Friendships in Bad Weather


February 6, 2020

AO: The Highlands

Q: Jag

PAX: Trolley, Toolbox, Lucius and DRPAX ScreenTime

Warm-Up: SSH, LBAC; Imperial Squat Walkers; Windmills; Potato Pickers; Willy Mays Hays; and Lateral Bear Crawl Burpee.

The Thang (a/k/a the “Recommendations”):  The PAX moseyed to the Costco and performed Dips, Derkins and Repeater Knees on the blocks outside the parking garage.  They then ran up the garage stairs to the roof to execute Diamond Merkins, Flutterkicks and the first element of the Deconstructed Burpees – the Squats.

The PAX descended via a quick mosey down the garage ramps to Level 4, where they completed Carolina Dry Docks, LBCs and the second element of the Deconstructed Burpees – the Leg Thrusters.

The PAX then returned to terra firma and got their commute on by moseying to the Pentagon City Metro station entrance.  There, they did the third element – Merkins – and did an Al Gore as they rode down the escalator.  (Standing to the right, natch.)  At the Metro station, the PAX performed Walking Lunges (sorry Toolbox!) and a Bear Crawl.

After emerging from the Metro, the PAX continued their mosey to the nearby park to complete Offset Merkins, Plank Jacks and the fourth element – more Leg Thrusters.  The PAX then moseyed back to the Highlands for more Dips and Derkins.  Finally, they completed the Deconstructed Burpee with Jump Squats.

Mary: Nolan Ryans and James Bonds.

COT:  Winston Churchill said “One always measures friendships by how they show up in bad weather.” Indeed PAX, I was planning the Q the previous night and saw that the weather was going to be . . . sub-optimal.  However, I knew that my friends would be out there, rain or shine, so I knew that I would be there as well.  This cannot be overstated.
