Merlot

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!!

Warm up:

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!

Warm up:

10 SSH IC

10 IW IC

10 Merkins IC

Calf streatch – flap jack

10 Peter Parker IC

The Thang:

10 burpees a minute for 5 minutes

4 Corners around target- Increase reps x 5 each lap

1st lap:

10 WWII situps

10 Merkins

10 V toe touch

10 Peter Parkers

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

DONE !

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.

Announcements:

The Murph challenge continues – Loafer and Transporter are looking for partners…maybe they just partner up?

The Moleskine

Welcome

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.

Announcements:

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.

But I purchased sunflower seeds here once…

I arrived at #87 early to drop a few cones along N Providence St…little did I know one pax would drop the kids off at the pool and ruin a local store owners morning, not to mention his shi%*@&. My Q’s are pretty predictable, low reps/high run, but today I wanted to change it up. Informed that an FNG would be amongst us I decided to scale the running back while making the exercises a bit harder. With my track record, I knew the B & C presence would probably not exist. Banjo is on IR after being owned by a kid playing ultimate frisbee and Zin was on hiatus at a weak AO in ATL. Thank you, no modifiers today…but wait!

A large black truck rolled in and I knew it must be spring and hibernation was over, Dancing Bear in the house!! But will he smell pee during the merkins? Will he break the B and C stereotypes (it’s not a stereotype, its fact) and not modify? Can he give it 110%, not complain and get stronger? Hell yeah he can and he did!! Way to crush it DB!!

The Thang:

DICCS mentioned – Lets go!!

The Moleskine:

I have to say for an FNG Yeah Yeah killed it! He hung right in there with the running and I didn’t see him modify (I don’t police), nice work and welcome aboard!

Bottle Cap as usual crushed the work but Keith Jong Hill slowed the gazelle a bit. It did seem steeper today.

Easy Button and Moneyball talked about basketball or something as they moseyed behind me a while but pulled a $&@? And bolted by me in the last hill run…ummmhumm

It was good so see Deflated’s face although he was still bundled strong with it 53 outside! He’s an old soul and always cold. I’m sure when Foundation and himself car pull the heat is on blast! Do you have AC in your car..asking for a friend?

Foundation, hard worker as usual and a master fng namer!

Trogan is looking strong! The consistent posting, positive attitude and max effort is paying off. Well done!

As I am running up the KJH for the last time Damascus catches up with me and all I hear him saying is a weak raspy half dead voice is “I need carbs, I need carbs, I need carbs” haha.

Shake n Bake glad you could join us, strong showing as per norm. Get out here more and those burpees wont roast your Boston as bad! Nice work!

Last but not least lets discuss the incident that went down at Marathon Gas station on this fine morning and left one store owner wondering what he did to deserve such rancid smells in his establishment from a non-paying customer.

MB turned to me with a look of desperation, pain, and energy and said (very fast) where you going next?????? ha. I said we are grabbing wall on the way to KJH…Boom he was out! Like missing.

We are arriving at the wall and I see his running posture doesn’t look at painful as he is coming from the laundry mat. He then goes on to tell us that the store owner “shouldn’t go in there for 30-45 mins” and “someone needs to open a window”. The relived pax felt bad momentarily for not making a purchase after his deposit but then realized that he had previously purchased a (1) pack of sunflower seeds from the poor man months ago. I suppose a $1.89 pack of sunflower seeds give you the green light to do the work.

Well done men..no 6 today!!

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!

The Moleskine:

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!!

All the Pax pushed hard today with zero mumble chatter, I honestly don’t think I heard anyone talk. If you’re talking, you’re not working hard enough or the exercise isn’t challenging enough. I was pretty winded and didnt take a lot of notes but we all now know that Posse is very fast for about 10 seconds. Thanks Zin the gazelle for picking up the six a time or two. We crushed over 3.5 miles very happy to see everyone progressing physically, keep it up!

Thanks Ackbar for taking us out.

DiCCS mentioned

The Thang:

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 SSH

10 Merkins

10 Plank Jacks

10 IW

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.

Done!

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

Damn it Deadwood!!

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…

Warmup:

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.

Circle up!

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.

The Thang:

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!

Long Suicide:

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!

Circle Burp:

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!

The Moleskin:

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…

Surprise!!!

A fellow Pax decided he wanted to relive his college days and pull an all-nighter to see his man crush JT in concert. Zinfandel He sent me a text wondering if I would switch Q’s with him, I had the following week, of course, I will! With my new and improved weinke armband I started prepping. The entire goal of the co-op switch was to keep it under wraps from certain Briars and Crest Biglots residents who do not seem to show with yours truly is on Q, first surprise. I’m not sure if the cat got out of the bag or the entire neighborhood except Chicken Little (who killed it today) fartsacked do to the the beat down from young Tupperware the day before, the jury is still out. Let’s go!

