VQ: You’re gonna hate it, but you’re gonna love it

  • Post Type: Backblast
  • When: 08/14/2019
  • AO: SnoBalls
  • QIC: Gump
  • FNG's: none
  • PAX: Easyrider, Stinky Bird, Gastone, Stroganoff, Outhouse, WattsUp


Pledge: done

Disclaimer: I’m not a professional, but I play on one TV

Warm Up: 10 Butt kicks (IC), 10 High Knees (IC), Lunge with a twist (down parking lot), Kareokas (down & back)

Mosey: Snoballs to Clavin’s Hill (that’s what I’m gonna call it from now on) Watch out for those walkers! At least they wore headlamps. (0.4 mi)

Something like 11s: Started with 11 modified Lt. Dans (with a Jiminiy Cricket) instead of a plain ole merken. Bear crawl up the hill, 10 modified Lt. Dans. Bear crawl down the hill (didn’t realize how hard that was going to be…) And so on. This killed all of us.

Mosey: Clavin’s Hill to the Playground. Dodge more night walkers. Surprise! There are climbing ropes next to the monkey bars! (0.3 mi)

Obstacle Fun: All Pax do step ups on benches while one by one each does the monkey bars and rope climb.

Mosey: Playground to this service road (0.4 mi)

More Obstacle Fun: Spear throw at road signs (is this considered vandalism?) All Pax in plank position while each Pax attempts a successful spear throw. For each miss +1 burpee. Proud to say that we only had to do 3 burpees.

Mosey: Service road back to Snoballs (0.2 mi) Indian run with spear (pass spear back to last Pax who runs it up to the front)

Mary: 10 LBCs (IC), 10 Starfish crunches (OYO), 10 Plank March (IC)

NOTE: Realized that I did NOT follow protocol in properly announcing exercises in cadence. I’ll get it right next time. If there is a next time…

Scripture: 1 Jn 3:18 … let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (Thank you HIMs for your great example in this. And strive to keep it up!)

Announcements: Rankin Lake this Sat 10-2, Charlotte Stair Climb in Sept, Sign up for Christmastown and JJ 5K

Prayer Requests: Kids going back to school, Island’s foot, Outhouse’s sister-in-law delivered a baby but is in NICU

Name-O-Rama: video

CoT: Stinky Bird closed us out
