It was 70s and glorious at 0600 as the PAX arrived at Stonewall for a morning of childhood reminiscence.
QIC: Skid Mark
PAX: Edible Arrangement, Black Lung, Deep Dish, Hambone, Care Bear, Cowboy, Vegemite, V-Squared (late arrival from Chattanooga due to internet schedule confusion
We started with a mosey around the community center and back to the parking lot for some warm-o-rama.
WOR: SSH x30, LBACs x15 f/b, Don Quixotes x10, Imperial walkers x10, Hillbillies x10, Squats x20, Merkins x10
As it was my daughter’s 4th birthday party today, I thought we could sum up what life has been so far for a 4 year old..
Newborns go “back to sleep” and can’t really roll over – LBCs x50
Tummy Time – Reverse Snow Angels x1min
Next they try to roll over – Scorpions x10
Finally they get it – Superman – Banana – Rolling from superman position to a banana shape with legs and arms off the ground. On the Qs call.
Time to work on our pulling up from the floor to a sit/stand.
10 Headbangers, 5 pull ups EMOM x10 minutes
Next it was time to start moving:
Bearcrawls x20ft > Duck walks x20ft > Mosey x40ft then do everything in reverse (reverse mosey, reverse duckwalk, and crawlbears). Rinse and repeat x3
Bearcrawls x20ft > Mosey 20ft > Sprint x40ft, then do it all in reverse again. Rinse and repeat x3
At this point we are getting more stable on our feet. We took a mosey around the southwest corner of the park and back to the pavilion for some playtime. Children initially don’t play well together and instead do separate games on their own while standing next to each other.
30s Exercise with 10s rest alternating: AMRAP Monkey Humpers and AMRAP Picnic table prom dates (legs on a picnic table bench, back on the floor, lift the hips to the sky repeatedly)
Potty training time: Sprint 50yds from the pavillion to the port-o-potty: x5
Finally, children learn to play well together, time for a group exercise. Everybody assumed a plank position in line. The PAX at the front of the line then proceeded to do 10 rows on the climbing rope and went back to the end of the line. Rinse and repeat with 5 rows per PAX.
Mary: LBCs x15, Flutter Kicks x15, American Hammers x15, Freddy Mercury’s x15
-At this point, Foxtrot-talks-a-lot showed up to wish us well and then drove off to Portland brew.
Coffeeteria was attended by all but Vegemite…including FTTAL who seemed to show up only for the 2nd F rather than the 1st F. Welcome to V-squared who was visiting his parents in Nashville. Unfortunately, our website suggested the workout was at 0700 and he showed up a mere 50 min late. He put in some miles after coffeeteria to make up for the missed workout.
