Gastone led all pax with SSH then pledge as a pax member questioned where the disclaimer was as an FNG was present … backtrack to a brief disclaimer heavy on the please don’t sue me because this is all free and all the other ……
IW in cadence then 10 Diamond Merkins and mosey to light Poles down street for squats more diamonds and then it’s turned over to ….. the new site Q —— Clavin
I begin with IW IC 15 count …..
Nearly two years ago Gastone called on me at this Lightpole for an exercise after my posting only 4-5 times ….. this was the exercise and it was supposed to be IC and oh my God I boogered it up so bad ….I believe I may have wet myself even … jk
So after short ( very short ) hand off we mosey back to start and beyond ….. mosey to barricades outside park , assemble count off ( to make sure we don’t lose anyone ) and 10 Big Boys in honor of the other site Q from Monday workouts ( mostly because he was complaining of a hangnail on his left big toe that was aggravating him during our mosey ).
Now into the park with a quick fake out to the shelter … not today … soccer fields our the next stop on the Magical Mystery Tour to honor Gastone !!
Line up face field and pax will run to 25 yd line for merkins and back to start then rush to mid field and flutters counting one side back to start and over to 75 yd line for lbcs back again and run to other side for squats and back all to the magic number 33. I now ask if any can guess why that number , JK 2 comes up with an answer about that being one third of a number or something and Turtleman starts multiplying 4 x 33 dividing 1/4 1/2 and/ or 100%….
the answer was simply that Gastone has been site q of Marthas Black Knight balls of Sno for 33 months.
Mosey again this time to little hill edge of woods for diamonds/ NUR
Then monkey humpers/ nur
Finally Gorilla humpers and Turtleman asks if a monkey can do a gorilla humper …. I say an idiot is doing just that …… Gastone said that Turtleman must be that idiot ……
Gastone now looks ready to NUR ….. so I tell him … Nope! We’re done here …. mosey to split trees on path Gastone used for 11’s in the summer ….. we will only do a single burpee and run to pull up bars for Amrap pull ups … quickly realize pax will need activity while waiting …. plank… no squats …. Gump was on 40 or 50 when I modify to do either 10 or less and change us to lbcs while waiting.
Somewhere in here I explain how I love symbolism and have tried to insert much for today’s workout… initially I considered a charge or 2 up Gastone’s Hill but decided against as I felt the need for quiet on that street may preclude much mumblechatter and that was not fair!
So now we go into parking lot circle up …. glasses are so fogged up I call on Outhouse …. oops that’s Wet nuts … for a count off…. FAIL!
Circle up for s rapid fire merkin ring of fire SA starts us off each pax does 2 merkins … after 1 Merkin next in line begins … until back to me and repeato ….. then I call for 3 meekins each and a repeato and recover …. mosey to what Gump has titled Clavin Hill and added it on Strava or some other site …. not sure we do one burpee and bear crawl to top …. pax was so psyched I thought I heard a train and call 5 more burpees !!!! Mosey back to start and Wet Nuts is so excited because he realized that with 4 minutes to go we could honor Gastone with a Flutter kicks … so I voluntold him to lead us in the final exercise of the morn…. 40 !!! And time!! During this Defib asks for a moment for announcement and he needs to get to work …
Defib will be leading a Labor Day Murph at 7 …. Turtleman decides to NOT have a 5:30 workout that morning
Gastone next takes the floor to thank all for the support and love given him while site q and I lead us in a 3 count of hip hip hooray
I now inform all assembled of how I am excited for this opportunity and appreciate this. For the short term I won’t be actively seeking any Qs until sometime in October or November …. that is NOT to say I don’t wAnt any …. I do not want to hinder any pax seeking to Q a site that they’ve never done or another Hipaapalooza, Diggathon or anniversary, birthday birth of s child … passing of a kidney stone, bar mizvah, bat mizvah or whatever anyone has in mind !! Just ask !!
Lastly before the announcements ….. why Mathletes in the title? Well for starters before the workout I heard JK2 explaining his name being John and Kate plus 8 minus 6 ,,,,also the 33 all that ensued there and lastly the naming if our FNG ….. we set a worlds record naming him as one pax said before we even got to know him!!! He has 8 kids !! Someone called Ocho Cinco and I called for his pax felt …. sounded great. …. and funny… my M asked when I got home if anyone at the workout was capable of doing math or knew any Spanish …. well I took 3 years of French …. besides sometimes it’s better when we come up with something out of left field making you scratch your head ……. could’ve been worse ,,,, my M said we should’ve used Octomom!!!!
