The tale of the lost Weinke


Eight hard chargers posted for a soupy day at the Circus.  Here’s how it went down:

Circle up in lot for warmup COP: SSH, hillbillies, imperial walkers, russian soldiers, scorpion kicks, T stretch

15 min AMRAP: 10 kb squats, 15 deadlifts, 20 WWII sit-ups

10 min EMOM: 20 kb swings odd minutes and 10 burpees even minutes

12 min AMRAP: 10 close grip merkins w hands on the bell (these are awful), 5 kb shoulder presses ea hand, 10 leg raises

Mary: 10 skull crushers and 10 Alabama Honeymoons

COT and Attila took us out

NMM: Let’s start with the issue of who had the Q.  This workout can be a bit like Batteau with nobody signing up till the last minute.  YHC logged on to signup only to discover that HoneyDo had indeed stepped up.  As YHC’s weinke was already prepared, YHC politely consulted with HoneyDo to see if he was OK giving up the Q.  Without hesitation, HoneyDo cracked another brew and gave up the Q.  Enter Johnsonville who waited till YHC started the 0530 speech to claim that he was in fact the one with the Q.  There was a second where the two rams were about to go at it, but British style manners prevailed.

Toga: “No really, you take the Q.”

JVille: “Oh no, I couldn’t possibly, you should do it.”


Once we got to work, everyone kept up a good pace with Chum Bucket and Offshore lapping everyone on the AMRAPs.  White Deer and Johnsonville even managed a call and response of the rear end horn section.  Chili Fest at Denny’s is hard on F3!

Re the title, yes, there was a weinke.  It was lost somewhere in the middle of the workout, and YHC could not find it in his short pockets or in the small area we were using for the AO.  The document revealed itself towards the end of the workout.  Was it stuck to YHC in some inconvenient location, did White Deer hide it in hopes of avoiding some of the workout, did Conspiracy return it during the COT with nobody noticing?  The world may never know.

Stay Classy,

    Should have not cracked open that last brew last night. What is with timed Burpees this week Toga? I had enough of those at Batteau. Great beatdown!
