Most will have no idea what that title means but if ya know, ya know. Maybe it’s selfish, but I grabbed this Q a few weeks ago to help motivate myself to get up and post. My running has been improving recently so I wanted to do something where we covered a lot of miles and test my cardio a bit. A quick look through some older weinkes gave me what I was looking for.

Warmup – we’re going to cover a lot of ground in this workout so some stretching was in order. Side straddle hops followed by toy soldiers, toe touching, hurdle stretches, etc. We took an extra minute or two to wait for Wirenut as he finished straightening his beard and touching up his lipstick. Now that he was with us, let’s get it on.

Mosey to the flag at the entrance of Folsom. The group got a bit stretched out as I tried to push the pace. I led the PAX in a set of flutter kicks as Ball Joint graciously picked up the six. Pledge to the flag and then a quick mosey to the gazebo area.

We used the triangle-shapped road around the gazebo for 5 rounds of escalating excercises – 10 Big Boys at the first corner, run to the next corner for 20 Merkins, run to the 3rd corner for 30 squats, then run back to the start and repeat. Bat flippers were encouraged to get in an extra round as the normal people finished their rounds. A few got in 6 laps, Round Up may have gotten in 7.

10 count by Spackle to let the six grab their breath. Short mosey to Round Up’s hill. I called an audible because it looked to be really wet and I just wasn’t feeling it. I may have been called names for this but it’s all good. I’ll show them. Continue the mosey around the to the entrance of the splash pad parking lot.

Triple Nickel with Burpees at the top of the hill and Elbow to Knee Crunches at the bottom (count right side only). Again, bat flippers were encouraged to continue for extra rounds as they finished and the usual suspects got in 6 rounds.

Quick mosey back to the flag. Time was up but we got in a quick set of 20 flutter kicks in cadence as we waited on the six.

Good work by all of the PAX today! A few guys were laboring with injuries but no man was left behind. Shout out to all of the guys for picking up the six at both workout stations. Everyone moved the entire time and the guys finishing first kept on pushing with extra reps rather than just waiting around. IMO, that is the way it should be. I think it can be a bit disheartening to the six when they see guys standing around talking when they finish their reps. I will tell you from my personal experience, it makes you feel like you’re holding people back as the six. Get back in there and work! I saw that all over the place today!

Prayer Requests: Huck, the Parker family (Hacksaw’s mom passed), Striper’s brother and his injuries, Medicine Woman’s family, Sarlacc, Hartzell family, Beatle Bailey’s friend Jenna. YHC took us out in prayer.
