Challenge Week Diary – Wednesday

Wednesday 6am INTERVAL RUN – Obscene Obstacles

Wow! After turning up to Hindmarsh Park and NOT seeing Dave’s car parked in the laneway, questions were being asked and something was up. Instead Ali Day’s car was there but no Ali. Where are we running to Dave? All in good time guys.

All Teams were asked to put their colour differences aside and run as one in either Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced packs. They didn’t even know where they were running to but still they just kept going. After 10-15 minutes on the road we turned up to a nice sunrise at Kendall’s Beach. Waiting there was Ali Day and the Obscene Obstacle course we had promised. Down the beach, around the agility poles, through the tyres and up the dreaded staircase of the Gallipoli looking cliffs that form Kendall’s headland.

1 point per lap or 5 points for every lap completed with the Medicine Ball. 20 minutes later the BLUEs had slaughtered the opposition tallying an even 100 laps of the course. The next closest were the GREENs on 79, then the YELLOWs with 75 and RED completing 68.

KENDALL’S KILLER CHALLENGE:

1st 20 points – BLUE

2nd 15 points – GREEN

3rd 10 points – YELLOW

4th 5 pointsRED

Progressive Pointscore after Obscene Obstacles is as follows:

GREEN – 282

RED – 254

YELLOW – 247

BLUE – 228

The scores were close and everyone seemed to be fired up for Fight Club at 9:30am BOXING!

Wednesday 930am BOXING – Fight Club

A similar set up to Monday morning BOXING but quite different in the end.

Four stations, The 20/20 Shuttle, The 180 Fast/SlowRound with Laura, The Pole2Pole plus The old Hill Round. Good news was the rounds were only 2 minute and not 3 like the other sessions. This didn’t mean it was any easier though with all Teams pushing the Intensity levels up in the quest for maximum points.

THE HILL CHALLENGE:

1st 20 points – BLUE

2nd 15 points – GREEN

3rd 10 points – YELLOW

4th 5 points – RED

THE POLE2POLE CHALLENGE:

1st 20 points – BLUE

2nd 15 points – GREEN

3rd 10 points – YELLOW

4th 5 pointsRED

THE 20/20 SHUTTLE CHALLENGE:

1st 20 points – BLUE

2nd 15 points – GREEN

3rd 10 points – YELLOW

4th 5 pointsRED

Time was up at 10:15am when class normally finishes and I thought we weren’t going to have time for our Fight Club challenge. That was each Team nominate to go 2 minutes with the Champ. They lined up in droves for their chance to belt me up and I’m sure no one will argue Cathy Grose Jones was the standout going first. She pounded me all over the stage and set a standard that few others could match. Every participant worked hard though and looked they enjoyed the 1-on-1 stuff.

Fight Club Champion and RED Team MVP

Progressive Pointscore after Fight Club is as follows:

GREEN – 342

BLUE – 307

YELLOW – 293

RED – 282

Great stuff folks! I couldn’t believe how close the scores were and how the rankings kept changing. Except the GREENs still leading, going strong. Could they keep it up though?

I knew we’d see what everyone was made of at Adrenaline Abs at 6pm CORE.

Wednesday 6pm CORE – Adrenalin Abs

The heavens opened up for our CORE session.  That didn’t bother me, as I have only ever cancelled ONE outdoor fitness session over the last 7 years.  And that was because of lightning. Well that happened again. It was a little dodgy at times but we had 25 eager participants keen to do something. So huddled under the shelter of the stage we hit the planks, side planks and diagonals until we ran out of options. After all, the equipment was sitting in the pouring rain in the middle of the park.

I REALLY wanted to do one of the Challengers I had set aside for tonight but it was dangerous at times with some lightning around and understandable that people didn’t want to get out in the rain.

But some people did and we conjured up the slightly unusual “Abs of Steel” challenge.  The team that could produce the best belly slide through the big puddles of water in front of us would WIN.

So Chief Brad Moore stepped up and showed us he had plenty of guts, so to speak, taking out the belly slide challenge with ease.

Updated scores after CORE are:

GREEN – 372

YELLOW – 323

BLUE – 320

RED – 315

So the Challengers were sent with an early mark and told to gear up for Thursday morning’s STRENGTH session titled Muscular Mission
