Co-QIC: Glen Ross and Old Bay
PAX: (15) Left Eye, Tureen, Sherpa, Snowman, Tiger, Geppetto, Wendy, Sump Pump, Cowbell, Zoolander, Fridge, Noxeema Jackson, Deuce, Old Bay, Glen Ross.
As of 2 PM on 05.09, the was no Q on the calendar for the 05.10 Extender at the Mutt. Being the true HIM that I am, I waited a few hours, and then texted Glen Ross asking if there was a Q yet. I was kind of hoping that someone had already signed up. Kind of like when you offer to help someone with their mulch and you can clearly see that they are almost finished. Or when you offer to help move furniture, but you just kind of supervise. I digress. GR said we still needed a Q, so we decided to split it. A Glen Bay / Old Ross beat down was on deck. After the ass-kickery that Left Eye had dished out that morning, I had no idea what I wanted to do. That evening over a few glasses of wobbly-juice, I had a plan. Short Pre-Blast, and SYITG!
COP: mosey around school, always facing Cherrywood. Mosey up, shuffle over, Bernie Sanders back, shuffle over. 20 Grass Grabbers, 5 BOYOs, 20 Goofballs, 5 BOYOs, Downward Dog, 5 BOYOs, Al Gore with Trump claps, 50 SSH, 10 Surfees. Juices flowing. BTW, Goofballs are hilarious to watch others do.
Thang 1: bounce over to the front of the school. I couldn’t come up with a clever name, but I wanted to mix cardio and body weight stuff, You vs You.
Start at the curb across from the school:
- 50 Jump Rope. Bear Crawl halfway across lot, run to school, touch wall, run back
- 40 Plank Jacks. Bear Crawl halfway across lot, run to school, touch wall, run back
- 30 Jump Rope. Bear Crawl halfway across lot, run to school, touch wall, run back
- 20 Burpees. Bear Crawl halfway across lot, run to school, touch wall, run back
- 10 Jump Rope. Bear Crawl halfway across lot, run to school, touch wall, run back
Since no one read my pre-blast, and no one brought a GD jump rope, we will do that again. The groaning and under-your-breath “shit”s that I head were delightful.
I had a few minutes left before turning the helm over to GR, so lets mosey around the school. Stopped at each corner for a little PT. Run, 20 sumo squats, run, 20 scissor kicks, run, 15 tempo merkins. Glen Ross, tag you’re it.
GR tells everyone to head down to the coupon patio, but not to pick up any coupons. I thought he may have been delirious, but I’ll follow that man anywhere. Circle up for his new favorite, the 7 minute plank challenge. 1 minute plank, 15 sec rest, 1.5 minute plank, 15 sec rest, 2 minute plank, 15 sec rest, 1.5 minute plank, 15 sec rest, 1 minute plank, and finished. Like, smoked. The video inspiration for this 7 minute challenge can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRTKqRuQx0Q
Needless to say the traffic on YouTube spiked at 6:20 AM.
I saw he had a few minutes left, and wonder if he would call it or not. Of course not. He’s a closer. He’s Glen F’ing Ross. Ab-Webb: 1:4 big boy sit ups into LBCs. We made it to 8:32 and that was time. I saw some queasy faces ITG.
COR, NOR, BOM, Intentions. I took us out. I asked everyone to take a moment of silence, and think of one burden they carry, one thing they want to get better at, or start doing, or stop doing. Then I asked them to take another moment of silence, and focus on one thing they are supremely grateful for in their lives. God is present in both of these.
Go get after it! GR – OB
