Always 70 and Sunny

Semi-Charmed kind of life


With the temperatures topping a balmy 31F, 23 of RVA’s finest gloom warriors showed up for a 45MOM beatdown.  According to legend it went something like this (more or less):

COP:  11 Imperial Walkers IC, 9 Don Quixote IC, 10 Russian Soldiers IC, 10 Burpees OYO

4 Corners.  Using the block around the school and field run to corner 1 and do 10 Burpees.  Run to corner 2 and do 10 Burpees + 20 Merkins.  Run to corner 3 and do 10 Burpees + 20 Merkins + 30 Squats.  Run to corner 4 and do 10 Burpees + 20 Merkins + 30 Squats + 40 LBC’s.  Plank until done.

4 x 50.  Run to the other side of the field, do 50 Plank Jacks.  Run back, do 50 2-count American Hammers.  Run across, do 50 2-count Mountain Climbers.  Run back, do 50 Monkey Humpers.  Plank until done.

Dora. Mosey to the tennis courts for a Dora: 100 Merkins, 200 Squats, 300 LBC’s, 400 2-count Flutterkicks. Plank until done.

Name-a-rama.  Number-rama.  Greenbow took us out in prayer with some great words to ensure we are nourishing our wives with our love, service, and words of affirmation.

NMS.  What a great time this was!  We did some big numbers today and everyone stayed warm.  Great seeing Twocan back after a long break.  We welcomed FNG Semi-Charmed, although I’m a believer that no name is final on the first day and is subject to change after some more group input at ET’s on Saturday.

Happy Valentine’s day, stay warm, love your wives and kids, and see ya in the gloom!

    Excellent Q Ollivander !
    Way to work guys.
    Enjoyed partnering up Handshake – well done dude.
    Way to crush that 4 corners Hardywood..
    See y’all in the gloom..

  2. Great job Olivander, that was tough, it was exactly what I needed.

    Thanks for partnering up, Swirly!

    TYA, thank you for the words of discouragement during the Dora.

  3. I’m formally asking F3 to be my Valentine…I’m in love, what can I say?! Great Q Ollivander. Picked up designer donuts to “nourish” to M on my way home. Thx for the good Word Greenbow!

  4. Great Q Ollivander! That was a smoke show. Thanks to Swirly and Green Bow for the pushes. Welcome Semi-Charmed. When I threw this name of this band out there, I had no idea that these guys ever sold a concert ticket or did anything that wasn’t on VH1. Congrats to you for your bravery and courage for sharing your shame. You’ll fit in perfectly. Other acceptable music shaming names would have been Smashmouth, Sugar Ray, Cowboy Troy and Bjork.

    Like the great ones say, I get knocked down but I get up again they’re never gonna keep me down.

  5. Great Q! Thanks for the opportunity to share and pray for this great group of men. Hardy wood, way to push, funny you were trying to figure out Ollivander’s count, while he was just following us.

    See y’all in the gloom! 4 for 4 this week, trying to workout every day until the baby arrives!
