When Mac tweeted the July Q list, I noticed something odd written next to my name each time it appeared – “No BOP”.  What could this mean? No Balance of Payments? No Ban On Politics? No Business Owners Policy? Eventually, I decided he was referring to the dreaded Board of Pain, trying to subtweet me into leaving the board locked up for the month.  Initially I wanted to act rebelliously and unleash the fury of the Board, but with 80 degrees and high humidity, YHC decided to go another route.

6 men took the risk and joined me in the Gloom for what transpired:

Warm Up:

15 Imperial Walkers IC

10 Windmills IC

5 Burpees IC

One lap around the parking lot and down to the playground for the thang

Main Thang:

Was feeling the luck with seven total pax, which set the tone for our workout of Sevens:

Sevens – Pull ups, run to benches for dips.  NYOPT commented that “We don’t do enough pull ups”, which I filed away for later…

mosey to the track

Sevens – Bunny hop up the hill, Merkins at top, Big Boys at the bottom

Sevens – Hourglass run around the square of cones (sprint forward, backpedal diagonally) with exercises after each back pedal – American Hammers and Diamond Merkins

Pick up the cones and mosey back to the playground, where we each did 20 more pull ups, to appease NYOPT.  Curiously, he reversed his earlier stance on pull ups, saying “I didn’t want to do more now, i just meant in general we don’t do enough”

Mosey back to the flag for Mary when complete


YHC was dazed and confused at this point, so the exact counts evade me –

35ish LBCs IC

30ish Flutters IC

25ish Freddie Mercuries

Captain Thors up to 5×20

15ish Box cutters

Collapse in a pool of sweat – we are done


Prayers for Strange Brew’s friend who has aggressive cancer in several places

Prayers for NYOPTs son and his mission trip group

Prayers for everyone’s children, and that we would feel a burden to pray for them more


As always, it was a pleasure to lead, even if it wasn’t a BOP beatdown
