Moleskin:

The workout turned out to be very much confusing like much of my Q’s. Turned out better than expected though and I believe most of the PAX enjoyed the different style of workout. I should have Hired a referee in order to settle disputes on the field and call out fouls but I was on a budget.

Who wants Some more Mike Tyson’s?

10 Pax joined me today in the light drizzle of rain for a good ole’ workout today

Everyone gathers up for DiCC’S disclamer 1 cellphone 1 CPR certified a few with reflective gear and a few headlamps as well as the disclaimer to watch for traffic including buses, student drivers and teachers going to work. If I missed somthing don’t worry about my DiCC’S. 30 Seconds till art this time Centerfold came running in after he could not find DW and his crew. set my music up 3.2.1. Let’s Mosey  we moseyed a lap around middle school parking lot up to student drop off in front of middle school where we gathered for our warmup.

  • 25 SSH’S
  • 20 Merkins
  • Walk it up to toe touches
  • 15 Imperial Walkers

Mosey to bus drop off (stairs)

Partner up and explain workout (at this time who else showed up but our good ole’ friend Jingles)

First parner runs to the bottom of the stairs while the second parner begins the workouts

  • 100 Merkins
  • 200 Mike Tyson’s!!!
  • 300 Squats

When the first partner gets back they flip and repeat till finished.

The PAX were enjoying the Mike Tyson’s so much I was considering adding an extra 100.

When some PAX finished their 300 squats we began to marry till the last PAX finished the flipped that plan and helped the final team finish.

After we finished up we circled/lined for this next exercise 1 pax would pick a workout (most of the time it was their least favorite workout) that all the other PAX would have to do while the leading one ran down the stairs and back to the group and repeat till all the PAX go.

Next Mosey around the entire high school and regroup back at the stairs to collect any coats that had been left. After that line up and indian run from stairs past Transporters shead and back to middle school parking lot  45 seconds till 6:15 decided to plank it up until… time.

Thank You to all the pax who showed up this morning and supporting me. There seemed to be a few audibles but I’d say pretty good considering almost zero planning and no winkie.

Q School drop out GED version Q

15 Men came out for my Q. When checking who was on Q yesterday I was surprised to find out it was actually me. Figured I may want to plan something. I did not prepare a Winkie but had a plan none the less. Although Posse may disagree. So lets roll.

Quick DCCS check

D: Disclaimer – Stay Safe C: Cell Phone Doughboy C: CPR S: Safty we are in a parking lot watch for cars!

  • Mosey – To the Target parking lot via route behind Pet Smart.
  • Wedding singer rolling in late like Jingles knew where we were heading and linked up at Target.
  • 2nd Disclaimer not a Professional (this would be proven very soon) cant sue me or any business,  modify as needed
    • SSH x10
    • Imperial Walkers x20
    • Potato pickers x20
    • Merkins (not in cadence although the rest were not either it was a mess) x 10
  • More Mosey into the hood through a cul-de-sac, onto the sidewalk did not expect the down tree,  up around target and back to target.

Thang:

  • Four Corners (not well defined where those corners were but it got worked out on the first round.
    • Corner 1 –  Merkines  x 10
    • Corner 2 – Low slow squats x 20
    • Corner 3 – Burpees x 10
    • Corner 4 –  Jump squats x 20
  • Rinse and repeat 4 times

Mosey again –  This time out in front of chick-fil and then back to Hickory Tavern.  A baseball bat was laying on the sidewalk not sure why looks like it may have been being used for more than baseballs.

  • Partner up
    • Partner 1 is running around hickory Tavern and then relieve partner 2 from combined workouts.
      • 100 dips
      • 100 step ups
      • 100 Derkins although some did Merkins
  • Time is up

Moleskin:

  • Although my organization and cadence calling was not great it appears everyone got a good workout.
  • I register a 5K during the workout so we got some miles and 584 calories
  • Blue Screen had a recent Birthday and now that he is 60 he is very excited about 15% off on Kale and spinach at Harris Teeter on Tuesdays! Also at 60 he left me in the dust so extra respect brother.
  • during my warm up Posse and Recalculating were nice enough to point out some things that if I had showed up for recent Q school I would have known were wrong!
  • Although a couple of audibles some towards end to make adjustments for time. It appeared all involved were pretty well smoked and got a decent workout!!

Announcements

  • Lazy Boy VQ tomorrow at Dromedary
  • Posse Saturday  Joe Davis Run March 9th choice of 1 mile 5k or 10k price goes up Feb 1st.  Posse is Q for Pursuit on Thursday to get some extra miles not looking for speed just get those miles.

Thanks to BlueScreen for Taking us out in Prayer.

Can you say that in a disclaimer?

Been thinking about this backblast the whole day, after all it is my ‘first time’, my “VQ”.  I need a catchy title..  But, as those of you who know me best, I’m the last to use vulgar references such as loosing one’s “V” card, the “popping” of prunus avium and other cheep, dirty and cliche references to an intimate act.  Such references are best left for cheesy frat movies and the dialogue of Michael J. Scott.  I on the other hand will take the high road.  I will only say this:  I lasted a full 60 minutes and never had to say I’m sorry.


The Thang:


Usual disclaimer given however YHC provided some further clarification “I’m from Jersey and if you sue me, I know a few guys, it wouldn’t be in your best interests”.  


Warm Up:

  • Mosey to Nesbit Circle.
  •   25 SSH IC,
  • 15 potato pickers IC,
  • 15 IW, 25 SSH IC. 
  • Bear crawl the circle. 

 What the.., did he just call a bear crawl less than 3 minutes in?  Yes he (YHC) did.

  • Mosey to the side of the school parking lot with the  basketball court. 
  • 10 Merkins, run to the end of parking lot,
  • 10 Bobby Hurleys, rinse and repeat 10X.
  • Mosey to Nesbit Drive. 
  • My version of Aiken Legs. 
  • 20 squats, 20 high knee jumps
  • 20 mountain climbers,
  • 20 lunges
  •  mosey to every 4th tree.  Repeat 5X.
  • Partner Up, similar speed, split group in half. 
  •  Group 1:  100 yd sprint race with partner. 
  • Group 2:  25 SSH IC.  Flap Jack, Rinse and Repeat 2X.  
  • Partner Up. P1, runs from circle to parking lot.
  •   P2 does dips.  Rinse and Repeat until each PAX completes 100 dips.
  • 25 Carolina Dry Docks, run from circle to parking lot.  25 LBC’s.  Rinse and Repeat 4X’s.  Finished with less than 30 seconds left.

Moleskin:  According to Rubbermaid’s wizardly, voodoo injected rectangular cube, we covered 3 miles.  We also did 1,000 reps:  100 SSH’s, 100 Merkins, 100 Bobby Hurleys, 100 squats, 100 high knee jumps, 100 mountain climbers, 100 lunges, 100 dips, 100 dry docks and 100 LBC’s. 

Rubbermaid, Tupperware, Jingles and Centerfold lead the pack.  During the first 100 yd sprint, YHC proved that even donkeys can leave others in the dust.  On the second 100 yd dash, Centerfold left YHC in the dust and being the gentleman that he is, said it was due to running ‘downhill’.  Of course it was, it had nothing to do with YHC’s lack of stamina.


The Q’s Winkie & Ball

Woke up real early this am in preparation for this Q trying to make sure everything worked out fine. Got there and began to gather my gear to bring to the stations, when Fuse rolled up from his long journey from The B&C to help provide gear and set up.
