Suns-Out-Guns-Out Prep at the Levee

AO: The Levee

PAX: Raven, Slicnut, Harry Caray, Homie, Billy Blanks, Woody, Captain Obvious, Rabbit, Snowman, Own Goal (FNG), Soybean (QIC)

THE SCENE: 49*, drizzly

Did that

SSH IC x20, Daisy Pickers IC x15, Imperial Walkers IC x15
Walk to Slicnut-Dispensery to collect cheese (bricks – 2 per PAX)
SSH w/cheese IC x20 – set bricks down

The Merkin Mile
Mosey around high school, stopping every ~.25 mile for 25 OYO merkins (100 total). At each stop, we “rested” by doing plank, mountain climbers, overhead claps, and Al Gore, in that order, while waiting on the six.

Catch Me If You Can
After the mile was complete, at the east parking lot, PAX partnered up. Partner 1 runs South backwards, naturally. Partner 2 does 5 burpees, then sprints to catch P1. Partners then switch. We went 200 yards South, then repeated going North. Mosey back to bricks. 

Smoked Shoulders with Cheese
PAX collected their original two bricks, and performed the following, all in cadence:
SSH x10, overhead claps x20, SSH x10, lat raise x15, SSH x10, American hammer x15, SSH x10, shoulder taps x10, SSH x10, squats x20, SSH x10, lat raise x15, SSH x10, overhead claps x15

Crowd Pleaser: 1:1 ratio of merkins:groiners, ascend reps up to 4:4, then back down to 1:1 (16:16 total) – PAX and YHC hated this one
Hello Dolly x22, Rosalita x22, Pickle Pounder x10
Crowd Pleaser all over again
Evil Lance Armstrongs x20 (CPT Obvious)
ABCs OYO (Woody)


CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Proverbs 16:32 says “Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.” Increasing strength and stamina is great, but if you can’t control your anger and your emotions, it won’t matter. High Impact Men rule their spirits. 

Shout-out to Own Goal for keeping at it, Billy Blanks for not being scared of getting wet, and Slicnut for keeping an eye on the six and bringing the bricks. Meter Maid must have detected all the SSH we were going to do and fartsacked.
