AO: Ball Bearings
Workout Date: 05/26/21
To say I’ve been expecting to run myself into the ground this morning after working my way onto the Ball Bearings Q Sheet would be an understatement.
Give the mission statement, check for FNGs (1), give the disclaimer, and warm up:
Mosey around the Washington Loop, ending at the basketball court; Q juice was flowing, we stopped and (some of us) did five burpees OYO for PAX to catch up
Side Straddle Hop x20 In Cadence (IC)
Good Morning x10 IC
Imperial Walker x20 IC
Sir Fazio Arm Circles forward x10 IC, reverse x10 IC
Standard Merkins x10 On My Down (OMD)
Mountain Climbers x10 IC
Downward Dog with calf isolation stretches
World’s Greatest Stretch
1) Mosey up to the Cat House, er sorry “The House of Cats” for Elevens of WW1s and Burpees. Lots of groans when I called this, including me on the inside.
2) Mosey to the parking lot off Washington for Bear Crawl/Lunge Walk Sevens between the curbs. Hand Release Merkins and Carolina Dry Docks. Sevens after Elevens were not popular. Mosey down Washington back to the basketball court for Mary.
Dolly x10 IC
Rosalita x10 IC
Freddy Mercury x20 IC
Homer to Marge x20 IC
Flutter Kicks x20 IC
Dying Cockroach x20 IC

I’ve posted Raleigh’s original weekday workout a few times and it’s always tough. I’m honored to get the chance to lead at BB, I hope this workout met expectations. I think I woke up about every hour this morning in anticipation.
Ball Bearings has been great for picking up new exercises. I’ve gotten quite a bit of mileage out of BALLS that I learned from Science & Math (this reads much better than what I originally typed). Blue Crush’s 11s with WW1s and Burpees and My Boy Blue’s field exercises have made multiple appearances in my workouts as well. Running the Washington Loop for warm ups was straight out of Popeye’s last Q.
FNG Special came hard with his ECU fandom; he’s lucky I have a personal distaste for arch sports rival nicknames, otherwise he might’ve been Tuffy. Greenville born and bred, he works with auto auctions and his first concert was .38 Special. Tape Deck brought him out and was adamant that he not have such a cool nickname. So we shortened to “Special”, which turns out to be a much better name.
Special and Quagmire both admire Greenville BBQ, one of them admires it more than the other. They went to rival high schools, too; maybe I could’ve made a naming exception for that.
It’s hard to Q and catch all the mumble chatter, but I understand if you need a t-shirt to last twenty years, contact White Shoe. Somebody tell Larry David.
8 for Coffeeteria with special guest Chippendale, doing his best “male nurse model” impersonation.
Thanks for the coffee and the opportunity, White Shoe.
This was my fifty-first #F3Q21 #2021Challenge Q (fifty-third overall). Next Q is Friday at Rolling Stone (Ruck) in Carpex.
PAX: Ben Johnson, Fishplate, Humpty Dumpty, Joule, King David, My Boy Blue, Pigpen, Quagmire, Special (FNG), Tape Deck, White Shoe
