I changed up my Q style a bit today mainly because I had on a 20lb vest and wasn’t sure if mileage would kill me or not. I should have stuck to my guns and put in more mileage and less reps on the exercises!!
Arrived at 5:14, threw out a short DiCCS (Insert joke) and we were off. Lets mosey!
0.97 opeing mosey and circle for 6 which would soon be me!

Circle burp – Increase merkin x 1 after each burpee
Circle of pain – Each pax calls out exercise while they run around the circle
Jail break back for COT
I’m not going to lie, I felt like I was running with Shake and Bake 7 months ago and almost puked a few times. Running with a vest on is way easier than doing 25 merkins and 50 burpees! I will be taking Zinfandel’s and Damascus’s recommendations and will be dropping to 10lbs for a few weeks.
The pax killed it today! Damascus is a gazelle again and was up front all morning with Kid Rock, Smokey and Swimmers – way to push guys! Dana was moving along well but not his normal speed. I think the Easter ham slowed him down a bit! Loafer and Shop Dawg pushed hard and kept me company at the rear. Shop Dawg spilled a bit of Merlot on the last round, I was very close!! Well done today men!! Mileage was low today – 2.45 – 3.0
Thanks Shop for taking us out.
The Murph challenge continues – Loafer and Transporter are looking for partners…maybe they just partner up?
Help Damascus figure out a way to raise attendance at Asylum
Commitment started out like any other Saturday morning but there must have been something in the air. One Pax was injured during a mosey, one pax left early, two pax got missing…apparently searching for keys, 4 pax Q jacked during an IR.
Di Cell Cpr Safety

Mosey back for COT. Done.
Fuse must have had a late night watching NC State baseball because he was tardy. I didn’t want him to be MIA all morning so my first audible was a U-turn to scoop him up.
I noticed a few pax running in super late then I hear Zinfandel tweaked his back on the opening mosey and Posse lost his keys, did this happen? Big thanks to Rubbermaid for bolting to Zins grocery getter and picking the crippled pax up.
After the clubhouse 7’s I called for an IR back to the school. I should have made two lines based on speed. Wolverine, Dasher, Centerfold, and Gerber rolled out in their own form of an Indian Run but did circle back.
The workout was hard, no one likes pull-ups except maybe Wolverine, but everyone at least looked like they were attempting them. Nice job by all.
If you plan to partake in the Murph on May 27th you might want to jump into the challenge Zinfandel put together. Its starts Monday 4/15 and its no joke.
Tomorrow Fuse will be baptized at Weddington UMC @ 9:30
Poker night at big lots. Leave now!!!
Rubbermaid thinks there is a Convergance next Saturday but doesnt have any details. He will be out of town. Damascus may have details
Thanks Mad Dog for taking us out.
8 pax joined me for what would be a very redundant, yet effective Q. My goal today was to clock miles and not leave anyone behind and thats what we did, thats all we did!
Lets mosey! Intended on my normal .92 mile warmup route..AUDIBLE! Stop at Target circle up.
20 Merkins IC
Calf Stretch – Flap Jack
Mosey back to my truck for slam balls, thanks Bottle Cap!
BISR (Burpee Indian Slamball Run) .6 miles to a stop sign.
There were 10 houses and two sides roads along the .5 stretch.
Run to the first house and knockout 5 merkins, run back to stop sign.
Run to the second house and knockout 5 merkins, run back to stop sign. Each time you cross an intersection do 1 burpee.
As I was explaining things we see a shawdow moving at a high rate jogginh towards us..TRANSPORTER! Thanks for joining us!
I hit house #9 and time was running short, we still still had over half a mile to run back. We all met up at the stop sign and started the BISR back to the AO.
The goal was to get through all ten houses and we got close! Transporter was able to hit them all, go figure!
Pulling up at the AO at 5:13 seeing the pax that were about to embark on my Weinke I was a little worried, I wont lie. All age ranges and speeds but one thing was constant…they all came to work hard and work hard they did!! Well done guys we set a new site mileage record knocking out Ice 9 and Money Ball.
