7 HIMs showed up on a gloomy and rainy morning to join me and push themselves at The Goat.

As the clock hit 5:30 we moseyed down to the gazebo… as there were no FNGs and I’m an idiot, I forgot to do the disclaimer (does that qualify as a late disclaimer?).

After this we went ahead and got The Pledge in.



6×6 @ 30×15

The plan was to do six sets of six exercises with a run around the block between each set.  Each exercise was 30 seconds AMRAP with 15 seconds in between to transition to the next exercise.  With the likelihood of rain, and possibly heavy at times, the run was deleted… sort of.  The exercises were LBCs, Jump Squats, Merkins, American Hammers (Hammer Time!), Lunges and CDDs.  The idea was two exercises for each of core, legs and arms.  At the end of the third set the rain had let up a bit and I inquired the PAX for their opinion on whether we should take a lap.  Someone running by heard my inquiry and replied, “It’s not that bad!”  So we took a lap.  After the lap with three sets down and three to go I restarted the timer and in the middle of the jump squats the tablet decided to reboot!  The PAX were excited about the opportunity to finish out the next 25 minutes with jump squats!  ALWAYS have a backup plan!  I threw the tablet to the side and started up the workout timer on my phone, but we did get a bonus set of LBCs and jump squats.

With the sixth set completed we finished up with some Mary.  The caller had the choice of running around the block, or staying in the shelter and doing 50 SSH while the rest did their called exercise.  Called exercises were Crunchy Frogs, Flutter Kicks, Freddie Mercurys and Squat Jacks…  TIME!
