75th anniversary of V-E Day


5 faithful came out to perfect spring weather for a beatdown. The Q asked if anyone knew what day it was in history, no PAX answered so we got after it:

COP: SSH, Don Qs, Russian Soldiers, Merkins, Flutterkicks, 5 burpees.

Head to endline of field: run width of field, 5 burpees, run back, 5 burpees. Repeato x3, running total 35 burpees. Head down to stadium entrance, 5 more burpees.

Unveiling of DonkeyHumpers: 15 Donkey Kicks & 10 Pickle Pounders. 3 rounds. 5 more burpees. 15 more high & slow donkey kicks. 5 more burpees. Up to BWES field, 10 more burpees.

Over to playground: 3 sets of 8 pullups. 5 burpees. Alternate Bear crawl & lunge across field. back across side lunge & bear crawl. 5 more burpees.

Over to bus loop of BWES for Dora 123: 100 merkins, 200 jump squats, 300 LBCs. Mosey back to flag for 1 min of mary and 5 last burpees giving us 75 total. YHC took us out.

NMS: What better way to remember V-E day than 75 burpees during the beatdown. We had 3 PAX at 5:29 but then Mr Holland and PeeDee arrive to give us a solid 5 pax.

Starting off with runs & 30 burpees after the COP got the juices flowing. Doozy and Probation made it look easy. The PAX can thank Doublemint for the DonkeyHumpers, although after his suggestion on slack chose the fartstack this morning.

Probation shared with YHC his absence in the gloom was from his visiting a monastery recently. Apparently PeeDee’s super power is bear crawl – he was almost done with the whole field before we could switch to lunges.

YHC has been taking advantage of the stay-at-home time to watch documentaries with the 2.0s. After finishing a 10 hour series on WWII it is always inspiring what our grandparents went through and good lesson for us today on what courage looks like. And for anyone looking for a Q idea (boberry) V-J day is not too far off.
