You’ve heard of the Dora, you’ve probably known the pain of a Mega Dora, but do you know the Super-Mega Dora (yes, it is more than an added Super)?  Keystone has said to me that YHC love pyramids so much that YHC might as well be Egyptian, amidst, of course, the cultural whirl of my other workouts.  The Super-Mega Dora is a Mega Dora in a pyramid.

Fear me.  I am the Pharaoh of the Dora.

The Thang:

Well, it was completely in an utter downpour when we got there.  For once, YHC was merciful upon the PAX, and we spent the entire workout (COT included), under the picnic shelter.  For the warm up, we did the following:

30x SSH, IC, and (because I can)

15x Mexican Squats OYO.

Indeed, it is not a Tiny Dancer workout without the unreasonable proliferation of Mexican Squats.  Anyhow,  we moved up to the picnic shelter, which I still can’t stop calling the pavilion.  Starting there, we did the following:

50x Burpies

100x Merkins

150x Lunges

200x Squats

250x Flutter Kicks

300x LBCs

And back down again.  Now, YHC made this workout unique with two aspects.  First, it was a ‘classic Dora’, or it was made of classic exercises.  Secondly, because it was a classic Dora, it was done to classical music.  YHC made the playlist the night before, and, unfortunately forgot to add the Ride of the Valkyries, which I’m sure would have brought down a hailfire of mumblechatter.

Due to the utter downpour, several pairs of socks were ruined, but what it the rain for, after all?  By the way, for those of you wondering, the playlist was made up of the following Classical Tunes:

Mars, Bringer of War (Holst)

1812 Overture (Tchaikovsky)

The New World, 4th movement [not bowel] (Dvorak)

Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity (Holst)

Everything After:

Buy a brick from Nepal!  Yes, you just heard that, and no it is not one of my incessant multi/anti-culture things.  This is for one of our brothers, Sherpa, who leads the F3 workout in Kathmandu, Nepal.  Buy a brick from him (or other distributers.  In the case of Powder Keg, I believe it’s Seal, though that might be wrong), and support your brothers across the world.  You will carry this brick to the Brick Convergence in support of Sherpa and the our other brothers in Kathmandu.  This Convergence will be on the 14th of November, which is, coincidentally, the same day as the Hope Relay.

Now, here is a challenge for all of you who aren’t Triple Hates.  The Mayor of Pickens County has asked us (I don’t think us specifically, but men in general), to spend time mentoring at-risk young men.  All this takes is a 30 minute breakfast or lunch once a week.  Even though I can’t exactly do this myself, I really want to encourage you guys to do this.  The effect that my mentors have had one me because they have spends an hour talking to me over lunch have been huge, and you can do the same for others.

MARKET MADNESS WEDNESDAY!!!  Come to Easley the pseudo-Powder Keg workout

Prayers for Auggie, a 4 year-old adopted special-needs child from the Ukraine.  He has gained five pounds and now weighs 13 lbs.  This is both a prayer request and a praise report.
