Well That Was Interesting

As I was in the shower last night, I had an epiphany:

 

So the call went out on GroupMe:

 

Apparently Smithers texting Deflated after that:

 

And Zinfandel:

 

So we found ourselves with 7 pax that heard the call and came with their cinderblocks.  Except Dasher when I asked him if he brought his:

 

And Deadwood, this is his response about GroupMe:

ya right!

 

So DICCS were given, and we head out for a hot lap around the middle school and then back to COT for some warmups:

  • SSH, IW, Calf Stretch, Little Baby Mountain Climbers

Mosey w/ blocks down the path to Rudy’s Shed:

  • at every light 2 blockees

 

Got to Rudy’s Shed, decided to try something new… Blonkey Kicks x 30

(Basically a donkey kick but your hands are on the block on the ground creating a lower starting point for your feet and forcing you to kick up higher on the wall)

 

Then we decided to kick it up a notch and mosey with our blocks all the way to the HS parking lot by the rock pile and line up:

 

  • 5 man-maker burpees with broad jumps over the coupon between burpees
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back.
  • Grab your coupon and run to the next line for 5 more man-maker burpees with broad jumps over the coupon
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back
  • Keep going until you have hit all 6 lines
  • 30 total

 

Same idea back the other way

  • 10 block swings at the start
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back.
  • Grab your coupon and run to the next line for 10 more block swings
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back
  • Keep going until you have hit all 6 lines
  • 60 total block swings

 

Same idea back the other way

  • 15 cinder curls at the start
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back.
  • Grab your coupon and run to the next line for 15 more cinder curls
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back
  • Keep going until you have hit all 6 lines
  • 90 total cinder curls

 

Same idea back the other way

  • 10 block derkins at the start
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back.
  • Grab your coupon and run to the next line for 10 more derkins
  • Run to the end of the parking lot and back
  • Keep going until you have hit all 6 lines
  • 60 total block derkins

 

Hot Lap around the lower lot

  • 15 block situps with overhead press in cadence

Hot Lap around the lower lot

Mosey with block to traffic circle

  • 10 block situps with overhead press in cadence
  • Hot lap down around other traffic circle and back

Mosey with block down path to sidewalk

  • 10 block situps with overhead press in cadence
  • Hot lap up sidewalk, up steps, and down path back to blocks

Mosey with block down sidewalk to Rudy’s shed

  • 30 more blonkey kicks

 

Almost there!

  • back up the path with block to COT
  • stop at every light for 2 more blockees

 

Done!

 

Great Job Everyone.  We covered about 1.6 miles running with our blocks today in addition to the other miles and exercises.

 

 

Small group today but sometimes a small (<10) group can be more intimate and be more of a push.  Lots of encouragement and friendly rivalries out there today.

 

Dasher and Hurry knocked it out of the park today and were pushing each other at the front.  Think a cinderblock slows Hurry down? HAHAHAHAHA, yea right.

 

Easy button must have been sandbagging lately because he was pushing the pace for everyone, especially when running with his block

 

Sugar Daddy showed up with his new block from Centerfold and was showing it off to everyone.  Then he crushed the workout.

 

Ice 9 didn’t have a cinderblock but instead showed up with a 50lb kettlebell, no thanks, and great job

 

Deadwood.  4 posts in one week?!  He loved the encouragement today and let’s keep the streak going…
