YHC pulled into the parking lot at 0510 to find only Udder getting his pregame on with his foam roller. Pretty soon Wild Turkey, Focker, Cheese Curd, Witch Doctor, and site FNG No-See-Um rolled in. Cheese Curd unloaded his car of sandbags, the Pax rucked up, grabbed a sandbag each and we were off to Davie Park. When we got to Davie Park we headed to the soccer pitch with the nice field turf and circled up for some COP.
We moseyed over to a goal line and lined up for nearly 2 rounds of the following:
A quick check of the watch and we had some time to head back.
We started with the usual warm up in the parking lot, which is almost a tradition for the appetizer.
We then did a bear crawl run circuit around the school, running two corners then bear crawling.
After that we did a circuit on the track, with rows, merkins, step ups, big boys, american hammers, squats, and one team member running around the track as a timer.
For a finale we went up to the back field and did a die circuit there, where the number rolled on the die is the number of cones you had to. Number 4 was burpees, and Rigley made sure that I knew.
Moleskin (C3P0 – version 1.0)
Great seeing T1000 take on the challenge of his VQ. A month ago it seemed unthinkable but as all the other 2.0s were leading (most younger than him) he knew he couldn’t avoid it. He wrote the weinkie on his own and only asked if I thought he covered enough time (he did). He made use of the cones we had, making it even easier to execute and the dice to add some fun. My contribution was writing down a few exercises on the paper sheets he left with the cones. Clearly his processing power is significantly upgraded from this 1.0 version.

No reason to make the title Spanish other than “Wood of the morning” sounds hilarious. Running happened. Credit must therefore happen.
We will have happy hour immediately following Afternoon Delight. Unmentioned Disclaimer: workout is over at 1pm and WTH opens at 2pm. Never again. Looking forward to this becoming an official site but for now AD will only be Bottlecap’s passion project for now.
8 PAX watched some guys run into the woods then stretched their way to a better day.
Dynamic stretching to start off, then the fun began. We added bouncing ninjas and used the fence around the playground as a prop this week.

Slow Pitch took us out like a professional
In keeping with the Bushwood golf club theme and the location being MES, this morning’s workout incorporated elements of both. All exercises were either 9 or 18 reps (golf) and the primary focus was learning how to spell (elementary school).
Mosey from COT over to main school parking lot where the Bushwood Alphabet board and the Caddyshack character names were waiting for us. Each letter of the Bushwood Alphabet had a corresponding exercise and we endeavored to spell as many Character’s names as possible by doing the exercise next to each letter.
Que music on the speaker that was waiting there for us as well, which began with theme from Caddyshack, then Lunatic Fringe, Fat Bottomed Girls, and so on..
In order to get the PAX in the right frame of mind, we began by spelling out BUSHWOOD, which involved 18 reps of the following exercises:
U: Side Straddle Hops
S: Mountain Climbers
H: Speed Skaters
W: Monkey Humpers
We then ran through the school playground and around the track. The sprinklers were on, so it was a nice Waterboy touch, if I do say so myself… After the run around we all grabbed a rock and proceeded back to the workout area.
We then spelled out the name of the golf Zen master who was blessed by the Dali Lama, Ty Webb, and everyone’s favorite grounds keeper, Carl Spackler.
Took a pause from the exercises and my cadence calls and ran a set of Stingers, which is what I grew up knowing as suicides (high school mascot was a scorpion).
Back to names, spelling out the pain in the ass, puke through the sunroof, Spaulding and finishing up with the object of every young boy’s desire, Lacey Underall.
Mosey back to COT with the boards and speaker in hand, music playing loud for all to have a strong finish.
Back at COT, kept with the team effort approach. One Star led a set of 18 J Lo’s with pickle pounders, Orchid called out 18 Moroccan Night Clubs, and we wrapped up with Flo leading 18 final Merkins.
One Star, Tanyatine, Orchid, and I went for coffee afterward. Encourage others to join in the future, as that’s a nice 20 min of generally good conversation.
I enjoyed my first Q, hoping it wasn’t too out there…
