Christmas Pageant

Posted on

7 PAX braved the cold weather for the Fingers Christmas Pageant. The air was crisp and the classic Christmas music blared in the background as the PAX took center stage. We started with 20 Side Shuffle Hops, followed by 10 Imperial Walkers. 10 forward and 10 reverse arm circles came next. Then it got real. […]

A caprine run

Posted on

Last week was my first time at The Goat. It was a brisk morning on the well lit Hooker Field, and the Q (Subprime) had a great mix of pacing, core work, and fun. I loved it! As I drove up this morning, I was encouraged to see the lights on, as I understand this […]

The Suicide Circuit

Posted on

Avalanche and Justice answered the bell, errr clicked on the bell, and joined YHC for some EC in the early gloom. We did a three exercise circuit, rotating through farmer carries, swings, and goblet squats. We made it through the circuit 6 times, but shamelessly took a recovery run between circuits 4 and 5. YHC […]

Keep it 100

Posted on

Temp said 34 degrees, Realfeel was 29. YHC felt about 70-75% with this head-cold and post-Thanksgiving delirium. The temperature and YHC’s state of mind – lets get real, keep it 100. Upon YHC’s first visit to The Rock, YHC was very disappointed that Sean Connery was not there to greet me “Welcome to the rock.” […]

Tater Tot’s Merkin Squat Turkey Burpee Trot

Posted on

Six PAX decided to take a good long look at their Thanksgiving Dinner plans and said “I’m probably gonna need more,” so they posted at Hurricanrana on the day before Thanksgiving to prepare. Two PAX for EC Ruck through Croasdaile. YHC was both excited to get back after it after fartsacking Monday and Tuesday while […]

Man, I didn’t think this one through….

Posted on

YHC woke up this morning, looked at his phone and saw a temperature of 26.  I said to myself, man you didn’t think this through all that well on picking this date to do your VQ.  I  had to keep my Thanksgiving celebrating in check so I could make it through the workout.  Horney Toad, […]

Glowing Bags of Bastille

Posted on

14 PAX arrived (mostly on time) on a beautiful, crisp clear chilly morning at the park at Southern Village for Chapel Hill’s Premier Friday workout, Bastille. YHC had hear much about Bastille over the years and words had been exchanged in the past regarding its superiority over Durham’s Premier Friday Workout, The Falcon. I have […]
