Some call it skipping

Some call it skipping

I knew I was in for a bit of a challenge today, as I was dealing with some late night disagreements between the M and 2.0 teen, leaving
me with only 5 hours of sleep before the Q.  I was tossing and turning between the disagreement and what I was going to Q.  In the end with this group of guys it doesn’t matter, they take you at your best and your worst, which I appreciate.


  • Asked the Pax, should we go left to start or right.  Complaints started right from the beginning when folks didn’t want to go left because of the gravel, so they picked right.  Well, I really wanted to go left, but only partial, so this became a political discussion right from the beginning.
  • Mosey from the parking lot past the circle half way to the bridge and back to the circle
  • 20 Side Straddle Hops
  • 10 Imperial Walkers (cut down from 20 after Fuse looking like he wasn’t liking to do 🙂 )
  • Calf stretches
  • Upward Dog / Downward Dog
  • 10 Merkins
  • 20 Plank Jacks
  • Pants Splitters (Foot by hand) stretch

The Thang

  • Tried to ask the PAX to start with door number 1 a burpee at every tree on the right to the rock pile or
    door number two.  Since the first selection didn’t work out, they chose burpees, but since that is not what I wanted
    to do, we did what I called slow high knees to the rock pile, but some called it skipping.  This took a toll by the time
    we reached the rock pile.
  • Grab a lifting rock
  • Rifle carry to a parking spot
  • Mosey to a small hill for 7’s (Burpees on top, jump squats on bottom)
  • Mosey back to parking spaces, where we will do 4 exercises and run a lap around the parking lot.

    • 20 Mike Tysons
    • 20 Dry Docks

The Moleskin

Like I mentioned, I was super tired and distracted going into it, but you can do no wrong with this group and was able to put my distractions
and tiredness past me.  Great job gentlemen.

Thanks gentlemen for helping me provide some challenges today.
