The Thang:

57* with a light mist

YHC was ready to roll and as I pulled the car out of the garage I noticed a light mist going on. Arrangements to keep the phone and Bluetooth speaker dry must be added to the mix. In a half awake daze I ran back into the garage and grabbed an umbrella and a plastic bin (in the end, neither were used). Pulled into Bombsquad at about 5:20 am and decided to set up music operations at the door of the rec center. Once set up, I pulled over to the parking lot to find a few more people than I did on Saturday. Mumble chatter included some typical Monday morning quarterback gibberish and Crankbait threw out that YHC would be planning a mad beatdown in response to being all left alone on Saturday. We also welcomed DR PAX “Magellan” & “Chowda” in town from F3Churham.  1- minute warning given at 5:29 am and the normal disclaimer followed. At 5:30 am we mosey’d over to the rec center parking lot and I instructed the PAX to circle up while I que’d up the morning playlist. Two notes into the first song Sunshine blurted out the title, “Eyes of the World”. YHC was impressed!

And the beatdown went like this….

25 Side Straddle Hops

25 Though The Tunnel

25 Imperial Walkers

10 Windmills

25 Little Baby Arm Circles

25 LBAC in reverse

25 Cherry Pickers

I asked the PAX to guess what type of vehicle I was driving when I picked up my now wife on our first date. Without hesitation Sunshine threw out a VW Bus. Right again! I’m thinking this lad knows his Dead!

25 Overhead Press

We then partnered up for some DORA style ab work. Instructions were to do the exercise while your partner bear crawls to the end of the parking lot and then do anything but mosey back. (I saw some interesting varieties from hopping to tin soldiers and much more!)

The exercises were:

100 American Hammers (2 count)

100 Flutter Kicks (4 count)

100 Big Boys

100 Freddie Mercury’s (4 count)

As “I Need A Miracle” came across the speaker it was time for some cardio!

Mosey’d to the big parking lot to Run the Lines

Mosey’d back to the small parking lot

Time to grab some coupons and proceed to get back to our Dora… Same idea with the bear crawl and be creative back with the following exercises:

100 Burpees

(Bear crawl changed to mosey after the burpees and Overhead Press and Merkin number cut in half due to time constraints)

100 50 Overhead Press with Coupon

100 50 Merkins

Coupons returned and Mosey’d back to COT

With “Alabama Getaway” blasting we did:

33 LBC (Brown Bag’s Grateful Dead concert total)

15 Shoulder Taps (Sunshine)

Hold 6 inches (Chowda DR)

22 Merkins OYO (Brown Bag)

TIME

Great work was put in by all! Such an honor to Q in the presence of these HIM!
