When YHC was putting together a plan for the Q for this morning, the weather forecast was showing a continuation of the cold and rain that has been plaguing central NC for the past several days (weeks?!). YHC attempted to create a workout that could keep us under cover for the majority of the time in case the rain got really bad. Of course, this reverse jinx worked, and though it was still cold and damp this morning, at least there was very little active rain.

But too late to change the plan! After 2 PAX got in a drizzly EC 5k run, a total of 10 PAX gathered in the gloom for a beatdown that YHC had promised would involve no running.

 

Warmup

  • SSH x25
  • WMH x10
  • Good Morning x10
  • LBAC/Reverse x12
  • Hillbilly x10
  • Merkin IC x10

 

Thang

Divide into two groups, and Mosey* around to the front of the school (*this does not count as “running” in my book).

Round 1

  • Group 1 – Dips x 15 IC, on the wall
  • Group 2 – Side lunges x 15 IC, out in the open area
  • Flip-flop and repeato. Each group did 4 sets of each exercise. PAX took it in turns to call the cadence

 

Round 2

  • Group 1 – Derkins x 15 SC, on the wall
  • Group 2 – Bobby Hurleys x 15 SC, out in the open area
  • Flip-flop and repeato. Each group did 4 sets of each exercise. PAX took it in turns to call the cadence

 

Round 3

  • Group 1 – Box Jumps x 15 OYO, on the wall
  • Group 2 – Burpee x 10 OYO (these take longer, and 10 seemed like plenty), out in the open area
  • Flip-flop and repeato. Each group did 4 sets of each exercise

 

Having grown thoroughly tired of exercising in this area, PAX took a recovery Mosey to the rear parking lot. Took advantage of the clear weather to do to following in the open air, rather than under the covered walkway as was originally planned.

  • Lt Dans to 2nd island
  • 15 Merkins IC, Mosey Back
  • Crawl Bear to 1st island
  • 10 Merkins IC, Mosey Back
  • Standing Broad Jump to 2nd island
  • 10 Merkins IC, Mosey Back
  • Bear Crawl to 2nd island
  • 10 Merkins IC

 

Mosey back to Startex for a brief…

Mary

  • Flutter Kick x 50 IC
  • Shoulder Taps x 30 IC

Announcements – Q-sheet looking better, but still plenty of upcoming opportunities at #theeagle to lead! Welcome to Count Chocula, making his 1st post at #theeagle (though ~5th total F3 post in the past 2 weeks)!

Prayers for BeBee’s father, who continues making his recovery.

YHC enjoyed leading an excellent group this morning, SYTIG!
