10 PAX out for a jog early in the gloom. The group was a little quieter than usual. Not sure if that’s because there was nothing to say or because everyone was out of breath and too busy sucking wind for mumble chatter.
Started off with the light warmup:
- Cotton Picker
- Imperial Walker
- Out for a jog around the park with a break every couple of minutes for 30 seconds of exercise
- Jump Squats
- People’s Chair
- Leg Throws – core exercise where partner A throws the legs of partner B down toward the ground while partner B tries to keep legs up at 90 degrees from the ground while laying on his back
- Freddy Mercury
- Mosey into the turf baseball diamond for some more at your own pace. Keep running around the warning track and stop for exercises
- Mountain Climbers
- Muhammad Ali
- Short mosey out to the hill where we partnered up. Partner A did core exercises while partner B pack pedaled up the hill and ran back down. Switch places so everyone gets a turn on each exercise.
- Elbow Plank
Nacho and Crack pulled up at the last minute, delaying the beat down for as long as possible. As already mentioned, it was quiet this morning among the PAX. We’ve learned to expect more of the mumble chatter, especially from Darth Visor (Respect!). Defcon 2 kept a spot at the front of the PAX just to be sure he didn’t end up getting left behind. PE showing some huge improvements in short number of beat downs. Boomer and Mufasa get a special shout out for their contribution in providing suggestions for exercises to use. Crack and Nacho Libre finished the workout on another level. Those two were about ready to lap the rest of the PAX out on the turf if we had gone much longer. No See Um seems to be making a habit of showing up, contrary to what his name would suggest. Grits must have had the flag, betting opens now whether or not we see him on Thursday since Crack took the flag home with him.
God is good! He showed favor toward Mufasa and enabled him to complete the project that was a pain point last week. Boomer’s daughter had the privilege of spending some time at the dentist today thanks to a broken tooth. Hope and pray that went well and any recovery period goes quickly.
Convergence on 7/11 at Riverside Park at 0700 for an hour and a half of pain. Thursday morning (7/9) Crack will be QIC. Bring the running shoes.
