The Q was kind of a jerk. So….many….merkins…..
We warmed up in the typical manner with a slow mosey, SSHs, weedpickers (yea!), copperhead merkins, and Sun gods (in cadence) to get those shoulders all limbered up.
In the interest of March Merkin Madness, we did a series of 4 exercises capped off with a 20 merkins/derkins at the conclusion of each set. Each set was followed by a 1/4 mile lap. We nearly made it through this routine twice, before the Q was too merkin’d out to continue. Then it got worse. Inspired by Cookies N’ Cream’s example, the PAX proceed to do a set of 11s with burpees at one end and…..more burpees at the other end. During the second round, the guy next to the Q started snarling “Chubbs is my enemy” with every burpee.
It was fun for all. And we did more than 3400 merkins as a group this morning (yep, we counted). How’s THAT for madness.
ANNOUCEMENTS: Ice-T was evidently fired as site Q and gave the flag to the new site Q, Roscoe P. This was greeted with a cautious optimism about the future of THD. (In reality, Ice-T has done a fantastic job. When you have to manage the questionable attitudes of a group the size of THD, it requires a lot of patience. And coffee.)
Prayer requests: Continued prayers for Izzy. Gratitude for the continued healing of Hustler’s friends.
