Thursdays with Candy

After being abruptly awoken in the early morning hours, once by thunder, then a second time by Smart phone flood alert, YHC thought it prudent to check with the AO Q to make sure the work out was still on.  With confirmation obtained, YHC was able to reach the “event horizon.”  Smart phone chatter during the ride to the AO gave further reassurance that YHC would not be posting alone. However, a brief moment of doubt did arise when YHC arrived 5 minutes prior to start time to an empty parking lot.  But, It did not take long for the Warrior Pax to arrive eager to make a down painment.  6 PAX in total defied the fartsack and the weather to get better and this is how they did it…

Conditions: 67, 87% humidity with 100% rain

disclaimer and prayer

The Thang:

mosey through the portables, to the top of Mt. Midway then down to the track taking 7/8 of a lap around mix’n in some high knees, butt kicks, karaoke, then climb the Mt.

Circle up on the Higher Basketball court for COP

all exercises in cadence

SSHx20, TTTx15, WMx15, merkinx10 and hold your plank, MCx20 and hold your plank, CDDx10, and hold your plank,  rock hoppersx10 and hold your plank, side planksx10 hold for a few seconds then recover.

Mosey down the Mt. for a Indian run around the track for 3/4 lap, arrive at the stairs

count off by 2’s

1s perform Quadraphillia on the hill

2s start at bottom of the steps perform calf raises. start at first step with one rep, then add one rep with each step until all Pax reach the top. (crowd pleaser) 29 steps= 435 total calve raises.  could be wrong, check my math and let me know…

Rinse and repeat.

Mosey back to the Basket ball court for some Mary in the Middle

  • Great job by the men who posted and for those that didn’t we pray for your souls. Just kidding.  Truly it is hard to post on a Miserable morning.  But when I muster up the intestinal fortitude I think I get a little bit more out of it,  that is to defy that inner voice that tells me to go back to the fartsack.
  • today we concentrated on pounding groups of muscles for a little longer than is normally “comfortable”.  The men stepped up, stayed strong and supported each other through to the end.
  • Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.  Seize the Day and Glorify him who gives you strength.  Don’t let the burdens of the past cripple you from performing your mission today.

  1. First Friday Fathers is 7am tomorrow! 30 minute workout. My mistake in the announcements this morning. My quads and calves were screaming so loud I could not think! Hope to see a good crowd tomorrow at TP.
