IM wins the award for the number of times he has shown up and wimped out. We do sincerely hope he feels better though. We just won’t let him forget. Mumble was light only because no one had the air capacity required to speak. Tough workout but one that we all needed. QIC mentioned he never thought he would Q a cardio only workout. Too bad he couldn’t run IMs butt into the ground! Let’s really try to continue to grow this group. After the workout we all shared lots of laughs. It made me realize how many friends I’ve made through our group. It’s a bond we need to share with others. Keep EHing. See you all Wednesday

Rain moved through early to provide a nice wet surface for today’s events. The rain itself…not much of a surprise. It happens daily! Mumble started early when it was brought up that Q’s 2.0 was 13. Stairway to 13 just sounds wrong and, trust me, it felt wrong too. Good beat down. The rain held off until the exact moment we got in our cars. Lots of fart sackers for 60 degrees. Theres no reason we can’t have 10+ every session! Man up! See you Friday!

THE GAME

One tire at the base and one at the tip of “the unit.”

Each team shoots a tennis ball with an exercise written on it into the tire. If shot is made, the other team does x2 the reps. If shot is missed, that team does x2 the reps. After each team takes a turn the tires are flipped by the PAX to the opposite side. Each PAX holds plank until it’s their turn to flip. If you were a shooter and missed you do a prisoner run around the happy place until your team is done flipping the tire.

We made it through 5 balls.

Ruck tire back to flag.

Tire ball was a fun invention and a nice change of pace. A little more down time between exercises than yours truly would have liked, but still got a good sweat going. Some mumble regarding the changing of some rules midstream. It was good to have Ghost back with us. Now we need more kotters to show up.

It was good to see Wapner back in the mix and Maestro modifying to put in the work. We still need some of you other guys to man up. We prayed for our Funeral Directors as they seem to be very busy. We pray they get the sleep they need and can post on Wednesday. Mumbles were light until we got to the wheel barrels. Shouts of, “Great idea Jay-z” and “the whole way?,” could be heard. Over all it was a good workout sure to tighten the chest.

Partner up and say with barrels to bottom of the hill, switching barrel carrier half way.

PAX1 then drops barrel and let’s it roll to partner while jogging down hill.

Rinse and repeat 6 times

Irkins and derkins with partners on the barrel

PAX1 does 20 squats

PAX2 holds barrel in Al Gore

PAX1 walks backward up hill carrying barrel and rolls it down to PAX2

Rinse and repeat 3 times

Barrel tracks back to the flag

–barrels laid on the ground like railroad tracks. First PAX picks up first barrel and moseys to the end and places it on the ground then circles back to the end of PAX line.

Disappointed 60° could only muster 8 PAX out of the fartsack. The barrels were a fun change of pace. Lots of squats made for a good quad burn. Ring of fire in derkin position proved to be awful. Lots of moaning and groaning ensued. Otherwise, not a lot of mumble chatter. “Barrels aren’t heavy, just awkward,” was one comment. “A year and a half before I see these barrels again,” was another. Good workout on a perfect morning.

Started with 1 incline merkin followed by 2 burpees. Rocky Balboas x4 at first landing followed by running the stairs. Everything except the burpees increased by one. Most completed 9 rounds which equaled 18 burpees. 8 burpees were completed at the end to finish our 26 for the day.

The Tower never disappoints. Great workout. Nothing is better than ending the workout with a Name-O-Rama! QIC #1 noticed during warmup that rather than smelling donkey crap he was smelling one of the PAX. Upon further investigation, during the Tower of Terror, it was discovered that the FNG was the originator of the smell. It was only fitting that he be named Smell Good. I To quote Piper’s advice to our newest member regarding his aroma, “Don’t let us down!” See you all Friday.

Mosey to 5 shelter houses at each stop 2 burpees were completed x5 shelters plus 2 in warmup =12 burpees for March 6th.

After the 2 burpees the following exercises were completed:

10 merkin

10 step ups each leg

10 LBC

10 dips

5 sets were completed at the first shelter and it decreased down to one set at the 5th shelter.

Crabbypo was tardy picking up the Q and so PAX were left questioning the weasel shaker up until the final minute prior to kickoff. Not much mumble chatter this morning. Once everyone got their assignment it was down to business. 12 burpees still seem very doable. We will see how we feel by the end of next week. My guess is April will not come fast enough to put an end to the burpee challenge. The final comment today came from Popeye. He told the Q that he won’t be doing burpees in Colorado. Apparently, high altitude burpees aren’t happening. See everyone Friday.

Despite QIC waking up late, DC showing up late, and Daisy having played 3 hours of basketball the night before, it was a great workout. Some mumble regarding the “warmup” stair laps prior to the main event only reassured the Q that he was bringing the heat. Those mumbles were quickly followed by another wise crack that the Q might want to show up early and run prior to the workout. All of this chatter seemed to come from one particular PAX. It must be tax season…….All in all we worked up a great sweat and finished the week strong.

It was suggested that maybe yours truly uses too much sugar in my coffee. Maybe I should provide my own next time. Gas Man didn’t disappoint as Hoops was unable to fit all of his food on one plate! We all wish Gas Man the best and look forward to his return. It is hoped that he will be able to compete with Piper. Time will tell. Good luck, Gas Man and Godspeed.

PAX were very dedicated to making themselves better today. -37° wind chills makes the fartsack even more glorious, however, 8 of us got our butts out of bed to better ourselves. It seemed like cheating by working out inside, but was definitely the smart choice. It’s brutal outside. Seemed a little different with the lights on. We all seem a little more “fit” in the dark! ….except Piper, of course. If this ever happens again, Jay-Z promises to cook breakfast following the beat down.
