The Thang:

Conditions: right around freezing, not much of a breeze.

After having tweaked a previous workout for my last Q at Catapult, I was due to bring something new this time around. Not that the wheel needs to be reinvented every time out, but I never want to let things get stale. After having success previously with Musical Dora, I concocted another song timed, AMRAP workout with a few twists to push the PAX and make sure everyone gets their money’s worth.

Pre-Run: Judge Judy, Candy Cane and myself started running about 4:45 and picked up Pikachu after a few laps and Skimmer joined in a bit later. I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed these pre-runs. As someone who generally loathes running, having some fellow Pax out there really keeps the motivation up.

The Thang

Musical Chairs (An Explanation) – A workout routine, set to music, for groups of three or more with a Pax each at two different workout stations doing prescribed exercise and third Pax that travels from one station to the other. When the third Pax arrives at the next station, he flapjacks with the Pax already there, performing the prescribed exercise while the other Pax now travels back to the station the third Pax began. This continues until the song ends at which point, whichever Pax is in transit performs a penalty exercise, in this case five burpees, while the Pax at the workout stations catch a blow. The penalty definitely had PAX pushing their mosey as the songs wound down, which was according to plan.

YHC led us out in prayers for Humback’s grandfather, Sgt. Harris, Sunshine’s mother, my family as we grieve for the loss of my Two Momma (she was adamant she was too young and good looking to be grandmother when I was born)

Appreciate the strong turnout of HIM on a cold morning in February. The format seemed to be a success, though a few tweaks are needed here and there. Apple turnovers seemed to be everyone’s favorite, hands down…
