A pax of eight this morning for DaVille were greeted with a (debatably) full moon. Sunny and 70’ish weather made for perfect conditions to hit the track:
-Parking lot tracers
-COP including SSH, IW, hand release merkins, DQ, arm circles, LBC, maybe something else.
THANG- track work the hard way: Pax was given instructions to continue around the track at their own pace. Every 5 minutes, Q will yell out or sing something, which all pax would then bust out 25 merkins and 25 squats, then continue the journey around track. Optional stations of dips, derkins, and pullups were also pointed out. Continue until told to stop (we got 5 rounds in).
Circle run back to flag- Man in front peels off and runs back to six. Repeato.
Mary- American Hammers, hold 6 inches, and Rosalitas
BOM- Cosmo took us out.
There was a lot of time this morning to pack up and get some mumblechatter in. Opus was stepping up and giving some much needed criticism to Lab Rat on how unkempt his COP was. My response was along the lines of “what does it matter, as long as I get you doing the exercise”. His comeback was that I constantly critique him on the order of things, it would just seem fair to give that critique back. Fifteen-love, Opus….touche’
There was much discussion of the “ghost flag” this morning as well, especially from our resident #mumblechatter expert Phonics. Yeah, you read that right! He surely talks more than Lab Rat, he just does it at a lower, more pleasant volume. Discussion was heavily slanted towards which zones get to claim which pax members. There are surely some irons to wrinkle out here, but I think the idea is solid. DaVillians are also still looking for some written records that Swirly has actually been to DaVille rumor has it he has, but nobody here remembers…..
So getting around to the elephant in the room, Cosmo told me about half way thru the workout that he has news to share afterwards, so I invited him to take us out. He held out until announcements, when he took the floor and let us know that he will be leaving us in the next couple weeks and moving out to Oregon. This is a move that he and his wife have been looking forward to for some time, and he snagged a job at HP recently. Cosmo, I personally am very happy for you, but bummed that you will be leaving us at the same time. We wish you all the best of luck.
On that note, we twisted his arm into Q’ing next week at DaVille. Seems like a great reason to road trip it up here for a little send off, what say you, gentlemen? Can we get some numbers out here next week? Lab Rat is a hard commit.
Apology of the week goes to the dude on the track that I tried to EH while running with Phonics and Cosmo. With all the best intentions, in my out of breath state I’m pretty sure I just yelled at the guy.
Lab Rat apologizes.
