All Hail the Turd!

Tiebreaker day!  This was King of the Bluff week; on Monday the Old Forest had 14, and on Tuesday the Annex Turd had 14.  The first tiebreaker is number of FNGs, but neither AO had one on those days.  The second tiebreaker is that if one of the AOs was the winner in the previous month, they retain the honors.  But the Levee was last month’s winner, so the third tiebreaker was in play – whichever AO has the highest attendance on the next scheduled workout is the winner.  Old Forest had 21 on Wednesday, but Gun Show tagged approximately 43 million people in a Slack post yesterday – so who knows?

Given in full for 18 or 19 PAX.  Given briefly to Meter Maid, who arrived on Meter Maid time.  Given even more briefly to Halpert and his band of Levee stragglers, who arrived post-M.Made-time but early enough to secure a victory for the Turd.  Huzzah!

SSH x21 (5 IC, 16 silent; penalty would be assessed for not ending together)
Burpees x10 OYO (thanks, Photoshop and Gun Show)
Windmills x15 IC
Imperial Walkers x15 IC
Arm Circles x10 IC (each direction)
An unplanned round of Daisy Pickers x15 IC while we waited for Meter Maid to get out of his car and join the circle
Another round of SSH while we waited for the Latevee PAX to join the circle

Time for another ascent up Turd Mountain.  Slow mosey around the 1-mile jogging trail, stopping approximately every 0.1 miles for exercises.  1 at the first stop, repeat that one and add another at the second, and so on.  Here are the exercises:

  1. 5 Burpees
  2. 10 Merkins
  3. 15 BBSU
  4. 20 LBCs
  5. 25 Squats
  6. 30 Carolina Dry Docks
  7. 35 Alternating Shoulder Taps
  8. 40 SSH
  9. 45 Overhead Claps
  10. 50 Mountain Climbers

We saw ignored a flash of lightning around stop #3.  At stop #7, another flash was accompanied by rolling thunder, so we decided to ENDEX at that point.  I guess the Corps don’t get theirs today.

Totals completed:  35 Burpees, 60 Merkins, 75 BBSU, 80 LBCs, 75 Squats, 60 CDD, 1 mile(ish) run (took a shortcut back to the Shovel Flag)

Thor stole it from us.

If you died tomorrow, would your M know how to log into your bank account?  Does she know who to contact about your life insurance?  Does she know how to access the 401k?  If the answer to any of these (and a hundred other) questions is “No”, you need to fix that.  Write down detailed instructions and put it in a safe or safety deposit box.  Important:  let her know those instructions exist and where to look for them.

**EDIT**: Meant to include a link to Dave Ramsey’s Legacy Drawer for a handy list of items that should be included in your list.

I was going to blame Backseat for the weather stoppage, but I think we fired him after the last time.  We need a new Weather Q.

St Jude Marathon is tomorrow!  See the Event Weekend Preblast for details on several 2F opportunities, like Crosstown tonight at 7pm.
