An Impromptu Impromptu

13 guys joined me today for a tour of Cutty (I’m trying to make that the cool way to say Cuthbertson, mostly because Cuthbertson trips me up 8 of 10 times and makes me feel like I’ve suddenly developed a lisp to go along with my poor spelling).  Ackbar reached out Wednesday to see if I would lead today.  Its not quite the shortest window I’ve been given to lead – that distinction goes to Glydah at a Chiseled workout where we decided to split the group 30 seconds before launch; but it is the second shortest.  Two days to get PREPARED (also the discussion today at Q Source), lets do this.  Disclaimer given and promised to keep pax out of each others sweat piles.  This lead to some foreshadowing from Mad Dog – “Oh great, I guess that means lots of mosey”

WARM UP (kinda)

Mosey to parking lot behind Rudy’s poop palace.  Jimmy Duggan when you arrive.  20 jump squats.

Mosey to traffic circle.  Calf stretch waiting on 6.

5 rounds of 5 different merkin exercises broken up by 20 mountain climbers in between:

  • 10 Diamond Merkins/20 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 Ranger Merkins/20 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 Wide Arm Merkins/20 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 T Merkins/20 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 Superman Merkins/20 Mountain climbers

Much respect to the guys that made it all the way through without going to their knees.  I’m still working to get there.


Grab some near by fence for 30 deep jump squats then mosey to bottom traffic circle cul-de-sac.  Find some curb for 20 scorpion dry docks.

Mosey up the hill back to traffic circle for 15 berishnicoffs each leg.

Mosey to Football parking lot and find your own parking space next to the curb.   Parking space suicides (no not lines Bottle cap).  On the out to 10 T delts and 5 Merkins.  On the back to 20 curb dips.  For those counting there were 9 parking spots heading out.  I had thoughts of audibling 3/4 the way through, especially when my shoulders were starting to ache, but figured we were close and I didn’t hear enough complaining so we pushed through.

Mosey to one of the corners for 4 corners (no, not progressive four corners Mad Dog….you can breathe a sign of relief).

  • Corner 1: 20 Soccer Heels (at least that’s what the M calls them).  Think of a standing Parker Peter where you jump and touch your opposite hand to opposite heel.  Mixed reaction on these – oh well, nice to try something new every now and then.
  • Corner 2: 20 Side Straddle Hops
  • Corner 3: 20 Jump Squats (Bottle Cap lobbied for Bobby Hurly’s but since Duke is currently fighting with UNC to see which is the dirtiest basketball program in the state ((Zion)), I said no).
  • Corner 4: 20 Mary Catherines.

Checked the watch, had more time than I thought….lets do that again.  Repeato.

Mosey up the hill towards the middle school road.  Divide into two teams – Clydesdale’s and Gazelles for Indian Runs.  I had to regroup a couple guys (cough cough: Ackbar and One Star).  Gazelles started out slow, much to the Clydesdales surprise, but quickly gained ground on us.

Bottle Cap with a slight Q Jack with sprints for the gazelles before I could get everyone circled up at COT for Abs.  Dough Boy let LBC’s until there was no time left.


  • A much more pleasant day today as the front pushed some of the humidity out.
  • Thanks for asking me to lead Ackbar.  Always a pleasure.
  • Great work from everyone today.
  • Bottle Cap slept in and decided to join Impromptu instead of chasing down Swarm.  Hopefully he felt he got his money’s worth.
  • Blue Screen going out of his way to help pick up the 6.  He also threatened me with a hug when Covid was over….I hate man hugs.
  • The respects and double respects of JWoww, Shop Dawg, Chainsaw, and Blue Screen kicked our asses today.  Boys were consistently towards the front.  I hope I’m still in that good a shape when I’m THAT old (shots fired/backhanded complement).
  • Mad Dog with some awkward moving SSH’s.  He looked like a baby bird flapping his wings for the first time trying to take the leap out of the nest.
  • We finished with 2.8 miles which was surprising to me – I thought my wienke had a solid 3 in it.
  • I missed the fact that Gerber was taking the family photo so I can be seen squatted butt towards the camera trying to set my camera up in the family photo.  Make sure you like, share, and blast away the marketing post to further embarrass me.



  • Christ Closet looking for help in building shelves this Saturday at the new red building on corner of Byrum and New town.  Bring tools to build shelves (powered drill/screw driver, tape measure, ect.).  Meet after workouts (so roughly 8:15).
  • F3 Dads Waxhaw is launching again this Saturday.  New location of New Town Elementary.  Bring your 2.0’s for a fun field workout geared towards keeping kids active while still having fun.  Roughly 3-15 years of age both boys and girls.   Juice box and doughnuts afterwards provided by Gerber.
  • F3 Dads SOB doing a 5 mile hike with 2.0’s on Saturday as well.  I didn’t catch the details other than they were meeting at a Harris Teeter (no clue which one).  Check F3Dads channel on Slack or get with One Star if you want more info.
  • F3 Mint Hill Converging to celebrate their 5 year anniversary this Saturday.  Meet at the Veterans park in Mint Hill at 7:00.  (Homecoming, Commitment, and Black Hawk all staying open, but some F3 Waxhaw guys are going to Mint Hill to return the favor of them joining us for our anniversary).
