There were 11 HIM who showed in the gloom at Martha’s House this morning. No disrespect but apparently I’m an old curmudgeon and it’ll always be Martha’s to me. Memories. Here’s what happened…


Warmup – Goofballs, Don Quixote’s, R over L

Pledge of Allegiance

Mosey to the center part of the baseball fields for The Thang

Birthday Number Thing

In recognition of my 2.0 Queso’s 16th birthday yesterday and my 2.2 Allie’s birthday tomorrow, I decided to do some stuff with their birthdates.

Karaoke out the left spoke and at the end do 18 merkins (Queso’s birth day is the 18th). Plank for the 6 then do 3 burpees (I have 3 kids).

Nur up the middle spoke and do 20 squats (Allie’s birthdate is the 20th). Plank for the 6 and the do 3 burpees.

Karaoke out the other spoke and do 24 LBSs (Feta’s birthdate is the 24th). Plank for the 6 then bear crawl around the middle building.

Repeato this 3 times. Bonus time was when we got to reminisce about the classic 80’s cartoon “Pole Position” AND single the unforgetable theme song. Good times! There were a couple lessons during this Thang.

  1. Don’t get so excited that you try to “thread the needle” between PAX when you’re karaokeing. This will almost never end well, just like today. Luckily, the only casualty was the temporary loss of a shoe.
  2. When everyone is going to the end point of a section to do an exercise, don’t be the guy who stops really short and makes everyone jump over or fall on top of them. Go a little further and help your brother out that way.

Mosey up the middle spoke for the next routine – 12’s

We made it 12’s instead of 11’s because dear Allie turns 12 tomorrow and, well, I’m Sargento. At one end do 11 V-Ups, at the other end do 1 WWI sit up. We made it about halfway before having to mosey back to the start due to time.

Thanks for letting me lead today men. Hope you enjoyed the push!
