The Thang

YHC said follow me and we started running toward the pavilion.  Halfway there, we noticed Gravy was pulling into the parking lot so we circled back and picked him up and continued on to the pavilion.

The thang was a 12 days of Christmas ladder.  We had 12 exercises to do with a lap around the park (.5km) in between each.  Just like the 12 days of Christmas song, on the first round we just did the first exercise.  After running a lap, we did 2 and then 1 and then another lap.  Each time through we added another exercise and repeated all of the previous exercises.

The 12 days:

  • 1 Burpee
  • 2 Merkins
  • 3 BBS
  • 4 Squats
  • Motivators from 5
  • 6 Flutter Kicks (4ct)
  • 7 Burpees
  • 8 Merkins
  • 9 BBS
  • 10 Squats
  • 11 Flutter Kicks (4ct)
  • 12 Burpees

Chubbs and Gravy made it through the 9th day.  Snoop and Less completed 8.  YHC finished 7.
