So.. I’m kinda of a procrastinator. I wanted to grab a birthday Q but waited to late to get anything last Tuesday. So when Soybean asked me to Q the Bullpen I thought “Great! I’ll take Thursday of birthday week!” But Sweatervest beat me to the punch. So I did the next best thing. I Qed a week and 2 days later. It still counts. Not like I’m not 42 anymore… and what a great number! So many possibilities with such an obscure number (beyond the fact that half my life ago was the first time I could grab a brew without a fake id…). So, I decided the beat down should include a milestone number that quite frankly at 18 I didn’t think I’d ever see ha.

Warmup
SSH x 42
Mountain climbers x 10
WMH x 10
Imperial Walkers x 10
Good Mornings x 10
Burpees x 2 (see what I did there?!?)

The Thang
After warmup headed to CrossFit pull-up bars for some “42s”.
4 pull-ups followed by 2 8 count man makers
Rinse and repeat 7 times (6×7=42, keep up…)

From there headed to farmers market where PAX bear crawled 4 moves, then 2 Merkins. Continue until 4th pole.
Crawl bear back w 4 moves, then 2 cadence count Peter Parker’s. Continued til back to sidewalk.

From there headed to hilled parking lot (on Knope recommendation, good call Knope) for 4 count backwards lunges, 2 squats, then back to backward lunges – repeat. Did this to top then run back down. Switch it to forward lunges for 4 count, 2 tuck jumps then back to lunges. Alternate until at top.

Left there and ran to skate park. Another “42”.
4 x Carolina Drydocks then 2 x Burpees. Rinse and repeat for 7 sets.

Then time to head back for Mary. But to get there we did a little speed work. 4 count sprint, 2 count jog repeated until back home.

Mary
42 cadence flutters
Box Cutter x 10
Freddy Mercuries x 10
LBCs x 10
Ski Abs x 10 and, you guessed it…
2 burpees

No announcements or prayer requests, I assume that the 42s left them speechless?

YHC led COT and once again was thankful for this group of misguided misfits that keep him wanting to come back.

Thanks to all for coming and celebrating a late late late birthday with me. I’m thinking this might be a tradition. However Sweatervest said he will not show up for the 62nd birthday Q, too many pull-ups. Dually noted.
