Titan – 2.10.21 – Choose your own adventure

Intent was to keep PAX guessing as to what was next

PAX: Cub Cadet (QIC), Michelin Man, Smoke Jumper, Vector (R-E-S-P-E-C-T), Defrost, Crawl Space, Ask Jeeves, Hambone, Siri, Rich Soil, Blue Mule, Crablegs, Black Lung, Natural Ice, Freakonomics

Conditions:  Cold enough for most of us to wear hats, but warm enough for Mule and Soil to wear shorts

Usual disclaimers and warm-up in front of the Parthenon.

Main Event:  Top of front steps of the Parthenon was considered home base.  One random pax would select an adventure, identified by letter A-F, with outcome unknown until selected.   Each adventure included a group run to a point elsewhere at Centennial Park, followed by one minute each of two different exercises.  The group released to sprint back to home base.  Upon arriving at home base, squat jump up steps and hold plank at top.   Sequence selected as follows:

  • Adventure F: Back of ellipse, formerly near women’s’ suffrage statue. Wide Arm PU, American Hammers
  • Adventure C: Open air theater near McDonalds. Route cut short by construction fence.  Dips, Leg raises
  • Adventure E: Play set / playground. Pull-ups, LBC
  • Adventure A (fan favorite): Hilltop monument across road vic dog park. Burpees, Alabama things
  • Near time, so skipped Adventures B and D; modified by doing squats, flutter kicks at home base.
  • Sprint back to AO

COT: no FNG.  Each PAX asked to share aloud one specific item of thanks / gratitude for today.  Prayer.  Coffee compliments of Hambone.

Mosey to front of WEMS for Round 1 of the Main Event:

Main Event:
Because I always base my Qs first on a playlist and then scramble to fit a workout to the theme, this week’s theme was based on colors (My daughter deemed it “pretty cool, Dad” so I had that going for me).  So 3 sets with 3 stations representing the featured colors.  Move between the stations until the 3 songs are over.  Then move on to the next set.

Playlist in italics:  So. Many. Colors.

Round 1: Front of WEMS
Little Red 🔴 Corvette – Prince
Orange 🔶 Crush – R.E.M.
Yellow 💛 – Coldplay 

Red Station (at right end of WEMS) – 30 Squats
Orange Station (steps of WEMS) – 10 burpees
Yellow Station (at left end of WEMS) – 30 squats

Round 2: the traffic circle
Green 💚 River – CCR (the band, not the dude)
Blue 🔵 Monday – New Order
Purple 💜 Haze – Jimi Hendrix 

Green Station (at stairs at WEMS traffic circle) – 40 LBCs
Blue Station (the driveway loop) – Run around circle
Purple Station (at far end of traffic circle) – 30 American Hammers

Round 3: back to parking lot
Pretty in Pink 🎀 – Psychedelic Furs
Back in Black ⚫ – AC/DC
White ⚪Lines: Grandmaster Flash

Pink Station (at end of lot with stairs) – 10 irkins
Black Station (middle of lot by the cars) – 20 lunges
White Station (at end by greenway sign) – 10 merkins


  • Welcome FNG Fancy Bikes (EH of Oatmeal who noted FB has bikes that are more expensive than his car) – other options included “Falcon” (he was his high school’s mascot) and a riff on his role as portfolio manager (I think) for State of TN.  We were feeling fancy, hence “Fancy Bikes.”

Was an honor as always to lead you men this morning.  Glad to hear appreciation for the playlist — like to expose you young un’s to the classics now and then.  Until next time . . .
