A cool rainy day greeted 9 Pax who made the decision to get better this morning. YHC arrived early to find Azul and the two-man clown car of Epoxy and Mr. Rogers ready and waiting. Flag planted as Paper Cut, Zima, Swirly, Pig Pen and Master Builder all rolled in. Great group. Rain? What rain? As the clock ticked down and no Costco in sight, YHC noted grumblings of “not feeling it today”, “maybe we could take it easy”, “we could just stay under the shelter”, and “just call it a day and go get some coffee”. After Epoxy finished, it was time to go.

Jog around parking lot, making our way to the basketball courts.

Last night while thinking of what to do today, I saw a post about the good old Tabata. Haven’t thrown that out it awhile. How about we do that. And how about we only do that. Tabata timer app downloaded. This will either be great, or a total failure. FYI: A Tabata is 8 rounds, with 20 seconds of exercise, and 10 seconds of rest. EASY. Now, if I can just get this app to work…in the rain…with gloves on…

Warm-Up Tabata
SSH, Imperial Walkers, Mtn Climbers, Windmills, and Repeat. Beep, Beep, Beep.

Jog down the trail, cut through the nice dry shelter. Mumble chatter sounded something like “I’m just going to stay here.” But Epoxy followed anyway. Continue to the rocks. Grab a good one.

Rock/Wall Tabata
Curls, BTW, Squat to Overhead Press, Inverted Mtn Climbers (crowd pleaser), and Repeat. Beep, Beep, Beep.

Drop your rock, jog down to the soccer field.

Field Tabata
Fast Feet, Spiderman Merkins, Squat Jumps, The Nippler, and Repeat. Beep, Beep, Beep.

All you got up to the shelter.

Shelter Tabata
Alternating L/R Step-Ups, Irkins, Flutter Kicks on Table, Dips, and Repeat. Beep, Beep, Beep.

All you got back to the basketball court. At this point YHC had about had it with the Tabata timer app. Most of the time it was fine, but I was ready to ditch it and move on. “We’ve come this far. Let’s finish it.” Finally, some sound mumble chatter advice. Thanks Epoxy.

Court Tabata 1
LBCs, American Hammers, Dying Cockroach, Freddy Mercuries, and Repeat. Beep, Beep, Beep.

Court Tabata 2
Burpees, Burpees, Burpees, Burpees, and Repeat. Beep, Beep, Beep.

Name-o-rama, Announcements, and Prayers

Great work by everyone today.
Always an honor.
