  • QIC: H-Bomb
  • The PAX: Trojan (HH), Foam, Muffy (R), Tib-Fib, Element (R), Pom Pom, Other Brother Darrel, Miranda, YHC (QIC)

9 PAX met up with a DD by 4 PAX and a TD by 2 PAX, for a good warmup leading into a full BD, down by the River.  Fun had by all!

Condition

49°F, cool breeze (I swear it was warmer earlier).

The Thang

Warmup

  • Copperhead Squats x12 IC
  • Grass Grabbers x12 IC
  • Roll on Back with feet over shoulders – hold for 8 count x5 (2.0 Special)
  • SSH x76 IC
  • Airplane x11 IC (2.1 Special)

Mosey to back parking lot

  • Circle up for Lunges x11 IC
  • Partner Count off 1s-2s
  • Descending 8’s
    • Partners go to opposite ends of parking lot (speed bumps) and start with 8 Merkins each
    • Run to middle, P1 – Burpees x5, P2 – LBCs x5 (the catch is you cross your partner as you do down to do the merkin and the partner is flexed open in the crunch – requires coordination) … NOTE – the Men at the River had no qualms – so heed warning at the Hogg!
    • Continue by running to the opposite end doing 7..6..5……..1 Merkins while doing the Burpee Crunch sandwich in-between
  • Circle up for Squats x11 IC

Skater Mosey to Trojan Hill – Inspired by the video Trojan posted of his daughter rolling down a hill, the PAX was lined up, and each one took a rolling tumble down the hill, once the rolling stopped, next PAX initiated the roll while the one that completed run the perimeter of Trojan Hill Landing, then Sprint up the hill to return into line.  RnR 3 more times

IR Mosey to the DORA circuit (up the stairs, long way around, down the stairs to meet your partner) for a Simple DORA

  • 1st Exercise – Hot Dog Jump (AMRAP for P1, switch)
  • 2nd Exercise – Derkins (AMRAP)
  • 3rd Exercise – Balls to the Wall (AMRAP)
  • Michelle Kwan/Tara Lipinski for the Six

Mosey to flags for the GAME…had to be there

Q Fail on the time (3 mins over at this point) – but…closed it out per the PAX request – Christi Yamaguchi x1 OYO (referencing a previous BB as the PAX directed by Cruiser had studied up on H-Bomb BBs – Burpee, Spin Left, Burpee, Skater Hop Right, Burpee, Spin Right, Burpee, Skater Hop Left – 1 Done).

TAPs to our Veterans given tomorrow is Veteran’s Day!  We were honored to have 3 vets in our PAX today – Foam, Element, and Pom Pom – to you guys, and those who sacrificed and served for our country, we sincerely THANK YOU!  Also as talked about all week, given the exacerbated divides our political climate has promoted, as a PAX, we should continue to lead by example and show everyone compassion, dignity and respect, it will influence others.  Also with the spate of mass shootings, as we pray for those who have lost, also reach out to the Sad Clown.  As Beta pointed out, these men were misguided for whatever reason or cause, but we should reach out and engage and encourage them to find a group like ours, to provide positive support that will bring strength out of that individual.  One step at a time, we all make a difference!

The SixSixSix (SixQs at SixAOs in SixDays) is now complete.  Thank you Brothers at the River for welcoming me with open arms, you guys made the haul to Kingwood worthwhile and I look forward to posting again.  After being thoroughly dusted, I took a day off for a good nights sleep before writing this BB, so yes it was a grind to figure out a new Q on top of adding a new GAME each day, but in the end, I can’t think of anyway we could have done it better.  The Qs were different, and the PAX enjoyed the GAMES, what else could I ask for.  4 more AOs to complete, Trinity, Rocket, Kingdom, and Shed – be ready, but doing Six in a row, wow, it was a CSAUP worth doing.  Let the games continue en route to the culmination at Black Hogg Ops!  With that, the gauntlet is dropped for the next PAX to take on the challenge of the SixSixSix!
