After being Voluntold that I was the Q today, I decided to go to my fun bag and recycle an old beat down that nobody liked.  However, I think today’s pax had a different perspective than the last group.  Perhaps it was my music choice and the fact that we all got to stay together, we didn’t have to count, and Dig-Em and Lizard King reunited their love for each other as the talked from the start of the Warm-o-rama to the end.  But alas, I am getting ahead of myself.

It all began with Happy E coming down with a sinus infection.  (Sorry brother!  I hope you feel better soon!).  Vanilli, mentioned that I would love to Q this morning and I didn’t want to shy away from the challenge.

I was 10 minutes for my own pre-run and ran into Detention with his faithful companion, Oso.  The two of them were crushing it until I came along and slowed them down.

At my 5:30 am, we started our mosey around the parking lot and then went into the 5 Core Principles.  Today was my lucky day as we had an FNG join us as a result of my invitation.  Yes! Another sad clown rescued into the gloom with all of jokers!


We did the usual suspects with a twist: SSH, Hillbillies, Weed Pickers and Merkins – on my down, and then you say up.  Fortunately, some were smart enough to count for us.  🙂

The Thang:

The Thang this morning was a Tabata Work out.  5 Sets of exercises for 45 seconds with a 15 second rest.  After 5 sets, we ran to the wall and back.  The exercises were as follows:

American Hammers, Nipple Scraping Merkins (Inclined Merkins), Gas Pumps, E2K’s, Lunges.

Burpees, Overhead Press with a coupon, Squats w/ coupon, Merkins, Sweet Angels (I think that is supposed to be Sweat Angels…these are like snow angels, but you have to keep your feet and hands 6 inches off the ground).

American Hammers, Derkins, Monkey Humpers, E2K, Lunges

Then we ran to the wall where we did a wall sit for 30 seconds and Balls to the Wall for 30 seconds.

Then we ran back and finished out with some Mary – American Hammers, Leg Lifts, Flutter Kicks, Freddie Mercuries and then time expired.


We concluded with our Circle of Trust.  Gut Check was our 6 Man.  He asked for prayers for his foot (Plantar Fasciitis) and for he and his wife as their oldest goes off to college at KSU.  Also prayers for LK’s daughter and ex-wife.  We welcomed Fawlty Towers to our group and closed with prayers.
