Anyone got a towel, ’cause I think I’m sweating?
14 Isotope Faithful gathered in the Saturday morning Gloom to celebrate Bastille Day the good old American way, by storming Bailey Road Park.
Announcement to the Pax that there would be tag-team action by Co-QICs was clearly the last straw. There were rumors the Pax were organizing an overthrow and so Alabama took the lead and put in an early beat-down to break their spirits. He jogged them to the parking lot adjacent to The King’s court for:
Bosai x 20
Curb jumps – 50
Incline Merkins x 20
Extended time Wall plank with several variations
Jump ups and Merkins combo – 10 down to 1
This “warm-up” was not well received by the Pax, as their complaining seemed to know no end, headed up and egged on by the aptly named Outlaw. ‘Bama then handed control over to Soprano to continue to quell the revolution. The new QIC felt it was important to let the Pax feel comfortable, and so started them off with some familiar territory, thus attempting to gain their trust with:
SSH x 50
50-yard sprint to “hole 16” and back
50-yard sprint to “hole 16”
Carolina Dry docks x 15
50-yard Backwards run
Jog down the French countryside, stopping along the way for:
LBC x 25
Continue to the bottom of the hill where a spy was spotted pretending to be picking blackberries. “Blackberry” was obviously the code word to let the Pax know there was help on the way. The spy must have delivered the message to Primus as he was noticeably late to the next exercise. Soprano was alerted to this and continued the punishment with:
The slow squat x 15
Onward journeyed the Pax to Wolpack Playground for:
30 Single-leg Calf Raises
Feeling their spirits nearly broken QIC prepared for the final assault with:
Jog down to track turn 1: partner up- 11 Merkins, carry your partner to center of turn, swap positions and finish the turn with additional 11 Merkins at the end.
Outlaw once again chimed in with a request for mercy, pleading for a “10-count.”
Once granted the Pax had the rest of their pep drained with a 50-yard karaoke followed by a repeato of previous exercise, substituting 10 Burpees for the Merkins.
Upon leaving the track the Pax found a ray of sunshine by a brief view of the Tomato patch before heading up for very little MARY:
Rosalita x 25
Low Dolly x 25
The promised help finally arrived in the form of Primo, fresh from a workout at GCC! But, alas it turned out to be too little, too late, as the Pax lay dying in a perpetual state of Airborne Mindbender.
This year the revolution will not be televised! Viva La France.
- Ah The French- in the famous words of Groundskeeper Willie: “A bunch of cheese-eating surrender monkeys.”
- Is it me or was it a bit muggy this morning?
- We missed the boys who ran the Goat this morning. Heard enough details from Drive-thru to be happy not to have partaken- Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.
Tempest Fugit-memento mori.
