PAX (11): Ballboy, Meatball, Wingnut, Homer, Popper, Feathers, Puff Daddy, Catfish, Doughboy, Ready Mix, Dinghy


It was darn near balmy for this morning’s BD at PTC Town Center. Adding to the temperature was the high morale of the group

Single person pre-run for Homer.

YHC did not participate in pre-run, as he was ensuring that the PAX would be entertained while they sweated. Standard disclaimer was provided, and maintained good social distance throughout.


In Cadence:
10 Weed Pickers
10 Windmills
10 Fire Hydrants (i.e., pretending like you’re a dog at a hydrant, 10 each side)
10 Moroccan Night Clubs
10 Side straddle hop
Mosey lap (figure 8 short lap around the town center village green area)

The Thang:

Coupon carry to The Jungle Gym (with turf area to stay as dry as possible).

Tabata Supersets with 2 exercise AMRAPS, 6 total rounds which included:
1 Merkens / Block Rows
2 Block Squat-Press/Am Hammer
3 BBSU / Front Swings
4 Good mornings / Gas pumpers
5 Monkey humpers / curls
6 Blockees/High knees

Each round was accompanied by a run around the short loop

Completed with 2 minutes of of Mary vs. 6 (no slack time on the BD!).

Did not have time for Zamperindian Lunge Walk – will save that for later!


1. Sending up prayers for Popper’s Dad and his aunt as they fight the good fight.

2. Prayers for healing in our country, especially given the events of the last couple of weeks.

3. Just a note that as we celebrate Dr King’s birthday on Monday, volunteer if you have an opportunity, and have a talk with the 2.0’s on the importance of the day and the man.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Appreciate, as always, the honor/responsibility to be the Q for the AO this morning. The fact that PAX had to lose sweathshirts and hats meant that folks were working hard, and that happens every time we’re out there. A definite motivator to provide everyone with a solid start to the day!
