A PAX of 1 showed up for a humid SOT morning beatdown. This may or may not be how it went down:
Half lap around the track, some warm up exercises. 10 min. of burpees
20 dips, 5 pull ups on the scorers tower, 15/5, 10/5, 5/5 (10 sec hold if 5 not done)

Indigenous people run around the track
11s – American Hammer/CDD, Burpees/Donkey Kicks
Repeat Dip/Pull up ladder
Mary – American Hammer, Flutter kicks, Heels to Heaven, Dollies, Box Cutters, Dr. W, others
The question that crossed my mind during the beatdown is similar to the tree falling in the forest quandary; if only 1 PAX posts to a workout, how do we know what was done? The answer to that one of course is The Backblast. The other question, well that will just perplex minds forever.
YHC has been on vacation for the past 4 days and after getting in late last night checked the Q sheet for SOT. No one signed up but since it was late and I wasn’t sure if I would make it, I did not fill in the blank. When YHC pulled in the lot with no Lugnut or Wilson I started to worry that I would be the only one there. At 0530 the workout began and only those who were there will really know how it went down. Needless to say it was an epic beatdown that will not be soon forgotten.
I was hoping for a good beatdown this morning since the only exercise YHC got on vacation was 12 oz curls and an exercise in patience with 5 kids wanting to tube, ski, fish and swim at the same time. YHC briefly considered hitting the coffeeteria at 0530 but decided against it and hit the PAX with a series of unrelenting work. No breaks. How else are you going to get through all that in 45 min?
Bobber has assured me that he will post at SOT again next week and hopefully he can bring others even though YHC will not be there.
