Labyrinth 3/17 Get Busy!

The rain held off, WaterBoy wanted to be respectful of those running relays this weekend, so he put together a workout that didn’t require much running.

It went down like this:

The Pledge, then Warmup – Burpees, partnered high 5 pushups, butt-kickers… but then raise your arms overhead…  then wiggle fingers, while turning a circle!  All men willingly participated.

Ran over to Big Martha parking lot where the fun began.  3 sets of six exercises designed to tank the legs.  Each exercise starts at the top of a minute.  Air squats, single leg lunge (one side, then the other), side lunges (one side then the other), bridge ups.  The first time through, 50 seconds do the exercise, 10 seconds runs in place, or jumping jacks, or rest.  Next time through, 45 seconds on the exercise, 15 seconds of run in place, or jumping jacks, or rest, last time through 40 seconds with the same for the other 20 seconds.  18 minutes total, then 2 minutes of calf raises for burnout.

Mosey down toward the picnic tables, same pattern, but with only 5 exercises repeated 3 times.  Pushups, dips, hollow body crunch, flutters, and then LBCs.

Mosey back to Pelicans, COT, Name-o. Pray it out. Done.

Clavin found it too easy, so he carried a 145lb Atlas ball.  Folgers ran a full lap around Marthas in each of the 10 second, 15 second, and 20 off times, totaling 19 additional miles.  Watts Up mosey’d down and back on his hands and did the whole workout inverted on one arm.  Gastone … well… he talked, said something about ant bites.

Shooting Stars.

Warmup IC  emphasis on form. If the PAX had good form then they would have saw the shooting star! Some were doing bendovers instead of squats.  I haven’t seen one in a long time. It was cool!

Thank you for another chance to lead!


The last time YHC lead The Goat, it was a coldish (Tesla had on long sleeves), wet day.   Today seem like a rinse/repeat but with warmer temps.  Last time attendance totaled 3, luckily today we doubled that especially given the races this weekend / tapering.   YHC had prepared for the rainy day, although in hindsight, we could run normal.

Nonetheless, here is how it went.

No FNGs, so lets get to it…. Mosey to the gazebo.

Break out the deck of cards…

Hearts – SSH
Diamonds – Air Presses
Spades – Squats
Clubs – Big Boys

Non-Face Cards, do the number on the card
Face Cards = 20
Aces = 25 of all four exercises

Following the counts of BlackJack, when the total is 21 or more, take a lap around the square.

We continued until time was out.


Prayer Requests:

  • Nutria’s family with stomach bug
  • CPAP & Dirt – Job Search
  • Mortimer, P70 & P200 teams


  • Pillager’s Grandparents Birthday this week
  • Nutria’s Van problem covered under warranty

YHC took us out.


Thanks to all that attended.  It was an honor to lead.  Maybe next time we can have dry weather.

Watts Up Powering Down

No rain

Were they afraid of today’s Q as Waterboy stated ? Or the rain, which never materialized? Covid, numbers are down? Resting for the weekends brutal beating on the body with the P200? Or was it the fragrance of the fart sack?

No matter, two HIMS kept the fire burning and had a great time ! Until next time
