Backblast #890 – The B-52’s and the Love Shack


AO: Ideal Park
Workout Date: 03/31/2022
QIC: Kraut
PAX: Mad Cow
Pre-Blast: All you get for an Ideal Park pre-blast is this: I made a 45+ minute play list of covers, remixes, and derivatives of the B-52’s hit “Love Shack”
I encourage everyone to post at HH, but if you hate yourself as much as I apparently do, please HC here. No coupons.

Q’s Update at 6:00pm – Ideal Park Crew – Be prepared to execute my plan regardless of weather. There will be minimal shelter, meet in the Ideal parking lot even if the street is flooded (park at the church). Plan accordingly. If that’s not your speed, there’s always Hospital Hill…

5 Core Principles: Free of charge | Open to all men | Held outdoors, rain or shine, hot or cold | Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion with no training or certification necessary | End w/ a Circle of Trust

The Thang

Inspired by the fact that Toto had named the small enclosed shelter at Ideal Park the “Love Shack” YHC planned an entire beatdown based around the song. It was pouring rain and there was minimal shelter in the plan, which made it all the more fun. In the song “Love Shack” The B-52’s state that there is a “15 Miles to the Love Shack” sign. Thinking that 15 miles was a bit much for a 45 minutes workout, YHC plotted a 1.5 mile run, with song themed workout stations along the way. I arrived at the AO about 20 minutes early to staple signs to telephone poles along the route with the location and exercises.
