Sing Along


6 years to the day after YHC’s VQ 24 (yes, YHC remembered them all) gentlemen braved the cold and crunchy grass to join me for the annual 12 Days of Christmas beatdown. It took 6 years but we finally got all the PAX singing along with YHC as we rolled through the exercises.

After a brief COP with DQ, SSH and Russian Soldiers we took a little mosey to the pavilion to begin the festivities. Mixed them up this year to shock the system. Extra credit to anyone that can name the 2 exercises that stayed in the same place from years past. (extra credit is 10 burpees OYO)

  • 1 Burpee
  • 2 Sprints across the field
  • 3 Captain Thors
  • 4 Lt. Dans
  • 5 Diamond merkins
  • 6 Bobby Hurleys
  • 7 Monkey Humpers
  • 8 Flutter Kicks IC
  • 9 Freddie Mercurys IC
  • 10 Alt. Shoulder Taps IC
  • 11 Crunchy Frogs IC
  • 12 Polar Bears

Wow, the PAX blew through all of that so fast YHC was forced to come up with some more filler. First hit the parking lot for 12 more polar bears. Then basketball court for ring of fire 12 choice merkins. Close it out with some mary and a few others for good measure.

Great times this morning. Hardywood asked if this was year 5 or 6 and as I went back through the annals of Big Data, I found that not only was this year 6 but it was 12/15/15 that YHC first took the reins of the Q and directed this group of hard chargers into the plush fields of NoToll. The fields were a little crunchy today and to Flatline’s disappointment I did not subject the PAX to mary in the grass, pavilion only. Fresh Prince definitely showed up after Round 2 bc the blur that went by me in a later round of the sprints was not there for the first one. Cooper started the morning wearing lights and they were a great warning for the incoming leg sweep but decided to shut them off and go stealth mode for the last few rounds. DTH’s jingle balls brought the spirit but Boberry wins the Christmas Spirit award.

Not sure who drove further, Hardywood from the country out west, or Corned Beef from the plains in the east but I appreciate them both making the trek for today’s beatdown.

We have all ben given incredible opportunities in life, we should enjoy every one of them and give back where we can. I especially enjoy the chance to get out and lead this group. Have a great day.

HDHH tomorrow @ Hardywood West Creek

  1. Awesome workout Rosie and this will be on my yearly list, I was talking with Double Mint about this upcoming beatdown at Punisher last night and we motivated each other by committing to going to No Toll. Something about ‘I will see you at No Toll’ solidifies the commitment. Respect on remembering 24 names with no phone recording!!! You do this long enough, you get to know the PAX. Cheers and I will see you in the gloom soon….CB!
