Despite an ominous preview via Slack, 18 brave PAX showed up for a VQ beatdown (with coupons!) courtesy of a Wreck elder, Virginia Slim. Slim may not be known for his cardio, but he can bring some serious old-man strength and tailored a mosey-free beat-down complete with plenty of cinder blocks to go around.
Everyone grab a coupon and mosey John Cusack style to the first parking lot up the hill for the following:
- 20 Imperial Walkers
- 20 Windmills
- 20 Toy Soldiers
For starters, V-Slim directed the PAX on a Cusack mosey to the Rec Center drive for 2 rounds of true mountain-climbers (coupon-pushing) up the hill to the first speed-bump (perhaps 40 yards) with 20 coupon-merkins at the top. With 17 PAX grinding coupons on asphalt, I’m certain we scared away anything living (or dead) within a full square mile and left the place smelling like one giant flint rock.
Next, the PAX Cusack-moseyed to the top of the hill for a cycle of coupon-merkins and coupon-presses at the top, with 5 burpees at the bottom. Rinse/repeat for 3 rounds.
The coupon tour continued with another Cusack mosey to the wall at the bottom of the hill for 3 rounds of 15’s: one-armed rows (each-side) and skull-crushers.
A short Cusack mosey left us at the football field parking lot where we started a round of 20 coupon squats followed by lunges across the lot. Rinse/repeat halfway back across the lot.
At this stage in the game the coupons were beating us down and V-Slim made a call to the bullpen where YHC was more than happy to dispense with the shenanigans and start heading back to the flag. PAX attempted a Cusack down the trail with 2 short stops for rounds of in-cadence curls and clean/jerks while waiting for the six. Credit to I-Beam who got a genuine mosey-trot on with coupon in tow. Something tells me he’s had some practice…
Back to the flag for some Mary including 40 flutter-kicks, 20 freddy mercury’s, and some ring-around-the-rosie with coupons to round things out.
- Hearty welcome to Rusty, co-worker with Grease Monkey and Toothpick’s neighbor. He was quietly crushing his first beatdown!
