The Bean 8/1

8 PAX met at Lakeshore East Park for a multi-level beatdown courtesy of RAT. There was a Denari sighting as well as Italian Job coming back for his third serving of beatdown mania. Lavender returned from playing hookie in Colorado, and Sweet Tooth biked in just before 7AM. Ladybug journeyed the long trek from Evanston while Noonan stumbled out of his front door into the park. There was also a visit from Clinger who hails from Toledo.

There was a test for pairing purposes that included 25 pushups and a lap around the park before moseying over to the top of the stairs at the north end of the park. 

1,000 Ways To Die

  • Relay style workout with PAX pairing up to complete the thousand reps. One partner would run down the 81 stairs then head back up while the other partner would be doing reps.
  • PAX were partnered up in opposite order of how they placed in the test. 
  • Reps included 100 Burpees, 200 Merkins, 300 Squats, and 400 LBC’s. 

All reps were completed by each pair with just enough time to finish up with 20 American Hammers before moseying back to the park where count-a-rama, and name-a-rama was concluded before heading to coffeteria at the Drunken Bean. 

4 PAX later gathered for some EC Tennis Club at the Maggie Daley courts where the doubles pair of RAT & Lavender secured the win over Noonan & Italian Job by the score of 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.
