YHC arrived 10 minutes early this morning to set up for IPC 1. He fully intended to set everything up properly, as prescribed by the IPC studs of Greenwood, so that the PAX could have the greatest IPC experience possible. As it turns out, the devil is in the details. YHC inadvertently set up the cones at 25 feet apart instead of the prescribed 25 yards. Oops, sorry!
On another note, the popularity of IPC continues to amaze me as we had huge numbers post for this epic event. 7 PAX posted…Sarcasm intended… Hooray for IPC!!!
There were no FNGs this morning, so a very brief disclaimer was given. At this point, Moonshine groaned about being surprised that he was at another IPC BD. A few of us scratched our heads about this. How did everyone know except Moonshine? Anyway, Brownie provided a “Pro Tip” to Moonshine that from this point forward, in the month of September, expect an IPC every Tuesday. There, now Moonshine is in the know.
Oh, no official warmup was facilitated because we had a 45-minute, timed event to partake in. Even though we are supposed to start and finish on time, YHC had no clue as to how to squeeze in a warmup, instructions, and a 45-minute workout. The math just didn’t work.
45-Minute timed event
PAX started at a station and then rotated around the stations completing 25 reps at each station.
Station 1: 25 Burpees – Bear Crawl to station 2
Station 2: 25 Air Squats – Left Bear Crawl to station 3
Station 3: 25 Merkins – Crawl Bear to station 4
Station 4: 25 Big Boy Sit Ups – Right Crawl Bear to station 1
Rinse and repeat until time expired. PAX to record the number of reps completed
Someone observed Moonshine napping during Merkins. Macbeth commented quietly,
“If you’re napping during merkins, then you’re actually doing napkins.”
Best dad joke of the morning and he’s not even a father yet.
Pray for Dreamer’s family friend who is suffering from depression.
Keep everyone safe that is participating in Blue Ridge Relay and Grow Ruck events.
Thank you for your patience with my flubbed-up IPC setup.
