With the site Q (Mr. Hand) injured and placing a call for a Q for Thursday’s ground and pound I contemplated if I had the muster to Q my second workout this week.  It was quick decision so I decided to give it at go!  After all, it was to be the morning of my 21st wedding anniversary and what better way to start the day than with the brothers in the gloom.  Plus, I knew that a Cowboy ribeye from Ruth’s Chris awaited me in 13 short hours.  I better earn it.

The Warmup:  Run to the parking lot by the baseball fields for some reps of 21 – a theme for my workout

  • SSH x 21
  • Windmills x 21
  • Mountain Climbers x 21
  • Fazio Arm Circles x 21 (10.5 forward – 10.5 reverse)
  • Imperial Walkers x 21
  • Burpees x 5 OYO (no – did not call 21 but these would be continued later…)

The Thang

  • Jog to a dark and damp baseball field (some mumble chatter due to “new shoes” but we pressed on
  • Start at home plate and run to the corner, center field and corners of the outfield dropping for the called exersize – plank at homeplate until the 6 arrives
    • Standard Merkins x 21
    • WW2 x 21
    • Diamond Merkins x 21
    • Low slow flutter x 21
    • rinse and repeat
  • Next – jog to the parking lot with the trailer for a little 1/2 agony.  Start at the bottom of the hill and sprint to the end of the parking lot (maybe 30 yards) and back and do called exersize
    • Squats x 50
    • Mountain climbers x 45
    • Jump lunges x 40
    • Plank Windmills x 35
    • Carolina Dry docks x 30
    • Star Jumps x 25
    • LBC x 20
    • Jump squats x 15
    • Merkins x 10
    • Burpees x 5  (Josef called audible and suggested we do 11 to get to a total of 21 for the morning – we all obliged!!)

Mary – no time!
