AO: The Highlands
PAX: Maj Payne, Toolbox, Bandit and 2 Percent
Warm-Up: SSH, Matt Biondi, Windmill, WMH and The Absolutely Worst Merkins Ever TM (an inchworm merkin, a hands release merkin, a diamond merkin, a wide merkin and a Carolina Dry Dock done in succession).
The Thang: The PAX moseyed to the Costco where they performed dips and derkins on the blocks outside the parking garage. Then they ran up the parking garage stairs, across the top deck, down the far-side stairs and back to blocks for box jumps and incline merkins.
The PAX then performed a black snake to the Pentagon City Metro station, went down the escalator and into the adjacent mall. There, it was shock and huh for the poor commuters just trying to get to work as the PAX performed a Mt. Everest walk, bear crawl and a travelling BTTW through the mall and under the garage.
The PAX emerged at Pentagon Row to perform musclemakers, american hammers and seal claps. They finally moseyed back to the Highlands for merkins, WWIIs and LBCs, mule kicks and dirty dogs.
Mary: flutterkicks, protractors, and speedbike.
COT: Adm. McRaven encourages us to face our obstacles – the Shark – in Chapter 7 of “Make Your Bed.” The PAX demonstrated that there are many ways to do that, including over, under, around and through them!
