Not Playing with a Full Deck

Not Playing with a Full Deck

Starting the morning at 38 degrees can always be painful but feels like heaven after 10- minutes. DiCCS were given two minutes before 5:30 and the team was introduced to a deck of playing cards.

Four PAX were assigned suits with a corresponding pain exercise: Posse hearts Jump Squats, Everyone forget (lol) spades Bonny Blairs, Chatter Box clubs Speed Skaters, and Everyone forgot (lol) diamond Big Boy sit-ups, and Premature joker for dealers choice of 25 of any exercise. PAX started off 600M Mosey to the front of the school for a “simple” warmup.

Calf stretch 15 seconds per leg

Mosey around to the side of the school to start the THANG

The Thang

Started with Paula Abdul by running to second light pole and back one to flip first card. After completing 10 Paula Abdul’s and the all cards showed speed skaters, bonny blair, and jump squats. It became clear to me quickly why I sucked at IPC. PAX proceed to next parking lot and circled up to flip 15 more cards. Somehow, no one remembered the correct suit for spiderman merkins…hmm. Yeap, more legs and the PAX was happy! Last card flipped, the joker which meant dealers choice and good time to do 25 burpees.

Mosey another 400M and decided to take a small break from running and started walking lunges the distance of two light poles. Legs were on fire and headed to the cafeteria area to circle up and flip 15 more cards. Again, we all forget the spiderman merkins suit. However, as luck would have it, the joker was flipped. Dealer decided to do 25 spiderman merkins. Mosey back to COT parking lot to flip 15 more cards and at this point legs were shot!

PAX was shy by 5 cards and ran 2.8 miles. All said and done, over 100 bonny blairs, 100 jump squats, and 100 speed skaters plus Joker wild. I am sure walking downstairs will be fun.

Everyone pushed it today and got in a good workout being hump day. Great job!