The Thang:

14 Pax joined me for what be the launch of a few new exercises as well as some eye opening safety issues.

Disclaimer – Longer and more details than normal, this site is a bit dangerous. I mentioned sticking together crossing the street, paying special attention to cars, and always assume they are not going to stop, they fly! Needless to say the worst of the cars seemed to be on Bad Idea. Frankly after this morning, this site deemed more dangerous than Watchtower.

Lets Mosey:

We had two Fng’s (Trojan and Show Girl) and the traffic seemed to be at an all-time high so I took the mosey a little slower so we could stick together. We ran by Dream Chaser’s across the bridge to wait for six. We crossed the road and headed towards the basketball court, Recalculating’s eye would have lite up. I took a quick glance at Bad Idea on the way, I will see you in a few… Little did I know we would be dodging cars the entire time!

Warmup:

30 SSH IC

10 Crab Cakes IC- Get into the crab walk position and kick right leg out/up and left arm up at the same time, flap jack. Rubbermaid may have taken a spill on this one, the guy has no balance.

Merkins IC – 5 regular, 5 wide, 5 wider, 5 close, 6″ HOLD IT.

The fire hydrant – This burned bad. In a tabletop position, extend one leg straight back, raise the opposing knee about 3-4″ so that all the pressure is on the toes. Hold it. Flapjack

Failure to Launch- Hold Algore until I say jump, then right back into Algore. Rinse and repeat until jumping is impossible. BURN!!

BBall Court Suicide – 4x’s

Duck walk to half court, run back. Run to the other end and do two Merkin Wipes. A regular Merkin but while you’re down move your head and touch your nose to each hand.

11’s

1 Smurf Jack run to other side of court – 10 Alternating merkins (regular or wide or close) then 2/9, 3/8 etc

Bad Idea

Start at the intersection at the bottom, two Mexican jumping Bean at the top. These turned into jump squats.

One burpee at the bottom and increase by one burpee each time down.

Dana held strong with me, BC and Easy Button 2x’s up and down Bad Idea. Then he noticed a few lagging behind. He did a great job picking them up. We all arrived back at the AO at 5:16.26, not too bad.

Run hill 3x’s

Grab some wall for the six – This was my least favorite part of the morning.

Bottecap brushed off his exercise manual and pulled one out I haven’t done before. Head, shoulders, knees, and toes! Hated it, it burned…but it was great! Nice BC, we need more variation!

Six is in, time to head back, we had about 8-9 mins and were about 1/2 mile out. Will we make it back on time? On the run back, on my down do a burpee. We did about 4-5 of those and I checked the time…3.5 mins and we were still pretty far out. Straight mosey back.

I hear Doughboy on my heels (nice push), “Ummm Deadwood, we have like 2 mins.” Yes, I know sir. Run faster. Easy Button and myself arrived back near the bridge. The six was a good ways back, looked like a train coming!

We all crossed the street together and hustled across the next street… This is when the sandbaggers came out!! The main one I believe, was the only representative from B and C.

To all the sandbaggers that posted today and the ones that fartsacked, why not work harder during the entire workout? Going through the motions or modifying at will and then blowing everyone out in a sprint?? Getting up at 4:30 – 4;45 each morning should make you want to kill yourself when you post (not literally). #donewithsoapbox

We all arrived back at the AO at 5:16.26, not too bad. We hit just over 3 miles.

Done!

The Moleskine:

Welcome Trojan and Show Girl, we are glad to have you. From what I saw you both pushed hard today and never stopped, you may have been faster then some of our pax that post regularly.

I would go through and call you all out by name but no need, you all crushed it today. Zero complaints, not much chatter that I heard and everyone gave it 110% which is very refreshing to see.

After my last Q my goal was to introduce different exercises. I skimmed through all 27 pages of the Exicon and pulled a few pretty good ones. And as I type this, I am feeling the soreness set in!

With new exercises and crazy names comes a lot of demo’s. I felt like I had to “sale” each move to the pax. I chose exercises that were pretty easy to demo and explain.

We were completely safe from cars all morning then my weinke called for Bad Idea, for the new guys, Bad Idea is that long big A@# hill we ran up and down. We headed to the hill with about 20 mins to go. As usual, the pax were scattered along the route like ants and the cars just kept coming. Not too safe. In the future, it would be best to hit it first to minmize the risk of an accident.

The floater should require 100% usage of safety vests, lights are good but vest are much more effectrive. Today a few had them on and I could see them better than any of the guys coming at me with headlamps. Look for the Site Q’s to send out more info regarding this.

Announcements: Clyent Dinner @ 5:30 today – Cuthbertson Middle – Hollywood on Q.

The Gremlin race will be January 26th at UNCC. See slack or contact me.

The results are in…

…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.

The Thang:

Slow Mosey to stadium  – A few pax were trailing pretty far and BC circled back for them, thanks BC.

Circle up:

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.

DONE!

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!

Announcements:

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

The Silent 6

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!

DONE!

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.
