The weather and the HC count was looking bad the night before and YHC was worried I wouldn’t get to properly try out the oversized wooden dice I found while cleaning the basement over the weekend. I assured the PAX we would stay safe in the parking deck if needed to try and fend off the fartsack early.
Lots of lightning on the drive over and still no other PAX in the parking lot at 5:27 am left YHC wondering if a solo BD was about to happen. Within 30 seconds 5 other PAX rolled in and the gloom got much better.
Head to the ampitheater stage and circle up for SSH, weed picker, willy mays hays, good morning IC. Terrible design left big puddles all over the stage so we’d need to move to the parking deck after all.
Head to the bottom level of the parking deck and form a circle for some dice while Hushpuppy hooked up the tunes.
All PAX will compete against the house (YHC) in rounds of exercises with a single roll of the die. PAX bets whether their roll will be higher or lower than the house. If PAX wins, we do the lower rep count. If the house wins, we do the higher. Tie goes to the house. Take a lap after each round. We decided PAX and house had to roll at the same time while PAX called over/under before seeing what the house roll was which made it super fun and exciting.
Round 1 – Merkins (5/10)
Round 2 – Squats (10/20)
Round 3 – LBC (15/30)
Round 4 – 5 burpees / 5 wolverines
Round 5 – wide merkins (10/15)
Round 6 – lunges (single count) (10/20)
Round 7 – reverse LBC (10/20)
Round 8 – 5 burpees / 5 wolverines
No time for mary and did COT in the deck instead of back at the flag for safety
Prayers for Benny’s family health challenges, Keyfob’s family moving to CA, and observation of Juneteenth which celebrates a significant milestone we can all agree was important for our country.
2 key observations from YHC today:
1 – I can’t recommend enough pre-emptively signing up to Q well in advance of knowing your circumstances or the weather forecast. I had a bag of excuses at the ready to “justify” fartsacking this morning and me pre-committing to Q took them all off the table.
2 – The emphasis on posting for your fellow PAX can be overstated either. If no one else showed up this morning, I was absolutely prepared to bag the workout and go home and back to bed, which is exactly what I DIDN’T need. Huge T-Claps to the 5 other men who showed up to hold me accountable today as I would’ve BAP if they didn’t.
