FNGs: 0
Total: 8
Conditions: brisk upper 30s, dry

Warmup: SSH, Sir Fazio, Prisoner Squats, Imperial Walkers, and 15 burpees. Suckage was confirmed.

Thang: Mosey toward the parking decks with a stop on the bridge benches for l/r stepups and dips. Continue to parking deck rockpile for main event.

Accompanied by the music of Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker”, we partnered up for some Ballet-inspired movements.

Round 1: 1 pax would run as timekeeper, while the other would use mutually selected rocks for a pirouette with the stones raised overhead, then flapjack. Second movement was Sugar Plums, a plie with the rocks swung out to the side overhand and coming back to the chest.

Round 2: more pirouette and plies, followed by a Grand Leap: sideways star jump landing on one leg.

Round 3: movement changes from running to Carioca, working pax does curls, then overhead press with one larger rock.

After completing, we ran the long way back to the flag and shared 3 minutes of choose your own mary with IC flutter kicks, WW2 setups, and finished with zombie crunches.

COT: Prayers for Rosco P’s brother in law continuing to recover from vascular blood clots, and Ponch’s friend Chris recovering from an arterial tear/heart attack, and all the troubles around the world.
