• When: 11/25/2018
  • QIC: Linus
  • PAX: Clavin, Madoff

YHC showed up at the Gashouse with just enough time to run a lap around the parking lot and set up the flag.  Clavin, who was doing merkins in the back of his truck patiently waiting for me was ready to go.  First thing I noticed was the early Pax who showed up at the break of 6 am to converge to Shelby.  Great show, glad we were well represented.

Well, it was mid forties and raining, at the tick (and I mean dead on 7:00) we skipped the warm up and headed straight to Grier Middle.  At the front of the school down the hallway wing is a set of awnings that literally winds down and behind the school all the way to the back last wing,   Total sq.footage ‘under cover’ has got to be 20,000 (well +/- 20,000) but who cares.   Small Pax, big under cover awnings, no rain?  You bet.  Here is how it went.

Warm Up:

SSH – 20 IC

Squats – 10 IC

LBC – 10 IC

Merkins – 10 IC

The Thang:

Theme, One Bourbon, One Shot, One Beer……ie’……….One Excercise, One Constant, One Ascending.

Top wing of Grier, 50 Moroccan Night Club, 10 Squats, 1 Burpee, mosey down to next wing.

50 Lunge (Exercise), 10 Squat (Constant), 2 Burpees (Ascending), mosey…..You get the point….

50 LBC/10 squat/3  burpee

50 SSH/10 squat/4 burpee, now have to mosey back to start

50 Merkin/10 squat/5 burpee

50 Calf Raise/10 squat/4 burpee (now to descending)

Yada, Yada, Yada……..50 WWI, 50 Goofballs, 50 CDD’s, 50 Rocky Balboa’s, 50 Flutters, 50 Mtn. Climbers, 50 Squats, there may have been more, who knows.

Rain stopped briefly for us to enjoy the outdoors a bit so we moseyed to FPC to finish some of the above.  Somewhere along the way we did a round of steps up to the Pad with some exercises up top.  Moseyed back to Schiele.

Announcements/Concerns:  Thoughts for all traveling and wishes for safe arrivals and safe returns.

Q fail, I did not bring my phone with me.  Upon return I noticed that Madoff had been running late (not due to his fault) and was trying to contact me.  Had I had my phone I may have picked him up.  Not to mention one Pax should always have a way of communication.  When we have 10-20 Pax I’ll bet nearly 100% of the time at least one has a phone.  But when it is only two or three Pax that percentage could drop to zero.  From now on YHC will always have a phone with me.  Refer back to the top and you notice that at the drop of 7 we bolted.  Almost no chance anybody would have found us moseying the halls of Grier in the dark.  My fault Madoff, I feel horrible.  But a chance for me to learn and grow and move forward to improve for the next round.   Here’s hoping Madoff got in a few miles searching for us however.

Until next time……Linus
