Patton’s Philosophy

31 PAX (including two FNGs) gathered this morning for an experiment to test Patton’s philosophy that the body is never tired if the mind is not tired. Considering the number that showed up this morning and endured the workout, I would say he was right.

PAX: Sludge, Cube, Man Hands, Thin Mint, FNG – Thumper, Blue Hen, Fortran, Dr. Evil, Yoyo, Tarde, Bambi, Kay, FNG – Jitterbug,  Flounder, Far Side, Florida, Spicoli, Tenderfoot, Deliverance, Epstein, Gilmore, Lucky Charms, Walle, Red Hot, Sprinkler, Checkbook, Water Wings, Dean (Soulmate), Pacer, Mulligan & Shear Conn (Q)

Warm-a-rama: We moseyed to the cul-de-sac for 20 SSHs and 15 Cotton Pickers, Then another short mosey for 15 Ave Vigodas and 15 Imperial Walkers.

The Thang: Moseyed up to the track for 3 rounds of 10 pull-ups, 5 bear crawl uphill/ crab walk downhill, 10 WWIIs, 10 Mt. Climbers (In cadence), 10 Lt. Dans.  Followed up with a Shear Conn roll to the center (Moved out before LBCs commenced.)

Next moseyed up to the benches for 10 Dips,run,10 American Hammers, run, 10 Urkins, run, 10 LBCs, run, 10 Derkins, run, 10 Monkey Humpers. Rested in plank position.

Next moseyed to front yard and lunged to cone, 10 burpees, run to next cone, 10 burpees, lunge to sidewalk

PAX then moseyed back to the BB court for Mary. (Along the way, a few couldn’t help but doing a few Monkey Humpers for the passing traffic.) Due to lack of time, Mary was shortened to 15 LBCs & 20 Merkins.

Reflections of a Virgin Q: At first There were sounds of Madonna singing ” Like a Virgin Q….” running through my head.

However, it quickly turned into

Well – maybe not that bad. It was fun and I look forward to the next Q.

It was an honor to lead this morning and to be a part of such an outstanding group.

As for Patton: The body is now controlling the mind. I think I’ll take a nap.
