YHC saw an open slot on the Q sheet and wanted to get a jump on the Spearhead Challenge, it was a match made in heaven. Except for the responsible Site Q (Harp) tried to hijack the Q from me. When I returned back from my mile a day run prior to the beatdown Harp had a pie of kettlebells and cinder blocks waiting for us. YHC felt a little bad about telling him that I had signed up to Q, but that feeling didn’t stop me in any way. He did provide the music though, which made the rest of the morning suck less.
Number of Pax: 7
Pax Names: Harp, Lawdog, Goat Milk, Cousteau, Good Hands, Ma Bell, & Babyface
Warm-O-Rama: A quick lap around the parking lot then circle up for some SSH, Copper Head Squats, and Windmills before we headed to the concession stand for some fun.
The Thang: At the concession stand we partnered up and took on the board of pain. One partner started at the top, the other at the bottom, and we went to work getting stronger. Luckily the board of pain both starts and ends with 100 burpees, so neither man was cheated out of 100 burpees for the day. When each pairing met in the middle of the board we hustled back to the flag for a quick few exercises of Mary and then 6:15 arrived right on time.
COT: Praise for Lawdogs Grandfather-in-law who is a World War 2 survivor being celebrated in D.C.
Naked Man Moleskin: Ma Bell was quietly crushing the board of pain from the bottom up this morning. But everyone seems quiet when you have Lawdog around so he may have just been at a normal level of Mumble chatter. Either way, the dude was crushing it.
