It was kinda gloomy but still a nice morning.  Not very cold.  Still warm enough to get a good sweat on.

8 overcame the Monday blues to partake in the sharing of some fine work at The Sandlot.

There was a quick warm up of 10 Imperial Walkers; no FNG’s; the pledge.

The Thang

Mosey to the farthest point in the parking lot at Martha Rivers for some Merkin 55’s:

Similar to 11’s but the reps each round add up to 55 (instead of 11) and in the middle of each mosey across the parking lot, we dropped and did 8 Merkins.  Hence the name, Merkin 55’s.

The exercises included Flutter Kicks (counting right leg only) and Moroccan Night Clubs.  This took a while but was handled well by the PAX.  For those counting, that’s 275 ea of Flutter Kicks & Moroccan Night Clubs plus 160 merkins.

We then took a quick mosey around part of the parking lot back to where we started the 55’s.  Time for some 22’s.

Squats on one side of the parking lot with CDD’s on the other.  Well done again.

We headed back up the main road out of the park stopping 4 times for some Mary along the way:

LBC’s – 15 IC

Freddy Mercury’s – 15 IC

LBC’s – 20 IC

Freddy Mercury’s – 20 IC

Race back to Snoballs where Watts Up and Stinky Bird finished it off with some IC work of Crunchy Frogs and Jane Fonda’s.

Announcements:  Sparky’s kids school with an upcoming 5k; Christmas Party sometime in the next 12 months; Golf Tournament fundraiser from Buckshot and Young Life.

Several prayer requests.

This was my first Bootcamp Q in a while (I have done several running workouts and Q Source recently) and it was great to get back out there and lead one to start the week.  As usual, I was pushed by the entire group and felt great to start my week off in the gloom with a bunch of HIMs.  Thank you men.

Until the next one.  Aye!
