Day: February 16, 2021

Mostly respect

6 HIM posted for a nice mosey to Martha’s and back. Good to see Whoopee back on the best side of Robinwood road on Thursdays. I did feel sorry for JJ having to run with all the old men.

Prayers go out to those on IR especially Roscoe and Stroganoff.  Breaker and SA on the mend,  and for all those dealing with stress of pandemic.

Simple Plan

A lovely afternoon at Midoriyama after a few days of rain. Time to start but Blart comes in hot so we Moroccan Night Club until he gets to the circle. Pledge. Then a surprise to everyone who knows my use of burpees is minimal at best…. a Slaughter Starter, 20 burpees!
Mosey out to the far soccer field parking lot on the left side near the rest rooms. Due to my bout of Covid back in November/December, my breathing has yet to recover fully so I requested some much needed help counting the exercises as follows.
20 Merkins in cadence (yes I said in cadence) called by Form Police award winner Sister Act.
20 LBC’s in cadence called by Best Mumblechatterer and well on his way to Bat Flipper status, Freight.
20 Low Slow Squats called by our favorite seaman, I mean airman, Slaw. I was glad no 2.0’s were there to see Slaw’s squats. It is quite a sight. There’s a thrust at the, well never mind!
Mosey around that parking lot to the parking lot near the playground. Repeat the exercises as before. 20/20/20.
Mosey down the road and to the picnic shelter. Repeat exercises. 20/20/20.
Mosey down (Freight’s) pier hill and then back up the new sidewalk. Repeat exercises. 20/20/20.
Mosey across the road to the cul de sac. Repeat exercises. 20/20/20.
Mosey around the river loop a little past half way. Repeat exercises. 20/20/20.
Mosey back to the road to wait for the six. Then back to the flag.
My watch read about 2.4 miles and 120 merkins, LBC’s and Low Slow Squats IN CADENCE.
I said a word about relying on my guys to help me count when I couldn’t and how we all should post to get better but also to be there for other men. Nice work by all!
