Saturday 9/16 kicked off my first official Gashouse QIC weekend. This is also my first official backblast as I have found that whatever shortcomings I may have as a site Q I am even further substandard on BB posts. Maybe the experience this time will gain me the insight I need to continue these posts. We had a good turnout this weekend and I was fully impressed when I took 9 pax with me to lead on the bootcamp. I thought I lost one early until I realized I had not counted myself, not sure I was even there anyway.
We started with a thorough disclaimer that eventually did not even convince me to follow my lead. I’m positive, but not sure that we started off with the following:
SSH: Cadence, 15 or 16?
Merkins: Cadence, 16?? Had to say, I should have stopped at 10 but man I felt good, that all ended about there, sigh….
LBC: 20 maybe in cadence
Squats: 20 in Cadence
Pledge at the small shovel flags
Break out to Bootcamp, Painlab on their own
4 Corners: Exercise, run to next corner on track repeat previous exercise and add the next. Rinso and Repeato
10 Flying Squirrels, 20 merkins, 30 squats, 40 scissor kicks
30 Dips / 10 Derkins = 40 total
Subtract / Add by 5 each side until you get to 10 Dips and 30 Derkins
(I was wiped out by this point and we had not reached 7:17 am)
Until I could get my math right nobody would start
Front of School:
5 PCMB’s (Prisoner Cell Merkin Burpees)
Plank, merk, right leg Peter Parker, merk, left leg PP, merk, standing position = 1
5 total or until you puke, at #4 I’m nauseous
Mosey to FPC awning:
Partner up, one up the hill the other down, 10 squats, back together for one Booyah merkin, rinse and repeat until 1 squat and 10 merkins. It took longer for me to explain the exercise than for us to perform.
About 5 minutes of restful but impactful Mary, led by various members of the Pax.
Around to the front circle of the church where the landscaper’s had my claimed spot occupied. I figured it was better to let them finish their work unobstructed as viewing Carolina DD’s the wrong way can be hazardous to health so I modified and used the full empty parking lot, 24/7 permit was still required. Here we did a set of A.L.A.R.M.S, modified Bombs of some sort. Arms, Legs, Abs, Run, Exercise, Exercise.
20 each: Carolina Dry Dock, Lunge, LBC, Run (the rectangle), Merkin, think we left one off.
This left us with enough time to knock out 10 Mike Tyson’s.
Moseyed back to the Schiele where Short Sale had this look suggesting, “where have you been” even as I finished my last step at the Schiele with my phone proudly displaying 8:00 time as the sweet sound chimes of the FPC bell tower sang.
Finisho, right on time.
My first Q as Gashouse QIC. Awkward coverage of announcements and concerns by YHC but we got through it. Monk with the Gashouse Bootcamp Q on 6/23, Whoopee has 6/30, and Clavin has 7/7 (although I do want to confirm that is Bootcamp and not Painlab).
Much to report here:
Kayaking at Cramerton to have already taken place by the time this has posted
Hike next Saturday in Boone / Meet at Schiele at 6:30 a.m.
Billy Madison is moving to St. Augustine Florida this coming Thursday. He may need some help moving and he will communicate this by Twitter. You can catch a Billy Madison beatdown Tuesday at Midoriyama and Wednesday at Snoballs. We wish you the best of luck Madison.
