It’s About Choice

So, I am really loving the recent decision to offer choices at the So Village workouts. PAX can choose either a traditional boot camp style workout, or opt for a strength training circuit. Coz, really, who doesn’t like choice? Choice is good. Choice is right. Choice is freedom. Choice is the American way. Beautiful morning. […]

Shutup You Jerks

Still mourning the loss of the Hurricanes to the Bruins and the refs YHC abandoned the idea of a tribute to the Canes and did what Shooter would do after a UNC loss and just try to work out my anger. However as random penalties were given out last night so would they be today. […]

Game of Thrones – Seven Kingdoms

14 pax rolled into Bastille for a Game of Thrones inspired workout by Spooky. Pax were given a sword or axe to use as a coupon during the workout. Yelling war-like phrases was encouraged. Near the AO was a group of women working out. The women probably thought we were crazy as we ran by […]

Half a Bert – Respect!

This morning Bastille was jacked by camp Gladiator! If you needed on more reason to start at 5:30–there it is! I called an audible as I planned to use the part of the parking lot they were using. Fun factoid: A suicide on the basketball court is ~200yds; about the same as a half loop […]

Warmup: SSH, Arm Circles, 10 merkins, Lil Abners, 5 Burpees OYO, Good Morning, 10 merkins, Cotton Pickers, 5 Burpees OYO The Thang: Mosey to the momolith by the pond and pair up.

Merkinfest 2018

(Disclaimer- some of the PAX may be wrong…YHC failed to record the name-o-rama and then waited 4 days to post the BB. Rookie moves) YHC messed up his knee playing the young person’s game of soccer recently, so by Doc’s orders no running, no jumping, no squats for another 5 weeks. But, this Friday was […]

What’s behind door #2?

Four met at 5:05 for a 5k EC. Can I tell you that I dig EC? There’s a point at every workout that I’m not feeling it. My knee, ankle, calf, or shoulder may not feel 100% or I’m sucking wind. I get through that in EC, which makes ME that much better. I may […]

Bear-Stille Yo Face

Every time I see Southern Village on my calendar, I get a warm giddy feeling inside. It’s like my Happy Place. It’s like donuts and consensual sex. Even when it’s bad to the bone, it’s still hella good. Love the fact that you can expect a healthy number of “Respect!” brothers to show up. Let […]
