Birthday Q Fartlek Backblast

  • QIC: Flanksteak
  • The Pax: 420, 210, Blue Hawaiian, Faulkner, Lil Wayne, McRib, Roboto, Oz, Peeping Tom, Sandbagger, Plan B, @F3FlankSteak (QIC)

12 men showed up on cool but gorgeous morning.  The  supermoon was amazing and helped shake off the cobwebs of the first Monday of DST.  Today was YHC’s 47th birthday.  The Fartlek is not my strongest AO but I needed to answer the Birthday Q bell.  We started with:

  • SSH x 47 IC
  • Imperial Walkers x 24 IC
  • Cotton Pickers X 23 IC
  • Squats x 24 OMD
  • Merkins x 23 OMD
  • Plank x 47 seconds

We then set off on a snake run down the club entrance, right on Country Club, left on the other Country Club with a stop at Norman where we repeated the warm up with different members of the PAX counting.  Continued the snake run to Meadows Park where we again repeated the warm up with different members of the PAX counting.  YHC discovered that multiple cotton pickers are not a crowd favorite.  We then did carioca down and back and high knees/butt kick down and back parking lot at Meadows Park.

Took a left out of Meadows Park did an all you got (or all you wanted to ) to the Flag with a mosey to Devonshire where we crossed the street and found our way to the bridge to the golf course.  We moseyed down hole 14 to the green where we did Plank Jacks IC x 47.  Running short on time we moseyed down hole 11, crossed over the cart path on hole 8 and wound up at the entrance to the Club where we did Mountain Climbers IC x 47.

“All you got” to employee parking lot for count and name-orama.  Took us out in prayer.   As always a pleasure and enjoyed getting the birthday started off right!

Fartlek on the Fly

  • When: 10/14/19
  • QIC: @f3FlankSteak
  • The Pax: Faulkner, Kevorkian, Peeping Tom, Sandbagger, Unicorn, Plan B, Gander, FlankSteak (QIC)

8 men showed up on what turned out to be a beautiful morning.  As 05:30 hit the rain stopped and we realized we didn’t have a Q.  Last time I Q’d the Fartlek was May 6 – also I think the last time I attended the Fartlek.   I figured as long as no one cared if the Q is your six I might as well go for it.  So, as best I remember it went like this….

We warmed up with:

  • SSH x 20 IC
  • Cotton Pickers x 15 IC
  • Imperial Walker x 15 IC
  • Down Dog stretches

Warmed up we moseyed down Club entrance with a right on Country Club for:

Indian Run to Meadows Park parking lot where Gander led the following:   Backwards run down Plank Jacks x 10 and sprint back (twice).

Right out of Meadows Park at OYO pace to fancy new brick walls and “firepit” at the corner of Country Club and Chelsea for 50 LBCs and 10 dips.  Kevorkian then led us with 20 irkins followed by Peeping Tom calling out 20 derkins.

Left on Country Club at OYO pace to Trent Woods office park parking lot for Imperial Walker x15 IC led by Unicorn and 15 WWI sit ups led by Plan B.

Snake run to Hillcrest where Gander advised the hard stop of 6:15 was getting close.  So Q called out a 20 count and we run back to Club and at OYO pace.   Hard Stop.

As always an honor to lead!
