Conditions: 39 degrees and chilly for an April morning. Most pax came prepared and bundled up in their beanies, sweats, tights, etc.
Mosey to amphitheater for COP.
SSH x 25 IC
IW x 20 IC
TTT x 20 IC
Merkins x 15 IC
The Thang part 1:
box jumps up amphitheater. 20 calf raises at the top. Jog to hand rails and 10 supine pull ups. jog down steps. 20 derkins. 20 dips. rinse and repeat 3x.
At this point Moneypenny showed up fashionably late…only to be punched in the face by the next exercise set.
The Thang part 2:
11’s (big boy sit ups at the bottom of amphitheater, jog to the top and burpees). 1 big boy/10 burpees to start.
LBC on six.
Mosey back to the track
Grab some wall squats on the way.
7 minutes of Mary. (10 regular merkins, 10 wide arm merkins, 10 diamond merkins, 20 Russian twists, 20 flutter kicks, 20 heels to the heavens IC)
YHC thought there was going to be a full mutiny when burpees were called for on the 11’s. Heard comments like “that’s what you came up with?” “your name was on the Q sheet for weeks and this was the best thing you can come up with?”
nevertheless the pax begrudgingly took it on. Bud eagerly accepted the challenge and took off like a bat out of hell. Money Penny and Toothpick couldn’t catch him as hard as they tried.
YHC’s favorite comment of the day “I have never looked forward to 2 burpees as much as these 2.”
YHC thinks Bud and Firedaddy both ate the same bad Mexican last night, no one could escape their foul smelling flatulence. Maybe that was the nitro turbo charge that spurred Bud onto his glorious victory in the 11’s burpees/sit up set.
Second favorite comment of the morning was also from Toothpick. When we arrived back at the flag for Mary. Toothpick correctly ascertains that I am just trying to fill time at this point (9 minutes left) when he stated, “I hate this part of the Q, when you have 9 minutes left and have run out of things to do.” Yep…so when all else fails…do some merkins and mary.
Apparently YHC was calling the cadence too quick for Money Penny on heels to the heavens. Sorry YHC’s legs aren’t 5 feet long…
Bud chided Money Penny, Toothpick, and Firedaddy for not posting on Saturdays anymore. The proof is in the pudding. Havoc on Saturdays make Pax super fit…as evidenced by Bud kicking everyone’s arse today.
- Convergence with Speed trap at the Roost on Thursday. Firedaddy has the Q. Spread the word.
