Tabata – Table of 9 with the Appropriate Atmosphere

A mix up on the schedule and the planned Q could not.  Finding this out around 2:00 I needed to come up with something.  Oh yeah, it rained all day and called for rain in the evening.  What to do.

Aaron’s baseball scrimmage was cancelled, so he was free and “convinced” him to come.  His first official post.

Well, stay dry was the first thing which came to mind.  Luckily the school offers coverage. What to do…

Tabata!  And with music.   This is where I spent most of the time, picking the appropriate music.  Here was the play list:

  • It’s Raining Men – The Weather Girls (Inspired by Recalculating)
  • It’s Raining Again – Supertramp
  • Only Happy When It Rains – Garbage
  • Here Comes the Rain Again – Eurythmics
  • No Rain – Blind Melon
  • Rain King – Counting Crows
  • Black Rain – Soundgarden
  • Chain Lightning – Rush
  • Chain Lightnin’ – 38 Special
  • Flood – Jars of Clay
  • I love a Rainy Night – Eddie Rabbit



Rain actually stopped (or was just a little misting), so I audibled and added extra mosey in the warmup.

Mosey around both parking lots, stopping for SSH, MNC, mosey, IW, mosey to coverage.  Jimmy Dugans, Calf Stretch, and that thing where from a plank you bring a leg by your hand, then raise that hand up high…both sides.


Tabata – Exercise for 35 seconds, 25 seconds off. After each set, an extra 35 seconds rest.


  • High Knees
  • LBC’s
  • Russian Dips
  • Step Ups with opposite knee high – same leg
  • Flap Jack to other leg

Audibled and decided to mosey around the parking lot.


  • Speed Skaters
  • Dirkins
  • Heels to Heaven
  • Bobby Hurleys
  • Air Ditkas



  • Calf Raises
  • Peter Parkers
  • Donkey Kicks
  • V-Ups
  • Plank Jacks

I realized I did not plan for the extra moseys so no more of that.

Repeated Set 1.

Repeated Set 2.

Supposed to repeat set 3 again, but low on time as I wanted to ensure an end stretch – did a bunch of that.

Started Am Hammers, got through maybe 4 and the alarm sounded.

Focused on Announcements – IPC team Friday, IPC individual Saturday – both at Cuth Middle.  Blood Drive.

Named the FNG – he initially was Buzzer Beater, but that was a virtual name provided during the COVID shut down time and my normal mid-day workouts.  He wanted to experience of being given a name in the inner circle.   Double Dribble.  (We could have done better)

Was proud of him and how he was able to hang with us…   Took us out in prayer.

AND THEN SPACED THE FAMILY PHOTO.  As we are driving back, Aaron said, “Hey, we forgot the picture.”    $#&*^#%  I was not happy.

Oh well.  It’s in the books.  I guess he’ll have to post again to get in the family photo…:)
