19 PAX gathered from Donut Shop and The Nunnery for a good old-fashioned field day, with some familiar events and some new ones.

Warmer:

  • SSH
  • Hillbillies
  • Abe Vigodas
  • Daisy Cutters
  • Run to Priory Grassy Area

Field Day:

  • Duck Duck Goose
    • Everyone in a circle, with PAX performing shoulder taps, while one person is “it.” If you get tagged as the “goose,” you must try to tag “it” before they get back to your spot. If “it” is tagged, they go to the mush pot in the middle and perform burpees for the entire next round. “Goose” is now it for round 2.
    • Round 2 – Merkins/Dealer’s Choice
    • Round 3 – squats
    • Round 4 – mountain climbers
  • Magnificent Sevens
    • Mosey to the football field and line up along the west goal line. 7 cones spaced every 10 yards.
    • 1st Out: Rifle carry to the 1st cone – 1 merkin on block; Rifle Carry to 2nd cone – 2 merkins; 3rd cone – 3 merkins, etc. up to the 7th cone. AMRAP LBC’s on the last cone so team stays together;
    • 1st Back: Farmer carry between cones – Squats (same pattern)
    • 2nd Out: Murder Bunny between cones – Kettlebell Swings (same pattern)
    • 2nd Back: Lunge Walk between cones – Curls (same pattern)
  • Three-Legged Races
    • PAX partner one (1 Donut guy, 1 Nunnery guy if possible), and perform multiple rounds:
      • Round 1 – traditional 3-legged race, out and back
      • Round 2 – backwards 3-legged race, lunge 3-legged race back

COT: I recently listened to a podcast interview of Albert C. Brooks, a social scientist who researches happiness and living your best life. He pointed out that the loneliest group of people in America is men in their 60s. He attributed this to the fact that most of us strive to achieve things in life without taking time to enjoy the relationships we have, which, in the end, turn out to be what life is all about. An encouragement to begin managing relationships early on and conducting regular “check-ins” with friends and family that mean the most to us, so those relationships stick around for the long haul.
