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.

Moleskin:

Workout named in honor of Indiana’s spectacular shooting performance from last night. YHC planned to honor the winner of last night’s game with BOILERS or HOOSIERS, but determined that neither team deserved recognition so called for a block party instead. Daisy rightly suggested the best way to acknowledge the game that just happened was to call it a BRICK party. PAX fortunate that it wasn’t 5 degrees warmer or it would’ve been much more miserable. Farmer carries made it plenty uncomfortable though. Needed a “break” in the middle to give the arms a rest and heat the legs back up from Monday’s workout. Back for more bricks and learned that new exercise hot potato would not be possible to 46 reps without serious injury. Good to have Bambi back with us this morning. Today’s words of wisdom from Crabby PO as he scraped the snow and ice off of his block – “if you take care of your block, it will take care of you”.

Lots of lunges today.  Definitely felt the burn.  The Burpee Dans covered a lot of ground, maybe to much.  Really felt the burn during the squats on Dora.  Q forgot his cheat sheet so missed out on a couple of lunge exercises, some may say thats a good thing.  Reminder of the F2 event tomorrow at Jay-Z’s home.

Cold and windy morning had the PAX coming out of their cars slowly. When everyone got out around 5:29 it became apparent we were without Q. Took a Maestro lap to give the Q time but it only summoned its namesake. Group put their collective slowly processing heads together to come up with a workout during stretching. First priority was to try to get out of the wind, so mosey to bottom of stairs. Run to the top of the stairs was like a smack in the face with the wind. Discovered there that MC Hammer must’ve loaned his parachute pants to Piper. First lap of Blackjack was to 10-29 but that modified to the caboose. Some PAX modified arm work to leg work after a particularly tough arm week. Even with modified run close to 2 miles for the workout. Group will be giving consideration over the weekend to appropriate punishment for fartsacked Q.

Triple Triple Triple – Revisited

8 PAX posted in the moist 47F gloom for a Triple Triple Triple beatdown.

Warmup:
Mosey the long way in the rain to the shelter large shelter house

Thang: Triple Triple Triple

Round 2: Butkis, Flutter Kicks, Curb Alberts
Round 3: Plank, LBAC’s, Lunges

Bonus Round: Chumbawampee

Cooldown:

Mosey long way back to flag.  No Mary.

Mumble:
It was a moist morning so decided to do the Triple in the large shelter house.  No one wanted to get out of their cars this morning but 8 of us popped out at 5:29.  During round 1 it was quickly realized shoulders hadn’t recovered from the last few workouts.  Lots of mumbles during flutter kicks with even more mumbles during little baby arm circles.  Discussion ensued on whether the extra 10lbs of water in our shirts was making it harder or if it sucked this bad last time.  Bonus round had everyone sucking for air.

Moleskin:

Q scouted location ahead of time and yesterday’s heat wave melted enough snow off of the road to allow for a circuit around the petting zoo. Shovel flag came in handy at the tip to clear some snow for box jumps and step ups. Clear and calm morning was quickly forgotten working through a simple but quite effective workout with a surprising amount of cardio. One PAX was even sighted stripping off an outer layer but thankfully stopped there. Enjoyed the last reprieve before the weather rolls in – will be a fun one on Monday!

Mumble:  Definitely a cold morning but luckily had no wind.  Great turnout with 12 guys.  Almost doubled the temperature with the number of men that showed up.  Heavy complaining during the HIIT until around 5 or so.  Either everyone just gave up and settled into the inevitable or just rain out of air to complain.
