I worked out at 6 am this morning, and the session was led by Coach Nick. Whilst I didn’t join in on the tire flipping fun, I did partner with Stephen C. for “Partner Cindy.” I had initially planned on Steve D., Fernando, and Stephen C. flipping a coin to see who got the pleasure of partnering with me, but Steve S. insisted that Stephen C. has the pleasure of doing so.
Poor Stephen C.
Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)
– 5 pull-ups
– 10 pushups
– 15 air squats
Partners alternate activities. For example, Partner A complete 5 pushups, Partner B completes 10 pushups, Partner A complete 15 air squats (that’s 1 round), Partner B complete 5 pull-ups, Partner A complete 10 pushups, and Partner B complete 15 air squats (that’s 2 rounds).
Stephen began with pull-ups as I waited to do first set of pushups. I completed all rounds or all 3 activities in unbroken reps, and completed no less than 3 and sometimes all 5 pull-ups as reps of butterfly pull-ups. That was very good practice.
I would often complete jumping air squats toward other athletes and complete air squats with (or faster than) them. Holly, Laurie, Jaclyn, Lisa, wasn’t that fun?
Stephen and I completed 20 rounds + 2 reps; thus, I completed 10 rounds.
50 pull-ups, 100 pushups, 150 air squats
As Coach Nick needed a partner, I joined him for the 7 am session. We were more evenly matched, and worked very well together. I once again completed all rounds of reps unbroken and began all rounds of pull-ups with at least 2 butterfly reps. Nick and I completed 32 rounds + 3 reps; thus, I completed 16 rounds.
80 pull-ups, 160 pushups, 240 air squats
Uhm, Coach Jen needed a partner during the 8:30 session. Uhm, so I joined her. Jen and I were pretty evenly matched as well. I once again completed all rounds of reps unbroken as well as butterfly pull-ups and we completed 28 + 7 reps.
75 pull-ups, 140 pushups, 210 air squats
Grand Total: 205 pull-ups, 400 pushups, and 600 air squats
And I’m not the least bit sore.
Whilst coaching the 8:30 this past Saturday I said, “Be careful when putting away Abmats and yoga mats, as there are still folks completing the workout and they need keep track of 30-second plank holds. Don’t be a clock blocker.” Whilst coaching the 9:45 session that same day I said, “I hear both men and women grunting loudly and I can only imagine that this is what straight porn must sound like.”
Sarah and Evelyn hosted a baby shower for Felicia this past Saturday afternoon, and Nicholas brought his twins, Eleanor and Charlie. Nicholas first placed Eleanor on my lap. I think/feel that he and others expected a negative reaction from me and possibly from Eleanor. Uhm, kids love me, as everyone knows that I’m a kid at heart. Nicholas then also placed Charlie on my lap, and the three of us got along splendidly. Everyone, including Jeff, was quite shocked.
This past Saturday night I went to dinner at Cowfish with the Dodges (in celebration of Steve’s birthday) and Evelyn and Thom. I had a delicious beer called “Horseshoes and Hand Grendades.” By the next day the name of the beer had changed to “Horseradish and Gumbo.”
Oh, it’s “Dodges” not “Dodge’s.” Plural versus possessive, folks.
