Closing Out 2018 In Style

Posted on

For the second week running Devil’s Ridge fell on a holiday and we were able to push back our start times.  0630 EC at the pull-up bars and 0700 ME. 7 PAX came out early for Cindy EC. Cindy is the non-running portions of a Murph.  We decided to replace the merkins with KB swings. […]

New Year’s Eve, and #the_eagle was on for regular time at 5:30am. Apparently some PAX clocks are already moving on into 2019, as there were 9 PAX present to begin the warm-up, but 15 PAX in the circle by the time Warm-o-rama concluded (to be fair, some of these were Ruckers returning to base camp). […]

Banned Again!

Posted on

Way back when, I wrapped up what I believe was my V-Q at the Vortex. Assisi honored me by saying I was banned from Qing there again. I guess that didn’t stick though since he passed the site Q baton to me a few months ago. I was honored this morning by Mr. Brady who […]

Boxing Day beatdown…..Kinda

Posted on

So on a cold Boxing Day 3 PAX gathered together after the slothfulness of Christmas day. YHC did a quick warm-up with jog around the parking lot, some SSH, Good Mornings, and Imperial Walkers. Then we commenced with a 20 minute no break workout. With light weights in hand we did 1 minute circuits of […]

BADGERs at Bull Plaza

Posted on

Intro: If it weren’t for Happy Gilmore, I would’ve totally FS’ed today’s Q. I don’t know what possessed YHC to jump on the opportunity, but I decided to go for it. On the flight home, I was struggling to come up with ideas, so I wrote “HONEYBADGER” on the margin of a legal pad. After […]

The perfect route?

Posted on

I roughed out a route the night before not thinking too much about timing and distance. The goal was to get around 6 miles, maybe more if we could do it. As it turns out, the route and our pace worked out almost exactly right. We finished in 119 minutes, just shy of the official […]

Breakin’ 3

John Boy pulled out the “Electric Bugaloo” exercise last week at the Wall and it got me thinking about doing a workout to old skool rap music from my teenage years. I think it was just an excuse to pull out some of the songs I remember from my short-lived rap phase in the mid […]
