I’ve had my birthday Q planned for a little while, then the other day thought of something that sounded terrible in my head, and thought today would be a good day to unleash it on the HIM of the Garden. I did get nervous that ice may make the plan a little too dangerous. Luckily (or not depending on your point of view), there wasn’t ice to worry about.

Thang 1 – The Manmaker Mile
6 cones laid out throughout the Garden campus. Starting in the lower lot – run towards the Hill of Stolen Souls w/ coupon. Stop at each cone – 5 manmakers. Once back to the lower lot, turn back to the Baptizer and repeat the opposite way. PAX completed 60 manmakers and got a mile under their belts. Husky is a BEAST. Edward Scissorhands is quickly working his way to the front of the pack.
I expected a gap here, but there was more of a gap between the front of the pack and the back, so we improvised with some Mary while we waited for the 6 – Flutter kicks, BBS, Freddie Mercury’s – 20 each.
Thang 2 – Sprints
These are seeming to become more and more a part of a lot of weinkes at the Garden. And even though I’m slow as molasses, I like them to get your heart rate up.
We broke up in to 2 groups to space out and ran sprints between two islands – about 75 yards x 6.
Thang 3 – GoRuck Workout – I saw this the other day on a the GoRuck instagram page and thought “that sounds terrible- I should throw this in the birthday Q” this is where the record scratches and the narrator voice says, “Terrible was a gross understatement”
150 Thrusters – max 10min time limit (I didn’t alert the PAX there was a time restriction). A handfull completed the 150, all worked hard.
We still had about 5 minutes – so we called Mary… American Hammers, Gas Pumps, Shoulder Taps, some other stuff, and Huggies just had to call 10 BOYOS. Thankfully time was called right after the boyos ended.
No better way to start a birthday than ITG. Got my day started right, with a good workout and a great group of dudes. Appreciate the birthday wishes, and the push to get out and get better everyday.
