We’ll Come Up with Something

So…..it was cold again.  My trusted Ford Explorer told me it was 22 degrees when I arrived and 19 degrees when we were leaving.  The moon was freaky bright….blue, blood moon or something going on with it.

As the PAX started to arrive I started to think about what we would do.  I really had no idea at the start of the warm up that went like this:


Imperial Walkers X 10 IC

The Pledge

The Thang (We’ll figure something out during the mosey)

We moseyed to Martha Rivers and headed for the far end of the parking lot……hey, let’s do some 22’s.  I haven’t done them in a while at this AO.

Merkins and Monkey Humpers

Run across parking lot – 20 Merkins – Run back to start – 2 Monkey Humpers

Run across parking lot – 18 Merkins – Run back to start – 4 Monkey Humpers

You get the count.  This was done OYO until the last set was 2 Merkins & 20 Monkey Humpers.

What now?

Let’s mosey down to the large soccer field for………………some 4 corners.

First round (OYO):

Run to 1st Corner – 20 Merkins

Run to next corner – 30 LBC’s

Run to next corner – 40 Squats

Run back to starting spot – 50 Flutter Kicks

That was fun.  Let’s do it again in reverse.

Run to 1st corner – 50 Flutter Kicks

Run to next corner – 40 Squats

Run to next corner – 30 LBC’s

Run back to starting spot – 20 Merkins

Still much time remaining.  I….must……do………work………in……….the………shelter.

I can’t help myself so we moseyed to the closest picnic shelter for some IC work:

Dips X 20

Step-Ups X 20

Derkins X 15

LBC’s X 20

Dips X 15

Step-Ups X 20

Derkins X 10

LBC’s X 20

Mosey back up the parking lot to one of the light poles for a quick round (except for Gastone and Spiderman) of Ring of Fire:

Circle up around the light pole and plank – each man does 5 merkins around the circle until all are complete.

Mosey back to Snoballs.

50 Flutter Kicks IC

5 Burpees (I swear I heard a train)

Announcements:  Flag football on Super Bowl Sunday (not me)

Prayer Requests

The Moleskin

Nice work men.  It was especially nice to see a few out I have not seen in a while such as Brown Streak.  Keep it up.

It was an honor to lead the group this morning as always.  I hope the work was worthy of the time spent.

Until the next one.  Aye.



Burpee mosey

Ssh x 25
Don Qs x 10
That was enough for the warm up. Time for some mosey to the first light pole in the parking lot. 5 burpees , mosey to the next pole 5 burpees. You get the picture what we are doing now. Started to hear some mumble chatter from the pax!! We finished those poles (5x 5) and some mosey to the first soccer field on the right.

Time for some Dora. Billy Madison showed up with his 2.0s and did the exercises iron man. The pax jumped in and helped him finish up his flutter kicks at the end. Way to push Billy!!
100 merkins
200 squats
300 flutter kicks.

Time for a mosey around the large soccer field and back to the next parking lot for some more light poles. While waiting on the six Blart called out for 10 Mike Tyson’s.

Now , back to the poles and burpees. I hear some more mumble chatter again. Once we finished up I was feeling the pain at this point. Had to take a small breather and do some wall sets with ring of fire and hip slappers.

Mosey back to the flag (which totaled 2 miles)and hit the bleachers for 25 step ups each leg, 25 dips, 25 Derkins, 25 American hammers, 25 crunchy frogs, 10 more burpees which made for a total of 65, 25 each side Jane Fonda v something roll ups that Tool Time called out. Back to the flag to circle up with 22 merkins for the vets and the pledge. We named the new FNG. Welcome Birthright.

Prayers for all the guys on the injured list.
Everyone pushed hard. Thanks for the opportunity to lead you guys again. As always it’s a honor.
