Joke of a Workout

  • When: 03/13/18
  • QIC: Leprechaun
  • The PAX: Inferno, Spaceballs, IPA, Bob Villa (2H) Knob Creek, Tater, Skipper, Heinz (2H), Camo, KFC, Bullseye

12 PAX posted ITG for Lep-led shenanigans at #TheKingdom. 

Condition

Glorious! 50 degrees, sliver of an orange moon in the eastern sky.

CoP:
  • Lunge walk to SFs
  • SSH x12 IC
  • IW x50 IC
  • Abe Vagoda x50 IC (perhaps apropos, Bullseye’s form was on point #wardaddy)

Lunge walk to Camo’s truck to pick up the #Lil’Darlins, then a circle of pain around the truck – 150 calf raises on the coupons. Calves were burning and Inferno’s O-Face was on fire; I couldn’t see Camo’s. You’d be surprised how many “that’s what she said” jokes the PAX can fit into 150 calf raises.

The Thang:

With coupons, mosey to the soccer field, line up the #LilDarlins from the goal post to midfield. Head over to the sidelines and partner up for:

Hammertime (modified) Dora, with a twist

Exercises: 100 half bridges, 150 J-Lo’s, 200 Pickle Pounders. I soon hope to un-hear the Pickle Pounders taking place to my right. You know who you are, KC.

Running: side shuffle R to middle of field (where the coupons mark the spot), then Carioke R to the far sideline. SS L and Carioke L to get back. Spaceballs and Tater were at the other end of the PAX lineup – crushing it with good form and speed. YHC wishes he could mix a metaphor for spaceballs and potatoes.

After a quick Switzer, PAX ran to grab coupons, carry quickly to far end of soccer field, drop them gently, and race back to the other end. This movement was accomplished in 60 seconds. Not bad. T’Claps to Bob Villa (2H) for pushing through and really nailing this one.

Church Picnic (modified)

Partners leap frog 1/2 the soccer field.

Then take turns doing wheelbarrow 1/4 length of field.

30 leg raises to partner, who pushes them back to the ground. Each. T’Claps to Heinz (2H) – he was partnered with YHC and I can say his efforts today really cut the mustard while almost Spilling the Merlot.

Mosey with coupons back to parking lot to return #LilDarlins. Sour cream, bacon, and cheddar to Tater for extra credit calf raises.

YHC took us out with a quote from Marcus Aurelius and thanks to the Sky Q.

NakedManMoleskin

Cruiser recently posted a link on Stoicism, and it prompted me to pull out my Marcus Aurelius. Here is my favorite quote, which I shared with the PAX:

IF you set yourself to your present task along the path of true reason, with all determination, vigor, and good will:

IF you admit no distraction, but keep your own divinity pure and standing strong, as if you had to surrender it right now;

IF you grapple this to you, expecting nothing, shirking nothing,

BUT self-content with each present action taken in accordance with nature and a heroic truthfulness in all that you say and mean –

THEN you will lead a good life.

AND, nobody is able to stop you.
