25x step ups (left foot lead)
25x step ups (right foot lead)

The Beast (Carolina drydocs, burpees, freddie mercs, WWI situps, burpees, LBC)

mosey to VSF

discuss upcoming events
discuss friends/family in need of prayers


Perhaps because the burpees had been pre-announced, this workout featured only most hardened attendees and no double-dippers. Jolly Rancher is clearly the fastest at burpees, although I think it does help to be only 55″ tall.

Flip Phone is also quick at burpees. Fortunately, his “sprinting” during the Beast is not up to par with his burpeeing. Thus, YHC could keep up. Groh continues to show strong improvement across the board. YHC is hoping to add a weekday morning to Groh’s week.

When the workout ended, it was unusual not to see Earthworm take off at a 9.58 second/100m pace (for about 7-9 steps). We are looking forward to his return from Texas next week.

Congrats to those who ran the 10 miler this weekend. Looking forward to hearing about the race.

I have Q tomorrow at no toll. Hmm… What to do?

  1. Hmm, I saw the Q sheet. I suddenly feel a cold coming on…
    Nice work, boys. Hopefully, I will be able to start the DD again after basketball season.
