After wrestling the Q away from Hotspot, picking up Biner and seeing no bat-signal at PBX’s, YHC rolled into a darkened Apex Nature Park. On the way in, we passed a group of runners (the usual suspects) – Hotspot, Michelob, Pet Sounds, and Old Maid. As we gathered in the gloom, Pet Sounds mentioned that he would like something a little run-lite since we’ve logged so many miles in F3 this week. YHC agreed it has been a little run-strong, and felt he could accommodate the request.
Take off down the parking lot toward the entrance to pick up Pickles, then Circle Up.
30x Low Slow Flutter. This proved to be another rousing round of suck-sess.
30x Side Straddle Hop
10x Good Mornings
20x Imperial Walkers
Run up the hill toward the entrance. Someone (Michelob?) mentioned “Hey, there are basketball courts” so YHC lead us there.
13 hours of the Merkin Clock (2x 12s of course)
Count off 1s and 2s
1s Balls to the Wall
2x Suicide, Flapjack
1s People’s Chair
2s Suicide, Flapjack
Up the path back to the sidewalk for a lap around the fields with stops for
20x Jump Squats
20x Jump Lunges
YHC had noticed the Tennis Courts when we pulled in, so we entered the cage with 5 full courts:
Bear Crawl the width of two courts
Burpee Broad Jump the width of one court
Crawl Bear the width of two courts
People’s Chair until all are done, then a 5 count down the (long) line
Jog out of the cage, and into the cage next door,
Balls to the Wall until someone (Nature Boy?) called Uncle
20x Homer to Marge
15x Low Slow Flutter – the PAX complained we didn’t go to 30. Have to come back to these to keep the PAX happy.
Leave the cage and head down the path after a quick check of the clock. Yes, the PAX figured out we were heading to Bear Crawl Bridge, no they did not enjoy it.
At the bridge: Bear Crawl Down, Lunge Walk back, Plank Hold for the Six.
The jog the wrong way to the manhole, then loop back to the parking lot. YHC can only determine that the PAX enjoyed the manhole given the amount of mumble-chatter it received on the way to the parking lot.
Surprise! 30x Low Slow Flutter

YHC took us out.
Great work today men. The humidity is ramping up and it was good to see so many flowers in the sweat: it’s a beautiful sight. I was honored to lead such an inspirational group of men.
