This Saturday, come see what critics are calling the blockbuster of the century… Starring Mimbo Day-Lewis…




I wrote a longer more mushy post but lost it all in a google chrome tab management catastrophe. This will be brief.



21s (5 SSHs in cadence, followed by 16 silent reps. It was done perfectly by all, so no penalty burpees)

Vinyasa flow – Shout out to MaryLou

5 Burpees in Cadence

Mosey to Thang 1 at Lake Shore Park

Thang 2 (same spot)

Ultimate Burpsee

“Similar to ultimate frisbee but with penalty burpees. On the 1st turnover, 5 burpees for all PAX. On the 2nd turnover, 4 burpees. On the 3rd, 3 burpees. On the 4th turnover, 2 burpess. On the 5th turnover, 1 burpee. If neither team has scored, the remainder of the point is played like regular ultimate frisbee. Burpee count resets after every point. You do not have to wait for all PAX to finish burpees to begin playing (i.e., it is advantageous to finish your burpees faster). Usually played for about 20 minutes.”

We played for 15 min

Mosey back to the bean


3 Burpees

COT, big time welcome to FNG-Tebow, a man from Bulgaria named Stephen who has never heard of the Mets Triple-A baseball player/Heisman winner

The theme of the workout was There Will Be Burpees. And there were. Third time as Q went a lot smoother than the first two. I’m really honored to have the opportunity to lead a group of people I respect so highly, especially the older PAX. We had some fun, worked hard, and got a little better.

I’ll leave with this video I watched last night for probably the 50th time, a speech by David Foster Wallace titled This Is Water ( which inspired my closing words during the COT. The only thing that’s True with a capital T is that we get a choice of what to think about and what to do about it. *presses save again to avoid second catastrophe*
