18 PAX joined YHC even though many had correctly guessed that we would carry some extra weight this am. The heckling started exactly 6 days, 23 hours, and 15 minutes ago as Purple Haze noted last week how easy this week would be #firewood. Then my own brother (pretty sure he was adopted from a pigmy tribe in the south Pacific) jumps on the pile right before we start this morning with a snarky comment about an easy workout. They might think otherwise next time (and I should learn to ignore their taunts but not likely that will happen).
Grab two pavers and head out of the lot. The Q promptly trips on the barrier next to the bus and smashes both pavers (saved me – now Beaver and I are the only two to trip on that damn thing). Runstopper takes the PAX for some warm-up while YHC circles back to grab two more pavers. No real damage #stuntman
COP – Warm up with SSH led by RS, and then merkins, mountain climbers, parker peters and man maker merkins.
Mosey to parking deck for the main event – Modified Beast. Six trips up the parking deck (long ramp up to 3, down to other end of 3, half ramp up to 4, and stairs back to start) with 6 reps of called exercise at 6 stops (half ramp at 2, top of ramp at 3, end of level 3, top of 4, and back at bottom of deck.
Mosey down to parking lot at end of football field for a few minutes of Mary – shortened since the Q can’t remember the difference between a dolly and flutters. We did dollies/flutters, flutters/dolly, rosalita and that was it (Q was smoked at this point and things were getty hazy).
Mosey over to parking lot in front of swimming pool. 20 push presses than bear crawl up the lot and run backwards back to bricks. 20 more push presses, bear crawl up and backward run down, 20 push presses and backward bear crawl up and backward run back. Push presses and curls for 1 minute and then head back to the starting point for COT.
Well that sucked. I completely smoked myself so I hope a few of you got your money’s worth. You can tell the boss it’s Chelms fault if you have to take a nap this afternoon. The pavers do it every time – carrying them for 45 minutes is aweful. Add the Beast, burpee finish and Purple Haze’s call for the backward bear crawl up the parking lot cummulatively made it really suck. I often confuse dollies and flutters and this morning was epic since I got them backward sequentially. I was deep in the pain cave at that point and not thinking clearly at all.
Everyone pushed hard and the gap between rabbits and six was much less than I expected. The pavers tend to even things out a bit. I have a camera up to “protect” the pavers so don’t get any ideas about taking them out. We only use a few times per year and those times are “special”. Mermaid and Haze especially like the pavers.
Flutie parks his rental in the middle of the lot – I guess that’s how he does it now that he is living up north so he doesn’t get snowed in by the plows. Please remember it only snows once per year in Charlotte and NEVER in May. Next time someone parks a car in the middle of the lot we will flip it a few times to work the shoulders.
Memorial Day convergence on Saturday at Calvary and Patriot 5k at South Park Mall on Memorial day.
Please pray for Utah’s dad, who is in critical but stable condition at CMC.
Great take out by Hops – he’s starting to really get the hang of this praying thing (only took a year since he started his ministry).
