No QIC? No Problem
Posting on behalf of Rock:
It was 5:31 a.m. on a humid morning. No Boone? No 5-0? No Cindy? No problem.
Warm up run to back of school.
—side straddle hop x31
—burpees x 10
—180-jump squats x 10?
—long, slow bicycles x12? (you can see O2 deprivation had already taken hold)
—mountain merkins (Sabans w/mountain climbers + merkins)
Run to the futbol pitch.
—sprint length of field, 10 dying cockroaches (rinse, repeat x4)
Mosey to Little Baby Hill by tennis courts
—bear crawl up x2
—crab walk up x2
Run to Big Mama Hill by street for Spackler’s Hill x2
—run all the way up, back to outfield wall, all the way up, back to fence closest to school, all the way up (plank at top, lungewalk halfway down, rinse, repeat)
Three Minutes of Mary
—flutter kicks, heels to heaven, hold ‘em 6 smoots for the final 60 seconds
-We thought about doing Edward 50 Hands just to top last week, but, thankfully, reality prevailed.
-The mountain merkins may have marked the first time any Q needed a 10-count mid-exercise. YHC pleads guilty to biting off more than he could chew.
-Lots of things missing today. Besides the QICs, El Deuce lost a wedding ring and Sprague lost a key. Good news on the ring after a lucky bounce. Unfortunately, no luck with the key. Sprague later reports that placing the key in a pocket with a zipper seemed like a good idea … except for the hole in the bottom of the pocket.
-Speaking of missing QICs, this could have been an unprecedented chain of mishaps. Boone was absent, 5-0 got the flu and Cindy, who apparently had been tapped as a replacement, did not post. In fairness, we understand Cindy joined OBT and others for last night’s Evening 6 in the 95-degree heat.
-Get ready for Saturday’s workouts. Mustang crew will converge with the Jungle because of 24 Hours of Booty. Indy and Cotswold, meanwhile, are about to get some pain from Double Eagle and D’oh!, respectively. D’oh! was actually EHed pre-workout into donning a weight vest. At all three sites, PAX should consider themselves warned.
-Prayers go out to Grasshopper and his family. Glad to hear 2.0 is improving. We’re praying for a speedy, complete recovery.
