There’s no need to reinvent saran wrap. I know the saying is supposed to be “there is no need to reinvent the wheel”, but the wheel wasn’t really invented, it was discovered by a clam digger. He pulled a couple of sand dollars out of the water in about 3400 BC. (back then sand dollars were about 2 feet in diameter) and affixed them to one end of a log. By pulling the other end of the log, he now had wheels. And a cart. He later invented the buggy whip but because the whole “horse pull wagon” idea had yet to be implemented, the idea sat on the shelf and never went anywhere. And so, I use “no need to reinvent saran wrap.
Point being, this was basically the same workout we did last time I q’d at fortitude. It worked then, so I assumed it would work again now. Here’s how we did it:
COP: The standard, plus a few other things while we waited for the last couple of pax.
Mosey down Tryon to the hill by the tracks for BLIMPS. 5 burpees, 10 Lunges, 15 IW, 20 Merkins, 25 plank jacks, 30 squats. In between, climb the wall and run up the hill. Stack it up, then un stack it.
Mosey down Tryon for a little fun doing peoples chair under the train tracks—air punches and rockettes.
Mosey a little farther for partner work. A runs up to the top of the hill, B does called Ab exercise. Repeat x 3.
Mosey back to the wall for a little AB work. Dolly, flutter, protractor all done with legs extended over the wall.
Mosey back for COT.
NMM: Good to have FNG’s join us today. That’s what keeps us going at workouts like this—having more people we can be of service to.
The following things may or may not have been said today:
PIPELINE: When I lived in DC, I used to climb up the Lincoln Memorial and sit in Lincoln’s lap. It made me feel safe.
CURLY: I was once really really fat. I lost weight by having my stomach removed and replaced with a Guinea pig’s stomach. I now eat pellets—3-4 a day.
AQUAFRESH: Sometimes, I count all of the seeds on a strawberry before I eat it. The average is 187.
Maradoana: I hate my nickname, but I am scared to say anything so I don’t end up being called something like Assless Chaps.
Oz: I just filled out the application to try out for “ Chippendales 40+ tour”.
Thrust: Thinking of getting a tattoo of an eye chart on my back, so I could work part time in an optometrist’s office if money got tight.
Doherty: My favorite color is plaid.
Slaughter: When I get home, I’m going to eat Lucky Charms. But first, I organize all of the marshmallows on a plate, and eat them one at a time . In order. It aids the digestive process.
FOL: I met Chuck Norris on a plane. He was knitting, and it was a letdown. Total letdown.
Jedi: I invented the Member’s only jacket, but get no credit for my work as my college roommate stole the porotype while I was sleeping.
Squalor: I have never dressed up for Halloween. Even as a kid, I refused. I think candy is a waste o time and corn syrup.
Gridlock: I once got hammered and wore diesel fuel as a cologne. Sometimes, I can still smell it.
That’s all I got. Until next time.
