12 crafty veterans turned out in the standard NoToll misty gloom for a modified game of F3 Baseball – at NoToll you have to play in the rain. This is how it went down (more or less):
Mosey to parking lot for COP
All, IC – Arm Circles (small then large, forward then backward), Hellicopter x10, SSH x 25, DQs x 12 and ISWs x 10
Count off into two teams for a game of modified F3 Baseball – Team 1 started on “offense” and Team 2 started on “defense”.
Inning 1 – Offense run around the parking lot while the Defense recorded 3 “outs” by each member completing 10 Burpees, 20 Merkins and 30 LBCs then plank position until the last defender finished. Offense and Defense switch for the bottom half of the inning.
Inning 2 – Offense – alternate skip-jumps and sprints around the parking lot; Defense – 10 CDDs, 20 jump-squats, 30 2-count flutter-kicks, then Al Gore.
Inning 3 – Offense – alternate karaoke and lunges; Defense – 10 2-count mountain climbers, 20 2-count ball dippers and 30 2-count Freddie Mercuries, then plank.
Inning 4 – Offense – alternate bearcrawl and shuffle; Defense – 10 LBCs; 20 Burpees and 30 Merkins, then AG.
Inning 5 – Offense – alternate broad-jump and sprints; Defense – 10 flutter-kicks; 20 CDDs; 30 jump-squats, then plan.
Inning 6 – Offense – run; Defense – 10 BDs; 20 FMs and 30 MCs, then AG
Entire PAX meet in the middle to finish the game with 10 Burpees.
Mosey to tennis courts for a few minutes of Mary – 10 Dr. Ws and Superman; Mosey to VSF for COT and YHC took us out.
NMC: Typical NoToll morning – always bring your mud-shoes. Thanks to such a fine PAX for posting for my VQ – much appreciated. YHC shot his wad early with a dead sprint from the VSF to the parking lot for COP – can’t beat adrenaline, but I almost couldn’t maintain the COP counts. The “field” was a little wet, but the PAX pushed forward, including enduring bear-crawls and broad-jumps (or bunny hops – J-ville’s bunny hop speed and endurance was impressive) that seem to go on forever. YHC managed to turn ISWs into a 4-count IC exercise – we will call that a work in progress. And those Dr. Ws hurt.
For those keeping score at home, the PAX completed 40 Burpees, 50 Merkins, 40 LBCs, 30 CDDs, 50 jump-squats, 40 flutter-kicks, 40 mountain climbers, 30 ball dippers and 50 Freddie Mercuries – and about 2-miles (by my watch) around the AO. Not bad for 6 innings.
Thanks for the opportunity to lead. It was an honor to step out front and lead such a strong PAX this morning. See you all back in the gloom soon.
