5 Bad MFer’s showed up at downtown this am. Yup, I said it. It’s true and you deserve the truth if you are reading this. We were some bad MFer’s this am. If you weren’t there, you missed out…..BIG TIME. It was great. The weather was perfect. The air was right….until Purple Haze made it not so….but that is ok because it’s a men’s workout. And men do things that are manly. And sometimes it is offensive. But that is ok. We are men and we can handle that.
We started with a disclaimer for SA-try to keep up with the old man. Today is my birthday and 51 years old is nothing to take lightly. I really think I am just hitting my prime if you want to know the truth. Pledge was next then we did a quick warmup with 5 SSH and 1 Burpee (5-1, get it? 5-1 because I am 51 today…..stay with me. We won’t go too fast).
We moseyed a short distance to the round parking lot ? West of the pavilion. Mosey 1 lap, 10 squats. Mosey 1 lap, 20 squats….then I remembered one of our (younger) pax has a bum knee so we Omaha’d to 31 squats for total of 51 squats and cut the mosey/run short. We moseyed over to the other side (East side) to find a nice wall……I then asked a younger pax this question: “What exercise would you like to do?” and he replied with a smile, “Hip Slappers, sir.” We I showed him my electronic weinke and wouldn’t you know it, there it was, “HIP SLAPPERS” for the next exercise. So we started with 10 OYO. Not enough for this old man so we did 10 IC. We did a few more and some were OYO and some were IC. Some were fast and some were slow (but the slow ones were generally ignored). We got to 51 with a few side eye looks from the younger pax-I could tell there was a little animosity towards me….Whatever, suck it britches. We started to mosey but then I thought again. We got about 15 feet and I called for some more hip slappers just for fun. Just to be clear, that was for my fun, not yours. Slaw was leading the pack so I ‘splained to him our destination was the wall. “THE WALL. As in McQuitter’s WALL?” asked the Slaw-bag. “Why yes, Slaw, that is the wall of which I am referring” said I. So we all moseyed to THE WALL. I have not been to the wall in a while so I had to look at the brick-Hazel and Richard McQuitter. AKA Dick McQuitter. (Insert jokes here-especially the long jokes)
At the wall, we did several sets of step up’s and Derkins for a total of 51 reps of each then moseyed to the parking deck for some mo’. At the deck we did LBC’s at the bottom and Mountain Climbers and Monkey Humpers at the top. The goal was 51 reps of all of these but who knows? I said one thing about the number of reps and did almost anything else. At the bottom we did some flutter kicks then moseyed to the art thing for dips (AKA arm squats) then headed back home. Along the way there was some chatter about getting rear ended, being in the Navy, and dropping the soap. It was kind of a blur for me and I don’t really remember what happened. I do know that I can’t sit down today. Huh? funny, that’s never been an issue. Oh well…..We got back to home base in time for some Mary then finished with a COT. Unfortunately our 5 minutes of Mary turned into 4 minutes. There was an explosion or automatic gunfire or something. All I know is it was bad, we had to stop quickly, and I was thankful the wind was not blowing in my direction.
During COT I was serenaded by Slaw aka Marilyn Monroe. It’s ok, SA. I know you are jealous. It will be your birthday soon and maybe you will get serenaded also. And don’t be ashamed of sloppy seconds. We all need some love sometimes. Just embrace it.
Prayers for Turtleman (among others). If you are reading this-get well, be strong, reach out if we can help.
thanks for coming out for my birthday. SYITG-Whoopee
