23 hand-washing, mask-wearing, self-quarantine-rs posted for our first social distancing beatdown of the Covid-19 era. Temps were sunny and 70. The pax did the following, more or less:
Slaughter-ish Starter (all in-cadence, Lawrence Welk style):
19 flutter kicks
Happy birthday to Mr. Lawrence Welk, who would have been 117 this week. He taught YHC the art of calling cadence.
Mosey to the Amphitheater for COP:
Something else x10
Assemble on the Stage for Self-Quarantine (1 hour workout entirely on the stage).
Correction: YHC remembered that Wilson does this every September.
Starting at the bottom, do 10 monkey humpers and 9 reverse crunches on each step.
Early finishers hold decline merkin plank on the top step, mixing in assorted ups-and-downs
Partner up. Remain socially distant.
Partner 1 runs down to bottom step, while
Partner 2 performs (Not) Wilson’s Boxing Cockroach (do it solo!) at the top step.
When partner 1 returns, swap places.
Attempt to have each partner run to each step (18, then 17, then 16, etc).
Speaking of Wilson (and, YHC thinks…Nancy Lopez) and Social Distancing, Wilson and NL showed up at the 06:30 a.m. point of the work out having been unable to find the PAX, who had been hiding in plain sight AT THE BOTTOM OF THE AMPHITHEATER.
Early finishers hold decline merkin plank on the top step, mixing in assorted ups-and-downs.
Mosey towards the Great Lawn, but stop short for…
(Don’t You Dare) Touch-a-Tree:
Somehow, Touch-a-Tree has become the most complicated of F3 rotations.
To paraphrase Corporate, “How is this hard for people? You touch a tree.”
Remaining socially distant, form teams of 3.
Rounds of 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2 trees. As with any triple check, each man does all three parts. Exercises for rounds 10 and 8 were squats and flutter kicks
Exercises for rounds 6 and 4 were something else and LBCs (who knows?)
Exercises for round 2 were burpees and burpees.
EF Hutton led the early finishers in some planking.
Mosey to the Great Lawn for 4 Corners:
Corner 1: Merkins x19
Corner 2: Snow Angels x19
Corner 3: Flutter Kicks x19
Corner 4: SSHs
When done, run it back in reverse.
Short mosey to the front of the Carillon for some Mary
Box cutters x19
Group Mosey BTTF (Handshake has only one speed)
Number-am-a, Name-a-ram-a, YHC took us out.
Great to have Sippy back. He’s running a Go-Fund-Me to get a new front tooth. Pinterest is hosting a site with his options. https://www.pinterest.com/cj5013/gold-teeth/
Apparently, Bodo’s canceled God (or, at least, in person services) for his parish. (A small handful of) people are losing their minds. Given the circumstances, let’s all remember how challenging this unprecedented situation is.
Let’s keep all of our friends, neighbors, and colleagues struggling with how to deal with Covid-19 and its implications in our prayers. Patience, kindness, leadership, and understanding to everyone. Keep calm and mosey on. And, remember, this is real.
YHC signed up for this Q some months ago anticipating a March celebration of Lawrence Welk. Life intervened. Somehow, what YHC had planned just didn’t seem quite right, so YHC reconsidered the following:
“Self-quarantine on stage.” Wilson already does that.
“Prison cell quarantine in a parking space.” Issues: a) there are no marked spaces at Dogpile and b) Chum already does this.
Who would have guessed that all of the really good “pandemic-themed” Q options would already have been taken?
