An early morning appt for my M took me away from my recent Friday hangout at Bushwood CC. Boneyard was in need of a Q, so why not grab it?
Q forgot to put out the call for headlamps, and wanted to avoid a repeat of his last Q where he put an old man on the IR. Fortunately most PAX had a spare in their car so we were well lit.
Q gave a 2 word disclaimer and initiated the BD…
Q came in feeling very warm after the pre-run. Nonetheless, all PAX were provided a warm-up of:
Motivator (up to 8)
Some discussion ensued about proper motivator form, whether to count up or down, etc. Then we started down the park loop
Follow the park loop, with stops roughly every 1/4 mile for 20 mercans. At the pull-up bars, stop for 2 rounds of Morning Call (all PAX do LBC while each PAX separately does 5 pull-ups). Continue on with additional mercan stops
At the back end of the park, cut up toward the playground. Q opted for swercans at the playground instead of mercans. Due to lack of swings for 6 PAX, the remaining PAX did squats while waiting for a swing to open up.
That put us at 100 mercans and approximately a mile.
Head to the pavillion by the concession stand. 20-15-10-5 dips and step-ups.
To the soccer field. With 6 PAX, why not go for a Triple Check? 1 PAX in a static hold, 1 PAX runs to mid-field and back, 1 PAX exercises. Cumulative totals of 100 burpees, 200 monkey humpers, 300 American Hammers were quickly cut in half. PAX could choose their static position.
With a bit too much time on the clock, headed to the concession/bathroom corridor and were lining up for our exercise when a toilet flushed in the ladies restroom. We went around the corner to avoid scaring the wits out of some poor woman. This led to FannyPack stomping a cockroach, but apparently failing to kill it. Nothing like working out outdoors!
To honor our Nantan, we did increasing sets of donkey kicks, holding the last rep until Q called it. 5-10-15. Then back to the flag.
Made it almost all the way around for Mary…Dolly, J-Lo, Freddy Mercury, Dying Cockroach (RIP), and 100s.
Analysis of sweat patterns immediately followed. It was a steamy one today.
