Simple Sweaty Summer Sunrise Beatdown at Windjammer
QIC: Walkie Talkie
PAX (11): Cookie, Deep dish, Dipstick, False Start, Maytag AI, Milli Vanilli, Sparkie, Townie, uga, Freon
With the promise of great tunes, cold towels, and hot coffee in our future, an 11Pax of Jammers set out into the humid gloom to get our sweat on.
The only way to start a playlist that could contend for GOAT-status is with Simple Man by the dam. Yes we did SSH, Weedpickers, Imperial Walkers, Toy Soldiers, ArmCircles, & Michael Phelps. Be a simple kind of man!
Thang #1: “We went hungry” to the beat of Hunger Strike on the Windjammer 5 Times up and down with 5 Merkins at the top and bottom – we definitely ran it faster on the front end of the beatdown
Thang #2: “Look at the stars, look how they shine for you” Yes sir, we did curls, and a burpee on “Yellow”. You know I love you so.
Thang #3: We found another hill & ran it 3X to Little Lion Man & Summer of ’69; 40 reps per lap; 10 Merkins & 30 LBCs followed by 20/20 followed by 30/10
We moseyed back to Boys of Summer & stopped on an Island in the Sun to do squats…yes “we were playing and having fun!”
Thang #4: Grabbed some more coupons and did Colt45s and a run to All Apologies Why? Because “in the sun we feel as one…and all in all is all we are”. That’s why. To Flake we did some Pax called Flutters & Waterfall Burpees.
The Grand Finale: our fearless cold-towel-providing leader caps me at one Imagine Dragons song per beatdown. And despite peer pressure to break this rule, I obeyed. But I did save it for last. We ended with Squats & Speed Burpees on the chorus of I Bet My Life. We even had a heads-up battle in the center of the ring. So many burpees were done that we lost count. Nice work, Gents.
Prayers for Townie’s end of quarter workday today and Monday.
Praise for safe travel last night for FalseStart & daughters
Praise for 4Pax and their middle-school bound girls & today’s orientation.
Welcome to our newest FNG, Freon, who absolutely killed it today, and ended with a mic drop as he walked off the stage to an early call.
One more week of summer hours at Windjammer starting with a Monday ruck and swim from FalseStart’s house. (5:30 resumes 8/7)
Always a pleasure to lead, nice work today, Guys…no better way to start the day.
“Oh, take your time, don’t live too fast. Troubles will come and they will pass. You’ll find a woman, yeah, and you’ll find love. And don’t forget son there is someone up above.
