Q – ……
There was no Q today. No one stepped up. Today marked our 52nd consecutive Saturday workout at Delco Park, completing our first year. But with no Q, Faucet and I rolled uncontrollably on the ground in anguish crying, “No Q! No Q?! Whatever will become of us???”
Yeah, right. We took turns….
We started with a mosey around the pond. Twice. A year ago I don’t think I could last a quarter of a mile. Last October I know I fell short on a half mile run. In January I made it around the half mile trail. Today: a full mile non-stop.
Yes, I’m bragging. But not on my physical prowess. I have made progress over this last year because a group of guys have been willing to get together on Saturday mornings (and Mondays, too) and sweat together. It works.
We slowsied to the memorial area where we rotated through:
- pull-ups/chip ups
- declined/inclined crunches
- Bulgarian slit squats
- inclined Merkins
Back in the parking lot we moved to some shoulder mobility movements with PVC poles and weighted ball bats, followed by:
- Imperial Walkers
- Air Squats
Another mosey to the gazebo for a final round of Merkins.
Count-o-rama (didn’t take long…)
It doesn’t take a big group to get better. All it takes is showing up.
