C-No C-Lo at the Lair

THE SCENE: What a scene! As I pulled into WC Johnson Park after my road trip from East Memphis, the cloud-dappled sky was just starting to lighten. Birds were chirping. The city was lightly playing Gynt’s “Morning Mood” over the loudspeakers. A waning crescent moon clung to the Southeastern sky as if it knew of the glorious sunrise to come. 

The Lair PAX were running a tad late this morning. There was a scramble to grab CMUs and get circled up by 0530. C-Lo, meanwhile, was nowhere to be seen. 

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: Given

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH x25; Daisy Pickers x10; Imperial Walker x15; Hillbilly x15; tempo squat x10

Still no AOQ in sight.

YHC: “Anyone heard from C-Lo?”
PAX: “Nope”

So we loaded up our CMUs and moseyed! 

THA-THANG:
We stopped at Ryan’s Place Playground for three sets of…

Bulgarian Split Squats: 7 each leg
Derkins: 10

Load up CMUs and mosey to the grassy area in front of the gated community of baseball fields. As we were leaving the playground, here came C-Lo driving by. 

Partner up!

Flora 1-2-3 – like Dora, but no running:
100 derkins (feet on block); other partner holds plank
200 LBCs (CMU on chest); other partner holds feet at 6″ with block overhead
300 goblet squats with CMU; other partner holds bottom of a squat

One partner did a set number of reps of the exercise, then they swapped. 

C-Lo finally came running up when we were halfway through the squats.

Mosey waaaay back to the turf field. 

30 yard diaper carry out and back.

Tank tread:
PAX sat in a line, alternating directions. PAX passed a CMU, a 35# kettlebell, and a 60# sandbag down the line. The last man then sprints to the front, takes a seat, and resumes passing/receiving. 

Mosey back to the shovel flag, which was now planted. 

MARY:
10 weighted V-ups with the CMUs.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
7 PAX Utah, Hello Kitty, Twitty, Nature Boy, Skids, Soybean (QIC), and eventually C-Lo

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
In order to have impact, you have to take responsibility. Attempting impact without responsibility is just trolling. Take responsibility for the outcome of your community. 

MOLESKIN:
Great time this morning with the ‘ville PAX. The nitro homebrew was the icing on the cake. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
4th of July Convergence at the Mothership – 6:30-7:15 AM
