It always SEEMS like a good idea.
Number of Pax: 7
Pax Names: Captain Kangaroo, Baker's Dozen, Sweatervest, Layup, Water Boy, Wham-O, Midler
Warm-O-Rama: After a recon walk with the pup to discover newness in the AO, the unrecognized vehicles started rolling in. Were we in trouble? I swear I'll clean it up later...oh, its because the Five Hunnert PAX have been bringing out all kinds of FNGs so it was like a launch! This will be their first QIC with YHC, so there was a need to impress. Mosey over to the softball field for a little mood lighting and get some warm up in. YHC was moved by the spirit of new faces and took his shot at the disclaimer (not my best).
Sun gods and Michael Phelps OYO
The Thang: After a short mosey to the bottom of the hill the PAX learned about a Q YHC has been cooking up for a while. Also after participating, YHC needs to stop getting Q ideas from reading Happy Jack Backblasts. Burpicides! But since we are a PAX, we stayed together in various ways. At each fire hydrant along the fire lane, PAX adds one burpee while running suicides. 1 burpee to start, run to next hydrant, 2 burpees, back to start, three burpees...on and on until done.
To keep the PAX together folks could make a choice. Double back to sweep up, hold plank until PAX was ready, or do some mary OYO. This worked pretty well as speedy PAX could double back or get extra work. There was one session of 30 lbcs in the middle, and we got to number 13 on Burpees (no idea the mileage because while we all have tracking watches, no one set it). That's a total of 91 burpees.
Sufficiently smoked, YHC decided to introduce a new exercise to the Five Hunnert, the wheel of merkin. Rotation of four merkins with both hands on curb, left hand on curb, derkin with feet on curb, right hand on curb. PAX did four wheels, bear crawled across the lot, 4 more wheels, bear crawl back.
Still time! PAX gathered for mary and did 20 crunchy frogs with a ten second hold in the middle, 10 J-los, and 20 Dolly Partons. Time was called.
COT: Growruck is a good opportunity for all of us, and it would be neat to get a Five Hunnert contingent there. We are also getting close to numbers for a shirt order as all the PAX seem locked in. YHC will explore what this takes, or if we can piggy back with some Cherokee folk. Praise for Midler's wife landing a job, and continued prayers for Baker's Dozen's M and YHC M as they face health issues.
Naked Man Moleskin: TClaps to Water Boy. Dude did not stop moving even though he really really wanted to. Threw in burpees when all thought Merlot was imminent. This PAX is strong and fast so YHC is going to have to continue to come up with challenging Qs to keep us getting stronger. Also Tclaps for layup, who YHC noticed was practicing jump shots at the top of the burpee. YHC likes that a lot, and next season layup will own the fourth quarter.
