37 degrees might seem cold, but after the 24-26 we had earlier in the week it felt like summertime! YHC had a nice workout planned in mind and completely missed out the risk of combining oxygen deprivation and advanced calculus.
Mosey, SSH, Merkins, Windmills, Hill Billies
We moseyed to the soccer field for Crazy Eights
We run around the field and in the middle, drawing the figure 8. At each turn we stop for a workout, escalating.
The first part had Jump Squats, Big Boy Sit-ups, Carolina Dry Docks and Mountain Climbers (alpha count).
First turn we do 1-2-3-4 (1 jump squat, 2 sit ups, 3 carolina, 4 climbers), second turn 2-4-6-8, third turn 3-6-9-12 and so forth till the 8th stop for 8-16-24-32. Flatter Kicks for the 6.
Second part had American Hammers (alpha count), High Knees (alpha count), Plank Jacks and LBCs.
First turn we do 5-6-7-8. Second turn we do 6-8-10… wait. what? No, that doesn’t seem right. <YHC mumbling and counting on fingers>. The right count is 10-12-14-18, then 15-18-21-24, … all the way to 40-48-54-64.
The PAX, or most of them, were able to get it right by the 4th turn or so but YHC heard a lot of guesses on the right way to calculate and definitely got it wrong at one point himself. Just last night I was helping my 5th grader with his math homework and one would think I’ll be able to handle simple multiplication of single digits, but I might have set up the bar too high for myself there.
Burpees for the 6. Some PAX thought it would be funny to complete their LBCs in slow-mo.
YHC looked at his watch and saw 5 minutes to 6 and (incorrectly) calculated we still have 20 more minutes to go, so I called for an Indian Run around the field, drawing the 8 figure again. I then called to mosey to the Pavilion but the PAX reminded me that actually 6am is ‘Time’.
Thank you, Tebow, for allowing me to Q this morning after you called first to replace Def Con 2. It was great seeing Moonshine again.
