11 hardy veterans from the Gloom showed up to greet the early morning and enjoy a VQ beatdown and some fellowship.
As this was YHC’s first actual Q, mistake number 1 was to ask the PAX if they where ready to mossy? Mumble chatter about how “this is your Q Doozy” and “I don’t know, what do you want to do” were heard throughout the AO. The PAX did give in and did a (Rosie) Mossy to a spot in front of the school, from there this is what went down.
(12) Don Quixote’s
(12) Wind Mills or as everyone else informed YHC Helicopters (but Wilson said “you be you Doozy” so Wind Mills they stayed
My cadence was disrupted a few times by the silly person talking inside my head but once I had a word with him, things got straightened out
Mossy another 20 yards line up on the curb
Bear Crawl to the other Curb (12) Merkins Bear Crawl back (12) Merkins
Repeto – with Crawl Bear
Repeto – Crab Walk
Mossy to bus parking lot to find (10) bus parking spaces with exercises written out in chalk at each parking space (we had 11 warriors this morning so an 11th spot was added to allow every warrior their own spot). As it is YHC’s (48) birthday today 4+8=12 all exercises = 12 count, complete the exercise in your space run a lap around the school move to the next space complete that exercise repeto for all spaces. Space 5 reserved for the ball or chain, I had a 20’ logging chain in my truck (doesn’t everyone?) and a dodge ball that the dog popped, now filled with sand and covered in duct tape. Take either ball or chain and run around the school (extra credit if you could carry both) I don’t think anyone attempted it.
- American Hammers
- Ball Dippers
- Run with ball or chain
- Box Cutters
- Carolina Dry Docks
- Squat Jumps
- Heals to Heaven
Time was called finish where you are, mossy back to the flag. 2 minutes remaining finish out with various forms of the plank position.
Number-rama, Name-a-rama and YHC take us out
Announcements: The Forge #Dos happening tomorrow – Good times to be had
“I do not intend to offend; I offend with my intent” – only 80’s metal heads will know what song that is from. My intent was not to run as much as the day prior because of Old Glory but I can’t help it it’s in my DNA. Wilson was more than happy to hear that we would run around the school after each exercise which someone mentioned put us right around 4 +/- miles for the morning. It was either that or run around the track and I thought the track was a farther run (my Garman is broke). As usual Rosie and Tobit lead the way and everyone worked on what they could.
Well done team and thank you for helping me start my birthday in a positive, fun, rewarding way
P.S. Senility must be setting in because I did call out 47 during the Name-a-rama
