Premature Activities

Look Out Below, Lt. Dangle, Hot For Teacher, My Two Dads and RoadTrip logged a little over 3 ruck : shuffle miles.  Squid and his secret life as a day runner was a topic of discussion.  Although, nothing was confirmed because we don’t think F3ers exist after sun-up.  It’s kind of like seeing your elementary school teacher at Walmart…wait you actually leave the school?

Whisper, Pet Stain and Name Your Own Price Tool opted for a 5 mile Monday Mosey in lieu of a RT model molding beat down.  They are too sexy for their shirt and this WO.

Conditions

A moist 48 degrees and slightly overcast.  Just damp enough to leave all the PAX wet.

Mission and Disclaimer

Maybe I said it, maybe I didn’t.  You had to be there.

Warm-up

  • SSH x …coming in hot.  Hey Church Lady got a new ride, no wait, that’s Ponch.  He must be in hot pursuit of some burpees…so 5 Burpees OYO
  • Hillbilly x 20 IC + 5 burpees OYO
  • Windmill x 20 IC What’s next Butterbean?  You heard him…5 Burpees OYO
  • Bear Crawl to the 1st stop sign – Academy Award goes to Runoff for completing this task sans gloves.  I’m pretty sure he’s having Hamburger Helper for dinner tonight.  Don’t go if you are invited.

Mosey to the Stop sign and take a left to The Wall (or a right, thanks Squid – I struggle with cardinal directions in the dark) – when you get there pick up a 6

Find a spot on the wall for 11’s (Squat / Wall Jumps).  Thunder, feel the thunder. Lightening and the thunder, thun-da.  The thighs were bangin’ but no shins were harmed during this exercise.  Wall Sit as we wait on the 6.

Mosey to the Patio by the cul-de sac.  What patio?  The one by the cul-de-sac.  What cul-de-sac?  Next we see Squid being chased with a broom off of Mr. Wilson’s patio at the end of the cul-de-sac.  Wrong patio.  I’m talking about The Brickyard, the Pumpkin Patch, The Christmas Tree Lot, whatever.

11’s 1 Merkin / 4 count Plank Jack…remain in plank position for the duration of this exercise.  This one was a real crowd pleaser, especially if you like silence……………………………………………………………….There was a lot of shakin’ but no rattle and rolls…speaking of rolls, I could go for a basket of honey butter rolls right about now.  But seems like I remember Whisper talking about an article about shakin’…on second thought, maybe I’m thinking of something else. Anyway, no teeth were injured during this exercise.

So far Squid was delighted with the creativity and varied selection of today’s Q…but I know him…he’s like Brer Rabbit.  Do what ever you want, just don’t throw him in the briar patch…or in this case don’t make him run or do burpees.  OK (wink, wink).  Head to the deserted cul-de-sac for burpee bookends.  11’s style, but with 7’s.  1 Burpee, run to the end of the cul-de-sac for 7 burpees (or 6 burpees, thanks MJ – I can’t count in the dark without an abacus).  I didn’t see or hear Mayo, but I’m pretty sure LOB got a back door bobcat.  Might have been Soccer Mom or it might have been a real bobcat.  And some PAX stayed at the end of the dark cul-de-sac for a looooong time.  But, that’s OK, they’re just trying to further their career.    YHC tried to deflate Deflated, but he kept inflating and cooperating.  Who asked about Deflated anyway?  Deez did.

Mosey back to the speed hump and find a bench…or a bitch if you are here for the undercover sting operation of…you guessed it…another set of 11’s – Dip / Derkins.  MJ and LOB disappeared behind the Ice Cream Station looking for “cherries” and “whip cream.”  I think that was code for Short Barrel and ATM.  But they could only find whip cream.  I guess they lost the cherries.  #Team Dessert.  All the while Hot for Teacher was just looking for a teacher discount and Goose Egg was just looking for 1 or 2 points.  Sammy got a ride in a panel van.  And Lt. Dangle…well he was just providing “backup,” if you know what I mean.  YHC interrupted this exercise to mosey to the flags to ensure Mary gets some much needed attention because she feels neglected in the mornings.

BBSU & LBCs on a 1:4 ratio up to 5 and the bell rings for Hot for Teacher and Deflated to get to class.  That’s all I got.  That’s all you got.

On a more serious note, My parents are in their 80s, have multiple health issues and are openly ready for life on the other side, almost to the point that they have given up on their earthly life.  But while channel surfing thru my 19 antenna channels, I landed on a religious broadcast talk show just long enough to hear the words of the host…”Don’t be so focused on where you are going, that you forget where you are.”  Those words hit home as he explained, don’t be so ready to get to heaven, that you forget that you still have a purpose on earth for as long as you are here.   Those were perfect words at a perfect time.  I have shared this with my parents in hopes they will have a change of attitude and hope you can find use in these words as well.

As always, it was a pleasure.  SYITG.  RT Out.
