Keep It 101

16 PAX enjoyed the Cosmo undercard at TBL, prelude to the big-shindig-that-is-not-a-convergence next Saturday for the coronation of Teo as new Churham Nantan (Apache for “chief.”) 5 got in an EC run and one did an EC ruck. Appreciative that most heeded YHC’s request to be circled up at 0700, as the warmup included a […]

Old Blood and Guts

YHC probably should have been a little less cryptic in the pre-blast and made it clear that long sleeves and long pants were advisable for today’s TBL shenanigans. Alas, Pep and Scrooge showed up in shorts and suffered the consequences. A few battle scars can be a good thing, though, and Pep has already assured […]

Abracadabra

YHC’s oldest 2.0 Houdini is not a stranger to Qing, most memorably burpeeing a bunch of old dudes into the ground on his 11th birthday last August at The Piranha. But it had been a minute, and he was itching to get back on the sheet. His first-ever post was at Thin Blue Line, a […]

41 and 2

Two years ago tomorrow, YHC showed up solo to Tobacco Road for a Kia-led beatdown that nearly led to a merlot toss. Floyd’s mumblechatter kept me distracted enough to fight through everything, and it was he who came up with Cosmo, a nod to my past life as a magazine editor. In the intervening two […]

Six Feet Apart

We got together to get stronger in many ways, all of which will be needed in the days ahead in our communities. We observed COVID-19 protocol for the entire time we were together: wear gloves, no physical contact, stay six feet apart at all times. It’s different, but it works!

Boo Boo’s VQ, Animal Movements, and a Tunnel of Love

TBL has been fun this year. It’s always been fun, but the latest flavor iteration has become something I look forward to each week. Dark, cold, and early, we convene for EC to “meet ourselves,” euphemistically referring to kicking our own asses with sandbags. Then it’s a business-as-usual main event. And then you’ve earned some […]

Top-Down, No Burpees

A good crowd on a chilly morning. The PAX prepared for a top-down workout which YHC had piloted a few weeks ago at Vortex, but maybe got right this time around. Or maybe we’ll need to do it again. Anyway, events began with a reasonably-traditional Warm Up: SSH Good Mornings Windmills Imperial Walkers Slow Wide […]

Go, Go, Go, Go! Roll, Roll, Roll, Roll!

A quick joint BB from Saturday’s festivities at TBL. Potter and Houdini, Malware’s and YHC’s 2.0s, respectively, put their name on the Romper Room Q sheet for this Saturday a while back. YHC noticed last week the TBL Q sheet was open, so grabbed it and got Malware to co-Q. A Dees-Foreman takeover! At TBL, […]

Walk (nevermind, Run) the Plank

Whew, it was a chilly one this morning! The first post for YHC in the heavy frost this season. At 0700, three brave souls were ready to take on the day and the cold. Between 0700 and 0703, three more braved the gloom for a total of 6. Six worked out perfect for the workout. […]
