PAX (13): Caffey, Cart Path, Cookie, Devito, False Start, Focker, Groundhog, HighChair, Hollywood, lumbergh, MillerTime, Special K, Stiff Arm
Our buddy Fanny Pack had to sit out today, so YHC jumped on my first opportunity to lead Rubicon in 2022. We had 3 pre-runners who engaged in some good conversation while getting a nearly 3 mile run in.
The last time I Q’d I heard some grumbling about the lack of a quality disclaimer, so I tried to bring my A game today on the disclaimer front. The rest of the BD is easy breezy for the Q when you hit that disclaimer just right. And we are off!
Quick mosey to the parking lot in front of the old rec center for the following Warm-O-Rama:
Arm circles (forward and backwards)
Finished by telling the PAX that we would be doing 3 separate partner programs today, so think of 3 different partners.
Quick mosey down to the playground and partner up for Thang 1
Partner 1 does the MillerTime Special, Donkey Dans, while Partner 2 does 3 pull-ups and 3 hanging leg lifts from the pull-up bars. Total of 4 rounds, flap jack until all rounds are complete. Description of Donkey Dans below for reference.
1 Mercan to 3 Donkey Kicks, continually increasing. So second round is 2 Mercans, 6 Donkey Kicks, then 3 Mercans and 9 Donkey Kicks, and so on.
Quick mosey to the bottom of the Equestrian hill for Thang 2.
Pick a new partner (somehow YHC failed to choose a partner and realized it one round in) for the exercises. Partner 1 is running up the hill (forwards first time, backwards second time, forward third time, and backwards last time) while Partner 2 is doing as many reps of the exercise as possible. Flap jack until each partner has run up the hill 4 times and completed the four exercises. Exercises are below:
Mosey back over to the concession stand by the Field of Dreams for Thang 3.
Partner 1 is wall sitting while partner 2 completes the exercise, flap jack until each PAX has completed 4 rounds. Exercises are below:
Step ups onto the ledge: 30 single count
Wall Jumps: 15
Back to the flag, with an unofficial foot race that I believe Cookie won over Cart Path (and both left me in the dust). Finished up with a quick round of flutters and that was time.
Prayers for Lumbergh’s Dad; Devito’s daughter; my wife; our world leaders; and the people of Ukraine.
Also, Spring Convergence coming up on May 7th.
YHC threw out a little nugget about communication and receiving “bids” from our wives or others in our lives, and Cookie threw out a nugget about the struggle the younger generation is going through with the fear and lack of understanding of the war going on in Ukraine.
Such a great group of men, and thankful that you all allowed me to lead this morning.
