AMRAPalooza V: Dead Men Do No Burpees

THE SCENE:
As I rolled up in the Morg, I thought to myself, “I should be sure to write my backblast today, because if I don’t I’ll forget about it for a week and by then I won’t remember much about The Scene or what happened during the workout.”  As usual, I was right:  I didn’t, and I don’t.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER:
I don’t specifically remember doing this, but no phalanges were mutilated so it must have been covered.

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH x25 IC
Daisy Pickers x15 IC
Windmills x15 IC
Little Arm Circles x10 IC (each direction)

THA-THANG:
Many moons had passed since my last AMRAPalooza, so I decided it was time for the next installment.

Complete As Many Reps As Possible for one minute of each of the following exercises; take a break between exercises by completing one 0.2 mile lap around the parking lot.  Silent prayer OYO for the Creeper van as you pass its sad, empty parking space.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I’ve been in a bit of a lull, especially with my Queen for the past few months.  I’m not where I should be after 10+ months of F3.  It makes it a struggle to fight the pull of the fartsack some mornings.

When you’re feeling like that, it’s more important than ever to keep taking the DRP.  Decide the night before that you’re going to take it – don’t wait until the next morning, when the warmth of the fartsack can make a persuasive case for staying in it.

When the alarm goes off, I know the workout is going to hurt.  But I also know that what will hurt more is the feeling I’ll have around 6:30 when I start seeing the pics on Slack of the guys that posted.  FOMO can be a strong tool – use it to your advantage.

MOLESKIN:
Always write your BB before the end of the day.  Or be less old.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Maybe.
