Monday morning and the start of a new business week. It was finally warm, 64 degrees… and with that warmth comes humidity! I haven’t been to Quagmire in too long, that standard excuse about passing other AOs to get to another one. But being invited by Jedi to Q had me up early and ready to go! It was a welcome sight to see our Weasel Shaker and his merry men show up for ass-kickin’ April as an added bonus. I’m sure they did not enjoy themselves today. More coming at the Poopdeck Thursday!
With 17 guys ready to start I gave the disclaimer. Great to see Meltdown and The Admiral up at it early… (two FNGs from last week!) We started to run…and run…and run.
So we stopped all the way over on the other end of Rivergate, close to the Trulent banking center. We did a circle lap half way to our destination to gather the group back together and not let them pull too far apart. There were a few PAX begging for it to stop. Maybe they shouldn’t have pre-ran today? (You know who you are) But we got to run a few circle laps while the 6 made it in for COP.
IWs – Windmills – Merkins – SSHs – Peter Parkers – Some broga in between some of those.
Had to grab my speaker that I’d hidden in a bush. Informed the guys we would be doing 10 minutes of Tabata with 20 seconds on 10 seconds off. Each of these exercises would be done 4 times in a row.
2. Ranger Merkins
I played some loud rough music to keep the blood flowing during this session. It was much harder than this write-up sounds. After we finished, I asked a couple guys to give us an “Apache 10 count”. Kenyan just brought this back from Rock Hill to his Q at the Deep on Saturday. The PAX giving the 10 count shares some stuff about himself. Family, who EH’d, how long doing F3, etc. I really liked that idea and Funhouse, Bones, and Cornhole got to share.
Mosey to Evolution #2
Long run back behind Home Depot
We sat on the wall while each end would run to the long hall, sprint down it and return. Then the next PAX 2×2 would go. That took longer than I thought so people’s chair was painful.
Next BTTW 30 count
People Chair with the ends doing 5 jump squats
20 Mike Tyson’s OYO on the wall
BTTW 30 count
People’s chair with 5 Merkins
Only 5 minutes left, moseyed back to COT.
Had 2 minutes to spare some AB Lab to finish the morning.

Prayers for families and my son who swallowed a part of a toothpick Sunday that got stuck in his throat. Hoping there was no more damage internally. As of Monday night he seems better.
An honor to lead
