Mystery Solved

AO: The Gladiator

When: 06/02/2020

PAX: Tebow, Viking, Stroller, Scratch Off, Laces, Speedo, Rasberry Pi

QIC: Cookie @blunsford4

When YHC jumped on the Q sheet anonymously about a week ago, the mumblechatter kicked off about who the Mystery Q was.  Lots of panic ensued and there were talks of the PAX having a backup Q on standby in case the Mystery guy no-showed.  That was not to happen as YHC had a plan, and even arrived 10 minutes early to park his car in an obscure lot and setup the Thang.  About 3 minutes till 5:30am, a quick mosey over to the flag and the Mystery was Solved….

Warm-O-Rama:

After a quick disclaimer, off we went to the lower tennis court parking lot for a traditional warmup.

  • SSH
  • Windmill
  • Weedpicker

Next, we moseyed to the parking lot opposite of the flag for the main course.

The Thang:

Board of Pain, 12 days of Christmas style.  Run a loop to start, then 5 burpees, run.  Then 10 Bonnie, 5 burpees, run.  Etc. Etc.

  • 1 Loop
  • 5 Burpees
  • 10 Bonnie Blairs
  • 15 Merkins
  • 20 Squats
  • 25 SSH
  • 30 Flutter Kicks (alpha)
  • 35 Lunges
  • 40 American Hammer (alpha)
  • 45 LBC
  • 50 BONUS ROUND Bear Crawl (50 yards)

After our bonus bear crawl, we did DB drills up and down the long parking lot.  Balls to the Wall followed for 45 seconds (60 seconds for extra credit).  Then a spring back to the flag.

COT:

It was nice being back at the Gladiator.  YHC was here for the launch 2 years ago and then back for the 1 year anniversary, but maybe only 1 other time since then.  This is a very strong group with lots of potential.  Guys like Spandex, Scar, Stroller, Tebow, Speedo & Viking have done a great job keeping it a tight unit for 2 years.  Prayers were spoken about the civil unrest in the country and the need right now for more unity and less division.   We lifted up those that could not make it out today including those battling injury and illness as well as those still feeling unsafe due to Covid19.  A prayer request was asked by YHC for a close family friend battling an aggressive brain cancer.

Honored to lead.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

The two main pleasures of posting at the Gladiator were both denied for YHC today.

  1. DC2 was noticeably absent so YHC was robbed of a good Co-Q presence of form criticism
  2. Post beatdown coffeeteria in the parking lot was not to be had due to a kayak injury by Spandex which has him on the IR
