Finish what you started: Tortoise and the Hare BOMBS part II

THE SCENE: A cool and comfortable 58° at the shiniest AO.


Imperial Walkers IC X25
Daisy Pickers IC x20
Arm Circles IC x10 (+ reverse)

Since YHC’s running ability is currently hampered due to injuries, no running. So instead, we bear crawled the length of the field and back (200 yards). Choker wasn’t sure if YHC was serious, and some random grumbling ensued. This pleased YHC.

Buddy up with one coupon between each pair.

Partner #1 grabs coupon and starts walking while partner #2 does first exercise on the list and then chases down Partner #1. When he catches his partner, they swap: Partner #2 takes the coupon while Partner #1 does the same exercise. Coupons were either 60# or 80#.

Repeat until all exercises have been done 5 times BY EACH partner.
– 20 BBSU (200 per pair)
– 25 Squats (250 per pair)

Choker led some uncountable number of flutter kicks for the minute or so we had before we ran out of time.

Choker, Wall Builder, Soulja Boy, Fugitive, Ice Cube, Tree Hugger, Orange Julius, Zima (QIC)

Finish what you started. Tiger Lily started the Tortoise and Hare BOMBS (w/ coupons) workout Friday but only made through the BOM before time ended the workout – today we finished what we started. In life, we often attack new projects with eagerness, but the grind of finishing the job can wear on us and we can let things sit idle, unfinished. We need to be better – finish what we start and do it to the best of our ability.

GREAT work by the HIM that posted this AM. It was quite encouraging working alongside the PAX today.

Tortoise and Hare is a fantastic WOD – probably too long even for a Mothership Q, but it blasts everyone equally. Definitely a good way to modify Dora123s or similar.
