Cupid’s Hangover

A cold 13 degrees, plus wind chill. A nice layer of snow on the streets made for a pretty, and maybe a little slick, drive. We still had 8 Pax show for the Warm-O-Rama and 2 came sliding in after. 3 paved the way with a Pre-Ruck. 2 may have done donuts in the parking lot on the way out.


Disclaimer delivered. Extra disclaimer – I wanted to make it challenging for everyone, so I knew I would not keep up with my own workout.

The theme was the CUPID Hangover, since it was the day after Valentine’s Day. We moseyed to the end of the parking lot, then did a Cupid’s Arrow (AKA Slingshot) to Wolf River then back to the parking lot in front of Baseball fields. We stopped for 10 Merkins and 20 Squats at the halfway point.

Box of Chocolates – You never know what you are going to get. We had two lines in the snow about 20 yards apart. I used an app with dice to determine each workout. Two dice had Merkins, Burpees, Squats, Big Boy sits ups, American Hammers and Body Builders. The other die had Bear crawls, crab crawls, lunges, sprints, and hops. We did 11s. One die would determine the workout on the 1st snowy line, another die would determine how we traveled to and fro the next line and then the third die would determine the workout on the other line.

After we completed the 11s, we Moseyed around the parking lot and back to the flag.

Cupid Shuffle Plank – cued by lyrics to the Cupid Shuffle, we did high planks, pickle pounders, side planks, leg kicks, and mountain climbers.

10 strong for the snow-covered streets.

Talked about perspective and the life we live is shaped by our outlook. We determine our attitude in any situation. Today was a great example of PAX all over the city showing up with a good attitude and the drive to build mental and physical toughness. I found a quote that summed it up perfectly and may be my new motto. “Men are disturbed not by the things that happen, but by their opinion of the things that happen.” Epictetus

The box of chocolates was a little unorganized. I made some rookie mistakes. We could have skipped the mosey at the end and had a little more time for Mary.
