District 5 Triathlon

THE SCENE:  With IronPax going on at Blazing Saddle on Wednesdays for the last 4 weeks, I have not been able to post at Arcadia all month. So my new Wolf Pack shirt has just been sitting in the drawer for weeks, waiting for this day, to be unleashed! Glad it was (relatively) cool this morning, as the moisture wicking properties of said shirt leave much to be desired.

SSH 25x IC, Imperial Walkers 15x IC, Hillbillies 15x IC, Daisy Pickers 10x IC, Arm Circles 20x (front & back) IC, Merkins 10x IC
Individual Medley: Have 90 seconds to complete each round of exercises. If you finish early, you get to rest until next round starts. Add one rep to each of the exercises which each successive round.

First Round: 5 merkins, 5 squats, 5 BBSU, 5 burpees.  We made it through 12/12/12/12 round, then did a quick 200 yd mosey, to let everyone catch their breath.

C-L-I-M-B:  Down and back jog after each round.

I caught myself and my wife sitting on complete opposite sides of the room on Saturday night, each scrolling through our phones, paying no attention to each other. Challenge everyone to take some time each day to unplug, be it from your phone, tv, etc., and be present with whoever is most important to you in your life (M, 2.0s, parents, siblings).
By my count, we did 236 merkins today (counting the one at the bottom of each burpee, and the one in each crowd pleaser), and 276 squats (counting the ones in Lt Dans, Imp Squat Walkers, & Bobby Hurleys).

Try Individual Medley OYO, and let me know how many rounds you make it through, until you do not finish before the buzzer.

The Ghost Flag was here today, because reasons.
AOQ passed from Slots to Chuck E Cheese today.
