It was a cool 32 degrees this morning in the Swamp. YHC rolled up around 5:20 am to see if there were any early PAX. Flame and Open House rolled up. Neon on the default Q; however, 5:31 am came and went so YHC took the Q. Short disclosure…You know why you are here, don’t get hurt.
Mosey around the quarter mile track to loosen up the lungs and legs. By the time we made it around Neon joined us. Circle up for arm circles, swimmers, trunk twists, SSH, monkey humpers, hill billies, grass pickers, and merkins.
I warned the PAX today’s workout would involve lots of mumble chatter and an opportunity to lead an exercise segment.
Round 1 – Indian Run Burpee Train: Pax slow jog around the loop track; one PAX drop for 5 Burpees, then sprint to catch PAX.
Round 2 – Neon lead us through a series of upper body burning exercises. Circle up Carolina Dry Docks, Mountain Climbers, and Plank, Peter Parker.
Round 3 – Indian Run SSH Train: Pax slow jog around the loop track; one PAX stop or 20 SSH, then sprint to catch PAX.
Round 4 – Open house lead through a series of ab burning exercises. Circle up for crunchy frog, alternating v sit-ups, freddie mercury, alternating side crunches,
Round 5 – Indian Run Mountain Climber Train: Pax slow jog around the loop track; one PAX stop or 15 Mountain Climbers, then sprint to catch PAX.
Round 6 – Side Shuffle 25 yards left, Side Shuffle 25 yards right, back peddle 50 yards. 15 Crab Cakes. Turn around go back. 25 yard lunges, stop 13 shoulder tap merkins, 25 yard bear crawl, 50 yard bounding.
Mosey back to the shuffle flag for Mary.
The Main Mumble for this morning was the fact that as men we get in our own heads a lot. This results in turning ourselves into our worst enemy. If it persists long enough it can lead to indifference; which is about the worst emotion a man can have. Even if he hated something, it would be better than not having enough energy to hate something. Ultimately, as men we are challenged to take a stance on something. Get off the fence and remember that life; much like a football game is normally won in the 3rd Qtr. That means us men approaching or in our 40’s need to be digging in. It’s prime time for us if we plan on leaving a legacy or pattern of winning in life.
Run in place, high knees, butt kickers, and goof balls.
COT: NoRama, CoRama = 4
Lord guide us and give us strength to be the men you’ve created us to be in our homes, families, workplaces, and community. We also bring special prayers for the Snyder family and their two twin baby boys who will be having lip and tongue surgery today.
