9 of Meca’s, how should we put it, less hardy souls, plus the Q, gathered for a moisture enhanced beatdown at HCES. Upon his arrival the Q observed, much to his consternation, most of the fainthearted PAX seeking protection from the misting rain under the school’s front portico. This observation immediately triggered the Q’s oppositional defiant disorder, and a 45 minute beatdown in the pouring rain ensued. Here’s how it went:
Cotton Pickers (X12)
Mosey down to HC parkway, grab some wall, and do 10 muscle ups and 15 WWII sit ups (X3).
Mosey to rain and mud soaked hill, do 10-1 ladder of merkins and jump squats.
Mosey to another rain and mud soaked hill, do 8-2 ladder of burpees and WWII sit ups (I think).
Mosey to front of middle school, make sure to stay outside of the shelter, and partner up. First set: Partner 1 runs around the first island while Partner 2 does incline merkins. Rotate until complete 200 (I think). Second set, Partner 1 runs around first island while Partner 2 does air squats. Rotate until complete 250 (I think). Although this workout took place on Thursday, the Q’s lower extremities are still feeling the effects on Saturday.
Mosey back to Mary, where arrived a tad early, so did 15 burpees. Followed by Mason Twists, pretzel crunches, and maybe one or two others.
Which brings me to the title of the post. Early into the workout, when the Q resisted the desire of some (many?) to cower and hide from the rain, the monarch of mumblechatter-Disaster- made a comment to the effect that the Q had displayed the worst leadership he had ever seen. Although thankfully Disaster was not around when the Q served as social chairman of his fraternity to observe much more egregious lapses in judgment, in retrospect given our age and stage of life perhaps his comment had a grain of truth to it.
Enjoyed the experience fellas. See you next Thursday!
