7.23.2021 Back Blast-The Defender @The Patriot

0525 and as one rolls into town at zero dark thirty you’ll find downtown LaGrange lit up with the ambient glow of subtle orange lights in a city just beginning to wake up. There were workers already getting after it watering plants, cleaning up and putting their spit shine touch on it to keep Boss Hog pleased and comforted to know that passers by would appreciate the beauty of a town fresh out of Mayberry. Close your eyes, envision a slice of heaven, breathe in the smell of fresh air, thankful that the smell isn’t that of The County where the smell of ripe garbage and used chicken grease still looms from the remnants of the church picnic from the week prior. AND…It’s Friday!!! Yup, it’s going to be a good day! I would make it my duty to do a little exploration ITG and bring these PAX with me:

Hardley, Refi, Focker, Swag, Boss Hog (R,R) Ruby (R), Shadtree, BigBird (QIC)

Disclaimer was given and…Slaughter Start-5 Boyos oyo. Mosey to the corner of the courthouse…5 boyos. Mosey to the next corner…5 boyos….bring it back to Colonel William Oldham for 5 more burpees. Good warm up boys!!

COP: SSH with half at double time. Abe Vagodas, Grass Grabbers, Runners Stretch RoL and RR, bring the leg through and sit on it for Pigeon Stretch. Rinse and repeat-o but with er’y thing on the Left. 5 inchworms OYO with a Merkin at the plank.

Next Thang; Mosey down S 1st St and hang a R down Yager Ave and then hang a L behind the Long John Silvers for….Tabata…

Tabata: 20 seconds on 10 seconds off for 8 rounds… Thunderstruck in the background putting in some Mountain Climber work.

Recover and saunter over to Heartbreak Hill for a little Native American Run up the thief of souls to the upper lot where we would catch our breath, saunter to the lower lot and get in The Thang.

The Thang: 11’s with Merkins and Jump Squats.

Mosey back to The Colonel to bring it full circle….er, um square and try to get in a Jack Webb of 1 box jump to 4 dips. YHC would get about half way through. Focker and Ruby said they were right at finish when time was called for some Mary. Sorry fellas…ya’ll’s beasts anyway…speaking of Ruby, he wore the most fantastic shirt that he claims was just accidental that he woke up in. But when you wear a shirt that says, “Don’t Pho-get the Siracha,” there’s nothing accidental…But rest assured, Ruby brought the spicy!

Little time for some Mary: Bird: Scissors, Ruby: Australian Snow Angels, Shadetree: burpees for Holy Roller and Swag: LBCs…time was called.

Circled up for COR, NOR & COT. Made some announcements and said some intentions. Thanked the Sky Q for the prospect of another day. Asked that he let our victories be others’ inspiration and that we may be a light to those that are in the darkness. Closed out with an Our Father.

Thanks my dudes for making it out!!

Until next time…
