QIC: AFLAC

YHC has been feeling guilty since his last Q for shorting the PAX on a full Murph, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity for a mulligan.  Besides, the PAX (or was it Chelsea?) agreed that these should be on a monthly rotation, so with that reinforcement, plans for a foggy Monday were made.

Warm-Up

YHC noticed that Grease Monkey still had a truck-load of coupons from the Strongest SnowPAX beatdown, which provided the perfect opportunity for a little misdirection at the start.  After pointing out said coupons to the PAX and hearing a nice round of midwife noises, YHC declared “NOT TODAY” and led a 3/4 mile mosey to the back parking lot for a round of the following:

  • 15 Imperial Walkers
  • 15 Windmills
  • 15 Mountain Climbers

The Thang

Mosey again for quick 1/4 mile and stop at the playground for core of the Murph consisting of the following rounds, AMRAP style:

  • 10 Pull-ups (or Burps…or a combo thereof)
  • 20 Merkins
  • 30 Squats

After 2 rounds of the above, run the perimeter of the baseball field.  Rinse and repeat until Q calls time.  All said, most PAX were able to grind through 5 rounds with some go-getters pushing past 6+.  Thumper and Turbine were some notable over-achievers (Edit:  Thumper pulled a Jelly Lube – look it up).  TCLAPS all around.

After sweeping the six, mosey back to the flag for a lightning round of Burps ‘n Merks.  In short, an ascending order of Merkins within a Burpee (down, Merkin(s), then complete) with the last round consisting of 10 Merkins.  YHC was targeting a full pyramid of 100 Merkins, but ran out of time.

COT

  • Continued prayers for Bear’s friends and I-Beam’s Grandmother.

AFLAC out.
