BB 02.24.21 – Old Bay at the Blender

PAX: 16 : Gollum, Pope, Plumb Bob, Handbook, Eto, Ball Boy, Glen Ross, PED, Buschhh (R), Nugget, Tureen, Zima, DiGiorno, Peeping Tom, Flo Jo, Old Bay (Q)

Conditions: Sweet

Last night, Buschhh said he was looking to get an extra credit mile in before the Blender beat down. So naturally I poured another bourbon and said yes. Zima did too, and I think our pace was sub 6, but I’ll have to go back and check the tape.

Returned from the Mutt mile, and saw a bunch o dudes rollin in. Many regulars, but a few I didn’t recognize as I walked up. Wait a minute….Nugget? P.E.D.? Tureen? Who are these guys? Including Night Rangers, this was Tureen’s 2nd post in 12 hours, so he’s a certified 2-a-day guy. Great to see the boys in the yard, 16 was more than we ever get on a Wednesday, so I’m going over my weinke for modifications.

COP: SSH, copperhead squats, IWs, hillbillies, and tempo merkins for Buschhh.

Thang: Found this on the lexicon site last night: The Hightower. Police officer Jacob Hancher in Myrtle Beach, F3 Hightower, killed in the line of duty last October. Matthew 5:9 “blessed are the peacemakers, they will be called the children of God”. They put together a workout named after him, and it’s 5 exercises, 9 reps each.

  • 1) 9 burpees
  • 2) 9 burpees with 3 plank jacks
  • 3) 9 burpees with 3 hand release merkins
  • 4) 9 burpees with 3 jump squats
  • 5) 9 burpees with 3 plank jacks, 3 merkins, and 3 jump squats

This was all kinds of dumb, but the Mutt boys and guests got after it. Even killed mumble chatter for a minute, not an insignificant feat.

Thang 2. Split into 2 groups. 100 yard course for “20/40s”. Sprint 100 yards, gotta make it in 20 seconds. Mosey back and rest within 40 seconds. Repeat at the top of each minute for 5 minutes.

Thang 3. I was gonna do the Hightower again, but it took longer than I expected, so we did some tabata coupon work, 40 seconds work, 20 seconds rest. OH press, bent over rows, curls, bench press, thrusters, others?

Thang 4. Same groups for 3 “20/40s”.

Return coupons, and circle up for 5 Catalina Wine Makers in the coupon garden at The Mutt.


COR, NOR, Announcements, and Intentions. No intentions were raised aloud, but we are all carrying some kind of burden. I know I carry many. I took us out saying that when I dropped off the money and supplies from the Ruck at the St. John Center, there was a really strong vibe of gratitude. Not just from the staff, but the homeless men inside also just had a good look about them. It was 60 degrees and sunny, maybe they were getting cleaned up and charged up for the rest of the week, maybe I was dead wrong. I dunno. I just know that I need to continually work on perspective and gratitude. We have a great thing going here, and I’m always pumped to lead a solid bunch of men.

I’m tired.