Shop Dog, Damascus, Zinfandel, Dana, Transporter, Swimmers, Akbar and Smokey are all animals and bring 110% each time they post and for that I thank you!!
Thanks Shop for taking us out
Bible Study every Monday night 7:30
New book starting at Five Stones 3 Sundays from now… 3/31? @7AM
3 brave men joined me this morning for a wet ignition post. The plan was to clock miles and still get in a few exercises and we did that. Props to Zinfandel and Wolverine (2nd post in a row) for coming out in the rain to chase Hollywood around.
As we departed the school we saw Centerfold rolling in..late but with the weinke strapped on tight there was no turning back.
Mosey to Lawson clubhouse – square up
10 Plank Jacks
Mosey to playgroud – Pullups/merkins
I intended on partner pull-ups but when I got the “Really Deadwood” look from Hollywood and Wolverine I told them to just knock them out. Zin and I partnered but I’m not sure we even needed to. I didn’t really assist him and I’m not sure how much he helped me…
5 pullups, flapjack – 5 merkins – 4 pull-ups, flapjack – 5 merkins – 3 Pull-ups…you get it. Hit the trail behind the playground.
Stop at PEARMAIN/OXFORD – 2 burpees

Suicide from transporter shed – 5, 10, 15, 20 jumps squats each light pole down and back.
Wolverine, you are a BEAST! Hollywood had a big lead and I think Wolverine was feeling sorry for myself and Zin so he was hanging back until he had enough. He turned it on and caught right up with Hollywood with no problem. Zin, my man, nice work today! I keep hearing you say your not a runner…not buying it. Hollywood you killed it as usual and I think next time I Q I will ride a bike so I can give you a better workout.
Thanks for letting me lead guys, I enjoyed it. 5.4miles
For some reason when Pax hear “Deadwood is on Q” their hair stands up on the back of theie neck as if they have heard nails on a chalk board…some Pax. I think its mainly because you really never know what your going to get. The only thing that is a constant is the running. Not today…
1 mile slow mosey. Down the gravel trail, past the club house back around to the school parking lot.
I’m not sure when Bottlecapp arrived, I think he came in Jingles hot, but I could hear him talking as we were a little ways down the gravel trail. I kept the pace as slow as humanly possible, without walking, with hopes of suppressing the anger of the pax due to the long warmup run. Then I hear from the Coke man himself, This IS NOT pursuit! Nope, according to Garmin, we only hit about 3.3 miles.
10 SSH IC
10 Crab Cakes
5 Regular Merkins,
5 Wide Merkins,
5 Wider Merkins,
5 Diamond Merknis,
6″ plank hold
Single leg toe plank, raise knee 2″ and hold – flapjack – Banjo was volunteered to show us all proper form on this move and what 2″ really looks like.
Black Jack that quickly turned into 11’s.
Did someone say AUDIBLE!
10 Pullups – 1 Merkin 9-2, 8-3, ect. –
Partner up. P1 assists P2 with pull-ups – flapjack. Once complete both partners do merkins. The goal here was for all pax to get all the pull-up reps. The partner holding the feet probably got a pretty good bicep work out as well.
To look at those arms on Bottlecap, you would never think the guy could many pull-ups but he killed them!! I had to help some but not much, nice work! We know who actually did the pull-up challenge! I didnt see how the other pax did but from what I could hear they need, myself included, to do more pull-ups. Exercise completed, lets Mosey
Mosey to circle near the baseball fields:
Failure to Launch:
All pax hold Lt. Dan and on jump we all jump and go right back into Lt. Dan. We did this until we couldn’t launch. Lets Mosey! Pretty hard getting the legs moving after failure to launch but I picked up the pace a bit on this mosey.
We took off down the gravel road towards the clubhouse once again. Banjo and myself arrived and married for a few mins…6 is in.
7’s – Splinter Master and LBC
Zinfandel had this awesome idea of adding a bomb jack to the end of the mater splinter… we call it the splinter master. A burpee with a hand release merkin, with shoulder taps, then up for a bomb jack…thats 1.
