Tartarus Wins Again

Tartarus Wins Again

YHC rolled up to find most of the usuals already in place. A pretty mild morning, ready to get to work.

A disclaimer was given, and off we went.


Mosey to the top of the deck. Knowing we were about to Paula Abdul down it, we were supposed to take the stairs. But Scabby distracted me and we missed them. So we got a little more mileage in.

The Thang:

Paula Abdul – From the top of the deck, the idea being to run two segments forward, 1 backwards. At the end of the forward run, 10 jumpsquats. At the end of the backwards run, 10 walking lunges each leg. A brief wall sit and we were off.

Mosey to the parking lot beside the aquatic center and find a parking space. YHC gave perfect instructions to plankwalk down the lines, at every other parking space line 5 merkins, at the other one lunge walk to the end and back. This quickly turned into a cluster so we moved on. There was a round 2 to this, but you’ll never know what it was.

Mosey to the rock pile across the street and grab a lifting and moving rock.  Mosey back to the bottom of staircase 3 of Tartarus deck.

Starting at the bottom with your rock, do 10 overhead press, 10 tricep extensions and 10 curls, drop the rock and take the stairs to the top.  At the top, 10 donkey kicks, 10 air press on the wall and 10 burpees.  Run over and back down the middle staircase to your rock.  Take the rock to level 2 and perform rock exercises there.  Each time running to the top, exercise, and back to your rock (exercise) and taking it up 1 level to the top.

After dropping off the rocks, YHC asked Hops (the king of the bootcamp) what we should do with our last 6 minutes. Was there any chance he wasn’t going to say 6 minutes of Mary? So we did, mosey back to launch.

Prayers for 2nd Mission Trip Team to Peru

There were others, but I forgot. Brushback? Post below.

YHC with the take-out prayer


Always a great group at Centurion, one of my favorite AOs. Pretty good mumblechatter, just not where I expected it. I fully expected the talk to start early after calling 4 plank exercises in a row on the cheese grater floor of the top deck. Maybe I’ve just got better at tuning it out. But call a few exercises in a parking lot space and everyone is confused. Glad it worked out that way as we had time for the full deck work. Mermaid, Brilleaux and Snuka out front, but pretty much everyone stayed together. Hardly any waiting around. Scratch apparently borrowed his son’s gym shorts. My plank faced away from him. Those backwards runs that hit an incline hurt extra bad, will feel those. And the storage space next door messing up the view from the top of Tartarus, oh well, til next time.
