The Return of the Omaha Q

PAX: Aaarrrggghhh, Alright Alright, Bleep, F150, Icebox, PowPow, Slushii, Rocky (Wily Loman from KC)
QIC: Teasip & F150

AO: Glencoe Park #glencoefasho
F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given by YHC for both Q’s

SSH x15, IST x15, Vegetable pickers x12

YHC informed the Pax that he would be taking the first half of the workout, then we would Omaha the second half to a random Pax for them to Q the rest.

YHC started with a burpee mile, stopping every quarter mile for 12 burpees. Ended the last quarter mile with 17 burpees as that was the final margin for LSU over Clemson. Then partnered up with Partner One doing squats with the coupon while Partner Two ran to the playground for 5 pull ups, then run around the tennis court and relieve Partner One. Repeato until you reach 100 squats. 

At the end of the squats, the halfway point had been reached so YHC nominated F150 to take over from there. We quickly ran over to the football field for some modified BLIMPs. Did four rounds of each exercise, with a different method of transportation in between lines on the football field.

10 burpees, bear crawl to the next line, 10 burpees. Continue on until 40 burpees were completed.

10 lunges in place, with lunge walking in between. Continue until 40 lunges done.

10 squats with duck walking in between until 40 squats done.

10 merkin plank jacks, with bear crawling in between. Continue until 40 merkin plank jacks done.

Not really done *shrugs*

YHC prayed us out

YHC gave the cryptic preblast that warned there could be an Omaha Q in the gloom. After some discussion, it was decided that YHC would Q the first half and a mystery person would Q the rest. Icebox was quick to say I was following in the footsteps of my beloved Astros and cheating (YHC has no comment) and others were quick to volunteer to take the Q during the burpee mile. F150 was ultimately chosen and was quick to start delivering a rather punishing beatdown. Tclaps to him for being fast on his feet and delivering a good beatdown. This will continue throughout the month and will follow the same format to keep the PAX on their toes and to continue to challenge us.

YHC prayed us out.

It was YHC’s 44th birthday and PAX seemed to be in high spirits (although YHC believes this to be the result of sorority rush activities rather than YHC’s planned beat down). YHC put together a greatest hits playlist from 1976, which must seem like ancient history to most of the PAX (@Sally)! We commenced birthday burpees in the parking garage.  To give the PAX a reprieve from 44 straight burpees, YHC had PAX backward run up the ramps in between sets of 11 and seeing that YHC looks forward to at least another 44 years, we did another 44 burpees back down the ramps.  However, this is where things got dicey as YHC’s wish for another 44 years almost ended before it began.  As YHC descended a ramp on a bear crawl, a late-arrival for class or rush made her acquaintance with YHC with the bumper of her car!  Fortunately, she braked and I narrowly avoided becoming her new hood ornament.  Unfortunately, YHC managed to sprain his wrist in the process so happy birthday to me!  The drama receded throughout the rest of the workout with random mumble chatter about the choice of songs in YHC’s Spirit of ’76 playlist, spattering of sleet and general dissatisfaction with the pain YHC brought today.
