25 beauts showed up to get better on a cool Monday morning. What a way to kick off the week. Here’s how it went down.
When: 01.28.2019 5:30 AM
PAX: CCR (Co-QIC); Brother at Law (Co-QIC): Juan Valdez; Black Lung; BV; Boy Band; T-Cell; Kiss by a Rose (FNG); Frank and Beans (FNG); Floppy D; Accounts Receivable; Dine and Dash; Dilly Dilly; Too Tall; Dmish; Caps Lock; Edible Arrangement; Razorback; Tampa Libra; Ludwig; PSL; Walter White; Toto; Yard Sale; Vegemite.
Tunes: An extremely eclectic mix of Weather Report, Sturgil Simpson, Drive-by Truckers, Gang of Youths, Jawbreaker, Susto, Band of Horses and Fleetwood Mac.
Warmup: Bus loop mosey with some shuffles, then everybody grab a coupon (shout out to Razorback who grabbed the large rock instead) and met at the Pavilion for a fast-paced brother WOR, which included: SSH, GMs, WMH, LBAC with lunge; RBAC with lunge; hopkicks (obviously); overhead press; seal claps; low and slow squats; low and slow merkins.
THANG: Brother at Law kicked us off with the following 12 minute super-set:
Squat and press x10; plank for remainder of minute
5 low, 5 high, 5 full curls; plank for remainder of minute
RDLs x10; plank for remainder of minute.
Do that a total of four times, then CCR tagged in.
Mosey to the bottom of the Hill for a couple of suicides. Exercises 1/3 up the hill then back to the bottom; exercises 2/3 up the hill then back to the bottom; then pull ups at the top of the hill. Here were the sets:
Set 1: 1/3 = Atomic merkins x10; 2/3 = Jump squats x10; 3/3 = 10 pullups. Flutter kix for the six.
Set 2: 1/3 = 4 count mountain merkins x10; 2/3 = jump lunges x10; 3/3 = 10 pullups. 20 more atomic merkins and WW1s for the six.
Set 3: 1/3 = 10 reverse burpees aka Grishams; 2/3 = burpees x10; 3/3 = 10 pullups. 20 mountain climber merkins and then plank for the six.
Drop off coupons and mosey to upper lot for final workout: Diagon Alleys. Shuffle and shuttle run the zig zag the diagonally striped parking lanes and at the bottom of each “stall” (for lack of a better word) do 3 merkins. My guess is there were 10-12 stalls, but I wasn’t counting.
That’s all she wrote.
Announcements: Welcome FNGs Kiss by a Rosé and Frank and Beans.
Tampa Libra confirmed that First Friday Lunches are still going strong, be there this Friday, February 1, at the Cookery at 11:30 AM. BV reminded folks to check out 4:13 Strong on Thursdays, one of the coolest things going in F3 these days.
Prayers for Black Lung’s father-in-law and their entire family as he struggles with advanced stages of cancer. I think for many of us a grandparent was the first serious death in our lives, so special prayers for Black Lung’s children especially as it can be a hard and confusing time.
I offered up my intention for the week, which was Ignatius’s Presupposition, the general theme of which is to not assume the worst in people and to instead put a good interpretation on another’s actions/statements at the outset, then work from there. Helpful lesson in these times and something I often forget.
Always an honor to lead.
