Post-Groundhog: Week 1 (MSP)

The gopher saw his shadow on Monday, so six more weeks of being winter weatherproof in Minnesota. Week one was enhanced with some overnight snow that paved this mornings workout.

The tribe united, per usual, between the museum and theatre. A bounce ensued, followed by some face stretching, then the warmup trot. Even in the snow and dropping temps, MSP heated up the streets early. Our warmup finished atop the Cinnabon hill in Gold Medal Park.


This week brought about a new workout. Four stations (2Burpees, 2FlyingDutchmen) were situated around the base of our cone-shaped hill. Tribesmen ran the circle around the hills bottom, completing 10 reps at each station, and summiting the hill after each burpee station. The whistle was blown three times throughout the workout, signaling the start of a “FireDrill”. A FireDrill meant that everybody, regardless of where they were, sprinted to the top of our snowy hill, found a partner, and finished ten hoisties before continuing their workout.


We finished the workout with a final Fire Drill, and the whole tribe finished ten hoisties, ten burpees, and ten flying Dutchmen together. Positivity was passed on to Jeremy Reichenberger, and The Lumberjack is now being worn by a Ben, who owns a very Lumberjack-type beard.

The beards are strong, the tribe is strong.

Get at us next Wednesday. Mill City Museum. Just Show Up
