11 Pax showed up to learn about BLIMPS
Pax: Sump Pump, Buusccchhhh, Grinder, Mad Cow, Jordy, PED, DiGiorno, Left Eye, Butcher, Glenn Ross, Spreadsheet (Q)
Weather. Low 30’s. Snow flurries would make a few appearances
Attire (for Zoo): Running tights, athletic pants, long sleeve and short sleeve dry fit shirt, hooded sweatshirt, gloves, ear-warmers, socks(2 pair), and trail shoes
Started with a mosey around the school to the big parking lot for COP:
All in cadence:
The curly stretch. I recall this from a spinal tap q. I believe Curly must have debuted it a while back, but I missed his q. How is Curly? Taurine have you seen him? Wait, where is Taurine and where is KV?
Cherry pickers slow x 15
Kendra Newmans small and large, forwards and backwards.
Bobby Hurley x 15. We needed something for March Madness! GO CARDS!
Next it was time for BLIMPS with a partner, slightly modified.
Partner 1 runs the from the curb to the portico, 20 SSH, then back to relieve partner 2.
Partner 2 works on the BLIMPS. Complete the following as a team
Burpees = 100
Lunges = 200 each leg
Imperial Walkers = 300 each leg
Merkins = 100
Plankjacks = 200
Squats = 300
Q took the odd man out and did half of the reps solo. (CI – my burpee form is improving…..) My spreadsheet formula was clearly wrong on estimating time to complete BLIMPS. I called an audible on the reps for the last few sets so we could get in some Mary.
Merkins is now 50
Plankjacks is now 100
Squats is now 150
Pax finished up and we moseyed over to the back parking lot for Mary.
Mary: all in cadence
Flutter kicks x10
Lbcs x 10
Lbfc x 10. Little baby flutter crunches. I wanted something new and I found this on the F3 website. I had a little trouble counting out loud while doing this. Based on the chatter the PAX really enjoyed this. Sorry – Not Sorry…. This will make an appearance at my next q!
We circled up, announcements, intentions, and went on to make it a great day. Thanks for letting me lead today!
Buuuussscch, Grinder, Mad Cow, and others that reminded me of the running pre blast comment. I did confirm the pre blast said “no long runs”. I would say that is very different from many short runs. I did manage to have over 6,000 steps when I got home. #wedontgetupforeasy #getbetter
Thank you HIMS for letting me lead today. I’ll be back to lead again later this month!! SYITG
