I had not Q’d at the Gashouse in quite a while and jumped at the chance when Linus called for some Q help in October.

A good crowd gathered for Painlab and the bootcamp.  One FNG showed (more to come on that).

We circled up for the disclaimer, pledge and a quick warm up of:

10 IC Imperial Walkers

10 IC Side Straddle Hops

Time to split up for the bootcamp and Painlab (Les Nesman with the Q there).

8 total took off to the track at Grier Middle School where so many of our region’s early workouts occurred.

The Thang

First up was some partner work with Dora:

Starting on the track straightaway, Partner 1 performs exercise while Partner 2 runs across the field to the straightway on the other side, performs 5 Monkey Humpers and runs back to Partner 1 and switches spots.

The Dora exercises included cumulative 100 Merkins, 200 Squats and 300 LBC’s.

Next on the list was 1/4 Mile four corners around the track as follows:

1st corner – 10 Merkins

2nd corner – 20 Squats

3rd corner – 30 CDD’s

4th corner – 40 FNG’s

We ran it back, literally as we nurred from corner to corner for the 2nd round of the same exercises in reverse.

YHC then mistakenly called a made up round of work that he called 1/4 Mile Merkin Lunges.  With same partners, Partner 1 performed AMRAP merkins while Partner 2 lunged around the track.  When Partner 1 completed a set of merkins, he ran to catch up with Partner 2 to start his set of lunges.  The original plan for this was to go a full lap…….YHC omaha’d this to a half lap and it was plenty.

Finally had to throw in a few Wolfpack Grinder laps as follows:

10 IC Squats – Run Half Lap – 50 Freddy Mercury’s

Rinse Repeat for another half lap

Next round:  10 IC Squats – Run Half Lap – 25 CDD’s

Rinse Repeat for another half lap

Nearing 0800 so we moseyed back to the Schiele for some Mary that included Flutter Kicks and Dying Cockroaches.

During the COT we each shared a praise or prayer.  I appreciate everyone sharing.

The naming of the FNG became a challenge due to his comment somehow related to “Big Gun”.  I actually do not remember the context of the comment but that led to many names suggested including “Pew Pew”.  I fought it valiantly but eventually succumbed to the time and pressure and our newest recruit was tagged with “Pew Pew”.  Welcome.

Good work men.  It was great to get out and Q the Gashouse Bootcamp again.

Until the next one.  Aye!!
