QIC: Mr Jinxy
THE SCENE: Sunny, slight breeze, mid 60s… not bad. Not bad at all.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
My BACKBLAST disclaimer is that I’m writing this for Mr. Jinxy, who was crying about doing one. “I don’t know how to do it… the line spacing is all messed up… do I need to do it? Wah wah wah…” So I’m just doing it for him this time. THIS time.
I think he got through the welcome and disclaimer without too many screw ups. I was Q2 for the beatdown, due to having more than 10 people show up (#covidsucks), and was frantically scanning the workout he printed out and handed me, oh, five whole minutes before starting. Gave me PLENTY of time to try to figure out what the <radio edit> he had in mind.
We did some warm up stuff. I recall SSH, Cherry Pickers, Tempo Squats, BACs… again, I was trying to kind of stretch and decipher his workout at the same time.
Mosey down Roadshow Run. Nickle/Dime/Quarters along the perimeter trail (run 1 light, do 5 reps of exercise, then 2 lights do 10 reps, then 5 lights, do 25 reps). Exercises: American Hammers, Burpees, Merkins, CDDs, Bobby Hurley’s, BBSs.
Mosey to Field of Dreams. Bernie up the hill at the side of the field 3 times, doing 20x jump squats, deep squats, star jumps.
Four corners around Field of Dreams. Run one long side, Bernie the other. Bear Crawl on the short sides. At the corners to 10x BBS, Flutter Kicks, Hello Dolly’s, Elbow to Hand Planks.
Mosey to the bench on the hill near the Admin Building. This was a long uphill mosey, and the suck factor was pretty high. Brick almost lost it, but he held on like a champ. Abscess: “I would NEVER do this all by myself.” I heartily agree.
Capain Thors, Leg Lifts, maybe one other thing? I was kind of making stuff up at this point. Jinxy’s group was late (sooo typical), so it was just us doing the Mary.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
15 Strong, including two FNGs (one of whom was Pluto’s 2.0), who we named Utah and Crank Bait.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Jinxy had a bad day and told us all about it. We were super sympathetic. He said something really awesome about getting joy out of setbacks. I’m getting a #&%^-ton of joy out of the setback of having to write his backblast. That’s for DANG sure.
Impressed with the strength of Brick’s stomach, but was a bit disappointed about not witnessing merlot spillage. Nice to see a good crowd out in the Fake Gloom.
