Plenty of sweat added to the already foggy aura.  Good to get back on the Q-train.  Yes, Posse…..I will sign up for a future Homecoming gig.

Welcomed FNG Todd Pfalzgraf – Cool Runnings.  Appropriately named after one of his 50 bucket list items of learning a new sport.  That sport being “Skeleton Racing” where you ride belly-down, head first, 85 mph on a sled down Olympic style bobsled courses.  Welcome “Cool” and extra prayers sent your way with each “run”.

Smell What’s Cooking

Belated BB from Tuesday.  After the VQ Saturday at Commitment, had to re-fire the ovens for the Bushwood halfway house diners.  Whether cold or hot, leftover deep dish is a tastier experience so the weinke had to bring something special.

Warmup

Mosey around the bus lot, along Marvin School Rd to the upper parking lot.  SSH, IW, Merkins & Mountain Climbers all x 18.  Stretching – calf followed by up/down dogs.

The Thang

Grab a rock, pick a lane and line up at back line of parking lot.  Sets/reps consisted of:

Curls x 20, run to opposite end of lot for squats x 10.  Repeat twice for 60 total reps.  Alternate squats & Bobby Hurley’s at opposite end.

Tricep Extensions x 20, run to opposite end of lot for squats x 10.  Repeat twice for 60 total reps.  Alternate squats & Bobby Hurley’s at opposite end.

Return rock to pile and mosey to bus lot and wall.

Grab a partner – 100 air presses, 100 donkey kicks while partner does lap around bus lot.

PAX in a circle, on your six.  Counter clock-wise around the circle with PAX calling out ab exercise of choice, 10 reps each.  Figi audibled with a set of cross-handed diamond merkins claiming that was ab related.  “Conveniently” ended right on time prior to Jwoww calling the 2nd audible for plank, forearm push-ups.

Moleskin

Bushwood members were cooked and thoroughly enjoyed the leftovers as validated by One Star stating “not a lot of chatter this morning”.  Bellies aching and full, on to COT.

Waxhaw F3 2nd blood drive on 10/17/20 at Waxhaw American Legion.  TB has details.

Deep Dish shared story of life and heroics from Monday afternoon.  Co-worker suffered a heart attack while walking to a client interview / presentation on Trade Street uptown.  Fellow co-worker jumped in to administer CPR and was able to “bring him back”.  EMT’s and ER doctors confirmed that the CPR saved his life.  Thanks to his actions, we still have a co-worker, friend, husband and father of two with us today.  Good reminders for how precious life is, how it can change in a second and the immeasurable value of CPR training / certification.

Finally some REAL Pizza

Chef’s hat on, dough ready to rise, and ovens preheated for some home cooked Chicago Style Deep Dish VQ (pizza). Not knowing the appetite nor preferences of this mornings PAX, weinke included a plethora of toppings to choose from (more like eat it and like it) and some secret sauce for kicks.

Warmup

Mosey to the bridge and back to turnaround.  SSH, IW, Merkins & Mountain Climbers all x 20. Stretching – calf followed by up/down dogs.

Thang

Mosey to rock pile for PAX to select topping (rock) of their choice.  3 sets of 25 each of curls, overhead press and tri’s.  Run/jog a lap to end of road after each set of 25.  75×3 = 225 topping reps total with 9 laps in between.  Dough, PAX BPM’s and sweat rising.

Mosey to front parking lot to discover toppings scattered in 4 corners and something special in the middle.  PAX broke into groups of 4to digest the following.  High knees while traveling 1 to 2 and 3 to 4. Karaoke between 2 to 3 and 4 to 1.

Corner 1 – Merkins x 20, Bobby Hurley’s x 20

Corner 2 – Curb dips x 20, donkey kicks x 20

Corner 3 – Dry Docks x 20, Speed Skaters x 20

Corner 4 – LBC’s x 20, Plank jacks x 20

Middle – Burpee’s x 5

Repeat above for second helping with corner reps x 15 each.

While waiting for 6 to fully digest second helping, J-Woww interjected Jersey / NY style toppings of plank / tricep pushups and diamond merkins x 10 each.  Another reminder why NY style sucks and should not be on the menu.

Crust now golden brown and cheese (PAX) melting to perfection, added some ladder-7 special sauce consisting of squats and dry docks.

Aroma now filling the Kessington campus, PAX dug-in with a mosey  back to top of hill followed by a lunge walk / every-other tree merkin regurgitation to COT parking lot.

Moleskin

PAX’s (possibly VQ) eyes were bigger than their appetite.  All “savored” every bite (rep) only to over indulge and feel miserable when done.  But in true complimentary fashion, the post-post belches, moans and groans were compliments to the VQ and will only make PAX come back for more. That’s what real Deep Dish pizza is all about!
