15 HIM gathered at West Carteret for day 2 of “Q-Week” to get better and to stretch our comfort zones even further. Having turned the reins of The Dreadnought over to Rameses a month back I was ready to sit back and enjoy as a participant only, that was until Rameses asked for me to help Q given that he’d been under the weather the past two weeks…I happily accepted the challenge!  As I began to think about the format best suited for this morning’s workout my thoughts turned to “favorite things” and what are the current and former Site-Q’s favorite exercises…knowing Rameses that was an easy one…THE BURPEE, for me well…it’s always been one of the toughest…THE SPIDER MERKIN!  So the plan was 100 of the current Site –Q’s favorite and 100 of the former Site-Q’s favorite, it was an ambitious plan but work the effort, so off we went!

Rameses offered part of the disclaimer and quickly moseyed toward the front parking lot at WCHS…mumbling the remainder of the disclaimer and mission statement as we moseyed forward…Jang was already barking!

Warmarama as follows (I think), as performed by the artist known as Rameses.

  • SSH X 30
  • Monkey Humpers X 15
  • Left over Right/Right over Left
  • Windmill X 10
  • Sungods X 10 (Each direction)

Rameses then turned the Q over to YHC…much to Madoff’s dismay.

I proclaimed the good news to the PAX that our mission today was 100 Burpee’s and 100 Spider Merkins…the group was not as enthusiastic as you would generally suspect! No time to waist, so we drop and check off the first 10 Spider Merkins on the spot!  (10 Spiders/0 Burpees)

Mosey to Glad Tidings Parking Lot.

Suicides from each parking space back to the start, perform 1 Burpee at the space and 1 at the Start per round…a total of 25 in all (10 Spiders/25 Burpees)

Drop for another round of Spiders (SC) (20 Spiders/25 Burpees)

Mosey to the Bike Path…gather at the turn, mumble chatter is starting to get aggressive.

As we work from the end of the Bike Path to the News Times building our mission was to alternate 5 Spider Merkins and 5 Burpees stopping at each light pole (or power pole or telephone pole…lots of smart a$$’s this morning) and perform 5 reps, run to the next pole and flapjack to the other workout.

(45 Spider Merkins/50 Burpees)

Once we reached the News Times lot we felt like adding some more Spiders to our tally so we circled up for the following:

3 rounds of 5 Spider Merkins followed by 5 Freddy Mercuries (IC), just to mix it up a bit.

(60 Spider Merkins/50 Burpees)

Mosey back down the bike path, hard right toward Swinson Park…Jang is angry and in desperate need of some grass so we stop at the Soccer field…time to tack on some more Burpees.

The Pax lined up on the sideline, the objective is 25 burpees 5 on each sideline with sprints between to the far sideline (or slow moseys in some cases) for a total of 25 more Burpees….Mission accomplished and back to the pavement much to Jang’s dismay.

(60 Spider Merkins/75 Burpees)

Mosey to the Tennis Courts, time to knock out some more Spider Merkins.

Three Rounds of Balls to the Wall (10 count) and 10 Spider Merkins between rounds.

(90 Spider Merkins/75 Burpees)

Drop another 10 Burpees to even things up a bit and Mosey back toward WCHS.

(90 Spider Merkins/85 Burpees)

At the MHC Elementary entrance we drop for our final set of Spider Merkins and tack on another 5 Burpees to our total.

(100 Spider Merkins/90 Burpees)

Mosey back to the Flag as fast as our feet can take us, sweeping the six in as we arrive…only 5 minutes left and 10 Burpees to go!

Drop for our final 10 Burpees) …Mission Complete 100 Spider Merkins/100 Burpees.

Mary was offered by our on Rameses.

Protractor for about 1.5 minutes….times up!

Rameses took us out with his usually profound way!

As always I was honored to have the opportunity to assist! A great start to a beautiful morning.
