9 PAX gathered in the soggy gloom under the awning near the gym in the Etowah High School parking lot. 65 degrees and wet. The nine followed the QIC in a brief mosey back to where they started, and the following transpired:
Imperial Walker x10
Weed Pickers x 5 (nice and slow, like the Good Lord intended)
Sungods – OYO
Michael Phelps – OYO
Then the group took a three-step walk to back under the awning, where they found a repreive from the soaking, and a board of pain detailing what the next 35+ minutes would entail.
Merkins. All the merkins.
Utilizing a tabata timer, the group did three rounds of 10 exercises. Each exercise for one minute, followed by a 20 second reset between exercises. At the end of each round, there was an additional 1:20 rest period. Each round of nine exercises contained five different iterations of the merkin. And now, onto the complaining…
Big Boy Situps
…the timer went off after the rest following decline merkins. Timed well enough. Not perfectly, but good enough for a free workout. Didn’t make it to six inches. Brad Pitt was disappointed. He didn’t say it. But you could tell.
Prayers for Sharapova and his M (Amy). Prayers for Snowflake and Chancellor as they confront various personal and professional developments. Praise for Bradybunch as he continues to grow with his older 2.0s.
Oh, and I can’t feel my shoulders. Thanks, Merkin May.
