MOLESKIN:

A lot of mumble chatter today for those who chose to battle today over Rump Roast pilate slayer class on west side. Big time warrior mentality was shown by all. 

We welcomed the return of AlrightAlright who may be experiencing early effects of fatherhood fitness levels due to his break (or lack of sleep), no question it will be back to par in no time. 

Special Sauce set the alarm 30-45 seconds too late but made up ground quickly. 
T claps to Teasip for keeping net burpees low today for the group and Big Tex for the continuous display of fitness improvement and excellence. Also shout out to Oatmeal for continuing to remain in the front of the pax (will catch you eventually).

Black Diamond

#backblast #blackdiamond #attendancepost
PAX: Classified, Dirtbag, Icebox, Meatball, Oatmeal, Siesta, Special Sauce, Swiper
Q: Alright Alright
AO: Lindsley Park

WARMORAMA:
Side Straddle Hops x10
Imperial Storm Troopers x10

THA THANG:
The team has four bombs to diffuse. They must select a Captain to choose people for specific roles throughout the workout. They elected Icebox the Captain.

Run to Icebox‘s house. Diffuse Bomb #1:
20 Burpees & 20 Merkins for each PAX (PAX can share burpees). One PAX must do all 20 Burpees with the bomb (coupon). Another PAX must do 20 nipplers on the bomb instead of their merkins. (diffusers: Classified, Dirtbag)

Run to opposite side of Grand and up the hill to touch the guard rail. 5 Burpees for each PAX to kill the enemy that is shooting at us.

Captain Icebox was KIA. (He could no longer speak strategically, but was still responsible for his reps)

Oatmeal takes the lead. Appoints himself, but the PAX don’t disagree and there’s no time for argument or speculation of some possible friendly fire that might have taken Icebox out.

Run to Oatmeal‘s house. Diffuse Bomb #2:
Same Exercises (diffusers: Oatmeal, Special Sauce)

Captain Oatmeal was KIA.

Dirtbag takes the lead.

Run down Ash and down Santa Monica to the Santa Fe Trail to return to the battlefield at Grand. Repeato the fire fight.

Run to Icebox‘s house. Diffuse Bomb #3:
Same Exercises (diffusers: Special Sauce, Alright Alright)

The bomb needed to be delivered to the Combat Outpost for further investigation, so Captain Dirtbag sent Oatmeal and Special Sauce to take the bomb to Lindsley. Not sure how he got the dead man to do it, but we didn’t have time to discuss.

Run to Oatmeal‘s house. Diffuse Bomb #4 or not…. we were working through the diffusion when it was clear that we weren’t going to get it done in time, so we decided to get the bomb away from civilians and back to the Outpost to diffuse it. We arrived at the Outpost at 6:14 and were able to get some of our burpees done, but not all of them. MISSION FAILURE

Punishment for failing: 54 burpees (6 per PAX) and 180 merkins (20 per PAX). The PAX decided to complete these before COT.

Mission Totals: 3.78 miles (Strava told me it was a 7:57/mile running pace), 90 burpees and 80 merkins.

Thanks to the PAX for putting up with my creativity or lack thereof for this one. The goal of this Black Diamond workout was to put in some serious miles in preparation for the CSAUP on February 5th and 6th. Future Black Diamond workouts might be more stationary or involve shorter running distances. The key for Black Diamond is to get the whole group to push themselves beyond a regular workout.

MOLESKIN:

Q of the Year Semifinal 1 – Old Fashioned Cage Match

AlrightAlright Aaarrrggghhh sound machine Meatball Oatmeal PowPow Rump Roast Slushii Special Sauce Stingray joined Teasip and YHC for the QOTY Semi Final Cage Match

Teasips’s Beatdown:
One PAX carries a coupon around tennis courts

WDW

Crawl bear back, 10 mountain climbers
5 burpees, run down and back, 5 burpees
Mrs Icebox Arms – 2 min
Suicide short to long, long to short
Crab walk forward court one, 10 Freddy Mercury’s
Crab walk backward back, 10 flutter kicks
Pilate Plank Routine – 2 min

If there was mumble chatter I didn’t hear much of it as the socially distant lineup along the tennis courts didn’t allow for a lot of interaction among the PAX

Stingray fulfilled his prophecy of showing up late and having to do penalty burpees and t claps to Rump Roast for doing them with him when no one else did

AlrightAlright figured that the Beatdown was going to be mild and decided to wear his ruck vest during the whole thing, and on top of that called out the PAX on the crab walks for being slow (someone is still getting over his #upsetalert vs Teasip last week).

Apologies for needing to b line it out as soon as the clock struck 0615 but the Jeep was about to turn into a pumpkin and I had 10 minutes to get home before the M changed the locks on me!

YHC is humbled to make it to the finals and look forward to an all-timer against either Special Sauce or Coach K, let’s all find the motivation to fight the fart sack and deal with some colder temps, I can guarantee that the Q’s this week will get us up and moving quickly!

Reminder: see PowPow’s post on the food drive, if able try to find a way to contribute to those less fortunate

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

YHC prayed us out

MOLESKIN:
Since teams were in various stages of the circuit, mumble chatter varied throughout workout.  Box jumps onto table tops garnered some gasps, but the modification was gladly accepted by some.  The “silent K” nipplers also generated a few laughs/groans.  Sandbags elicited comparisons to coupons, noting they were much heavier.  Big Tex asked if the 80’s hair band playlist was an homage to the 80’s classic Friday the 13th, and YHC affirmed the choice noting creating a fun and spooky playlist was outside my wheelhouse and I found but one or two songs that would fit the bill.  Overall a good workout on a nice blustery morning.
