Great workout in the gloom, which didn’t seem so gloomy today. Even though we won’t see daylight in our weekday workouts until summer, the pax has made it clear that this is a good thing, no one wants to see YHC’s mug at 5:30 AM anyway. The pack seemed much more excited to hear the first goal line exercise initially announced as crab walks changed to bear crawls before beginning. YHC apologizes for the confusion, he’d never willingly call for crab walks.

Great workout guys. Looking forward to some virgin Qs this week with Iron tomorrow and Fudd Thursday. Slightly embarrassing when Wilson comments rather loudly and enthusiastically that he MISSES ALL THE VIRGINS, this occurred at The Daily Grind Saturday after the workout.

Welcome FNG Gilligan!

    Also like to give a shout out to Beaver who attended from the Greensboro PAX. I’ve been trying to get a friend down there to attend Beaver, I think weather has been a factor.

  2. Wedding, how did I get pulled into this? Geeze – one little comment! I’ll be there Thursday! I’m sure Iron & Fudd will be bringing the pain.

  3. Excellent BB, sorry I missed this workout, looks like it was a good one!

    @Wilson — wow.
