Christmas Goo Buster

THE SCENE: 47° and gooey. The PAX moved slow at first, feeling the collective weight of multiple days of poor dieting decisions. However, the Q had plans to right those wrongs.

Hand Release Prisoner Cell Merkin Burpees IC x 5

  • Sevens: PAX ran around the loop between the bathroom and the tennis courts, stopping at the halfway points to either perform Merkins or Squats. Reps ascended and descended at each end, always adding up to seven (obviously).
  • Mixed Doubles: PAX entered the pristinely dry tennis court and partnered up (since Billy Blanks was there). P1 performed exercise while P2 bear crawled to opposite fence and side shuffled back. Then partners flap-jacked because sharing is caring.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Never Complain, Never Explain … taken from this Art of Manliness blog. Read it.

MOLESKIN: Halpert, Peeping Tom and YHC set out at 0450 for some milez. One in our party became partially dehydrated after choosing to dress like Ralphie’s brother, despite the 47° Germantown December heatwave. Classic. The men put in the work today, and we proved that a 13-count exercise (HRPCMBs) can, in fact, be done in cadence. It probably shouldn’t have been done in cadence, but we’ve proven time and time again that we’re all a bunch of idiots (in the most loving way), incapable of making sane decisions.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Extended Coffeeteria at new Gtown Stax Pancake Kitchen on Friday. Mothership New Years Day Convergence at 7am. Bring a sad clown or three.
