Woke up to pouring rain and 7 PAX sacked up to brave the elements while others sacked down into the fartsack. Maestro arrived on time so no Maestro Lap was called for. Instead of Daisy planned beatdown a pinch hit Q for cards in the shelter was agreed upon. Started with very brief warmup then race to the shelter to finish the warmup. Maestro selected to cut the deck so everything that followed was his responsibility. A big thanks to Pew Pew and Daisy for knowing all the exercises and raising the level of difficulty by quite a bit. Plenty of “jacking” done today – between that and the burpees and squat thrusts a pretty good time.

Solid morning temperatures almost brought out double digits. One solution was to possibly never put burp back mountain in the PB: Noted. There was possible talk of renaming monkey humpers to wapners during the ring of fire. The caterpillar was not well liked as I forgot my phone at the starting line and I wasn’t just going to “walk” back for it. Adding the new prisoner Indian run seemed like it was well hated by all= a good burn. Overall a good workout today.

Needed to give the legs a rest after Crabby PO’s Wednesday leg beat down, so what better way than a block party. YHC had planned a tire and block party for 10 or more but too many fartsackers and travelers, so some modifications were required. Decided on carrying 6 blocks among 4 PAX per team to allow for trading off of the farmer carries. Suck factor high for distance block carrying followed by Captain Insane-Os – arms will definitely be feeling it later. Got bad enough that PAX came up with alternative ways to carry the blocks. Kotter award for the day goes to Tiptoe – welcome back and see you again on Monday! There are several other Kotters out there that we need to EH back into the circle.

Very happy that we weren’t soaked in pouring rain this morning. We were hoping for several others to show but we suspect the threat of heavy rain at 40 degrees was a factor. Since we didn’t have any FNGs we (YHC) decided that a Motivator from 12 would be acceptable. I left the experience proud to have done it, but will probably stick with 10 as the extra time spent could be bette spent on smoking ourselves on other things. Indeed, my arms are smoldering after the 45s. Wish we could have had a third round. The six minutes of Mary seemed to fly by with the holds. Pleasure to lead today.

One of the best days of the year for YHC as another tax season comes to a close. Celebrated the various form numbers with exercises to each number. Piper established in warmup that he needed to leave early so as to not be confused with a walk of shame. Announcement of the 1040 workout gave Jay-Z ‘Nam-esque flashbacks. Mumblechatter was light – not sure if PAX were smoked early or if cold temperature stifled conversation. YHC definitely smoked as I try to get back into shape from the time off.

Mumble:
It was a wet one with no one thrilled about the early hand release merkins.  Complaints about unnecessary lines in the suicide were noted and ignored.  It was discovered that Piper has been working on his Bearcrawls at home.  We all need to step up our game.  1.8 miles total on the day with ~1 mile worth of suicides.  Prayed the rain would stop so some farmers could finish harvesting before planting this years crop.

Privileged to Q again. Had fun and learned a lot trying something new. Hopeful to be able to complete it with Diamond hands next time. We will see. Didn’t take long to forget about the Motivator today, maybe I’ll add one to it every time I Q. See how long it takes before I’m banned from leading. Have a great week leading up to the tourney. Should be fun to see Purdue represent the great state of Indiana. We’ll have to do something with the total points that Purdue scores during the entire tourney some day.

We had an early exit from smell good with some back issues. He referenced the walk of shame that certain universities might have something similar. The warmer weather helped the extra conditioning thrown in for the workout. Thanks to jay-z for the reminder Thursday night to mix in the burpee requirement for Friday’s workout. Special reminder for gasman’s family in their loss
