So, I have been working out with the M on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. It has been great for my push to accelerate the relationship that we have. But, I miss the Gloom badly. When Mad Cow called for an early BlackOps BEATDOWN before #TheHurt…I was on that like a fat kid on cake. Oh, the double down is fun while you are doing it but you feel it later. Especially when you have lots on the honey-do list later that day.
YHC rolled in a few minutes early to the Mutt to see the Dynamic Duo Scratch and Bean Counter. That guy Snowman is everywhere, 5 post this week is the rumor. Grinder pulled up next to me asked for rubber gloves or maybe I offered them…anyway it was a weird exchange that I won’t go into more detail about. Last night I told Buschhhhh we would be running and he pulled in like Tiger on 2 wheels…also asked for rubber gloves… seriously I am not the Health Department.
9 PAX showed up for this early BEATDOWN. Digiorno Q, Mad Cow Q, Zartan, Snowman, Buschhhhh, Grinder, Scratch, BeanCounter, GlenRoss.
No FNG’s, disclaimer was given and we were off.
Quick mosey to front corner of school for COT:
- 25 SSH IC
- Wide Leg hamstring/lower back stretch
- Runners Stretch, this is a Curly Classic. There was a Curly sighting last Tuesday, he’ll be back.
- Downward Dog with some hamstring and calf stretching, then into Cobra
YHC tried to trick everyone into running a mile. They caught on quickly, smarter than the average PAX. Headed up Leland. Every light post was Merkin Time.
- Pole 1, 25 Merkins
- Pole 2, 20 Merkins
- Pole 3, 15 Merkins
- Pole 4, 10 Merkins
Took a left on St. Matthews
Took a left on Massie
- Pole 1, 20 Copperhead Squats
- Pole 2, 15 Copperhead Squats
- Pole 3, 10 Copperhead Squats
Took a left on Cherrywood and Mario’d up to the top of the hill.
After a 10 count, YHC graciously handed the reins to Mad Cow. We did a quick mosey to the Coupons for Tabata.
All exercises 1 minute, rest for 30 seconds.
- Coupon Swings
- Coupon Presses
- Incline Merkins
- LBC’s (Zartan chose to do this with coupon, very little was heard from Z after that decision)
- Overhead Coupon Press
- Flutter Kicks
Lets just say 60 seconds is a long time.
Mad Cow decided to have us put the coupons away…we had to take the long way. Instead of the 3 steps to put them in our secret hiding spot 🤫 we took them around the school. While doing this, Zartan and Buschhhhh decided to step it up and to a mosey. As we always do, all PAX followed. We passed Geppetto on the way with the coupons and I could see an evil smile on his face…I could tell we were going to be using these coupons alot more for the 7am BEATDOWN.
Intentions were made.
One if the reason for the early BEATDOWN was for the PAX that were involved with CHIRP to #getbetter with the 1stF before they #getbetter with the 2rdF and 3ndF. I am very proud of these PAX that are taking this step in their Faith.
It is always a pleasure to be in the Gloom with all of you.
