4x4x4x4 almost…

10 fighters stormed the Atlee High School parking lot to launch into some wackiness that went something like this…

Mosey to parking lot on the other side of the school.

Mosey to the flag, 1 SSH IC…

Numerama, Namerama, Announcements, YHC took us out.

Announcements:

  • Breaking Bread – c’mon, someone step up and lead it this month
  • EH guys as the weather begins to warm up

YHC wasn’t sure what to expect since the last time he Q’d this workout nobody showed up. The PAX did not disappoint as the cars piled into the parking lot. Emoji and Kit Kat barely made it. Emoji’s car almost slammed into Lab Rat’s truck which brought out all kinds of commentary from Lab Rat like, “if he hit my truck then estrogen would have poured out his…”

YHC let Opus know that he inspired the first section of the workout. Opus likes to follow in the footsteps of HoneyDo and hand out Donkey Kicks for fun. The PAX lit those up with the bear crawls and merkins with minimal mumble chatter.

The Quarter Pounders were not pure ones in the sense that we did not repeat the exercise at each 25, 50, 75 yard lines. Lab Rat brought this to YHC’s attention when he said something like, “Wait, aren’t we supposed to be repeating the exercises.” This has been noted and will be modified the next time the Quarter Pounders are called upon to dish out some pain…

The 4x4x4x4’s seemed to do the trick and push the PAX on multiple levels. The ground was slippery and required some creativity to avoid digging a massive hole during each 4×4. YHC did not account for the full length of time that was required but that will go into the lessons learned for the future.

It was great to see Pincher back with the PAX after many months away. It is always a family reunion when someone rejoins the PAX after some time away.

It was another glorious morning in the gloom!
