It occurred to me that the week got away from me and I didn’t post a backblast for my Q on 1/5 at the Schiele. So here you go.
Was awake at 4, outta bed at 4:30, ready to roll at 5:30, got almost to the workout and realized I forgot my back brace. I would be a lousy Q if I couldn’t move so I turned back. Messaged Roadie and Rudolph that I was running behind and to start the warm up, I’d pull in late. Arrived just at the end of the warm up to see a very large crowd, 24 + myself. Guess Roadie’s milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. Did another disclaimer, said “anyone wanting to boot camp, follow me” and started to mosey to the flag pole. Arrived at the flag pole and turned around to see only 5 followed me! “How do we play ultimate Frisbee with only (counting on my fingers, 1 2 3 4 5 6) 3 on 3!?” We made it work. Said the pledge, moseyed to Gardner park.
Found a hill, did Dora 1-2-3 (still counting) and did 100 dips on picnic tables, 200 merkins (that hurt) and 300 squats. Moseyed to the track and out to the soccer field. Set up some cones for some form some sort of keep-away, monkey in the middle game I made up in my mind standing on the aisle in Dicks looking at plastic curvy balls for teaching kids how to hit a curve ball. 2 pax on the outside, one man in the middle. 2 on the outside throw the ball back and forth. If it hits the ground the dropper does a burpee. If the guy in the middle catches it, both do a burpee and the monkey in the middle switches with the guy who threw it. Kinda fun for about 15 minutes but lost it’s excitement pretty fast.
Alligator walk Indian run: Meander to the track, alligator walk in a line (peter parker/ bear crawl “left, right, merkin” and repeat). Guy in the back runs to the front. did this for 2 runs.
Returned to the field for ultimate Frisbee. If the Frisbee hit the ground or changed possessions, do a burpee.
Mosey back to start, some Mary, named an FNG Daisy.
Strong work by Hipaa for running the Disney Half. You’re half the man you used to be (physically) but twice the man in spirit. DFQ. Strong work to Cheese head for beating down the sad clown. DFQ. Support Tool Time on the Chimbote mission trip. Collected $100 by passing the hat. Hope more AO’s will do the same in the coming weeks.
YHC will be having back surgery in Feb and I’m not sure what the future holds. But I plan to kick complacency’s butt. No matter what happens I will live with purpose. Honored to lead, embarrassed to arrive late.
