Dirty Dozen in The Boat


Twelve studs rolled up to Batteau today for YHC’s VQ. The gloom was deep, the soup was thick, and after welcoming a fellow traveler from South of the Border – Stumpjumper (Charlotte) – here’s how it went:

COP: IC Don Quixotes, Imperial Walkers, Russian Soldiers, Freddie Mercuries, Mountain Climbers


Mosey to the sledding hill for 11s: Hand Release Merkins + WWIIs

Mosey to a line of six trees and pardner up. Pardner A bear crawls to first tree, runs back; Pardner B does ABCs AMRAP, then switch so Pardner B goes a bear crawlin while Pardner A works on his penmanship. Travellin mode to trees 1-3 was the crawling bears, trees 4-6 was Bernie Sanders. The PAX was feelin the Bern, and mumble chatter mentioned a “bonus tree,” so a backpeddlin we went, with a taste of Al Gore for the six.

Mosey to the tennis courts for some four corners: 25 Carolina Dry Docks, 50 squats, 75 SSHs, 100 LBCs with crabwalks in between.

Mosey to some picnic tables for 5 incline merkins on the table + 5 dips on the bench + 5 merkins of choice on the ground. Set of three then repeato to double your pleasure. Sippy Cup was observed to be doing some sort of Bruce Lee merkin variant with one hand and one foot in the air; nunchucks likely tucked in the weight vest.

Serpentine mosey up and down the sledding hill then back to the flag for some Mary: Heels to Heaven, Hi/Lo Flutter Kicks, Freddie Mercuries and then – of course – The Burpee. 10 OYO.

Numberama, nameorama, and YHC took us out.

— Hump Day Happy Hour this Wednesday at 6:00; park at Palani Drive. Kubota has the deets.

— Puppy Pile this Saturday; bring your 2.0s!

Thanks to the PAX for putting out today and supporting the VQ!

    Solid VQ – Double Mint – welcome to the Q sheet buddy .
    Way to work guys !
    See y’all in the gloom..

  2. Nice VQ, double mint! I’m smoked.
    Nice working with you, Stumpjumper. Thanks for joining us this morning.

  3. Had to catch this VQ. Was hoping for 100 Pickle Pounders on the pickleball courts…

  4. What are the chances there is Poison Ivy under the trees at the top of the sledding hill by Forrest Hill Ave where we did the HRM’s in the 11s?
    Asking for a friend.

  5. Unsure — but your VQ almost splashed merlot up there on turn 2 of the serpentine run.

  6. Great job Doublemint.
    What was the deal with the walking dead lady on the hill at the end?

  7. Solid VQ, doublemint. Great way to start the week. Love having a deep squad at Batteau

  8. Was sleeveless and no itch – and usually if there’s Poison Ivy within 100 yards I get it. There were, however, many mosquitoes out there this AM.
