Pre-workout tweet advertised todays Centurion workout as a tough one. Fun Friday in Area 51/SOB/UCo offers several solid options. If you are the Q, you gotta step up your game and give the PAX a beating. Nobody wakes up this early to get out and lolligag about for 45 minutes. Hard work drives men from the fartsack. We circled up right where we stood for a quick and thorough disclaimer and warm up.

That was a great way to start the day. Strong work by all 18 PAX this morning. YHC was out last night scouting a nearby building to incorporate into workout, but determined that it was not safe in wet conditions. Turns out, not much was safe this morning. Slick out there today.
Purple Haze appeared sometime during the Triple Nickel. He was late and ran around until he found us. Glad he did. Pro tip: You don’t need your card at PF, they will let you in if you provide your name.
Rachel slipped on the stairs and his back found several treads. He got up and continued to dominate the workout. That may hurt later.
Lorax was up front for all of it. The man is in good shape.
Brilleaux slipped on the Bench Set Step Ups. YHC audibled in Squats shortly thereafter.
Hops is oddly curious about the reason that some men pull straight into a parking spot while others back in. This was discussed in far more detail than YHC expected when it was brought up. Hops is working on completing a study to answer this question or prove/disprove his hypothesis, whatever it may be. I hear he will compensate those who volunteer with cold IPA while completing his scientific mumbo jumbo. Be on the lookout for answers men.
Weird chatter when YHC arrived. Toolbag asked if I had a good dinner. Tagalong said my gloves were nice or something to that effect. May have had to do with Champagne ordering up the AMRAP on a previous Q. Not sure, but it was kinda weird.
Respects pushed hard, as always. Marconi, Chelms, Snuka, Shoe, well done.
Shrinkwrap and Toolbag put in a solid 45
Udder posted. He took us out in prayer.
No Show kept some gas in the tank to lead the way on the Stair runs at the end.
Thanks for the invite to Q from Margo and Udder. BTW, Margo was crushing the deck work.
Colder months see men drop off from posting. Get in touch with those guys who have not been posting. Invite them out. Most of YHC’s most memorable workouts involve adverse weather conditions. It just adds another element to the #suck of a tough workout. Speaking of tough workouts, remember that each workout you lead is a gift to the PAX. They don’t want easy, so show up ready to provide a beating.
Pray for Jennings Palmer, Bout Time’s son, during his fight against Leukemia.
NEXT WEEK at Centurion: Show up at 0500 for TRASH PICKUP around the AO.
CPR Training 02/17/2018. Madison is your Q.
