Moleskin:

Close to a record turnaround time for me on a backblast. I felt a considerable amount of pressure from Gummy who trolls reads nearly every BB and chimed in on my last Joust Q which he didn’t attend. I know, I know, he kids because he loves. Although this was 3 months ago, he has the memory of a sloth… or maybe he just reminds me of a sloth with his SSH form. Either way, he didn’t take kindly to my F3 geographic terminology and made that aware again last night on Twitter. Ductwork pleaded for him not to poke the bear and Header and Dollywood audibly followed up YHC’s instructions with “who made him so mad” comments. Blame Gummy for the pain this AM. I threatened to make it an all hill workout in spite, but remembered that if I don’t want to do it I can’t Q it. In all truthfulness, I always try to script a challenging workout that pushes you past your comfort zone. Otherwise, why else do we wake up several hours before the rest of the world? The camaraderie and perseverance we gain by pushing through difficult workouts together is second to none and I appreciate you all for getting after it this morning. When I first called out 25 durkins PER pax, much mumblechatter was heard and clarification needed. But everyone pressed on and little did they know that was the ‘easiest’ part of the workout.

Notes/takeaways:

We really should think about naming the hill behind the end zone. Opine below.

Dollywood is a beast

Header left early, mid hill 11s but told me beforehand and that it had nothing to do with my Q

Smokey was unrecognizable not wearing a Tennessee hat

Rookie mistake by Chin Music to not wear gloves – think it was 39 degrees

Baracas said it was the worst 2 miles he has done in a long time (I concur)

Thanks for partnering Funky – great work on the derkins and good luck to your M this weekend at her speaking engagement.

Red card, Sweeney todd, and Scully great work out there and to meet you. SYITG soon

Thanks to Ductwork for the take out and the opportunity to lead these men today!

If Stone Cold still posted at Boot Camp workouts, he’d be disappointed at the lack of respect that his Grandmother is getting.

Great Q, Purell… and thanks for not staying on The Hill Behind the End Zone (aka Grandma) for the entire 45 minutes.
Solid work by the entire PAX, even with missing gloves, poor SSH form, slight refusnik-ing, and a wee bit of mumblechatter to boot. Good times!

And I bet they have completely forgotten about the Blue Door.

    I tried to incorporate the blue door when I Q’d a couple of months ago. There’s a new retaining wall on that hill that makes it harder and less fun to get to. We still did it though.
