Very warm day at the greatest afternoon AO around and 10 strong Pax came out to evidently what was expected to be an easy workout from the old man Q. Let’s see what we can do to change that notion!

SSH, Abe Vigodas, Right over Left, Left over Right, Moroccan Night Clubs, Low Slow Squats.


Mosey toward dog park hill stopping at each light pole for 3 Burpees for about 10 light poles stopping to wait on the six at each pole. Burpees? Yes Burpees. I hate them but probably need a few so I called them.

At dog park hill, partner up for Dora 123. Partner 1 runs the hill while partner 2 begins:
100 perfect form merkins (Hand release Merkins with shoulder taps, hate these too)
200 flutter kicks (count right leg)
300 LBC’s. Several “dogs” in the dog park seemed to be paying attention to the guy with perfect hair.
This was tougher than expected but luckily I had Defib as a partner and he did more than his fair share of the reps. These dudes worked that hill! Several finished by bringing in the six for a nice group effort! At this point Sister Act’s name was brought up in a negative light but I shut that down and will not hear of this during my Q!

Mosey to the lower parking lot for Route 66 with 1 CDD, bear crawl to the next space, 2 CDD’s and continue through 11 spaces. Some comments about CDD form but I am not sure who it was directed toward. Freight, Slaw, Defib and Wirenut made this look easy but it was not!

Mosey to the parking lot back near the flag for one last thang.
Elevens with 10 Big Boys on one side and 1 American Hammer on the other. We almost completed before time.

During the workout I read a few quotes about blessings from various people as I have been feeling very blessed in many ways lately. I think most of us are so very blessed in many ways and it is good to have gratitude for those blessings. Here are the quotes.

“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” – Willie Nelson

“Gratitude lifts our eyes off the things we lack so we might see the blessings we possess.” – Max Lucado (I can recommend his books as they are easy reads and very practical).

“When we lose one blessing, another is often most unexpectedly given in its place.” – C.S. Lewis (His books are a bit more difficult but I have enjoyed the ones I have read).

“Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.” – Thomas Goodwin

“Don’t just count your blessings. Be the blessing other people count on.” – Anonymous

I relayed the story of a friend who passed away last week who was always a blessing to others. His name was Bud Jonas and I have known him over 40 years. His visitation was full of laughter and funny stories and the church was over capacity with people standing. The pastor even said funerals like this are easy because his life speaks for itself. We should all be striving to live so that our life is a blessing to others.
