Making it up as we go…

Making it up as we go…

11 men kicked off Turkey Week by getting it done at The Matrix.  With the temps in the low 30s, the virtual shovel flag was planted firmly in our minds, we set off for a warmup mosey around campus and back to the lower lot.  Here’s how it went down:


  • SSH x 20
  • Low Slow Squat x 20
  • Slow Rising Merkins x 15
  • Imperial Walkers x 20
  • Mountain Climbers x 20

Mosey over to the track and line up abreast on one end for some combo 11’s:

  • Round 1: Merkins & Squats (do 10/1 on one side, run back to other side for 9/2, and so on)
  • Run a lap
  • Round 2: Dry Docks & Full Sit Ups
  • Run a lap…and a half
  • Round 3 on short side of field: 7’s with Burpees and Romanian Dead Lifts

Mosey over to the wall and get comfy…on the wall:

  • People’s Chair + 100 air presses
  • Wall Plank + 10 derkins in cadence
  • People’s Chair lower down for 30 second with heels off the ground
  • Wall Plank + 10 derkins in cadence
  • People’s Chair + 100 air presses

Mosey back to launch for some mary:

  • Slow Freddie Mercury x 20
  • LBC x 20
  • High Flutters x 20

All over!

Ye shrinked naked moleskin:

It was one of those mornings that YHC knew it was cold outside and contemplated even going to The Matrix.  Lying in bed at 4:55am thinking that I didn’t even know who was Qing today.  Hope it’s not anyone lame.  Probably is and not worth going.  Then I think…wait, am I Qing?  Damn!  So yes, someone lame and probably not worth going to see in on Q.  I better get out of bed and start thinking about a weinke.  Some of it I thought about on the way over, some of it was made up as we went. Hope it worked out.

A chilly one this morning.  Finally got Rachel to bust out long sleeves and gloves.  It’s about time! As we ran the warm up lap in reverse from normal, I spotted OT and McGee running through the parking lot.  Glad they spotted us heading in the other direction.  Also randomly spotted a sign welcoming Chubby Checker.   If that’s for real, I’ve got to go see that.  Otherwise, I was kinda hoping we had an FNG so we could name him that.  I mean, there was already a sign welcoming him. What else could it be?

We were happy to see McGee do full extension merkins today with the slow risers.  He said for some reason he could feel it in his chest which he’d never felt before when doing merkins.  Also put in a request for some neck exercises. Solid group out there today.  Alf  & Turkey Leg were out front most of the time as always.  Squid didn’t care what number we were on during the 11s.  He just kept going AMRAP.    Smokey, Rachel, Witch Doctor, Huggie and Orange Whip kept it between the lines all morning.  O’Tannenbaum sweated profusely per usual.

Thanks to Pop Tart for asking me to lead one last time in 2017 before my reign of every Monday in 2018 begins.  Thanks to Squid for the take out.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Be thankful for everything and everyone you have in your life.
