Running sucks.

YHC, who has had running endurance problems for the vast majority of his life, would be the first to agree.

Running workouts suck, so, the opposite of that(a 0.0), must be sunshine-and-rainbows, thus not sucking at all, right?


That was how I created the suckiest workout in all of existence.

The Warm-Up:

30x, SSH, IC

15x, Mexican Squats, OYO

The Thang:

Birthed out of my slightly mad intellect, this was a convoluted, random, this-just-came-out-of-the-meat-grinder-of-my-mind kind of workout.  Initially, I was going to use this workout on Unity Day(a German Holiday), which was in October.  It was going to be a Pearls on a String, and have lots of beer-related Oktoberfest music.

Instead, it was a 0.0 with lots of beer-related Oktoberfest music.

Erectors, 20 IC

Merkins, 21 IC

Windwill, 22 IC

WWI Sit-up, 23 IC

WWII Sit-up, 17 (was going to be 24, but the PAX decided to stop counting) IC

Shoulder Taps, 24 IC

Boxcutter, 25 IC

Reverse Boxcutter, 26 IC

Chilly Jax, 11 IC (at which point my gut felt gelatinous)

Plank Jax, 16 IC

Arm Circles, 10 IC

Clappies, 10 IC (Insert YHC briefly wanting to Splash Merlot.  Unfortunate that I forgot about the miracle drug of 10Counts, eh?)

Crab Cakes, 30 IC

Crab-Humpers, 20 IC

Monkey Humpers, 15 IC

The Dolly, 10 IC

The Dying Cockroach, 10 IC

Flutters, 10 IC

Freddy Mercuries, 10 IC

Hillbilles, 30 IC

Plank Dips, 20 OYO

Russian Twists, 20 IC

We lunge-walked to the picnic shelter.  It was here that we did 20 dips, 10 pull-ups, and 6 minutes of Mary.  After this, it was 0615, so we lunge-walked back down, and circled up.

[still surprised that this was so exhausting]



Prayers for Roid’s mother, Padre’s mother, and TPC, Gluten’s, Steamer’s, Brown Shorts’s, Youkilis’, and Quacker’s church.

I hope it’s more organized next time, and that YHC can bring the pain better than I did.  I have also reserved my anniversary Q spot, despite the fact that it is still 2 1/2 months away.

Tiny Dancer, signing off!
