Tiger messaged me earlier in the week that he needed to switch Q’s with me and I obliged. Woke up to a nice cool morning and drove to the Yank with a white board in tow. Pulled in to see some getting EC and some high rollers of F3 Gastonia. I was a little nervous but I’d turn that in energy.

Mosey down to the Bunker as a train was leaving, whew! I said in my head no burpees today. Nothing really planned for a warmup but we did Gravel pickers, toy soldiers, SSHs 11x IC. I think there were 11 merkins too, OYO.

We split from the Bunker crew and head to the track. I’m going to hate the day Belmont gets rid of that.

Arrive at the track to see my white board, borrowed from my M. Mayor had a Q at the Goat a few weeks ago and I stole his idea. I switched up the exercises so it wasn’t a complete copy of his. Idea was to perform 10 of each exercise then take a lap, 9x lap, 8x lap all the way to 1 of each exercise and a lap.

Exercises were LBCs, merkins, squats, plank jacks, Freddy mercury’s, shoulder taps, SSHs, big boy sit ups, lunges and CDDs.

Everyone finished and some starting counting back up the ladder. The up and down was bad with the low rep numbers, sorry to everyone’s backs.

Plenty of time left so fellowship mosey to the shelter. Dips and derkins using the tables 20/10, 15/15, 10/20. Mountain climbers and step ups next, same reps. Finish and mosey to The Yank for some Mary. I think we did flutter kicks, American hammers, and crunchy frogs. Pizza man counted 22 push-ups for the vets and we were done.

Great crowd this morning with a few different faces. Thanks men.

Pledge of allegiance.
