Complete Q Fail

It all started when I forgot to post the BB for the Pub two weeks ago on Thursday, May 31. The next week (last week already) the PAX helped me remember who had posted the week before. Then I forgot to post the BB after last week’s workout, AND in the COT I had absent-mindedly usurped the Q from Stone Cold, who was good enough to answer my call to Q last week. (See his BB, posted promptly last Thursday!) Finally, at the Convergence last Saturday I had to listen to Freight go on for about three minutes about how important it is to post backblasts.

Well here it is! For the workout we ran.

Completely monkified and in need of a Stone,


The Birthday Theme

YHC had the Q and with my birthday just the day prior, I decided to come up with a theme for the new number. 38 is the key.

I got there a little early to plant the flag and shoot the breeze with Orangeman, who is just into anything fitness, whether biking, running (to and from the workouts), etc.

Pax roll in and we circle up for the pledge and disclaimer. I am not a big fan of a warmup, although I need to be, but we mosey to the courts to receive instruction. Count off by twos and partner up. There is an even number so it worked out.
P1 moseys to other end of court to do said number of exercise while P2 stays back and does LBCs. Switch so both partners do the exercise.

Round 1: Squats, CDDs, Flutter Kicks, SSH, Merkins x38
Round 2: Lunges (each leg counts), Moroccan Night Clubs, Heel Touches, High Knees, dum dum dum BURPEES!!!!! X38.

We set a record today for the number of LBCs done in a workout.

Mosey back to the start and circle up for some Mary. Boudin and Dolph called five burpees, Breaker Breaker called five more and then some more Moroccan night clubs. Finish with the wave of merkins from five down.

White man come from the south and with them brought medicine and weapons much more modernized than my people. We taught them to hunt and fish and gather and later on took our land and put us on reservations to sell bead necklaces. Now once again we are with the white man and teaching them how to post and sweat like our ancestors. Good work white men from south. Chief is well pleased. We too welcome all fartsackers from north and south and east and west to gather and grow and sweat.
