Eleven emerged to celebrate YHC’s 40th Flag Day Eve with a beatdown that went something like this:
Mosey to left field on Field 1 for COP: Hammer Dance x20 IC, Windmills x10 IC, Upright APDs x8(?) IC, Mariah Careys x10 each leg IC, Men At Work x20 IC. In between each set, 5 walkout Merkins OYO.
Mosey to the shotput pad for Sally.
Mosey to the track for Triple Check: Crawl Bear up hill, Hello Dollys, LBCs.
Mosey to the midpoint between the softball fields for Lindsay: Merkins and Broad Jumps toward the third baseline of Field 2.
Mosey to the hill. Bear crawl halfway up and plank, incline Merkins IC x5, rotate 90 degrees, Merkins IC x5, rotate 90 degrees, decline Merkins IC x5, rotate 90 degrees, Merkins IC x5, bear crawl to top of hill.
Mosey to the other side of the track. Merkin ROF, WWII situps x10 IC, M.C. American Hammers x20 IC, Primo-led Marge/Homer/Single-Leg Dollys.
Mosey back to the flag for COT.
YHC plans what he thinks is more than 45 minutes, and the PAX just crushes it. PAX still needs to work on Upright APDs, though – they haven’t made it through a full set yet.
Themes for the workout today were humping the air, YHC’s personal challenges (Sally, Merkin Challenge, Crawl Bear up that hill), and indestructibility of the Soundfreaq Soundkick: https://www.amazon.com/Soundfreaq-SFQ-04-Sound-Bluetooth-speaker/dp/B007XOQI4S The speaker survived being run over by a smiling woman in a Buick during the COT. Polls open at 7, ma’am.
Props to Cake who continues to post in a hooded sweatshirt. He is from Roanoke, which is halfway to Mouth of Wilson.
During the Lindsay, PAX spotted a lawnmower being brought to the softball fields. Alas, it was only a tractor for dragging the dirt infield. “We just have about 5 more minutes, sir.” “I gotta drag this field.” Ok…
Thanks to Rosie for introducing Sally and bear crawl/Merkin up the hill, FlipDawg for inventing the M.C. American Hammer on the fly this morning, Primo (Charlotte) for leading the Marge/Homer/Single-Leg Dollys, and Toga for lending the SF. Happy Birthday to Gumbo’s 2.0.
Sally is the name of YHC’s new puppy. The M and 2.0 threatened to change her name, but couldn’t decide on a new name, so her name at the vet is Sally For Now.
West End lunch is Fridays at noon at Whole Foods.
