• When: 4/18/16
  • QIC: Stroganoff
  • PAX: Whoopee, Outhouse, Anthrax, Fresh Prince, Radar, Stroganoff

6 PAX gathered in the gloom, overcame the fartsack urge and emerged victorious on this first day of the week, April 18th. YHC admitted early that this would be my first Q where I really did not put anything on paper and did not really think about the workout specifics until I realized I would not be alone (so the specifics and rep counts may not be entirely accurate). 4 PAX were in attendance when the warm up started with Anthrax coming in hot at about the 3rd warm up exercise.

We dispensed with protocol and performed The Pledge before the warm up.

The Warm Up – In Cadence

SSH X 14 (Why 14?)
Imperial Walkers X 14
Merkins X 14
LBC’s X 19 (I think)

The Thang

We started with a run/mosey around the back of the school and made the loop up to the traffic circle and down to the bottom of the hill at the lower entrance to the school. At this point we stopped for a couple quick exercises in cadence:

Merkins X 14
LBC’s X 21 (?)

As we finished up, someone spotted a hazy figure sprinting toward us and for a moment I considered telling someone else to rush him but low and behold it was Radar joining us, I’m sure he was already on mile 4 of his morning run.

The next section was retracing the route we had just come from with an average mosey pace all the way back around the school to the concrete ‘knobs’ near the main side entrance. On the way, Whoopee struck up a conversation with someone in a parked car. After a quick run recovery moment we continued with some in cadence work:

Merkins X 14
LBC’s X 23 (?)
Derkins X 14
Flutter Kicks X 19 (?)

The third run section led us from the exercise station toward the football field, down the sidewalk and then toward the lower entrance. As we arrived at the lower entrance, I may have heard some SV moaning about not stopping there but I could be mistaken. The run continued up our ‘favorite Derecho hill’ to the traffic circle and the glorious artwork there for another exercise station in cadence:

Merkins X 14
LBC’s X 19 (?)

The final running leg (well almost) took us back toward the school where we avoided a moving school bus, worked our way around the back of the school again and back to the ‘concrete knobs’ for our last exercise station with the following in cadence work:

Merkins X 14
LBC’s X 23 (?)
Derkins X 14
Flutter Kicks X 31

There was no more time for any recovery and we made the final sprint back to the vehicle assembly area.

In all, we covered close to 3 miles with each section in the 3/4 mile range. Sorry for the lack of consistency with the reps but that’s what you get from a contractor with no plans.

We finished off with some announcements and prayer requests:

Burpee-a-thon is coming up soon – check in with The Mayor on that one.
YHC attempted an announcement for Flinstone concerning an education opportunity he has coming up but I totally botched the explanation. My sincere apologies to Flinstone.

Finished with the name-o-rama and prayer.

Again, it was my honor to lead another workout and you guys pushed me as always to be better today than I was yesterday.

Until the next one.

Aye!
