Who would come to the park at this time of morning?

  • When: 11/15/2017
  • QIC: Time-frame
  • PAX: Freight, Pizza Man, Spider-Man, Oompa Loompa (R), Clavin, Whoopee, Snowman, Hushpuppy, JJ, D-Fib, Time-Frame (YHC)

As I pulled into Snowballs at 5:25am, I was pleased to see a good group of PAX gathering and getting ready to push the rock for a bit.  Looks like the fartsack epidemic from Monday has been cured and the PAX seemed well rested and ready for some movement.  5:30 and let’s go!



emperial walkers x 10

goofballs x 20


Da Thang:

Long mosey to back of lower middle soccer field (along the way I was asked for an eta on arrival).  I could feel the love already.   At some point we passed a gentleman walking in the park and Freight asked himself “who would come walk in the park at this time of morning?  Oh yea, us.”

LBC’s x 50

Short mosey to risers for dips x 20ish (the count was a bit off, my bad)

Mosey to front right of same soccer field;

Squats x 20

Merkins x 20

Mosey to front left of same soccer field (we are making our way around the track;

Squats x 20

Mountain climbers x 20 (count right foot except D-fib because that’s how awesome he is)

Repeat da entire thang….adding 10 Dirkins after the LBC’s and before the dips

Third time around the PAX was calling for something different so we did 51 LBC’s

we were going to add step up but the risers were wet with dew making them slippery so we Omaha’d them for the time being.  Everything else was the same except we counted the left foot for the mountain climbers.  We’re getting crazy now!  Hope your happy D-fib.

4th and final time around we did 49 LBC’s due to my OCD to keep the numbers even.  Thank you Freight  for noticing.

Dirkins x 10

Dips x 20

Mosey to the shelter;

Step Ups x 30  (Pizza Man was jumping with both feet up on high surface of picnic tables for entire set.  I found it to be very athletic).

Meander to parking lot for abs;

LBC’s x 50

Flutter kicks (variable speeds) x 40

Box cutters x 30

Micheal Phelps x 20

Mosey back to Snowballs

Squats x 20

Pizza Man led in 22 Merkins for the Vets.  Thank you for doing that.

Times up!
