YHC has a habit of checking the Wreck Q sheet on a fairly regular basis, so it was quite alarming to see an ENTIRE WEEK of Q-less leadership on the horizon. Thankfully, DD stepped up to deliver a typically-erotic BD on Monday, and YHC did a little planning in case a pinch-hitter was needed on Wednesday (hint: it was). Thankfully, Yao-Ming has plans for virgin leadership on Friday, even if the Q sheet might not show it (he’s still trying to get that sorted out).
After sweeping (“come on!”) Rusty, Q led PAX along the main road to the large parking lot for the following warm-ups:
Direct all PAX to select a partner of no particular size or orientation, and head for the corner of the large parking lot. Q was sure to accommodate the wounded (and freshly scooting) Turbine, which just so happened to be his partner for the day.
First exercise, catch-me-if-you-can Burpee style – Partner A performs 5 Burpees while Partner B runs (or scoots) backwards around the perimeter of the parking lot. Partner A runs forward to catch Partner B and switch roles. Rinse/repeat for 2 full laps. It was noted that Turbine is lacking Tweaker’s cat-like agility on a scooter and was unable to navigate backwards.
Next exercise, head for the turf field for some catch-me-if-you-can Bears/Crabs style – Partner A performs 5 BBS while Partner B crab-walks around the perimeter of the turf field. Partner A bear-crawls forward to catch Partner B and switch roles until an entire lap is completed. This is an under-appreciated exercise that always results in PAX modifying down the stretch.
After some quick Mary, head for the stadium for a round of Ed Nortons (coined by Turbine in reference to a scene in American History X – discuss amongst yourselves). For the uninitiated, format goes as follows – Partner A “wheelbarrows” Partner B up and down the stadium steps. Simple, yet brutal. YHC has been tinkering with format on this one, and today’s version would include a Merkin on each step. PAX were all very thankful for an absent Foley, as nobody wants to carry his legs.
Speaking of which (with T-10 remaining), backwards-run toward the playground for a few rounds of The Foley with 5 Burpees between each set before heading back to the flag.
Prayers for friends/family of PAX suffering from illnesses.
