This little light of mine…

YHC rolled up to The Goat this AM and stumbled upon 7 shady-looking dudes loitering in the parking lot under the dim glow of a streetlamp overhead.  Turns out they were there for a run, so we ran. Warm Up Nope. The Thang YHC planned a course through the heart of campus, down MLK Jr. […]

Jump Rabbit, Jump!

I took the family back to Cincinnati, where I was born and raised, for Labor Day weekend.  Let’s just say that while it certainly was a labor of love to carry, hoist, and cart  2 toddlers on trains, planes, and automobiles all weekend, my stomach was the one working overtime.  Going home for me means […]

Do we have a triceps deficiency?

One PAX (YHC) met to know the darkness for 0430 pull-ups. It was dark. And lonely. And made YHC realize that 0430 pull-ups is probably not a good idea. YHC was glad to be joined by Skynyrd for 0500 ruck. Stinky Pete led solo Spartan EC at 0515. Yes, EC is early, but you’re already […]

Tour de Woodcroft

Doesn’t count for the Master Q unless a BB is written.  Doesn’t matter if you’re the only one at the AO.  One of these days maybe I’ll Q a workout at the Afterburn and have someone be there for it.   Warm-Up: YHC coached cross country practice prior to the Burn.  Was properly warm upon […]

YHC dreamed up today’s workout as part of the Secret Q month, based around the general theme of Mountain Climbing, then missed his Secret Q on a family trip. So today, I dusted off the plan and 26 PAX put it in action. In expedition mountain climbing, they say you climb most of the mountain […]

Easy as 1,2,3,4

3 EC ruckers roamed around the Southern Village darkness, bringing surprise and confusion to all those they came across in the 0500-hour.  The only other living thing that was brave enough to engage the 3 darkened ruck-wearing fools was a cat (‘Turtle’) who briefly followed us…but quickly realized we carried no cat treats. Thus, the […]

Welcome to the Bearmuda Triangle

It was gloomy. It was muggy. But the Thunder Gods were merciful and held off, and so, despite all of these things, it was a glorious morning as 11 PAX including 1 FNG rolled in to the parking deck in Hillsboro for a Floyd beatdown. It was YHC’s first visit to the D&W, a much […]

“Next time I’m going to the Falcon”

Posted on

Sometimes a workout will catch you by surprise. It looks relatively modest on paper and even in a BB but when put into action it is simply soul crushing. Today was one of those workouts. Whether it’s the synergies of the chosen exercises, the culmination exhaustion after a summer of pushing one another to the […]
