1/2 Pre-‘spect Bday

AO: Boneyard

When: 08/19/2022

QIC: Feathers

PAX (5): FannyPack, Feathers, Morphine, Speedo, Zohan, An FNG Starsky who cased the joint and promised to come Monday


I had signed up for a 1/2 Birthday Q, and was hit with a nasty cold earlier in the week.  Wasn’t sure I could handle it and Dinghy gamely stepped up to substi-Q, but I was blessed with a rapid recovery and we audibled back to the original play.


Usual Mosey, SSH, Weedpickers, windmills, Moroccan Nightclubs, and some sprinter stretches.

The Thang:

I’m 49 1/2 years young this weekend (and I’m going to take every remaining opportunity to state that I’m in my ‘forties’).

Today’s theme was 40-9s

Tabata workout – 3 min of reps, 1 min of ‘rest’.  Field is set up with two sets of cones and two boards of pain, with an (accurately measured) 40 yards of green between.

  • 3 minutes: perform 40 reps of prescribed exercise, followed by 9 burpees.
  • 1 minute: 40 yard dash to the next set of cones.  Rest for balance of minute

Exercises as follows:

  1. Jump Squats
  2. Big Boys
  3. Crab Cakes (alpha)
  4. Copperhead Squats
  5. Merkins
  6. Peter Parkers (alpha)
  7. No Surrenders
  8. Makhtar N’Diayes

For our 9th and final set, we did 10 burpees a minute for 4 minutes with 30 second rest, which took us to time.




Reminder for the Darth Visor memorial convergence next Saturday. Prayers for the many pax who have aging/ailing parents.  Unmentioned, but please lift up the guys running the Alien half this Saturday.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

I’m happy to report I was able to make it through the Q (but I did almost cough up a lung on at least two occasions)
