Hot Potato Q, an Abacus Sighting, and a Crazy Car


8 Crazy guys showed up for a rain soaked workout this morning!  Gumbo was supposed to Q, but the M and 2.0’s got sick in the middle of the night.  Gumbo texted Spit who was already up because of Baby Spit and Hot potato was called.  Hope the Gumbo family is feeling much better soon!

Spit took the beginning — mosey around the church with 5 merkins every so often to break up the run a little
COP — in no particular order
IJR, Merkins, LBC’s, Arm Circles, DQ, Helicopters, Flutterkicks Crab cakes, Imperial Walkers, Dying Cockroach

Pass off to Hardywood
10 merkins, run around a loop of the parking lot
Next loop around do 10 merkins, add 20 squats
Next loop around  do 10 merkins, 20 squats, 30 WW2 situps
Next loop around do 10 merkins, 20 squats, 30 ww2 situps, 40 flutterkicks

Pass off to Vinny
A brand new exercise!!  with a cool name.
It is called the Windsor Farms Do-Si-Do
Brief description — Partner up.  1st partner holds 6 inches and holds other partners ankles while the other partner completes 10 merkins, repeato with 15 merkins and then 15 merkins again.

Pass off to Phonics
11’s — 1 upright alabama prom date on bench, 10 burpees
Rinse and repeat (literally)

Pass off to Opus
5 Skull Crushers each leg, 5 dips, 5 derkins
10 skull crushers each leg, 10 dips, 10 derkins

Numbers, names, announcements
Tomorrow is Puppy Pile at 7:05 Dogwood Dell — all bring frisbees!

Last night there was a mysterious message from Phonics saying that there was a guy coming to the Creek today, but he needed some shoes.  size 11 or 12.  I thought it was an FNG — if it had been his name would have been Joe Jackson.  Anyways it turned out to be none other than Abacus who was not wearing normal workout clothes, but did have tennis shoes on from somewhere.  He showed up in a Tesla (his employer) — more on that later…

Workout was fun and difficult, but extremely wet.  It rained and then it rained some more.  and some more.  YHC was wringing his shirt and shorts out every few minutes.  At least YHC was not sweating to death…

Nice having Abacus, Vinny and Hardywood there from other venues!  Come back any time!

On to the Car.
Afterwards, Abacus asked if we wanted to ride in his car.  Some of us took us up on that offer.  But first, the car had to give us a demo…  see the video if you want to see something completely stupid and utterly pointless.  but also pretty cool.

So Abacus took some of us on a ride.  A few notes — going 0 to 45 in a second is quite awesome!  Having the car drive itself, also awesome, but maybe a little scary.  If Teslas are the way most cars will end up in the future, then the future will be great!  Go check one out if you ever have a chance.

Peace out,

  1. Great job fellas! Glad to have Abacus back for a day. Wish I could have stayed and road in the Tesla but duty calls.

    Thanks Vinny and Hardywood for making the trip to the north.

  2. Windsor Farms Do-Si-Do: Partner 1 lays on his back and holds six inches while holding his arms straight up at 90 degrees. Partner 2 assumes plank position with his feet in the hands of Partner 1. Partner 2 then completes (decline) merkins. Add Partner 1 flutter kicks for bonus points.
