The Thang

A run-filled aerobic beatdown today at the Hogg. We will never be able to fully confirm, but I suspect it was the most awesome workout that occurred at the Hogg between the hours of 0530-0615 on 3/8/2018.


  • 20 Abe Vigodas for warmup at Flags
  • Slow bell double-applesauce run from Hogg to quarter-mile track near fun deck. “Snoop’s Law” activated during run – every time a car passes the PAX, drop and do 5 Merkins. About 35 Merkins done. Possible Beanie sighting along the way.
  • At the Track:
    • 50 LBCs. Zero mumblechatter.
    • Run 1/8 M to far corner of track. Shots and Leprechaun used their blinding white legs to set the beginning and end points of the peloton.
    • 50 SSHs, with correct form instruction to Q by Leprechaun (most appreciated, as good form is critical).
    • Run 1/8 M to start of track
    • 30 Reverse-lunges
    • Run 1/8 M to far corner of track
    • 50 Imperial Walkers
    • Run 1/8 M to start of track
    • 50 correct SSHs
    • Run 1/8 M to far corner of track
    • 50 count hold Al Gores
    • Run back to Flags, Snoop’s Law resulted in about 25 Merkins
    • 20 low flutter kicks
    • 10 Led Zeppelins (that is, Bridge Plank holds…. Have you seen the Bridge?)
    • The Thunderstruck: Listen to ACDC’s “Thunderstruck” in plank position, and do a Merkin every time “thunder” said out loud. The PAX all did a really great job singing along with lead singer Bryan Johnson, incredible that everyone knew the words.
CountORama and NameORama

See above.


  • It was a fun beatdown today gents. At the end of the workout, the Q reflexively and unintentionally said “great job Q!,” failing to remember that he was in fact the Q that morning. This caused a very lively and immediate mumbchatter from the circle, with all PAX joining in and enthusiastically congratulating themselves for the most excellent workout that had just occurred.
  • We then had some solid announcements – Pacecar is organizing the MD Anderson 5K Scope run on March 24 (let’s kick cancer’s butt!), so register and post with us beforehand so that we can all do the 5K together.
  • In other news, Britney and Guitar Hero confirmed that they would be participating (and winning, obviously) the upcoming Spartan race. Notably, both HIMs will be having their 2.0s run the mini Spartan race as well, and Guitar hero’s daughter can use the race to raise money for her school, which was impacted by the storm. Please reach out Britney and Guitar Hero if you wish to participate or donate.
  • The Q closed out the BOM with a reminder (most importantly to himself) to be humble, and also to push ourselves to leave the ball and go back out into the world to be better leaders, fathers, husbands, brothers, sons, and friends. A final moment of thanks was given to the men and women of our Armed Forces, who guard the very freedoms that give us the rights and privileges to meet ITG.
