Goat Island itself is a great venue for a boot camp, and usually the weinke is created with the expectation of the gates being open. However, this morning the gates were locked, causing YHC to improvise. So improvise we did.
Warm up: SSH, IW, toy soldiers, and some slow Don Qs, all IC. Start a mosey, and begin the task of adjusting the weinke. Turn left (instead of right), and head up the short hill to front street. YHC sees a nice long straightaway and calls for a karaoke. After a couple hundred yards, flap jack and karaoke back. Now the real improvisation begins as the island was going to provide a nice area for my 12 days til Xmas thang. Think YHC, think… where to lead the pax for this gift… tennis court area down the street!! So we mosey to the courts.
YHCs version of the 12 days of Xmas will start with 12 reps followed by a run, then 12 reps/11 reps/run, 12/11/10/run…
12 merkins, 11 squats, 10 CDDs, 9 monkey humpers, 8 single leg calf raises, 7 flutter crunches, 6 big boy sit ups, 5 diamond merkins, 4 burpees, 3 Bobby Hurley’s, 2 standing broad jumps, and a final run across the parking lot.
The train came through, so 5 burpees.
Mosey back to downtown, stop at the gazebo for some core Mary, pax called. Time was called, took the super short mosey back to the start.
Pledge and COT
Announcements: Quichemas on the 15th, 12 days til Christmas, Boudin’s Mom’s birthday -learned of this because it is also Taylor Swift’s birthday (you see, YHC has a 13 yo daughter who knows this stuff).
