YHC was welcomed to the gloom by 14 eager warriors on his
VQ. Timberwolf was the setting which worked out great because my nephew loved Wolves and Sharks.
Mosey to the bus circle for COP. It appears YHC had some difficulty counting and will practice that for next time. Don Quixotes (slow in honor of wilson), Arm circles,LBC’s, Merkens, There may have been some other exercises?
Mosey back by YHC’s car to pick up my Buddy. Carry buddy (67lbs. Heavy bag) to track and start deadman carry. I was originally planning partners could carry Bob but after carrying Bob to the track I made my first audible thinking 2 people are going to struggle here. Partner up. Half the PAX runs a lap of track alternating carrying Bob. The other half does alternating exercises. 5 rounds equals 5 track runs with heavy bag and 5 rounds of exercises.
Round 1 100 Merkens, 100 LBC’s
Round 2 100 squats, 100 World War II’s
Round 3 100 Hello Dollies, 100 Flutter kicks
Round 4 50 Carolina drydocks and 100 Russian Soldiers.
Round 5 100 Squat Jumps and 100 single count mountain climbers
Back to flag 1 minute to spare so squats as a group.
I let everyone know the carry was in honor of my sister and nephew. My nephew Kristopher passed away at 28 years old and I was in Ohio this week for funeral. At 18 months Kristo was diagnosed with cancer. Heavy rounds of Chemo left his immune system weak which caused spinal meningitis. He has lived in a mostly vegetative state since. Doctors gave him 12 months to live. My sister was not having any of that and nursed and carried him through 28 years of life. He lived the best life he could traveling Europe and South America. Swimming with Dolphins and seeing Andres Bocelli every chance he could. Thanks for the well wishes and thanks to the New Market crew for offering to take my spot if I did not make it back in time.
Mousetrap VQ Twin Team tomorrow.
Gentleman it has been an honor to share the gloom with you. You can make many excuses not to do this but it is great being around a group who make the choice to do something and start their day with a solid beat down. I am very grateful to Wilson for dragging my ass here and all of you who inspire me. BTW this was a great way to slow down Tobit and Doozy. Beaker said he thought we were going once around. Marmaduke looking like he was shot out of a cannon every time he grabbed the bag. I heard Rosie and POG would not give up the bag. Shout out to Corned Beef for making the Trek from D’ville. Transfers from Bullseye to Beaker were fun to watch with the 12” height difference. Herme was quiet in the car, I think the beat down was fierce but had to ask because the Q adrenaline makes it hard to gauge.
Closed in prayer. Prayers for Orange Crush and my sister. YHC took us out.
I am sure I missed something and will do even better next time.
