The morning finally arrived, what started out shiny and new has now been put through it’s inaugural downPAINment and it went something like this…
Quick loop around the parking lot (Hair Band Mile) and circle up!
SSH x 20
IW x 25
Slow Prison Squats x 15
Manmakers x 10
Mosey to back for railslides demonstration (for non Outlanders) then mosey to the side and partner up speed/size don’t matter.
P1 runs to do railslides and back, P2 does called exercise until P1 returns, flapjack. Each round 2x
Round 1: Burpees
Round 2: Dips
Round 3: Squats
Round 3 step up/jump up
Mosey to front of school and plank up single file head to toe, wow that’s a long line, Audible! Make 2 lines! (Good call CT)
Intro to Indian Bear Crawls: (In an effort to be politically correct I heard Runstopper yell Native American)
While waiting PAX are doing merkins, The PAX at the #empanage bear crawl to the front. 2 rounds.
Next, on your six! Indian Crab Walk
While waiting PAX are doing LBC’s, #Empanage crab walks to the front. 2 rounds
Recover and grab some wall for People’s Chair! Whoa, why is Runstopper leaning in to whisper in my ear?! Q-Jack! Basically stay on the wall a loooooong time and throw your hands up in the air with some calf raises thrown in for good measure. #Nochickenlegs
Off the wall, circle back up. It’s an honor to have Jack Webb visit the launch of Overdrive!
1 merkin to 4 air presses up to 10
Flutter IC to 20
TR Q-jack to intro us to the single leg flutter & dolly
Recover and done!
So I figured if I showed up at 5:15 I would be one of the first to the AO outside of those pre-beatdown runners, never thought I would be pulling into a crowd at that time. Seems the #clowncar got there from the Arboretum in 10-15 minutes. So for all the Area51 guys who complain about distance, it’s not as far as you think! (Or Stone Cold has a Delorean with a Flux Capacitor)
While I have Q’ed at Outland a bunch of times now, today oddly felt like my first, as witnessed in the COP when I mumbled something like “Exercise posit…Ready… ugh, Move…” Why not, let’s start the Q heckling early. And thanks to CT for the loaner time piece, can’t believe I forgot my watch. #Iknowbetter
Overall a strong showing by all the PAX, I’m not sure what TR was doing at one point during partner work though, it was either Cumberland County Viaducts or Jane Fonda Yoga. #samething
Great to see HorseHead back at it after being on IR for a while and Drop Thrill and Turnpike get stronger every week. Also #Kotters to Spielberg for getting out there after a long break to help support the launch.
It was great having our Outland crew represent and I really appreciate the Area51 guys making the effort to come out and support this launch, it was humbling and an honor to see the crowd and be able to lead today! On top of all of that, a Hair Band always appreciates something like 18 & Life being sung after the 18 count while getting my phone, not sure who threw that out there though.
Thanks to TR for taking us out at the end.
