As the PAX gathered Friday morning in the muggy gloom, an unnamed participant (it was WHOOPEE) suggested that instead of doing the workout this morning, it might be nice to just punt and have coffeeteria instead. Before the other 6 could be persuaded YHC figured we had better get started!

We started with the Pledge of Allegiance.

For our warm up we did the following…

SSH x20 IC
Low Slow Squats x20 IC
Toy Soldier (aka Horizontal Dying Cockroach, but without as much suck) x20 IC
Low Slow Don Quixote x 20 IC
Mericans x10 IC

All warmed up and ready to go, YHC took the PAX on a quick jog, stopping first at the car to pick up a larger than normal weinke. Actually a whiteboard, now formally known as the Wonkie. With lots of mumble chatter and references to Space Balls (I see your wonkie is as big as mine… ah yes, but does he know how to use it?).

The Thang…

To be completely transparent, I swiped this one from a recent CSPAN backblast. We continued our jog back to Main Ave and stopped at the Lieu de l’Art. With 12 exercises etched on the Wonkie, YHC explained we would complete the said exercises, then run up all levels of the parking deck, down the stairwell and circle back up at Lieu de l’Art and plank for the 6. (CSPANs version did a lap around the track instead – perhaps we’ll see this one again).

The following exercises were completed…

5 Burpees OYO
10 Mericans IC
20 Squats IC
50 Calf Raises OYO
40 Seal Jacks IC
20 Squats IC
10 Mericans IC
5 Burpees OYO

At some point passed half way YHC changed the course to go up stairs first, and return down the parking deck. As the clock was running down quickly, we ran back to the Pavilion to complete the last 2 rounds at exactly 0615. Everyone pushed each other. We completed 440 reps and 3.5 miles of running in 45 minutes.

Keep T-Square’s and Stroganoff’s families in your prayers. Pray for our police officers and pray for our country.

As always it was an honor to lead a great group of HIM.
