YHC, nursing a bruised ego, and a sore ankle, eyed the SUG (Sign Up Genius), and alas, it was as if the F3verse was calling me home, and with that, an HC happened, and an alarm was set. (not that i needed, my body has been programmed and at 0525 my eyes opened and my feet began moving).

I pointed my trusty steed (Silver), toward PMS and and got my mind right.

I was joined on my walk to the start by Scout, Leon and Radar. Then came Sasquatch, then Box-Checker, and Fireballs, followed by CurveBall on two wheels and Gilligan  as time was called. Finally, better late than never, Meathead joined the fray.

Time to go to work

Warm-O-Rama:

0600 hit and YHC laid down the disclaimer. The 1st few minutes, all IC and all x12:  SSH, Imp. Walkers, Squats, Cotton Pickers and Stone Mountains.

A light lap around the outfield, down the 1st base line and up the 3rd base line.

Round 2, same as the 1st, all IC and all x12:  SSH, Imp. Walkers, Squats, Cotton Pickers and Stone Mountains.

And another light lap around the outfield, down the 1st base line and up the 3rd base line.

 

The Thang:

Time build some pyramids, Dubya style:

2-4-6-8-10-8-6-4-2

  • LBCs
  • Squats
  • Merkins
  • Air Presses (x5 the count)

For those keeping count, 50 LBCs, 50 Squats, 50 Merkins and 250 Air Presses

And a lap for good measure.

A little light leg work, from the warning track to the infield (2 rounds total)

  • Warrior Lunges
  • Butt Kickers
  • Toy Soldiers
  • High Knees

Another lap, because, well, why not.

Circle it up, time for some Mary (all x15, sort of, and mostly IC)

  • High Dolly
  • Low-la-lita
  • Leon’s Box Cutters
  • Low Flutter
  • Obliques (Right and Left)
  • American Hammer
  • Dying Cockroach (x10)
  • Low Scissors
  • Big Boy SitUps (OYO)

On line for our final set (4 Rounds)

10 HRMs, pop tall and sprint to the infield, and mosey back

CurveBall and Sasquatch proved that youth is wasted on the young.

COT:

Leon took us out with some words of thanks.

There will only be one beatdown on Thursday, time to be announced by Tuesday evening, but so far it is trending to the early side with an unusually high number of  fartsackers.

Don’t forget to take Manhole’s Turkey Day Survey:

20 respondents thus far.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

CurveBall kept the mood light, by letting us know that this was the oldest beatdown that he had been to in a while, and perhaps thus far:

  • Gilligan (70)
  • Fireballs (61)
  • Radar (60)
  • Scout and Leon (53)
  • Manhole and Meathead (50)

Sasquatch at 38, and Box Checker and CurveBall fought over the WarBaby at 36!

Average age, 50.7. Boom!

Scout and CurveBall have the Q tomorrow at 5:30 and 6 AM respectively.

Speaking of  Qs – the sign up sheet is look pretty empty, so let’s see if we can’t fix that right quick:
