Fighting thru the gloom to focus on 2/20

Posted on

When Sweats put out the call yesterday that the Q Sheet had an opening, YHC jumped at the chance to lead the brave souls that came to #TheBigDance.  In thinking of a thematic approach to the Q Plan, the date 2/20 kept resonating.  YHC has been wanting to do a work out that was high […]

Giving Back to The Big Dance

Posted on

The Big Dance is not part of YHC’s usual AO rotation. But it’s a great site that I’ve enjoyed posting to multiple times.  Since The Big Dance has given me sweat, strength, laughs, fellowship, it felt like it was time to give back to the site and lead my TBD VQ. 19 PAX showed up […]

Backwards Blackjack and AMRAP

Posted on

16 PAX assembled at TBD on a cold and rainy winter morning, gloom, true to form, waxing gloomy as ever.  We quickly scooted our way to one of my favorite hills in the nearby environs, where we have created all sorts of pain for ourselves.  Those who have been regulars at TBD probably knew what […]

(Not) Traveling Burpees

Snow? What snow.  We got rain & humidity hovering around 63 degrees – at 0530??! With 14 PAX saddled up and ready to rock, we pulled some gear from YHC’s trunk and circled up. Warm Up SSH (x51 IC) BWS (x10 IC) Arm Circles (Fwd x10 IC; Rev x10 IC) Burpees (x5 OYO) Merkins (hand-release […]

On the 9th Day of Christmas…

Posted on

When I started F3 late this summer I sometimes wondered what happened on those cold days in the dead of winter.  I found out this morning.  The one consistent salutation YHC received from the PAX at the end of the ME was: “Thanks for keeping us warm!” One needs the first F to stay warm […]

Play It Cool…

YHC signed up for this Q a few weeks ago and it seemed like a good idea, but this morning YHC’s brain was fried and was praying for a skeleton crew to post.  Good news is we only had 9 – bad news is that YHC still managed to get ridiculed by the PAX. Warm […]

Experienced, You are Not

Posted on

Sweats tried to sell my Q in his absence touting my experience.  I focused on the positive versus assuming that he meant I was old and tired. I rolled into Durm feeling confident and strong. 20 PAX showed up to welcome the guy from Chapel Hill and we were ready to roll. Warmup:  SSH, Good […]

Focus on Form to Failure

Posted on

As YHC was preparing to Q #TheBigDance on Form week, there was some uncertainty on what way to go.  YHC was doing some research and contemplation on how to approach this workout.  YHC didn’t want to do the exact same work out as others, but having the benefit of the early week, wasn’t as concerned.
