We’ll we started out his wintry morning with a 3mile EC run.

We waited for other pax to come, but no one did. ????☹️????????????. I guess the newest variant is called Fartsackitis…I’ve already got the vaccine ready for this. It’s mass produced and there will be no supply chain issues preventing you from getting THIS JAB.????????

We did the usual warm a Rama. You know, Side straddle hops, pebble pickers (or whichever variant of its name you want to use), blah blah blah.

Then it was chest and leg day. We brought some Cindys along for the fun. And lunges were a thing

The gauntlet of merkins up and over the picnic tables. Lots of different angles and stuff. Then we did Cindy incline bench, flat bench, Squeeze the pecs press, double stacked Cindy’s bench press. Basically, if I could dream it up, we did the exercise and our pecker muscles got swole (get your minds out of the gutter….????)

Then we had a challenge to see how many LBCs @10count could do in the time I did 100, since LBCs are his superpower and his #1 workplace skill on his resume. 183.

BTW. If you,ve never tried an LBC with a cinderblock resting on your chest. You should. Game changer.

When tomorrow comes, I’ll officially be 29 (43 in dog years)! And thanks to 10count for baking me a cement cake and singing the song. So special.????

Franks and Tombstone together with some weird Jeep chemistry going on and Rawhide and Cookie as the dynamic duo no one saw coming.....anyway can't help it that everyone fartsacked.

The Leland boys took over the deck at Battleship this morning, where 16 PAX ate some blocks and loops for breakfast.

Had some stretches, pebble pickers, copperhead squats, and mountain climbers for warmorama - then ran around the block.

Clockwise rotation of blocks around the horn:

  • block thrusters
  • in and out groiner/plank jacks

Then hit the hill and looped the block.

Repeato... with the variation of:

  • one arm rows and merkins
  • block swings and monkey humpers
  • thrusters and in and outs

With a smattering of merkins, dying cockroaches, and big boys together.

Who is this slim stranger blowing past everyone on the hill and finishing so quick? Drive By exploring beyond Wrightsville and making everything look easy. So glad you joined us this morning; Black Lung needed someone to challenge him.

Southie joined us for some monkey humpers and swings.

Skipper from Carpex had been rucking alone when he saw the pack running down the street from the top of the parking deck -- glad you found us brother.

Hoodwinkd is still after it. Super work.
