PAX: Bear, Doogie, Swamp Donkey, Tubbs, Randy (looks a bit like Turbine), Backside, Squeegee, AFLAC
QIC: AFLAC, Squeegee
The Q sheet showed “Mystery Q”, which was really shorthand for AFLAC and Squeegee experimenting with a change in format. However, with weather keeping all but the most hearty of PAX in the fart-sack, it was time to improvise and save the mystery for another day.
After picking up a tardy Swamp Donkey, mosey through some persistent rain along the trail around the tennis courts and up the hill towards the pond. Extended mosey around the perimeter, where we were met by “Randy” (the random shirtless dude who showed up to Hogwallow wearing grape smugglers last week). After some brief negotiations about who would be Randy’s wing-man for partner carries (where’s Rusty when you need him), circle-up under the gymnastics entrance for the following warm-ups:
Resume moseying toward the football field to get some work done.
To get things moving, AFLAC directed all PAX to partner up for 2 laps of catch me if you can. Partner A would run backwards, while partner B did 5 burpees. Once completed, partner B runs forward to catch partner A where they would switch roles. Rinse and repeat for 2 full laps.
Up next, more catch me if you can — Bears & Crabs Edition. Partner A would crab-walk while partner B did 5 big-boy situps. Once completed, partner B bear-crawls forward to catch partner A where they would switch roles. Rinse and repeat for a single lap. Some nice mumble-chatter during this one, with Swamp & Tubbs calling an audible. Good times.
Once completed, Squeegee took the reigns by leading all PAX on a mosey towards the playground where he directed everyone to retrieve a middle-sized coupon upon arrival. With the six in, Squeegee instructed PAX to do the following:
30 Curls (w/coupon)
Carry coupon to top of steps, and perform 30 Merkins
Carry coupon back down steps
Rinse/repeat above (alternating Curls & Overhead Press each time) until Q calls time
YHC believes that it was Round 4 where he had an unfortunate run-in with a fire-ant mound, which nearly led him to take a dip in the nearby creek to rid himself of their wrath. Fortunately, it was T-10 and he opted to gut it out.
After a quick round of Squeegee-led core work, return all coupons and head back toward the flag. With only 3o seconds left on the clock, there’s always time for a round of Diamond Merkins to close things out.
Praise for the birth and good health of Divot’s and Smackdown’s 2.0’s.
I absolutely love the fact that there are (at least!) 7 other PAX who are just as dumb and crazy as YHC and won’t let some foul weather get in the way of a good time.
