The Thang

As I walked from my car and gave fist bumps to the Pax that were already there, Cruiser noticed and said, “It looks like you have a little spring to your step.”  Aye.  I was ready to rinse and refine a WO from my previous sloppy Q.  YHC could give a bunch of reasons why it didn’t go well, but HIMs don’t give excuses.  HIMs take responsibility for the negative outcome, find out what went wrong, and make sure the problems get fixed.

Seeing Hammertime posting after being out with plantar fasciitis and having an unexpected visit from my old buddy KFC gave me additional springs to my step.

Count off in groups of 3 for Animal Relays:
Rinse and Repeat twice
1st Round – Bear Crawls
2nd Round – Crab Walks
(Hammertime should be called Doubletime when he gets in the zone.  Seeing his doubletime speed during the bear crawl had me saying, “That’s not a man. That’s a bear!”)
Grab some rail at Bushwood / Driving Range
Cindy – This is the name from F3 Exicon, but really it’s a variation of the Murph
Four sets of
Australian Pull-Ups x5 IC (Total of 40)
Push ups x 10 IC (Total of 80)
Squats x 15 IC (Total of 120)
Lots of labor noises by the third set. Called for a 10-count at that time and then called out one additional set.  It was brutal. Even the Q had to modify those last few push ups.
Final Course of Dessert served by Cruiser and Hammertime
Captain Thor!!! (Big Boy Situps with American Hammers at a 1:4 ratio went all the way to 10:40).  If the PAX and Q weren’t smoked by then, they were now.  
Head back to Shovel Flags
Jailbreak at the end.  Thanks for Whiskey for friendly encouragement to stay strong through the sprint to the SH by shouting to me, “Don’t let an old man beat you!”  
CountORama and NameORama

23 PAX (0 FNGs) were served a solid beatdown by YHC with a final course of desserts from Cruiser and Hammertime.


Glad KFC’s Ava is doing better, but prayers for the long road ahead.  Thoughts and prayers for the Swendsen family during the holiday season.  Whiskey took us out in prayer.


Congratulations for all Pax who made it through the workout.  It would definitely made Sad Clowns splash merlot. If you are wondering where the heart of  my WO comes from, it is a variation of the Murph.  By next summer, YHC hopes to complete the actual Murph workout, with some modification on the pull-ups, minimal modification on the push-ups, and minus the 20lb. body armor.  It’s fitness goal that also honors Lt. Michael Murphy and all that serve in the US special forces.

This was YHC fourth time at the Q. If you are nervous about messing up and making mistakes, please don’t let that prevent you from taking your VQ.  Mistakes will be made, but the more experienced Pax will make sure you are successful. You will see also benefit in your personal life by taking the Q.  I can already see the impact in mine.
