05.16.18 Blender Back Blast. Old Bay at the helm.

I’m posting my back-blast quickly to avoid detention and after-school work.

PAX: (17) Wedding Singer, Cheese Curd (DR from Charlotte), Left Eye, Sump Pump, Mouth, Red Roof, Scratch, Escort, Fridge, Spreadsheet, PED, Glen Ross, Geppetto, Snowman, Buschhhh, Zoolander, Old Bay (Q).

Conditions: 72* and humid.  Moist and schweaty.

Gear:  In addition to gloves and shoes, we also wear clothes at the Mutt.  Asics gel cumulus 17s, F3 mudgear Dri-Fit shirt, C9 shorts (inseam unknown), Condor Tac hat.

COP:

  • 25 SSH IC
  • 10 Grass Grabbers IC
  • 10 Prisoner Copperhead Squats
  • 10 Jiminy Crickets (at the top of merkin, explode both hands and both feet off ground – a new crowd favorite)
  • 10 Grass Grabbers IC
  • 10 Prisoner Copperhead Squats
  • 10 Jiminy Crickets

Thang 1: Count off by 2s, form 2 single file lines for 1 mile SCOUT RUN.

  • Indian Run formation, mosey, PAX in front sprints ahead for a 10 count, returns back to formation, high-fives the next PAX in front, and goes to the 6.  The next PAX in front sprints ahead for a 10 count, and then returns to formation.  1 mile around the mean streets of Holy Trinity.

Thang 2: Round the clock Merkins.

  • Everyone grab some curb in the front of HT.  Both hands up on curb for incline merkins (5), rotate so left hand and left foot up on curb for offset merkins (5), rotate so both feet up on curb for derkins (5), rotate so right hand and right foot up on curb for offset merkins (5).  The mumblechatter and recovery positions confirmed that this was a good one, so lets do it again!

Thang 3:  Mosey to the coupon garden and circle up.  What’s it called?  Ciabatta?  Tabata?  Falafel?  Whatevs.  45 seconds of work, 15 seconds of rest.

  • Thrusters, curls, flutter kicks, jump-over-coupon Bobby Hurleys, thrusters, curls, flutter kicks, big boy situps, coupons get-ups (not a crowd favorite), American Hammers (ode to Diablo), and bench presses.  Aaaaaaaaaaand TIME.

COR, NOR.  Announcements:  HDHH moving to Gerstle’s, Transportation available to Lexington on Saturdays, everything else on Slack?  Intentions for people near and far struggling with health.  I took us out with a few words of gratitude to our Sky-Q.  I’m trying to get better at being grateful for all I have been given in this life, and to stop worrying so much about 10 years down the road.  The mistakes my kids or friends or co-workers make are not as big of a deal as I can make them out to be.  This group has been really good at teaching me to live more in the moment, and for that, I am grateful.  I’m grateful for all of you boys.  The Gloom is exactly where we need to be.  So that we can shine our light for each other.

Oh, and Red Roof left some of his man-essence at the Mutt.  Looks kinda like Darth Vader banged our shovel flag.  I’m also grateful for that.
