Workout Date02/12/2019
A.O. The Station

10 men defied the alternating rain/mist this morning at The Station.  YHC promised to keep the running to a minimum because of the weather forecast, so off to the shelter for Tabata.

Warmup

SSH x 20 IC

IW x 20 IC

Windmills x 15 IC

The Thang

8 exercises, 20 seconds high intensity, 10 seconds rest:

Bench press

Lunges

Plank and alternate Southern Gentleman and Northern Aggressor

Squats

Plank shoulder taps

Step ups

Dips

Butt kickers

Rather than run a lap afterwards, I decide to mosey to the gazebo to see how dry it is.  Unfortunately, I took the short route cutting over the grass rather than take the walkway around, and one PAX did an involuntary slip and slide on the hill.  #QFail.  No permanent damage done, we continue on to find the gazebo fairly dry.

Same concept as before, but substituting pull ups for bench presses, high knees for step ups, and merkins for dips.  2 circuits here, paid a 10 burpee penalty for a train, and then head back to the shelter, taking the sidewalk this time.

We did 3-4 more circuits at the shelter, running a lap after each before it was time for Mary.  Another train whistle was heard, but Wax confirmed that it clearly was carrying from somewhere outside Greer and therefore did not merit any burpees.  Sounds good to me.

Mary

LBCs x 15 IC

Heels to heaven x 15 IC

Erectors x 20 IC (Valentine’s Day is coming up, after all)

Flutters x 15 IC

Plank until time is up

COT

Tabata is not the most exciting workout in the world, and it gets tough without anything to break up the grind.  But the CoT reminded me of why F3 is important and why I need to drag myself out of bed on rainy days.  Lots of heavy stuff going on with the PAX, and lots of folks needing lifting up (quote of the morning from Courtesy Flush – “Doesn’t anyone have any good news to share?”).  Prayers for everything mentioned in the circle.

For those that have not posted in a while and happen to be reading this, consider whether there is a burden you are carrying around.  Wouldn’t it be a little lighter if you shared it with your brothers?  Even if you feel you do not need to get up at zero dark thirty just to work out (yes, we can all do a push up at home), what is as important as the exercises is the support and accountability.  #Morethanaworkout.

MISSION – East bound and down, Loaded up and Trucking

DISCLAIMER – Keep your foot hard on the peddle, son, never mind them brakes. Let it all hang out ’cause we’ve got a run to make

CONDITIONS – 65 degrees and a slight mist by the dark of moon

All pre-runs were discouraged as 19 tick turds promptly escaped a maximum security fart sack to the F3 underground. Today, still wanted by LB and the Bear, they survive as soldiers of fortune.  If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you too can fight the system like a true modern day Robin Hood.  Yeeeee Haawwww

Hope you are looking for something exciting and new, because RT has been expecting a light drizzle and you.  A handful of early rising PAX witnessed the excitement of the GS Opening Ceremonies.  So much so, that we got this cruise started a couple minutes early in honor of Short Barrel as Elmer crashed the gate going 98 like a rocket sled on rails.  Eat your heart out Church Lady.

THE PREVIEWS

  • SSH x 24
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • IW x21
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • WM x 23
  • 5 Burpees OYO

YHC’s Million Dollar Man bionic ears picked up on Flo’s sarcasm as thick as bugs on a bumper when he quietly suggested 5 more burpees.  Punxsutawney Beamer perked and didn’t see his shadow, meaning the burpees lasted a little bit longer.  5 more burpees OYO.  Unfortunately the mumble chatter was gone faster than the New Coke formula and is now on America’s Most Wanted list.

A solemn Imperial Death March to the coupon pile because RT is about to put the hammer down.  NYOPT doesn’t have enough toys for everyone so just get 10 and we can share.  Some PAX can count to 10, some cannot.

THE MUST SEE LINE UP

8 Tabata Rounds – 20 seconds ON / 10 seconds OFF followed by a Convoy run up the hill to the stop sign, unload 5 burpees and return for more.

  • Curls
  • Overhead Presses
  • Jump Squats
  • Monkey Humpers
  • LBC’s

Unfortunately, we had a long way to go but a short time to get there. We only got ½ way through the Weike, so it is TO BE CONTINUED…  Return your blocks and head back to Flagtown for COT because Mary is already half way back to Texarkana.

This morning’s episode featured cameo appearances by The Commodore and Runoff. Hopefully they will be back despite their characters being killed off.  Beamer flattened the hills and straightened the curves like a Kenworth hauling logs.  Cheesesteak tried to catch a ride with the Teacher of the Year, but was quickly sent to the back of the line and has silent lunch for the rest of the week.  Lt. Dangle went home and punched his momma right in the mouth.  And all Cash Machines in the area are still out of order.

Fun was had by all and several muscle groups were exhausted. But at least you don’t have to raise your arms to adjust the rabbit ears or get out of the recliner to pick 1 of 3 channels on a turn dial.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • 23 FEB – GHS ½ Marathon & 5k – Peekaboo is putting a 5k team together.
  • 22-23 MAR – P200 – Most teams are full, but be ready if called upon
  • Urban was spotted training for the P200 at Run Club (MJ, LOB)

PRAYERS/PRAISES

  • Our country
  • Whisper’s family
  • Cheesesteak is 4/6 the way into his goal of posting 6 times this week. I pretty sure he packed his wife in a rucksack and rucked Diamond Head.  Keep It Up

Good work men. Always a pleasure to lead.   I’ll catch you on the flip-flop.  RT signing off. I’m gone.  10-4
