I had good intentions for a solid and respectable warmup, but as it got underway I quickly became bored and shortened the reps. I think I just need to be moving to feel like I am getting my money’s worth, maybe that’s it? Who knows? This is what I remember…Maybe it’s undiagnosed ADD? Maybe it’s short term memory loss? Maybe it’s short term memory loss? Maybe…
WU: SSH X 10, Squats X 10, LBCs X 20, Mtn Climbers X 5, Flutter kicks X 10, Imperial Walkers X 5, Merkins X 2 then get your butt up and mosey. Did a slow mosey around in a square with high knees, butt kickers, slide this way, slide that way then burpees X 10 OYO.
Mosey to the lower circle formally known as the lower case i (remember from Derecho???) for Burp and Merk (1 burpee with 1 Merkin on the burpee, 2nd burpee with 2 merkins on the burpee, escalator up to 8th burpee with 8 merkins). This was 1 for each of the pax present. And then the running began….we moseyed up the hill for modified 11’s. Mosey up the hill for 10 reps of flutter kicks, back down for 1 LBC (sorry Sargento, I don’t consider Don Quixote or grass pickers to be an exercise). We adjusted reps by 2 each trip (longer run than I had planned). Lot of encouraging each other-great teamwork. Mayor, after running with you at the CSAUP, I wanted to help you with your goal to get better with the cardio-ask and you shall receive. This was tough for me and though I don’t consider myself a “runner” I was adequately prepared for BRR not too long ago. Hills are some of the toughest things for me to do on my own and I have learned from others it is best to do in groups to stay motivated. I spent the majority of time chasing 4-5 others up that #$%@!!! hill. I wanted to cut it short but didn’t want to let the others down just a little bit more so we stuck it out and finished what we started.
Somewhere along the way around the 3rd trip up we heard the wind howl? a motorcycle go by? or was it a train??? 10 Burpees OYO-nice work pointing out the train passing by whoever that was (?Sargento?). Next we got a quick count off to recover then moseyed up to the wall by the weight room but had to stop and recover our legs from the mosey with 50 squats-was really hoping for some mumble chatter but all I heard was crickets and a few grunts….maybe 75 next time….
We made it to the wall for some hip slappers with 3 sets of 10 then headed back for the pledge and some time with Mary-everyone got a chance to lead with 10 reps of something-don’t remember all of them but I know there were Sandy V, dying cockroach, WW2 setups, Freddie Mercury, LBC, flutter kicks, Mtn Climbers-missing 1 of them.
Was really happy to be there this am. Like we talked about at the CSAUP this weekend, I am not sure what I would be doing without F3, but I know a lot of things would be different. I suspect my Sandy V would be at least size adult XXL instead of whatever smaller size it happens to be today (admittedly it does vary but gets smaller after I post for a workout).
Namorama, Prayers (Feelgood, we are here for you), and COT-Great work guys-thanks for coming out and pushing the rock.
Tiny Tank volunteered to Q next week so bring your A game next week.
