Stupid but effective

THE SCENE:
Mighty Breeze on the Mississippi River bluff.  A few cars in the parking lot, and the lights were on inside the Spaghetti Warehouse.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: Done

WARM-O-RAMA:
Side Shuttle Burpees: 5 IC SSH followed by 2 Burpees OYO, immediately after the Q starts counting cadence for more SSHs. Then once we get to 5 SSH again we drop down for 2 more burpees.  We did 7 rounds.  The pax were complaining about being cold prior to starting the workout, so YHC obliged in helping warm them up.  Altar Boy called this exercise stupid, but effective, I’ll take it.
Daisy Pickers IC x10

THA-THANG:
Merkin Mile up to Martyr’s Park  (25 merkins at each 1/4 mile, total 100)
11s Box Jumps and BBSUs at the benches near the Martyr Statue
Overhead Clap Mile on the way back (25 Overhead claps each 1/4 mile,  1 set OYO other 3 done IC)
Race the bluff up (Quick up the stairs)

Various SS-Burpees spread out to keep the pax together.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Speaker gave a great quote on New Year’s Day during COT that talked about attitude and perseverance.  It reminded me of a different quote with a similar message: “You may not always choose the path you walk in life, but you always choose the manor in which you walk it.” – John O’Leary  How you respond to life’s events and your attitude say a lot about who you are.

MOLESKIN:
Lots of great mumblechatter, from the HIM present.  At one point Altar Boy mentioned that the Eastern Memphis/Germantown pax were a lower quality than the inner-loopers.  He miss calculated the who was on Q, we quickly doubled up the reps after that one.  Although he admitted to only venturing outside the loop to post twice…
