Pocahontas Middle School

6 faithful entered the cold rainy gloom to push each other once again. As we gathered in the rain the mumble chatter was I wasn’t sure anyone would be here but yet we had strong numbers for our WTH band of brothers. 1 week to my respect day and I led the charge through the cold. The Thang: Head out towards west broad village stop at a familiar spot to do some warms ups 3/4 mile into the run. 10 Imperial walkers, 11 Ukrainian solders…its raining lets go. Mosey to parking decks for the work: Start for climb stop at…

For a litany of reasons, had been a while since YHC had 1) posted 2) Q’d. A late night group text from Lighthouse asking for a Q and I decided to take the reigns. Having given no thought to a gameplan, I decided to reheat a workout I Q’d at WTH back in July. Here’s what we did: Head out from the AO and run to Windsor Place/Thamesford Way neighborhood Halt at the small cul-de-sac right off Thamesford for the disclaimer and a brief warm up We then headed to the parking lot at Church Run Community Pool for Elevens,…

Eight great men came to the big sale and the free 20 minutes of bootcamp was the clear promotion winner. 7 ran off to short pump park while Pigskin did his Pocahontas workout solo. The lucky seven did some warmups of DQ, Helicopters, Moroccans & Ukranian Soldiers and then did elevens of dips and merkins and ran the park circle for about a mile total. The lucky seven eventually found a street in the Village and did some Bear Crawls one way and WWIIs the other and ran back to find Pigskin. Total mileage of 3.4. Pigskin was feeling better…

With people out of town, others on the sick list and Roger Roger flying, it was just Lighthouse and me today. 6 trips at a fast walk around the school, 200 merkins and 200 dips. Discussion of coal in Ukraine and what happened when Nixon froze prices (again) in 1973.

I just remembered I never wrote up the WaThoHuk from last Wednesday. It’s because I was the only one. I know illness claimed two of the regulars. And none of the semi-regulars were there. And no one from out of town. So I did my (these days) usual. 5 times around the school, 20 merkins, 20 dips, twice each time around the school for a total of 200 merkins and 200 dips. That left me with enough time to walk around the school one more time. Merry Christmas! Frohe Weihnachten! Feliz Navidad!

A visitor from Raleigh, El Chapo, plus two local F3ers met at Pocahontas Middle School. While El Chapo and Lighthouse went running to places unknown and doing the usual WaThoHuk workout, YHC walked around the school 6 times (1 more time and the school would have fallen down) and did 200 merkins and 200 dips. Questions were asked about how El Chapo was able to escape from confinement. That information is classified, but if you show up at WaThoHuk, we will provide some useful suggestions in case you end up confined. In the meantime, he plans to return before anyone…

Two runners got in 4.2 miles, 55 hand release merkins, 55 squats, 30 dips, 30 step ups and some thorns while Pigskin did 200 merkins and 200 dips with some walking. Where were you?

4 regulars showed up this dark and rainy morning. Interestingly, everyone thought that no one else is going to show up. But, show up they did! Ran to a parking deck. After a usual warm-up we did sevens. First round was hand-release Merkins and two-count Freddies, second round was Burpees and American Hammers. Ran to the lake, did three rounds of 20 Dips, 10 Derkins, and 20 Squats. Ran back to the flag. Finished with 20 pole smokers. Overall, ran 3.8 miles. Great job everyone.

The morning started off with Offshore being so excited for his FNG (Yoda) to show up that he locked his keys in his car. And it ended with him racing off in Pinto’s car which surprisingly outran my CRV. In between, a stretching Pigskin sensed the following: A 3 mile run interrupted by warmups of Helicopters, cherry pickers, imperial walkers, dolly’s, suzanne somers. Then we did P.I.L.G.R.I.M.S. in between runs: P: 16 Plank jacks I: 21 Iron Mike L: 16 Lt. Dans (1 squat, 4 (2 count) lunges) G: 21 Groiners R: 16 Reverse Crunches I: 21 Imperial Squat Walkers…
