12 Days of Ballast Beatdown

“Christmas is best pondered, not with logic, but with imagination.” Max Lucado

“God never gives someone a gift they are not capable of receiving. If he gives us the gift of Christmas it is because we all have the ability to understand and receive it.” Pope Franc

of Pax: 4

Pax: Dogwood, Crocket, Circuit Breaker & Gravity
QIC: Gravity
Weather: 39 decrease and a bit gloomy & airish.
Soundtrack: Classic Christmas toons

Windmills: 15 IC
Dynamic Warm Up Lap around the parking lot.
The Thang:
Grab the speaker bot and mosey to the Wilson Center Parking Deck at 3rd & Hanover Streets.

Run the stairs to the top of the deck one step at a time.

At the top, we complete the 12 Days of Christmas, starting with a lap around the outside edge of the deck.

1 – Sundial Merkin
2 – Turkish Get Ups – repeat #1
3 – Star Jumps – repeat #1 & 2
4 – Wall Bridges – repeat #1, 2 & 3
5 – 5 Golden Rings (5 Side Straddle Hops IC + 5 Burpees) – repeat #1,2, 3 & 4
6 – Monkey Humpers – Repeat #1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
7 – Flutter Kicks – 2 count – repeat #1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6
8 – Glute Bridges – repeat (you get the idea by now)
9 – Carolina Dry Docks
10 – American Hammers – 2 Count
11 –Dead Stop Merkins
12 – Heel Tap Squats

By #10 we could tell we were getting short on time, so we cut the lap to a run across the deck and back. All four of us finished the 12 days – strong work by all.

Mosey through the deck with the Christmas music playing a full volume – there are some really good acoustics in the deck

COT: Prayers for Crocket’s nephew Cameron – struggling with life and is in a dark place.
Prayers for Dogwood’s wife and her co-workers. 9 months out of work in which their vocation is their passion. Prayers for Gravity: involved in a lawsuit and the mediation is this Thursday.

Moleskins: T-Claps to Circuit Breaker for assuming the role of Site Q for Ballast Beatdown. It is in great hands.

Thanks for letting me lead.
