Glorious gloom this morning before the rain cometh.  The PAX rolled in on fleet feet and two wheels into the FRINGE lot raring to go.  YHC wanted a team building effort that would also be a smoker to end the week so the PAX sleep well tonight.  Behold, the 7 of Diamonds.

After Wicked stopped talking through my greeting and disclaimer, we proceeded with the Beatdown.

WARMARAMA:

20 SSH IC

20 COPPERHEAD SQUATS IC

The PAX were way, WAY too talkative at this point so…

20 GOOFBALLS IC

then something experimental,

16 MARY CATHERINE COPPERHEAD LUNGES IC  (bad idea)

20 IMPERIAL WALKERS IC

Then a quick mosey to the south end of the lot, for the THANG

7 of Diamonds

Performed on a large diamond (i.e. a square);  For the first round, do 7 reps of an exercise (burpees) at each of the 4 corners with a mosey (or sprint) in between corners. Each round, increase by 7 reps with a different exercise each round, for a total or 4 rounds. Round 2, 14 four count flutter kicks at each of the 4 corners. Round 3, 21 merkins at each of the 4 corners. Round 4, 28 squats at each of the 4 corners. Time allowed us to continue for a total of 7 rounds, decreasing the reps by 7 for each of the last 3 rounds with exercises of the YHC’s choice. We did the rounds together as a group, with the every PAX having a chance to lead the group.

7 Burpees

14 Flutter Kicks IC

21 Merkins SC

28 Squats SC

21  Freddie Mercuries IC

14 Crab Cakes IC

7 Skull Crusher Dry Docks

All the PAX were able to complete the entire cycle.

MOLESKIN:

-Sometimes when a PAX is not running fast enough, you gotta come up and smack him the ass and yell, COME ON!

-Thanks to Slummy for the really slow Freddie Mercuries, not.

-The PAX ditched the suggested crab cakes and suddenly launched into a Alabama Prom Date fest.      It was awkward.

-Everyone worked their butts off today.  Nice job to all.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

-Slummy announced the not fancy but dancy EC/HC shirts and handed a sweet shirt to JR for his EC efforts, while YHC and Buck watched with puppy dog eyes and a single tear.

-Last work day for HOPE ACADEMY tomorrow at 9am.

-Hope Academy lunches every tuesday. DM Mall Cop for details

-Mentors are needed for 8 kids with 121 mentoring.  Please DM YHC or Daphne if interested.  This is really rewarding stuff, please consider serving.

-Triple Lindy next Saturday.  Come out to try to hang with Slummy or to provide medical support.

COT:  Slummy took us out. Thanks brother.

As always it was a great honor to lead you men this morning.

Aye, Matlock
