Strong crowd of 15 men for beautiful fall weather with the park pretty much to ourselves. There were discussions about certain men’s choice of apparel and that’s one of those “Show to Know” kinda things so we will leave it there. We waited an extra 15 seconds for Asssh Pond, Sidecar and Floppy Disk to no avail. Great to see Pockets back at Midoriyama. Short Sale coming in hot so here we go.
SSH x 10 IC, Cotton Pickers x 10 IC, Squats x 10 IC, despite numerous attempts to undermine the Q’s count, we persevered, except we may have done 11 or 12 squats.
Mosey to the large soccer field near the dog park. Now that Roadie has become a runner, we all tried to keep up with him but it wasn’t easy.
Line up on the end line, run a quarter of the field, 25 Merkins, nur back to the end line.
Run to the mid field line, 25 Squats, nur back.
Run three quarters of the field, 25 Mountain Climbers, nur back.
Run the entire field, 25 SSH, nur back. Maybe a little too much nur in that one.
Mosey to the playground
5 Pullups, 10 Derkins, 3 Sets
Mosey to the Picnic Shelter at this time in the dark gloom.
Circle Up for Fives
Fresh mulch smell was in the air as we began. 5 reps of each of these using full size blocks courtesy of Slaw’s mancave.
5 each of Merkins, LBC’s, Block Curls, On Your Six Block Chest Presses, SSH (No blocks), Squats with Blocks and Overhead Presses, Burpees/Blockees, then run a long lap around the 2 parking lots and back down the entry road. 3 Sets. With a few minutes remaining, Q made a tragic mistake of relinquishing the counting duties to Slaw for Curls. Not sure how many but more than 30 as I recall. Still reeling from the curls, another mistake letting Tool Time call the On Your Six Chest Presses with Blocks and I got woozy around 50 or so and almost lost a tooth but I think we stopped at 75. Ouch! There was a phrase used, not by YHC, to help our muscle definition during this exercise that is NSFW, something like “Squeeze Those …….!” Show to Know! Canteen then commented that he was through with his warm up!
Mosey back to the flag.
22 for the Vets called by Slaw since Oompa wasn’t there.
I recalled a verse Hebrews 10:25 that says something like, “Don’t forsake the assembling of ourselves together as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” I related how I was brought up by my mother and I really believe one of the best things she ever did for me as a child was take me to church. I don’t believe I would be half the man, father, husband, brother or friend I am today without that important step in my life so I encouraged all of the Pax to find a church for their family to grow in especially if you have kids. I believe strongly that everyone would be blessed by going to church.

We ran 2.7 miles (6 miles if we had MW’s old watch) and had over 400 reps of various activities. It is a pleasure to lead such a great group. I appreciate the big crowd and everyone pushing and helping everyone else in the group. You guys are a big inspiration to me and keep pushing that rock!