Start at one side of the parking lot, 1 LBC, bear crawl to the other curb (maybe 40-50′) 6 Splinter Masters, run back. 2 LBC, BC, 5 SM’s….
This was a complete smoker!! I’m pretty sure I didn’t complete all the SM’s. Bottlecap and Tupperware were the top finishers. The jury is still out if Tupperware was doing the entire SM. Zin pulled ahead of me and we were killing it but I think Tupperware lapped us… you tell me??
We all finished and I felt half dead. Lets mosey! We headed towards the covered bridge and stopped at the intersection. Lets get in some running!
Headed back to the school there were to side roads along the way and then an intersection that we will call road 3.
Run to 1 road do 1 merkin, run back to intersection do 1 merkin. Run to road 2 do 2 merkins, run back to intersection do 2 merkins, AUDIBLE AUDIBLE… The plan was to run to road 3 do 3 merkins and run back to the starting point.
We were running out time and some of the pax were falling behind on the run, plus I had a few more items on the weinke I had to get to! Hold at road 3 for 6. Marry for a min. 6 is in, let’s mosey! Head back to circle near the baseball field and circle up!
YHC yells 1, all pax do a burpee with one merkin. Next pax yells 2, all pax do a burpee with 2 merkins… This continue all the way around to the 15th person. Total 15 burpees and 120 pushups. Im hurting today! Time for one more!
Circle of Pain:
Still circled up, each pax calls out an exercise while they run around the circle. 45 secs to go we recovered and AYG back for name o roma. DONE!
I would like to welcome Deliverance to the group! You did very well for your first work out and I hope to see you back out!
On the opening mosey YHC decided to take us off road in hopes of cutting down the run by a few feet as we approached the school. I was just looking out for all the pax, I swear! It slipped my mind that it had been raining a day or two before. There were only a few pax that actually followed the “light” down the hill and the other, wiser, pax stayed on the road and ran around. As I crossed the 1′ ditch I yelled “water” but it was too late. I think Recalculating was the first pax to hit the water about 15′ before he even got to the ditch. DAMN IT DEADWOOD followed by a few other words from him and about 4-5 other pax. Chainsaw lit into me… DAMN IT PHILLIP! You know he’s mad when he calls me by my birth name at a post! LMAO. May I add it was about 26-27 degrees as well!! Coffee is on me!
All the pax killed it today and left everything in the gloom. Its an honor to lead all you men! Until next time….
Casino night at B and C – The Don of Briarcrest didn’t show.
Stayed tuned for more Q Source info…
…and I know what im doing now!!
We had a diverse (Respects, injured, sick, slow, medium, fast) crowd of 12 devoted and hard-working soldiers that joined me for a wet and rainy post.
It turned out to be a decent morning, the rain was super light and the pax pushed harder than I expected considering the weinke that I had prepared.
I think a few pax thought I was bluffing when I said we would be in the rain for we all parked and met at the front of the school under the covered area. 5:29 – Disclaimer given. 5:29.50″ a car comes creeping in slowly and we all kow its not Jingles. 5:30 the car is still deciding on a parking spot, we mosey.
First audible of the day called as I forgot my gloves and circled back. This gave the two tardy pax a chance to catch up.
Slow Mosey to stadium – A few pax were trailing pretty far and BC circled back for them, thanks BC.
15 SSH IC
15 Merkin – (Eye Contact) – Used an idea from another Pax (rymes with bunny crawl) thinking this would get the pax to push themselves on the merkins and get them to use good form. No police present today so this was the next best thing without verbally calling them out. No one likes to be called out publicly especially if the caller has bad form.
The EC Merkins started out ok but two merkins in a lot of heads dropped. After seeing my shirtless selfie I think the pax felt awkward staring down their opposing neighbor. Maybe next time guys.
15 IW IC
15 Planks Jack IC
20 shoulder taps OYO
Traffic circle – 7’s
1merkin – 6 Master Splinter 2-5, ect
The Master Splinter (compliments of MB) was a hit but I forgot to add the hand release in my demo, next time we will channel our ZIN and complete them as the creator intended.
