Well, it’s my first time in the Q seat. Wake up at 4 am, out the door by 4:10 am for a 20min drive. Pick up a fellow HIM on the way and arrive before the PAX arrives. It’s a little too early… Rain fell the entire previous day and Asgard is wet, VERY wet. Each step is slosh and the mosquitos are active. I’m thinking—”this is going to be fun!” Pre-set a 40m area marked by cones glowing with headlamps hidden inside, works well for a dark 5 am beatdown. 5 am rolls around and I see 1 HIM pulling into the parking lot, it’s one of our fearless Q’s, Feud. He’s always very punctual as a Q and always starts on time. Why should today be any different? It shouldn’t be, so I start the COP without him. 🙂
- SSH x20 IC
- LBAC Forward x10 IC
- LBAC Reverse x10 IC
- Imperial Walkers x10 IC
- Squats x10 IC
In keeping with the Las Vegas theme, today’s beatdown starts with a game of blackjack.
Standing on the sideline of a marked 40m, the PAX lines up.
1 merkin -> 40m run -> 20 LBC -> 40m run back to start
2 merkins -> 40m run -> 19 LBC -> 40m run back to start
3 merkins -> 40m run -> 18 LBC -> 40m run back to start
…. (each round equals 21 counts until the last count) …
20 merkins -> 40m run -> 1 LBC -> 40m run back to start
approx 1 mi run
PAX completed in about 25 mins, so we’ve got some time left.
The next workout is a round of 21s. In unison, PAX does 2-count SSH and counts reps 1-5 out loud. Reps 6-21 are all mental and everyone must stop together at 21. If anyone stops early or goes over Q has PAX perform a penalty workout of Q’s choice. Naturally being my first time as Q, I went over intentionally and we all did 10 burpees.
While in COP we continue with Dealers Choice. I’m pretty beat at this point and have no clue what we did, but I think the PAX was getting back at me. Especially with the last being Big Bird calling out Morning Wood (aka Turkish Getup).
