Flash QIC

3 men (HH,EE&GJ) arrived @ 0600 in the gloom of Outland for an early morning run to be joined by 4 more for the 0700 beatdown.

flash mob (noun): a large public gathering at which people perform an unusual or seemingly random act and then disperse, typically organized by means of the Internet or social media.

Most had no idea that this morning’s agenda included a serving of pain to be delivered by their own hand. As it turned out the numbers were perfect. YHC picked up the first 30 mins and the second have was split 6 ways, 5 mins each. A flash QIC so to speak

 

The Thang

CT

Rolling COP – Mosey over the the Shovel Flag – SSH x20 – IW x20 – Mosey to practice field – LBC x20 – Mosey to SVHS Track

Track Work: Running the 1/4 mile track with 4 pain stations each “corner”.

Round 1 – Merkins x20 – Scissor crunches x20 – Squats x20 – Burpees x5 Plank and hold for all PAX to cross the finish line

Round 2 – Wide Arm Merkins x20 – Back Scratchers x20 – Sister Mary Catherines x20 – Burpees x5 Plank and hold for all PAX to cross the finish line

Round 3 – Diamond Merkins x10 – Heels to Heaven x20 – One legged bridge raises x20 – Burpees x5 Plank and hold for all PAX to cross the finish line

Finish off the last minute with burpees

Here’s where we break for a 5 minute dose of pain from each of the attending PAX/QICs. I have no idea what to call some of this so it’s been explained as well as possible for each Q. Chime in where I’ve got it wrong.

The Late Show

Hit the practice field for some Water bottle football. Two teams. Team one. tosses the water bottle as far as possible in any direction and does COP while team 2 chases down the water bottle, performs select merkins and squats then sends the “bottleball” in any direction as far as possible. rinse and repeat for the duration.

Double E

Mosey over to the field house for some wall work. Everyone up against the wall for some peoples chair and air pressesx20. Balls to the wall and hold it. Back to Peoples chair more air presses then add in some speed squats. Keep it up until the time’s up.

Horse Head

Head to the parking lot for a does of Alabama Slamma. “HH I still think you made this one up”…. grab a partner. Partner 1 Merkins x15 while partner 2 counts (recovery) then switch. Each partner does 15 then 14,13,12,11 etc. This was a great Chest-o-rama and HH has a plan to make this a part of the standard beatdown at the Outland AO.

Turnpike

Back to the track for some more cardio fun. Sprint the straight aways and mosey around the corners, finish up with 15 LBCs then do it again plus 5 LBCs. This couldn’t have come at a better time. Most of the PAX were smoked and this peaked the “suck” in the beatdown. TP claims he came up with this on the fly but I think this was a calculated test to separate the men from the boys.

Drop Thrill

A request, from YHC, to get the PAX headed back in the direction of the shovel flag and a compressed availability of available time limited DT’s options a bit but he came through with flying colors leading the “native American” run back over to the SVMS disc golf course, home of the Outland shovel flag.

Glass Joe

GJ was not about to miss his turn at the wheel as he was reminding us, during the Indian run, that he still had a turn at bat. It turns out that GJ had some sort of twisted plan to shred the legs of an exhausted group of PAX by having us back peddle and karaoke around the track at the shovel flag before bringing it home with a never ending round of flutter kicks.

Moleskin: Strong work and good lead by everyone today. There was a solid combination of cardio and strength training that the PAX/Q’s put together as we went today. No one knew when their turn was going to be or what was going to happen before or after their “5 minutes of fame” as the Flash QIC and yet it came together as if it were planned for maximum results with transitions from cardio to strength and back again. This is something we will definitely do again in the future.

I liked it, I hated it, it was good stuff.

My former trainer (Byron of F3) used to every now and then do workouts on the fly. They were always the worst ones, because you didn’t have time to prepare for them. You had no idea what was coming.

This was pretty close to that.

This was a Great Workout today! The BTW included inverted Mountain Climbers IC x 10 each time. Also, LS, your pops said you
I must say the Morning Pre-Run could have been described as an Epic Fail. We had HC’s from HH and GJ to start at 0600, but HH texts us about some alarm fail and was late, then arrived and spent 2.8 miles trying to find us in the dark. Once we caught up with him, he looked like the Autobot Transformer Devastator with Green lights all around his wrists (???? #LEDSLAPBRACELETS). Then at mile 4 GJ and HH leave me and take off on a Double Elvis Carpool #TOILETTAGTEAM to find out all the local open bathrooms at 0630 are only single shooters #PARTNERPOOPING. I have no idea how it all worked out, but HH threatens to incorporate this new partner routine into next weeks workout #PLANNEDFARTSACK.
GREAT JOB TO CT FOR KNOCKING OUT THE BB WELL BEFORE THURSDAYS DEADLINE!!
Prayers Needed for DT’s Mom. Let us know if you need anything Brother!

Sorry LS! He said he sees you get out of your Truck Saturday mornings and was laughing about you are hobbling and limping around after the workouts. I am trying to get him to HC one Saturday.

Hah! Yeah, Saturdays run-o-Rama on top of Friday’s run fest plus my M,T,W w/o’s and I hit my mileage limit for the week. You get my pop out there and I will be more than impressed.

Lots of hashtags there EE – I may need a decoder ring to decipher. I think mine is busted – it just says “be sure to drink your Ovaltine”.

Yes – the pre run was a bit of a bust. Beginning with a vexatious 5PM alarm programming from the night before, I awoke at 5:55 and did not perform any of my usual Saturday morning routines. Being that I had five days worth of groceries compressed into the last two days, there was a heavy burden that I could bear no longer after about 3 miles. #partnerpoop was a fail, as the McDonalds only had a single stall which I quickly and selfishly claimed. GJ had to clench up and go across the street to the Bojangles. Dark Forces collided in the sewer pipes under Monroe Road and caused a thirteen car pileup. We still made it back in time for the workout too.

A crummy commercial…

That may have been the worst feeling I’ve ever had at mile 4. And then HH traded #IAM3RD for #IGOTTAGO.

LOL I needed a good laugh. This provided it.

It’s amazing that since Monday, a distinct peace has come over me about the situation with mom.

She is supposed to be moved to hospice this morning, hopefully I’ll be able to get to see her, but not sure if she will be ready to see anyone that soon.

Thanks for your prayers and ways you’ve all reached out to me this week.

Nothing much we can do at this point but wait and see how God works this out.

DT, still praying for Momma DT and some peace for all of you. Anytime you want to talk, I’m ready to meet for some coffee. My treat!
