Hoedown with the Fireman


9 hardened veterans in total showed up at Hoedown this morning.  Thankfully the rain ended last night and the morning was actually not bad at 69 degrees and humid.

The Fireman started things off promptly at 5:30 which seemed to surprise Garbage Plate and Bodos.

The hoedown went a little something like this:

Warm up:  20 Side Straddle hops, 20 Don Quixotes, 20 Arm Circles and 20 Mercans

Mosey to one of the nearby parking lot on Forest asked the PAX the last time the Jets won a SuperBowl and the answer was 1969.  As a result we did 19 Carolina dry docks, 19 jump squats, 19 WWIIs and 69 2 count flutter kicks.  Then we did 19 LBCs, 19 burpees (elicited a few groans), 19 flutter kicks and 69 jump squats.  .

Mosey to Lindsay Drive.  Asked Trivia question about Mets loss to Nats of 25-4 (2nd worst loss in Mets history).  In honor of the Mets 4 runs, I has the PAX do a 4 by 4 4 corner style. This consists of 4 merkins and 4 2 count mountain climbers at the top of Lindsey do down 2/3 the way to another 4 by 4 go across the road 4 by 4 to the top again 4 by 4.  Repeat to 4 8 by 8s and then 4 12 by 12s.

Mosey to front of Tuckahoe for 100 PLTs (partner leg toss).  Then mosey to nearby parking lot for back and forth lunges followed by American hammers – 25, merkin ring of fire, HoneyDo led burpees and the last 15 side straddle hops.

Numberama followed by names, etc. and a prayer at the end by the Fireman.


Puppy pile – 8/25

CSOP (Completely stupid and utterly pointless) at Forest Hill – Viral I think you said 10/20 but correct me on that if needed

Labor Day Convergence

Three Lakes Park event

I had a good time Q’ing for the first time.  Admittedly I did not sleep much as I kept playing scenarios and what ifs in my head.  Great job PAX and look forward to Qing again in the near future.

  1. Great Q, Fireman Ed. We were always moving and the merkin/burpee count got pretty high; then the lunges at the end for a burn in the legs too. Well done, I look forward to the next one!

  2. Solid VQ Fireman Ed. Way to drop the 19 Burpees on us for the 4 corners. Glad you keep posting with us crazy guys.

  3. Thanks! It went better than I thought it would. Sugar Sock (not Sigar Shock – oops) gave me the info so now I can sign up to Q.

  4. Way to go, FE. Sorry to miss this one.

    Tossing and turning before the VQ? There’s more than a few of us who did that and still do that. Welcome to the Q Sheet!
