Deck of [only high] Cards

THE SCENE: Mid 50s.  Foggy.  Still wet from yesterday.



Squats x 15 IC
Daisy Pickers x 10 IC
Imperial Walkers x 10 IC
Arm Circles x 10 IC
Reverse Arm Circles x 10 IC

(Shout out to Captain Obvious who, like the pro AO Q he is, faithfully kept count on all of the exercises while the rest of the PAX mumbled their chatters off.)

Mosey to track.  Stop halfway for 10 burpees.  Track closed.  Omaha to adjacent parking lot.


Deck of Cards stuff.  Draw one card to determine number of “sprints” (one is one, so sprinting to the fence–just under 90M–counts as one sprint, and sprinting back from the fence counts as another sprint).  First man back draws next two cards to determine exercise and number of reps.  Rinse and repeat.

Black suits are Burpees.  Red suits are Crunchy Frogs.  Numbered cards are their own.  Face cards are 12.  Aces are 15.  The following were drawn:

  • 4 of Spades:  4 sprints
  • King of Clubs:  12 burpees
  • 9 of Hearts:  9 crunchy frogs
  • Queen of Clubs:  12 sprints
  • King of Spades:  12 burpees
  • Jack of Clubs:  12 burpees
  • Aces of Hearts:  15 sprints
  • 10 of Hearts:  10 cruncy frogs
  • King of Hearts:  12 crunch frogs
  • Jack of Diamonds:  12 sprints
  • 5 of Clubs:  5 burpees
  • 9 of Spades:  9 burpees

We drew a lot of face cards.  Our sprints may have gotten slower over time.

Mosey back to start.

MARY:  No time.  QIC got the PAX back approximately 90 seconds late.  For shame.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:  14 PAX.  0 FNGs.  Nature Boy, Steinbrenner, Moneybags, Nissan, Halpert, Black Diamond, Captain Obvious, Mudpants, Gus, Pablo, Pronto Pup, Toms, Billy Blanks, Escobar

MOLESKIN:  This was a great F3 morning!  As someone who throws a lot of shade at the suburbs, I’ll be fair and say I drove away wishing I lived closer to the Levee.  It’s a great AO with a solid group of guys.  T-Claps to Pronto Pup for covering everyone’s coffee!

Lastly, as one who has been to Sunrise, Gibsons, Ugly Mug, Einsteins, The Levee Creamery on Highland, Crave, Bryants, all the parking lots, and now The OG Levee Creamery… the OG Levee Creamery is the region’s best java joint.  Others may have subjectively superior brew, but proximity to AO combined with the fact that they had protein balls on the table and numerous cups of coffee on the counter for us before they even unlocked the door… yeah.  It’s not really even close.
