Due to 99% humidity everyone was sweating just from opening their car door.
We started on time – mosey to the middle school parking lot for W.O.R. – SSH (SourPatch helped me lead these), copperhead squats, ssslllooowww weedpickers, sungods, Michael Phelps.
1.) Divided into two teams. Each team had a set of cones spead around the parking lot that concealed tiles with a prescribed excerscise on them. 12 tiles for each team. Each team had differing, yet equitable excercises and reps both teams had to do a lap around the middle school and a sprint to the flag and back. I didn’t see a lot of “Sprinting” going on….. one tile was “ask your opponent” Team 2 was cool and sent them 30 J-Lo’s……Team 1 was lame and sent us 20 burpees.
2.) Each team gathered all excercise tiles and took them to the loading dock to figure out the scrambled 12 letter word. Geek Squad de-“deuced” that their word was CONSTIPATION almost instantly and so we only had to do one rep of running and climbing the loading dock. Team 2’s word was PERSPIRATION which was appropriate since we were all leaving a trail as if we were dragging a garden hose around.
3.) We gathered the cones into soft rubbery coupons and humped them up the stairs to the next station. The “calorie step-up”. The group was presented with six pictures of varying food and drink and had to put them in order of energy content per 100g serving. Wrong order meant a run down and back up the stairs. SourPatch referreed this one and again the synapses were firing for the group and they only needed two attemps – it was the lamb kidney that thew them off (as usual).
4.) Split back into two teams to play “Hungry Hungry Hippos” with bins and 50+ golf balls. Hippos had to bear crawl, crab walk, or duck squat to the center bin and retrieve as many balls as possible for their team bin. Winning team got to send losing team an excecise. Lax rules on the first round meant pockets full of balls and team 2 came out on top and sent team 1 their 20 burpees back. Team 1 won the second round and sent us some hand-release merkins but alas…the clock ran out! (This one would be really fun with a large group of PAX and I had a variation ready that I did not employ that would make it even better next time)
C.O.T.- Viceroy asked for prayers for less anxiety during these strange times; Brad Pitt asked for safe travels for his M. coming back from Mississippi; SourPatch asked for prayers for his Papa who is having hand problems.
Coffeteria and beer-eteria followed with most of the mumblechatter provided by SourPatch who made sure we were aware that cows are bad for the environment since they fart so much nicotine……
