Another week, another Clyent Dinner
Because of the “April 1 Q Challenge” I thought Boitano was on Q
However, Boitano was
Which quickly became apparent at 5:29pm.
So with less than a minute to go it also became apparent that a lot of guys had already been on Q this month and were like:
So we looked at 8 year old Speed Bump and said:
and his reaction:
And off we went!
Mosey around parking lot to front of middle school
Run to the tables behind the middle school
Run along back of school to the path
Grab a rock
Mosey to COT for Heals to Heaven / Flutter Web
Run to next corner of lot
Run to next corner of lot
Run to next corner of lot
Run to next corner where we started
Run to front of Middle school
Run Back to COT
We got sprinkled on a few times during the workout. Elsa must not have signed on for rain because “It’s Raining” was heard many times with this exact expression:
Pretty funny and cute
Orkin, The Beans, and Rock were playing with a frog right before we started. We we get to the front of the middle school and somehow the frog made it with us. Clyent Dinner is not frog friendly so he had to go in the bushes
Hats of to Speed Bump for Qing a workout on the fly to save Clyent Dinner from being the workout that brought down the 1 Q April Ship. Streak still in tack.
Great to see SCUBA back out. I know you’ve had some calf issues (seen today at Homecoming) but now that your shoulder is feeling better everyone else better watch out.
I think everyone’s triceps are still hurting after the 120 dips to start
Well done everyone
Perfect 50 degree morning, some heavy hitting regional VQs, how were the numbers going to be this morning?
Pax answered the bell this morning which included a site first timer, a kotters, and an FNG
Nature called during my pre-run so a quick drive over to the gas station with 5 minutes to start
Thanks Dasher for the DiCCS while I was away.
Arrived back 30 seconds before 5:30am
Opening walk to PetSmart
Great group this morning. I think 7 – 15ish pax is the perfect number for Cowbell .
I think I heard the comment in the first part of the workout that my weinke came from Suzanne Sommers. Hopefully it got better after that.
Great to see Das Boot make the driver over to Wesley Chapel. Apparently he gassed up the night before, packed a cooler full of drinks and snacks, got a triptik from AAA, and left the house at 4am. Hopefully you make it home safe by lunch time.
Welcome back to Shriver. A Lawson guy (now?) that started posting about 6 or so years ago but has been out for about 11 months or so, look forward to seeing you more often.
Transporter came back from vacation and was crashing from a carb deficit. Strong work today. Also brought out an FNG relative from Dallas, Texas, “Pick N Pull”. Hopefully you can get connected back in Dallas when you return.
Zinfandel, Mad Dog, Bottlecap, and Dasher have become Cowbell regulars and it’s starting to show, great work!
Another Thursday, another pending storm,
but no rain tonight.
10 pax and 2.0s made the initial start.
5:30, let’s mosey!
Since it’s light out, decided to take the off road option and do a warm up mile on the CMS Spirit Trail
Mosey back to the path that leads to Rudy’s Shed
Mosey to the rock pile behind Rudy’s shed, grab a lifting rock
Starting to rain a little more consistently, thunder and lighting, mosey to covered breezeway on side of high school
Really raining now
Horizontal rain now
Still horizontal rain
Since it was raining hard we did counting, name o rama, and COT at breezeway
Then jailbreak back to car for picture, rain started to turn to drizzle at this point
Great Job Everyone!
Welcome 2.0 Mona Lisa (Drive By) and site FNGs Magi and Open House. Glad to have you dine with us this evening.
The spirit trail was a little muddier than anticipated, sorry.
The weather tonight went from a few drops at start to light rain to all of a sudden thunder, lightning, and horizontal rain. Probably the hardest it has ever rained during a workout that I can remember. Pretty crazy stuff but I think the 2.0s still had fun.
Thanks for the opportunity to lead
What an interesting night.
The weather outside is frightful, but the…. wait that’s a different season.
Still, The weather looked great, then not so great. 4:45pm rolled around and the tornado watches and warnings were in full effect.
So, with the safety of the pax and especially 2.0s in mind, it was an easy call to cancel, which we did.
The storm quickly blew by and completely missed us by 5:05pm so,
Clyent Dinner was back on!
