There was so much material that it was hard to choose one backblast title…

This morning started out with YHC being very confused when my alarm wen off at 4:30am. I hit snooze and thought, “I’m definitely fartsacking today.” Fortunately for me (because I know the pax would’ve been relentless had I fartsacked my Q – see Skywalker and its pax), I came to my senses. On the drive over to The Ridge, I realized that I did not have a particular workout planned. However, I did know one thing. I did NOT want to do a lot of running. BRR training has made me stronger and faster this year…but has also kicked my butt! When I arrived at 5:29am (come on, this is me we’re talking about), I gave the one minute warning and mumbled something about no #soccerarms. One of the pax responded with, “huh?” I ignored him, gave the disclaimer, and we were off!

But not all of us! It appears that I’m not the only MeCa man that rolls in right on time. There were at LEAST three cars that sped in ignoring the speedbumps. By the end, there were 18 of us Anyway, back to the beatdown:

Warmorama/The Thang:

1 Burpee
2 Burpees
3 Burpees
10 MC IC
4 Burpees
10 CP IC
5 Burpees
10 LBCs IC
6 Burpees
10 Reverse Crunches IC
7 Burpees
10 Mericans IC
8 Burpees
10 Pretzel Crunches (R)
9 Burpees
10 Pretzel Crunches (L)
10 Burpees

A few things to mention here. Typically, I do this warm-up when I anticipate lots of mumblechatter from the pax. However, the burpees actually seemed to make them talk MORE…or perhaps it was the random and frequent whiffs of marijuana smoke that we kept getting…at 5:30am. What in the world is going on in Hburg? Do the teachers need to self-medicate before teaching the 2.0s? Was @Dick Tracy sneaking a few puffs while YHC wasn’t looking? I had to turn and watch him to be sure. I’m still not sure. @Gamma kept saying it was grass clippings…which made me immediately suspicious of him. Wrong type of grass brother.

Plank walk to the next curb and back
Bear crawl to the next curb.
10 Air Squats IC
Bear crawl back

Count off in 3s to get in groups of…3?

LOTS of mumblechatter ensued here…you see, burpees confuse everyone, including the Q. Even if the Q is an accountant that should know how to count.

10 burpees to quiet the pax down

Get in groups of three (successfully this time). Each group completes the following as a group.

100 Squats
150 Mericans
200 LBCs

One man runs the whole time. Sorry fellow BRR runners…I tried but couldn’t avoid it.
Plank it up when done (or nap, which one group seemed to do). @Dick Tracy did neither of these. Instead he mumbled something about grown men still using UNC email addresses? #goheelsforLIFE

Now count off by 9s…forget that. Just find a buddy.

10 burpees for good measure

Partner wheelbarrow to 2nd light pole and switch as needed with 10 squerkin penalty.
Some pax didn’t explicitly call BS…but kinda did since they didn’t do it… They DID lunge walk which was cool. #modifyasneeded.

For those who did partner wheelbarrows down, lunge walk back. For those who lunge walked down, partner wheelbarrow back..

Mosey back to the Hburg shovel flag for Mary:

Homer to Marge medley including rosalitas, low flutters, and low dollys.



Thanks for being welcoming this morning for my Hburg VQ…even if that welcome included lots of mumblechatter. I didn’t know many of you which means I’ll need to keep coming back until I do! Special thanks to @Gamma for sending me the names.

F3 Dads at Highland Creek on Aug 27th.
Some other stuff @Dick Tracy said…include in the comments.

Have a good rest of your days!

    There’s not much that shuts @Gamma up!! I’d have said @SoloCup too but he still doesn’t post on Thursday’s apparently.

    Dude, I’m willing to lay off the accountant-can’t-count jokes. And even the height jokes. But I still find it funny you were excited about Q’ing here because how big the place was, yet we stayed in a 100 square foot area.

    But seriously, thanks for coming down and putting up a solid workout. In the interest of full disclosure, though, I maaaay not have done all 75 Burpees. I’m sure @Clueless, @Bull, @Othello or @HKP did extras, so it’s all good, right?

    Last I saw, @UCB was bagging up some of those grass clippings….

      I knew you’d say that. Don’t worry, I’m getting back on the sign up genius next month post BRR.
