14 men came out to share in some misery as YHC made his second Q appearance at Watchtower. It was raining lighting as the PAX arrived and I quickly informed them that I planned to make no efforts to keep people dry. I made good on that promise as it start pouring about 25 minutes into the workout….but I don’t want to get ahead of myself so let’s take it from the top.
I learned a few things this morning…
But seriously, it was a great effort by everyone out there. I was pretty impressed when the Gazelles voluntarily added a burpee to their indian run.
braved the cold… fought through the rain … enjoyed a mild 52 degree morning out at chiseled. Hence the title….Where My Pax At?? (I know the answer, Dromedary getting their WAMRAP on. As for the 5 of us…we were in for some good old fashioned station work.
Mosey over to the brick pile, grab a pair of bricks, 1 lap around mount chiseled and back to start. Circle up.
With bricks in hand:
After a quick mosey around the median, it was time for some station work. Since there was only 5 of us, we broke into two groups (of 2 and 3).
5 minutes at each station w/ 30 seconds to recover between each station….and go!
After the station work we still had a minute to kill, so a final mosey to the end of the lot and back brought us to time.
Lots of grunts and groans heard from the group today, so I’ll take that as a success. Everyone seemed to really be pushing hard. I appreciate Damascus using his last couple reps of tire flips to keep moving the tire closer to it’s home. For anyone keeping track – Shake and Bake did show up for his pre-run, but I don’t think anyone had the courage to join him (YHC included).
VQ – where big ideas become lessons learned very, very quickly.
20 PAX fought the cold to come out to my highly anticipate VQ. I’d been prepping for weeks….months even(no..not really months). This work out had to be EPIC(Spoiler Alert: It wouldn’t be). 4-corners? Nah, too basic….a little triple nickel? Played out….burpee suicides??? Ok, let’s reel it back just a bit.
But finally the prep work was done, the wienki (spellcheck???) was ready to go and all that was left was to see how this all played out.
What an awesome experience leading this group. The sense of accomplishment set in right away as I started hearing the complaining during those bear crawls. Really appreciate all the support from everyone that came out this morning.
The pax continue to impress, with everyone seeming to get faster each time we’re out there. Ruby (Rocket Ismail) really turned on those afterburners for the sprints. It might be time for the pax formerly known as Dana to turn in his Clydesdale card for good. Dancing Bear was back in action after and as spry as ever. Krusty is still trying to hold onto that self proclaimed name change…stay krusty my friend.
A solid showing from the MillBridge contingent (the real #1 ‘hood) – Jingles, Goodfella, Legalized – Great seeing you all out crushing it this morning!
