“The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually.”Eeyore
Eventually maybe, but not today. Regardless, 5
suckers brave men rolled out of the fartsack and frolicked in the puddles at Outland. YHC had prepared a workout for slightly dryer conditions, but out of spite or perhaps pure laziness wasn’t willing to modify it too much.
The mumble chatter was strong from the start as we took a long mosey around the starting parking lot. Disclaimers were given and the dread set in as we realized how deep the waters were. Circle up and stretch those muscles:
It was an honor leading these fine gentlemen through the cold and wet in the Valley formerly of the Sun. I’m sure in the not too distant future the AO will live up to it’s namesake, it’ll be hot and muggy, and we’ll be wishing it was cold and rainy again. For now, though, these guys were awesome and trudged through it with no (minimal) grumbling.
4 brave men posted at Valle del Sol to see what YHC had planned for a last minute substi-VQ. Fortunately, we all survived.
WU: Long mosey around the starting parking lot to get the juices flowing. Circle up back at the start. Random number (not divisible by 5) of SSH, Potato Pickers, Low Slow Squats, Merkins, and a wee bit o’ calf stretching.
Mosey to the bus shelter for the Thang:
Moleskin: The Good Hoeffer found foam dice at the $$ store, added some exercises to each side, and was kind enough to bring them out to Outland today. We took turns tossing them after each mosey to add to the workout. Extra grumbling was had by all.
YHC heard that Bonhoeffer loved running so I was sure to include 2.97 miles of it today. YHC also heard today that Bonhoeffer wanted to slash the tires of whoever said he loved running…
If anyone knows where to find a good breakfast-scented cologne, then I can tell you what to get Double E for his birthday. Something sure smelled good out there today but it wasn’t us.
Shepherd was the only one today that got the Respect, and he deserved it as I think he did the least grumbling.
A big thanks to these excellent pax for showing up and offering good words of encouragement for my virgin Q. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.
