No Stopping Short

A mighty 2 for an epic beatdown on Easter weekend at Indy. Here’s what we did:

Warm-up mosey down Elizabeth Ave to the Capt. Jack park for COP:

  • SSH x 25 (with good suggestion by H.E. that we don’t face each other as it would look weird to passersby since it’s just two of us)
  • IW x 25
  • Merkins x 15

Head to Midtown Park with a stop along the way to pick up a coupon – size matters.

At Midtown Park:

  • 10 goblet squats with coupon, bear crawl across the width of the field, then run around the perimeter of the park
  • 10 goblet squats, 15 curls with coupon, bear crawl, run around the perimeter
  • 10 goblet squats, 15 curls with coupon, 20 overhead triceps press, bear crawl, run around the perimeter
  • 10 goblet squats, 15 curls with coupon, 20 overhead triceps press, bear crawl, run around the perimeter
  • 10 goblet squats, 15 curls with coupon, bear crawl, run around the perimeter
  • 10 goblet squats, bear crawl, run around the perimeter

Drop off the coupons and head back to the AO the way we came.

Stop at the stone bleachers for some H.E.-led Mary, with feet hanging off the edge of the top wall. Crowd-pleaser, and by crowd I mean YHC.

NMM:

  • YHC was starting to suspect I’d be alone this morning, until H.E. comes wheeling in to the parking lot at 0700 in a black Chevy Malibu. It almost looked government issued, but alas was just a rental car. Some guy recently thought it was a good idea to cross the double yellows and run into H.E. instead of risk bumping into the car stopping in his own lane. No injuries, but H.E. is now in the market for a new car. Chevy Malibu is not currently on the short list.
  • YHC was called out for stopping short on the bear crawls – nowhere to hide when there’s just two of us. “Hey Os, I was wondering why you always stop 10 feet before the finish line…” I don’t know, I just do, I guess. Well, YHC made a commitment right there to stop stopping short. Appreciate the nudge, H.E. #ironsharpensiron. Or in this case, perhaps, iron sharpens soft and malleable metal. I did miss the chance in the moment to reference one of the great Seinfeld memes, so am using the video in this backblast to fix that.
  • Mileage today: unsure. YHC didn’t start the GPS until we were a half mile or so in, and then didn’t turn it off until 4 hours later while I was sitting on the couch. So we did somewhere between 0 and 13.48 miles. Probably closer to 3.
