The BackBlast:

At 5:13:34am, Goob ran back into the parking lot with plenty of time to spare.  At that moment, there was still no Q so he decided to rerun a not so oldie, definitely not much of a goodie, and more of a suckie.  At 5:14:50am, Steel walked up and probably wished he wouldn’t have.  Exactly 10 seconds later, Goob welcomed the PAX, recited the 5 core principles while changing shoes on the parking lot ground, and requested that someone lead the PAX on a mozy.  Clutch stayed behind and lamented his new injury and Goob not to be one-upped, discussed his as well.

Once the other 5 PAX returned from the mozy, Goob demanded all should follow him to the base of the tower.  Prior to the setup, they took a solid 5-7 minutes to stretch, perform SSH IC, Strawberry Pickers IC, Windmills IC, Michael Phelps, agitators, and arm circles.  With the boring out of the way, Goob described that he isn’t much on celebrating birthdays but seeing as how he was a last minute site Q doing his duty, everyone could relieve a modified version of his sucky 40th birthday beatdown.  The basic principle- 40 of an exercise, followed by a jailbreak, plank for the six, and repeat until 6am.   It took until approximately the second trip up the stairs for the chatter to turn to either stark silence/panting or anger/ill-will spewing towards Goob.  Dasani provided some sage advice halfway through the beatdown when he said, “nothing good comes from being comfortable.”  Wise words amidst panting, leg fatigue, and light-headedness.

The Thang-

  • 40 Merkins, jailbreak
  • 40 dead bugs, jailbreak
  • 40 Carolina Dry Docks, jailbreak
  • 40 LBC’s, jailbreak
  • 40 back rows/modified pull-ups, jailbreak
  • 40 Imperial walkers, jailbreak
  • 40 tricep dips, jailbreak
  • 40 Plank jacks

In lieu of the final jailbreak with 4 and a half minutes until 6, and with the aforementioned jelly legs and light-headedness, Goob called an audible with a round of Mary’s until 6am.  It was official, that rerun sucked.