Shout out to all on this exercise, it was not easy and running back up the incline was no fun. Bottle Cap led the charge, nice work.
5 Burpees OYO Once the 7’s were completed
Indian Run to top at Cuthberbon Rd – 2 lines
Lets face it, no one likes an IR.
Triple Nickel (5x’s) – (This was my least favorite of the day)
10 Jump Squats at Top
10 Merkins at bottom
Indian Run back to AO – Burpee @ Back
What worse than an IR? An IR with a burpee!! (got this from Foundation)
This would be the second audible of the day. 2 minutes prior I told MB we were heading back towards the stadium to the start. He took off ahead or us. BC made a great observation when he mentioned the distance (I forgot we parked at the covered area and not the regular spot) and time… Audible!!
We ran around the front of the school and MB was own his own, sorry MB. I knew you wouldn’t complain and could handle yourself at the scary Middle School in the rain! We all arrived at the same time, worked out great! Thanks BC, good call.
Shout out to all the Repects that posted today (5 men), the injured Moneyball and the sick Zin. For the rest of you no posters….I have nothing.
Today’s push by the respects, led by Recalc was incredible! MB, with his hurt leg, managed to be in the top three all morning. The TN slowed him a bit, but showing up hurt, in the rain and still competing is huge!
Zin and Dana took it to a new level today. First, let me say Zin posted in the rain halfway sick and they both crushed the TN. Realizing they both stopped before completing the last leg of the nickel, Dana said, “DW do we have time for one more?” Fly little bird, and they were off. Zin wasnt pleased…HAHA
Banjo welcome back! I guess the journey from the Briars and Crest has been more than you can manage lately. Either way, he was all over me on the TN, nice work man!
To the rest of the unnamed Pax, way to kill it, really, thank you for not complaining when I took you in the rain or when we ran our asses off. Glad to call you my friends and brothers. Until next time… DW out!
Lou had great things to say about the group and is very appreciative. Thank’s Lou, we appreciate you as well.
3rd F opportunity at Five Stones Sunday mornings @ 7:00 AM
Share all F3 social media when possible. Our goal is to continue to grow the group and change lives.
5 pax joined me for my recovery Q as the rest were afraid they would melt, out of town, on IR or couldn’t handle the new and improved DW weinke! Either of which was smart considering this was more of an ignition style workout and not for the faint of heart.
After my massive amount of audibles last week I assured the site Q’s of The Floater #87 that I would continue the streak of tough workouts that the site is known for, mission accomplished…I think. I was ready!

Today there was no 6. No one was last. The entire group kept moving the entire time with zero mumble chatter, form policing or complaining. Oh, and zero rain!
Dana took the lead on circling back early on the 4 corners, even though he was on my heels, to make sure others were not running alone. You’ve come along way man, keep up the good work and keep pushing. Don’t let others discourage you, you got this!
Recalculating as always went hard and killed it, the only Respect of the group. As we approached DC for the warmup a smell worse than Dana’s gloves combined with hot garbage filled the air…I almost gagged. This must have sparked something because it wasn’t teeyynn minutes later Recalc was off to transporters shed.
Doughboy pushed hard as his self and Dana stayed close on the suicides. Good work, if your keeping with Dana on those long runs then your both ready for ignition or pursuit. We all missed BB, maybe next time.
Legalized… Ok I did form police him one time but not like you think. He and I did marry for about 30 secs one time and it happened to be HTH. I told him that if he lifted his back off the ground as his feet were up he would feel it more. I only said this because I know he wants to see changes in his self and gives it 110% each time he posts. Good work sir!
Last but not least Wedding Singer. For someone to show up at 5:30 and do what we did today and have a brand new baby at home I take my hat off to you. I would have fartsacked and caught up on much needed sleep. You pushed hard like you do each time you post.
I was thoroughly impressed by the effort today and that you showed up! Thanks for letting me lead you guys!! I audible was called but only changed the order of my weinke so insure pax safety. Otherwise went smooth.
