The BackBlast:

Merkins abounded and the mumblechatter abated during this tabata-style beatdown. 14 regular pax were joined by 4 runners; WX: 76 degrees and humid, but no precip., so it was a good first beatdown for our FNG -- heretofore known as Chipper. WELCOME!

Started with SSH, followed by a mosey (butt-kickers, high knees, nur, and toy soldiers) and Imperial Walkers before we got to...

The Thang:
50 seconds of work and 20 seconds of rest for 5 exercises followed by 2 1/2 minutes for a run around the WD parking lot
Set 1: Merkins, Long swimmers, WWII sit-ups, Moroccan Nightclubs, and Squats
Set 2: Merkins, Plank, LBCs, Overhead Claps, Speed skaters
Set 3: Merkins (sensing a pattern?), Bridge (switch legs at 30 secs if doing single leg), Banana hammocks (switch sides at 30 secs), SSH, Hello Dollies
Set 4: Merkins, Push the Rock, Reverse Crunch, Step back lunges, and CRUNCHY FROG
Set 5: Merkins, Superman, Penguins/Heel-taps, Plank jacks, and E2K (knee to elbow)

Humidity was high, but the spirits were higher!
Announcements: 6/18 - F3 Family Beach Day @ Coquina Beach (please get your expected attendance numbers to @Ripken ASAP); check the cycling channel for a Sunday ride if interested; @Chilipepper has promised something crazy in the near future, but I failed to record time/place; there is Fort DeSoto triathlon on 8/21 for any looking to get a shorter one out of the way possibly.
TaPs: Mrs. Doubtfire for ongoing procedures and treatments (good to see you today!); Usher's friend Pete and his treatments; Bing's heart and continued attendance to beatdowns, etc.; Goob's family as they navigate his grandmother's and other family members' health declines -- strengthen them and give them peace; any unspoken prayers.

Good work to those in attendance!  I'm excited to be the Monday Winn-Dixieland Site Q, so if you didn't like what we did today, please sign up, or if you liked it but thought it could be better, please share by leading.  June is good to go (I'll relenquish 6/27 if someone wants to take it), but July is wide open and I will be DR on Independence Day, so unless we close the AO for the 1776 somewhere else there might be a voluntold situation in the making.
