10 Pax, including one hard-working 2.0 posted on a glorious Saturday morning. This weather is truly amazing.
Mission and disclaimer – check – and thank you for coming out.
W/U – SSH X 15 IC; AMERICAN HAMMER X 15IC; IW X15 IC; MERKIN – X 10 IC.
YHC had a basketball in hand and we headed out in search of Greentown Park. A properly prepared Q probably would have done a drive by to confirm location of a never-visited park, but…
Few pain station stops along the way:
- Jack Webb x 5 IC
- SSH x 15 IC
- Merkin x 10 IC
@plumblee_drew ran by at one point, presumably at the end of 20 mile solo run. Seemed a little like he’d been caught cheating on us. Carry on….
Continued moseying to where Google Maps said the park was, but instead were surrounded by village houses. Hmmm…a little scramble running and we finally found it and headed to the basketball court.
Dice and Basketball:
1 Numbered die and 1 colored die from a board game (10 sided – 5 colors x 2 each).
- COLOR REPRESENTS EXERCISE
- PURPLE – BURPEE
- BLUE – LBC
- YELLOW – SPRINT
- RED – MONKEY HUMPERS
- GREEN – PATTY CAKE MERKINS
- NUMBER IS BASE NUMBER
- 1 PAX ROLLS BOTH DICE AND THEN SHOOTS FREE THROW.
- MAKE – CUT IN HALF
- MISS – MULTIPLY TIMES ITSELF.
So for example – 4 and Purple would start as 4 burpees. Same Pax then shoots a free throw. Make = group only has to do 2 burpees. Miss = group has to do 16 burpees (4×4). So worst case potential for 36 of one exercise, including burpees.
Clearly, we could not field a basketball team. WE MISSED A LOT OF FREE THROWS. Unfortunately the color die seemed to be loaded heavy on yellow = sprints. Originally I just threw this in to break things up. But instead, twice we hit 6 yellow and missed the free throw and had to run 36 full court sprints (18 round trip).
We got about (15) rounds of the game in and then headed out.
Mosey back – pain stations along the way – Plank Jacks -> Mosey -> Tempo Squat -> Mosey -> Lunge Walk -> Mosey back to Circle.
MARY: Big Boys x 15 OYO, Heels to Heaven x 10 IC; Dolly x 10 IC; Rosalita x 10 IC; J-Lo x 10 IC; 60 second plank. Recover Recover.
Announcements – Mrs. Almond Joy with baby #4 on the way (December).
Prayers – IceMan – tough day at work yesterday with heavy layoffs. TAPs to those affected.
Happy Father’s Day weekend. It’s hard work that we do – and oftentimes unnoticed. Keep up the mission and set good examples. Support and correct where appropriate. Love them always. Time goes fast. And if you’re able, tell your father that you love him.
Humbled to be a part of this great organization. Have a great weekend.
