The baseball gods and weather gods frowned upon the beatdown I originally drafted yesterday afternoon. The plan was for a burpee-free workout....I modified as necessary.
Started at Sports Park Pavillion due to lightning.
-Zen-like Neck Rolls
Adapted the beatdown on the fly to the sports park setting. We actually expected a bad cell of lightning that never came, so I was able to stick to about 60% of my original plan. The theme of the workout was bring our Windjammer PAX together through the common threads between Philly and GA/ATL sports.
-31 burpees due our Craig Kimbrel (#31) connection. The plan was no burpees, but that was before Kimbrel blew the game last night
-Extra 6 burpees due to wrong answer on number of Bulldogs on Eagles
-7 Sprints of about 40 yards up parking lot hill for our triple connection of D'Andre Swift (#7 with Bulldogs from one of my rival HS in Philly and now an Eagle)
3)2 Rounds of Merkins/Squats for the Big Guys
We never quite figured out what 9+8+9+0 whatever that adds up to but we did that many Merkins and Squats with a little run loop (2 rounds)
-Carter #98 Davis #90
4.)Coupons - 2 rounds 25 shoulder presses and rows plus small run loop
-25 for #22 Ringo and # N. Smith
5.)More Burpees until our GA fans could FINALLY remember NAKOBE DEAN!?
-17 each of LBC, Box Cutter, Gas Pumpers with small run loop between each set.
6.)Back to the Phillies for Georgia-born Zach Wheeler #45
-3 Sets of Colt 45 with small run loop in between
7.)Back to the Pavilillion to get ready for the big college game Saturday...We Are...Penn State
No Georgia connection here other than to hopefully have Singleton #10 and Allar #15 bring pain to current GA resident @MiliVinilli.
Prayers for @FalseStart and those impacted by the coming job cuts
NLB breakfast upcoming with Norseman and 12/2 for us. Plan to be there.
Santa Ruck coming up and also Windward Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party and potential Beer Ruck (dates not captured by Q)
Lightning boomed at 4:55 just as many Windjammers were waking up. It would have been very easy to stay in bed and use the rain or even safety as an excuse. A great lesson that F3 has taught me is to make myself uncomfortable and to not search for easy excuses. As Q it never occurred to me that I could not show up this morning and let my fellow-Windjammers down. Kudos to the 7 other guys who also came!! It was an honor to lead this group!!
