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)
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.