Which was good because Speedbump was on Q and he had been working on his wienke for a few days. I’ll have to give this guy credit because he took it seriously and meticulously planned 100% of the workout himself with zero input from me.
He showed it to me last night and said he would just carry the paper around with him…. hold up… pump the brakes….
We then had a nice chat about how a Q needs to lead and can’t be messing around with papers and directions so he spent the evening and some time today memorizing the below:
Which was the workout. He did a great job leading 13 other pax and 2.0s around Cuthbertson tonight. No paper, no cheat sheets, just leading.
Drive By came and then left and then came back
High Hat rarely looks at GroupMe so he came with Rock and had no idea it had even been cancelled for 20 minutes
Boitano and Girltano missed the cancelation memo as well and showed
Rubbermaid checked his GroupMe scanner and came when he heard the all clear with Freestyle and Doppelgänger
C3PO and Johnny 5 would have come either way and rarely miss a Thursday night workout
Xerox saw the bat signal and came calling as well
Great job everyone!
We’ve all been there.
Q cancelation and you need to Q in a few hours. What do you do.
Grab something from the old:
What’s a Hot n Ready? It’s basically a standard go to time filler if your Q needs something else or something you like to throw in as a base for a workout. It’s always Hot n it’s always ready at a moments notice.
We’ve also all been suckered into a $5 pizza from Little Caesar’s, so let’s just stop pretending otherwise.
This time, C3PO couldn’t Q but then he could. However, Speed Bump was already excited about doing a starfish and had made the cones so we stayed on Q and I filled in the rest:
Mosey to grassy area next to Middle School for warm up stuff.
Four corners, four exercises, 10 of each:
Mosey to side of HS breezeway stair area.
Mosey to wooden benches
Mosey back to side of middle school
Mosey down to Rudy’s Shed
GREAT JOB EVERYONE! As always, love to see the Dads and 2.0s out working hard.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
Another Wednesday for Waxhaw’s premier kettlebell and running workout
There were kettlebell swings, there was running
There were thrusters, there was running
There were squats, there was running
That’s basically it. Just lots of swings, thrusters, and squats with progression runs to the end of the lot and back but moving your kettlebell up a line each time. Most progressions started at 25 and worked down to 5 reps by the fifth line.
Great work everyone
9 Pax showed up for some speed work!
Moasie for about a mile, stretch
5 Laps of the following
100m 10K pace
100m 5K pace

Great job everyone pushing themselves once again,
Shoutout once again to Popeye for coming out to Express once again! Your killing it keep up the great work.
Hurry needs to learn life is not just a hurry, P.S here is the definition of a mosaie “run at a steady gentle pace, especially on a regular basis as a form of physical exercise.” please study it!
Welcome Polly to Express !
Great job to all the other Pax
Rooster coming up on March 13
I had a plan for today. Something that I’ve been thinking about for a while. With sunny weather and good temps this weekend and only 30% chance of rain this morning today looked like a great morning to give it a go. I even had Rubbermaid scout out part of it yesterday and gave the all clear. He even gave a HC.
So I wasn’t expecting to wake up to this today:
Decision on today’s original plan:
Apparently HC Rubbermaid and Ignition regulars Easy Button, Dasher, and Hurry this morning:
Me on the drive to Cuthbertson now:
The Rain when we started would have made even Wolf proud:
DiCCS to the 5 pax that showed up:
Slow mosey to the front of the HS to warm up:
Mosey to Rudy’s shed for the First Thang:
It’s at that point we realized Sugar Daddy’s back was acting up:
Mosey to the
awning on the side of the HS, looks like MASH is there, front of the HS
It was at this point the unmistakable sound of dry heaving and puking was heard. Was it Ice 9?
Noooooo, this heaving and puking had a different pitch, different finishing “umph”, not the Ice 9 heave we have come to know and love. This was Deadwood.
Front of the HS for:
Final long mile mosey to finish:
Done! 4 – 5+ miles in the books
Q School March 6 at Cuthbertson Middle School:
There is really no reason you shouldn’t be there. If you are reading this, get to Q school
Rooster is March 13th in Rock Hill. All you have to do is run 1 mile six times but with a 25-30 minute break between each loop. Lots of fun, don’t miss it, YOU WILL LOVE IT!
