middle of parking lot for 10 prisoner squats
run to base of bagel hill, Run up hill, run down
run back to middle of parking lot for 10 burbees
True to style, the Double IPA smacks you in the face with bitterness and alcohol and doesn’t let up.
After 7 minutes and massive amounts of grunts second round of all you can drink halts.
Thanks to Larry David, YHC finds out PAX has 10 minutes to frogger to the other side of Six Forks.
American Hammer x30, Freddy Mercury x 25, LBC x30, 6 inch leg hold. Done.
