Dora 2.0

I’m sure the PAX have long since tired of hearing YHC complain about Doras. The reason for those complaints are because the Dora excludes so many of the gloom’s benefits. Reps aren’t done together. There’s no opportunity for camaraderie nor quality mumblechatter. No one is there to pick up the six and encourage. Form and […]

Touchy Feely

YHC saw an opening for the upcoming Q the week before and decided to jump on it before someone else took it and YHC talked himself out of it. Had all weekend to prepare and preblasted Slack about the Touchy Feely theme to stir some PAX curiosity. 5 PAX for EC Murph Training & 3 […]

TheThicket Flag Enters Again

4 PAX came running in from some Murph training. 10 PAX circled up at 5:30 sharp to warm up with SSH, WMH, forward arm circles, reverse arm circles, seal claps and overhead claps. YHC had a plan for the day and was going to do some trivia about when TheThicket was started.  Quiz the current […]

Beware the Ides of March

This weeks theme for my Q was going to be “combinations”. The thought was to try and combine our traditional exercises, try some new stuff, and see how it worked out. With an interesting pre-blast of an old school Combination Padlock, 19 PAX still showed up to see what YHC had in store. 5 PAX […]

Carrot Farming

To keep from losing a bet and having to jump into chilly Jordan Lake in early March, Maraschino has been working hard to amp up attendance at The Thicket in February (and try to beat Paradise’s total numbers for the month.  Well it was effective today, with 25 PAX out in the gloom for the […]

The Thickstang

YHC was lucky enough to grab the last spot of 2020 on the Thicket Q sheet.  Having not Q’d many boot camp workouts or even posted all that much lately, for that matter, YHC planned today’s workout for the wrong AO which required some moseying (this was a lame joke that fell flat, or else […]
