Nothing beats a workout in the pouring down rain – especially when it’s mid-60s outside. And yes, for those eagle eyes my pre-blast from yesterday that had the weather forecast was from Miami – not Louisville. Not sure it fooled anyone though.
Gear included a single layer for the first time in 2022 – it felt great to not be slowed down by multiple layers of clothes.
As I was driving to Posh, the rain started to come down. So I arrived and went ahead and set up under the pavilion where the following PAX joined me:
- Jitterbug (R)
- Ladybird (R)
- Fertile Myrtle
- Stick Up
- Jolly Rancher (Q)
Always great to have more than the Site Q join me on a raining day – so thanks, PAX, for making the effort and embracing the suck.
Time was called and I provided the disclaimer [I think?] and went straight into the COP, which included the standard Jolly Rancher fanfare of:
- Grass Grabbers
- Downward Dog + Runners Stretches
- Toy Soldiers
- Mosey around the spray ground parking lot
The Thang 1 – Ladder for Arm Day:
I pulled this weinke board from my cache because it felt like it’d be a good one to do with the rain. So, we stayed under the pavilion for the ladder work, but then for each rung we set out for a mosey around the spray ground parking lot – with the option to cut it in half if you wanted [which I did a few times].
Ladder consisted of:
- 5x – Manmakers
- 10x – Coupon Swings
- 15x – Coupon Merkins
- 20x – Dips
- 25x – Whoops, this one was missed as Jitterbug noted. Freebie.
- 30x – Skull Crushers
- 35x – Overhead Presses
- 40x – Coupon Squats
Again, after each set you’d do a lap. Then come back and start from the bottom and then another lap, etc., etc.
We ended with a few minutes early to do a round of Mary with each PAX calling their favorite. Big Boy Situps, X-Factors, Flutter Kicks, LBCs and a Plank were what was called.
Countarama, namearama, announcements and intentions. Lots of activities upcoming – including Monthly Ruck led by PK [March 26], Freed to Bleed [March 27], and Convergence at The O [April 23].
Always humbled to lead – even in the pouring rain.
Jolly Rancher out!
