Northeast Tennessee

Sweaty Merlot

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Arrowhead (Indian Trail)

It was cloudy morning, about 70 degrees, with the kind of humidity that sneaks up on you when you’re 15 minutes into the workout.  The AO is missing three of the five tires, so the original plan was revised.  12 PAX embraced today’s journey…

A thorough disclaimer was given

  • Motivator from 7
  • Slaughter Starter (to make up for the thorough disclaimer)
  • Mosey the long way to the playground

11’s at the monkey bars and the fire hydrant (about 30 yards away)

  • Merkins and Pull-ups

Mosey back to the track.  Split into teams of four.  The first PAX did 10 lunges each leg while the other three did AMRAP of one exercise below

  1. Carolina Dry-Docks
  2. American Hammers
  3. Squats

Once the lunges were complete, all four PAX Bear-Crawled 20 paces.  Then everyone shifted one position down, so the Squatter became the Lunger, the Dry-Docker became the Hammerer, and so on.  Rinse and repeat until time was called.  The humidity provided a formidable aura that blanketed the PAX as slight mumble chatter accented drips of sweat on the pavement.  Piercing through the aura was the sound of one PAX splashing merlot, showing the limit of human physicality and thus justifying the need for a three minute disclaimer.  Most groups made it about 1/3 of the way around the track.
