Where are your shoes?

Where are your shoes?

I had a calendar notification that popped up saying YHC was scheduled to Q at Kevlar.  Thinking, “this can’t be right”, I pulled up the nifty F3SouthCharlotte app and sure enough there I am.  Followed by messages from Horsehead and Pop Tart (and none by Site Q Orange Whip), I figured there was no backing out of Qing at an AO I probably haven’t stepped foot on in close to 2 years.  With a little preview from the Google Maps, I came up with a basic plan and took it from there.  Here’s what we did:

Warmup lap: left out of the parking lot, right onto the long driveway and went around the entire parking lot of the school (or church?) almost back to where we started from to the larger square parking lot.

  • SSH x 20
  • MC x 20
  • IW x 20
  • Slow Rising Merkin x 10
  • Low Slow Squat x 20
  • Slow Freddie Mercury x 20

More running and head towards the soccer field/pitch

  • Efficient 11’s full length of field
    • 10 merkins & 1 LBC on one end
    • 9 merkins & 2 LBC on the other end
    • Keep going like regular 11’s
  • Traditional 11’s from side to side of field
    • Derkins on bleachers & Squats

Start running again back the way we started

  • Hold up for the six and do 10 more Slow Rising Merkins

Keep running until finding a decent sized wall

  • People’s Chair w/ heels off the ground and arms out for 45 sec
  • Balls to the wall
  • People’s Chair w/ toes off the ground and arms out for 30 sec

AYG back to the launch


  • Dolly x 20
  • Heels to Heaven x 20



Again, I don’t have much experience at this AO, but if there is room to run, a field, and a wall, you can figure something out.   Great group of guys out there today.  Great to see Red Riding Hood back out there as this was only his 2nd time out.  Keep coming back.

Must give a shout out to Wham-O for somehow not knowing he didn’t have shoes until he got to the workout.   How does that happen?  The only thing he had are his Ultimate Frisbee cleats in the car, so he did the entire workout (all 2.8 miles) in cleats.  Very nice!

Again, excellent effort out there all around today.  Thanks for having me at the AO. Maybe I’ll drop back by in 2019 or early 2020.

Until then,
