9 Pax joined came out to Ignition and got used to carrying some rocks around campus.
Grab a “running” rock from pile. Chatter starting already that pax afraid it will be like crossing the Delaware River as we heard Deadwood’s Q included Saturday. But low and behold everyone stayed dry.
With rock in hand continue to mosey down concrete pathway towards HS parking lot. Along the way alternate with rock in right, left, and both hands doing shoulder press.
Once in parking lot put rocks down and line up along line. Do multiple running warmups back and forth. Unfortunately, just did not feel right to do A or B skips without Brat in attendance, so those were saved for another day.

With the temperatures supposed to reach a high of 37* in Western Union County, a group of 10 strong showed up for the first iteration of Flash expecting to be kept warm. The goal was to just keep the heart rate up and keep moving.
The Thang: like I said, just keep moving
We finished just north of 3.1 miles and never stopped moving while keeping the 6 close by. Old MacDonald looked like young MacDonald and Jingles is a sandbagging son of a biscuit. Someone say biscuit? Well done Boberry way to get back out there and press on.
For the other guys who didn’t get mentioned specifically great job. Way to fight off the fartsack. I appreciated the opportunity to lead you fine gentlemen and look forward to future workouts.
So the 2019 challenge has been more challenging then many can imagine, due to YHC having to be at corporate have not had much time to dedicate to tracking, reviewing scale pics (many need some pedicures), and sending out update. But have decided to schedule a “conference call” to get out first round of updates.
Note: Current scoring excludes unofficial weight loss #’s will try to get a good update from all next week to include.
|Deadwood / Tupperware||12|
|Rudy / Recalc||10|
|Foundation / Rubbermaid||10|
|Zin / Dancing Bear||9|
|Banjo / Jingles||6|
|Wedding Singer /Knish||1|
Deadwood /Tupperware – it appears in week 1 they do what they know best and that is Q. Unfortunately points for Qing are capped, so Deadwood will not be able to Q himself to victory here. But he has taught the young jedi how to gain points by Qing at Chiseled last week and have started off with a solid 12 point posting performance. Also – Kudos for bringing along a FNG
Rudy/ Recalc – appears that Recalc is going to lean on the Golden Domer to bring home a victory in this competition. Rudy not only timed up his VQ correctly, he was consistent in posting even if it meant coming in at Jingles time to make Chiseled. Recalc went MIA for a bit during week and was off normal posting schedule but was able to still break out the Karate Kid headband for a 4 pt performance. We will see if Coach Hurley will inspire a better performance in upcoming weeks
Foundation /Rubbermaid – Unfortunately Help Desk was hit with injury bug, but thankfully Rubbermaid has stepped in. Get better soon Help Desk and look to see you back out there soon. YHC has tried to come out gate strong and maybe counteract the late night cookies by attending extra workouts and ensuring a Q mixed in. Excited for opportunity to work with the Lieutenant and finish in the money
Zin having to carry the weight by attending workouts, but Dancing Bear doing best to send others to workouts while catching a few extra Zzzz’s in the morning. Dancing Bear – way to work the loop hole and still collect points from comfort of bedroom.
Banjo / Jingles – have split duties with Banjo attending workouts and Jingles on the mend for few he has resorted to starvation to collecting points. Jingles has unintentionally assisted YHC with losing appetite by sending scale pic with those gnarly talons in focus
Wedding Singer / Knish – started in hole this week and Knish/Commish has been MIA, but we expect to see a resurrection in the coming weeks and rumor has it that Wedding Singer has resorted to only baby formula until competition is over to further slim down.
Overall – good week it appears with many ensuring to attend workouts and push beyond comfort zone. Look forward to seeing results in upcoming weeks.
Example of Payout below:
|Team||Pts Earned||% of Top 5||Payout|
Feels good to be back on normal schedule (including Jingles with the 5:32 am arrival) and looking forward to seeing where 2019 brings the WUC pax. 17 pax (even though YHC wanted it to be 15 as I tried to exclude Zin/Banjo from the Name-O-Rama) came out to a gear/station workout today at Chiseled.

So I waited over a year to do my first Q, but why not do another just two weeks later? With the weather getting colder I assumed the numbers would be down a bit. I guess the previous days and days of rain made gave some the “cabin fever” and we had 23 strong in attendance.
Mosey to the front of the school, Big 10’s (SSH), Jimmy Dugan’s (just some stretches while avoiding the clap), merkins, and Imperial Walkers
Partner up and head to the back of the school. One partner runs to Transporter’s shed while the other starts hitting lights with merkins and squats. Partner one return and swap until we reach the shed together. At the shed we did some donkey kicks and Mike Tysons. From there we headed over by the football stadium for more partner work. 100 supines (is that a word?), 200 jump squats,
300 200 merkins as a team split up by partners running to the cirlce. From there we ran some more, stopped for Speed Skaters, Sit-ups, Air presses, Jabs and then Step ups.
I’ll be honest with you, I’d like to believe that there should be some humor in these but I’m going on vacation and I wanted to make sure it got out. My first Q didn’t have much complaining, but we made up for it this time. I think I had a bit too lofty of expectations for the number of reps that were appropriate along the way. Might of been too much running too, as Deadwood said he like the amount of running we were doing. I appreciate the work these men put in and thank you all for the opportunity to lead the pack. Great to see Mad Dog back out there, thanks to him for taking us out
