With temps well in the 60’s and fresh off a Virginia Slim call-out the night prior, YHC was hoping for summer-like numbers and the PAX didn’t disappoint (well, except for Slim).  With an FNG in tow and 0530 on the clock, it was time to get rolling.

Warm-O-Rama:

Mosey up the main drag and circle up at the first parking lot for the following:

  • Side-Straddle Hops
  • Weed Pickers
  • Windmills

Continue mosey toward the back half of the AO and direct low-mosey’rs to lunge-walk across the large parking lot while leading the remaining PAX on a perimeter tour.  Gather low-mosey’rs on the turn before easing up at the playground for the main event.

The Thang:

Knowing that we have a true Murph looming for Memorial Day, YHC wanted to introduce a twist on his favorite BD to get a measure of the PAX.  This meant the addition of coupons and burpees, simply because they improve everything.  A Murph circuit would be the BD du jour, consisting of the following:

  • 10 Pull-Ups
  • 20 Decline Merkins
  • 25 Overhead Press (with coupon)
  • 30 Squats (with coupon)
  • Run perimeter of baseball field, stopping at the flag for 10 Burpees
  • Rinse/repeat the above, subtracting 1 Burpee for each round

YHC believes that he and Rusty got through 5 rounds before time was up, despite getting passed by Bieber and Bronco.  Great work and plenty of mumble-chatter all around.  Squeegee serves as a good barometer of the BD – if I can’t hear him from 10 yards away, it’s time to turn up the volume (unless he’s just way ahead of me, which is happening a lot lately).

With 5 minutes to go, Q directs PAX to hoist the coupon and cusack back toward the flag.  Deposit coupons in the ditch for another day, and get in a short round of Mary before time was called.

COT:

  • Continued prayers for Zook as he undergoes treatment.
  • Beer Mile on the books for May 17 at 1800 sharp at The Wreck.
  • F3Alpha will be rolling out a group calendar to get all PAX on the same page with regional events.  Stay tuned for details.

AFLAC out.
