Site Q swap and YHC can only hope that my Q will be half as good as my brother Sensie’s will be at Sparta today. Considering he ran the BRR and kills it every time I have seen him at post, one can only imagine what those poor Spartans are in for…
~4:45AM Woke up due to a standard Thursday alarm..
~5AM all ready with 30 mins to get 15 mins away..Oh well.. I can make it to Sparta launch site and plant the flag before they head out. Slightly worried about the temps keeping the pax away today and even sent Sensei a text last night as a preemptive “Just in case”.
~5:15AM Pulling into the AO and there stood more than few Spartans ready to start the day. Cold be damned.. A51 MAtthews pax could care less about the cold.
~5:30AM Its Peak 51’s turn to launch
Disclaimer given and also admitted to being a Peak 51 FNG.
New favorite warm up exercise called out and Lois immediately begins the mumble chatter with his declaration of his love for the BLIMPS
Burpees: 5 OYO
Lunges: 10 each leg OYO
Imperial Walkers: 15
Merkins: 20 Civilian Count
Plank Jacks: 25 OYO
Squats: 30 OYO
Mosey to parking lot
DANG ITS COLD!!
Perform one BLIMPS for additional warm up… would hate to pull a hammie during a beat down
4 corners to hit the big 3 (Legs, Abs, Chest)
Round 1 Squats 10 Bomb Jacks at center.
Round 2 Sit-ups 10 Dolly’s at center. How is it you can always find that one location in a GIANT parking lot that has that one small rock to dig into your tailbone.. There were 4 locations.. 4!!! I swear Lois was planting these rocks so I had no other choice but find them all.
Round 3 Merkins 10 Dry Docks at center. I am pretty sure Thumper must do Merkins in his sleep.. Dude can fly through some Merkins
Perform one BLIMPS (friend should not let Qs write a Weinke while consuming bourbon)
The Peak 51 PAX is warmed up now.. Sardine declares the crew is growing tired of YHC’s warm-up exercise and says it’s time to get to work. Yes sir.. I agree.
Keeping warm was and moving was the object of the Q today..
Mosey up the hill to the back parking lot of the school.
Ladder 11s (always a crowd pleaser on a cold day and today was no exception. Nobody is going to stay cold on my watch… no sir… not while we have open parking lots available and time still left before 6:15am)
Perform one BLIMPS modified to a NOPE (Bourbon got a little to happy with BLIMPS.. YHC thinks they may have something for each other)
Partner up: Pax 1 does called exercise as partner 2 goes to far end and performs one burpee, returns and continues the count. (Thumper/Sardine, Lois/Gypsy, Bernie/Madoff)
Join the 6 to complete
Mosey back to the Launch site.
No time for Mary.
Mumble Chatter was limited today and I think it was because the PAX was just a pissed at my Bourbon drinking Wienke writer as I was. There are some wienkies you keep as a backup plan for future Q assignments and others you just burn. Well… it is cold outside and the fire pit needs help getting started…
The cold weather tends to reduce the pax numbers… but not in A51 Matthews area. Thank you guys for sticking out with me this morning. No way I could have finished it without the PAX.
Until next time.
