… and apparently former ones still don’t.

It was good to see the Pax that showed up this morning, but especially Tater Hole (haven’t seen him out at Folsom in a while) and Mayor (who outside of a 2.0 workout and this past Saturday I don’t think I have ever seen him post to Folsom in the almost 2 years I have been out there).

It’s interesting though… I bet Mayor asked at least 4-5 times what we were doing. He then got really confused when I had to leave early and I asked Bedpan to take over to finish the workout. However, I told the men that we’d be doing a few different things and also there were some responses to questions that showed me he had heard what I had said. So, maybe it’s that Politicians listen… just they don’t always pay attention.

I am totally picking on Mayor. He wasn’t the only one not paying attention. I guess that’s what happens when you mumble chatter while the Q is talking and you can’t multi-task.


The Warm Up:

16 Gravel Pickers – in cadence (called 20, but then shortened to 16 to see if the Pax were awake and paying attention)
5 Flow Steps (or as I was calling them “Dark Knight Rises”) – each leg – in cadence
5 Turkish Getups – each side

The Thang:

Mosey to light post: 20 shoulder touches

Mosey to Vet Road (or somewhere in between): Add 5 burpees (or flying squirrels) to the 20 shoulder touches

Mosey to track fence: Add 20 Mountain Climbers to the burpees and shoulder taps

Mosey to Flag


Sorta Jacked Up:
20 SSH
15 Seal Jacks
15 Plank Jacks
15-ish Little Gumby’s in the Woods (aka Smurph Jacks)

(it seems I can’t squat very low and still get a SSH in and the Q’s form was questioned… I could feel it in my quads for sure, but started laughing and my cadence count got off (plus no one was counting at that point either – possibly from laughter.)

I was out of time at this point. I asked Bedpan to take over and have the Pax do Iron Hulks and some Mary – though, I don’t think he was listening. I did mention they could run to the Waffle House, as long as they actually ran there and back. He decided to go the opposite way, back towards the COT.

I saw they stopped along the way to do Monkey Humpers and Nolan Ryan’s as I was heading out.

Thanks men for allowing me to lead and trying a few new things. Hopefully it wasn’t too JV for the bat flippers. If you have some suggestions for something better just let me know. I actually take constructive criticism well (as long as it’s constructive) – probably a good thing with this group and their mumble chatter.

Until next time fellas, SYITG…
