PAX: Life Champ, Foggy Pirate, Leatherneck, Venus, Erector Set, En Fuego, Cathy
QIC: En Fuego
Six other PAX braved an En Fuego VQ – arriving to a 46 degree gloom under some breezy skies. Mumble chatter begins with PAX discussing all time worst VQs and the corresponding exercises. YHC’s mind starts sweating as the lists are tossed out – hearing the sounds of exercises about to be partaken. Alas, too late to rewrite the script, the 5:30 bell tolls and we’re off. Here’s what we did:
Quick mosey followed by COP: SSH, WMH, GMs and Scorpion Stretch. YHC instructs that today’s theme is the Second F – and from this point forward you won’t do another exercise without your partner. With that, commence fireman’s carry mosey to the soccer field:
Partner 1 begins suicide utilizing length of soccer field – 1/3rd, 2/3rd and full length with one burpee, two burpees, three burpees at the respective stops. The Second F twist is Partner 1 never takes their eyes off Partner 2, always facing Partner throughout length of suicide (so half the suicide is backwards run).
Partner 2 commences the following, with Partners flapjacking until the below is complete:
- 100 Burpees
- 100 Jump Squats
- 100 Merkins
- 100 Lunges
- 100 LBCs
Following mumber chatter consensus on a growing disdain for backwards running, we’re all in and commence fireman carry mosey back to parking lot. YHC later realizes VQ lesson #1 – never go back to initial place of COP until it’s officially Mary time – because we aren’t there yet.
With same Partners grab a parking spot lane – wheelbarrow across lot to opposite parking block in your lane. Partner 1 completes 5 urkins followed by 5 derkins while Partner 2 performs back and forth jump over parking block until Partner 1 completes. Flapjack and R&R x 3.
Slight mosey back to initial COT spot – confusion reigns again with PAX thinking it’s over (confirming VQ lesson #1 a second time). Nope, we’ve got 3 minutes for Mary’s – where we complete group ABCs recited around the horn at a level slightly ahead of 3-year old’s pace followed by a plank closeout. VQ officially a wrap.
COT: TAP for Leatherneck’s brother-n-law, T-Cell and Leatherneck with babies forthcoming and Cathy’s in-laws both battling pneumonia.
Great job to each of the PAX – 1.65 miles total on the suicides. Thankful and am appreciative for the opportunity to lead and work alongside you!
