Weather: 77 degrees, humid
The Monday after the first week of the NFL season always brings out the best and worst of the pax. At least the Lions are not getting out of their comfort zone (last place) anytime soon.
At 5.15, core principles and disclaimers were recited and then it was off for a mozi around the parking lot, although it took only about 5 steps before Pudge began to complain that it was too long. Ignoring that, we kept going and did high knees, butt kickers, carioca x2, nur and toy soldiers. Then came the COP with strawberry pickers, windmills, SSH, imperial walkers and maybe something else.
The main beatdown was simple, but effective. We paired up for a dora consisting of the following exercises:
- 100 gas pumps
- 150 Hello Dolly
- 200 overhead claps
- 250 LBCs
- 300 Moroccan nightclubs
Base camp for the exercises was the sidewalk that took you straight to the Winn Dixie liquor store, which unfortunately was closed. Partners not doing the exercises would run to the sidewalk that went to the Winn Dixie itself, which fortunately was closed, where you had to do 10 merkins before running back.
Quote of the day was from Brutus, who at one point when running back to the sight of 5 pax doing Hello Dollys, remarked “That’s not the most pleasant thing I’ve ever seen.” A pretty strong statement from someone who had just returned from California, where he was running black ops for the Kaitlyn Jenner campaign for Governor (You didn’t hear about that? That’s why they call it black ops). Other than that, the mumble chatter was pretty tame, meaning that the pax were either bored or very far out of their comfort zone with the amount of counting they had to do for all those reps.
After the dora was done, we had time for a set of 11s with Carolina drydocks and side straddle hops, then a set of 7s featuring jump squats and big boy situps.
- Wildpax, first week of December
- Pax members running triathlons, marathons and other stupid things
We had several prayers and praises, and were on our way.
