Seis de Mayo (#Sixer)

The morning began warm and muggy as tribe leader Ben gathered members in a circle at the usual meeting location.

In celebration of yesterday’s date, #NP_MSP worked out in the spirit of Seis de Mayo.  6 is so much better than 5, especially when it means 6 hill reps instead of 5.  The tribe is strong. The tribe got after it.  The workout consisted of 6 hill reps using our original hill that goes from the river up to the 35W bridge monument.

Each rep was put on a 5 minute timer which does mean you were given 5 minutes to complete a single hill rep, it means that 5 minutes was put on the clock and once the hill rep was completed, there were other conditioning workouts to be done.

The conditioning workouts that filled up the remainder of each 5 minute interval were box jumps (on a HUGE ledge), dips, and hot-footed lizards ( a mock-up of mountain climbers).  With each rep completed, the workout got harder and harder but every single tribe member completed the workout. The tribe is getting faster.

After the fierce hill workout, the tribe traveled up the “nomad” path to congregate back at the Mill for a group photo and some announcements. In support of the new #Sixer tradition, a 6 pack of assorted ales was present at the workout and handed out to 6 hard working, ass-kicking souls. Also, this week’s lumberjack is Mike Jenker, way to go Mike!
