Hot Yoga or TOT Yoga?

  • Workout Date - 04/01/2019
  • Q In Charge - Squid
  • The PAX - Lt Dangle, Priscilla, Butterbean, Cockpit, Hot for Teacher, NYOPT, Turban, Benign, Sprinkles, Whisper, YHC
  • AO - Tower of Terror

With great anticipation, YHC was looking forward to TOT on Monday morning knowing Thumper was on the Q schedule.  Disappointment set in upon seeing Thumper calling for a substitute due to possible bronchitis.  My initial reaction was one of complete shock…..how could Thumper possibly become infected with bronchitis 1 week removed from spending 30+ hours in a van full of group of Golden Strippers who place such a high value on hygiene, such as using van windows to log key performance metrics such as cans of Pringles consumed and deuces delivered?  Very strange!  My 2nd reaction?  I wanted to avoid a workout filled with Soccer Mom impersonating Tony Horton or Lt Dangle forcing us to push a coupon from one of the parking lot to the other.  Time to control your down destiny, so YHC gladly took the Q.

YHC last had the honor of TOT Q on 2/20.  On that day:

  • Temperature was 37 deg
  • Lt Dangle was standing in front of his cleverly disguised unmarked patrol car as I pulled into TOT
  • Creeper Van was making the 1st pass of the day, shocks just a squeaking over the speed bumps

………6 weeks later:

  • Temperature was 37 deg
  • Lt Dangle was standing in front of his cleverly disguised unmarked patrol car as I pulled into TOT
  • Creeper Van was making the 1st pass of the day, shocks just a squeaking over the speed bumps

F3 Mission: Nailed it.

Disclosure: I am not Thumper, and therefore I am not a professional.

 

Warmup:

-SSH IC x 12 or 20….hard to tell since YHC mucked up the cadence

-Windmill x 15.  Got better.

-Light stretching for 1.2 seconds for HFT benefit

-Indian run for ¾ mile; was designed to be much shorter but YHC missed the turnaround.  (Passed by the Creeper Van idling in the ol’ filling station parking lot with the soft glow of an iPhone lighting the interior.  Nope, nothing suspicious about updating your MySpace profile at 5:40am on a Monday morning in a deserted gas station parking lot. Move along….nothing to see here.)

NM:

-Great work by all…..400 reps not including Lunge Squalkers.

-YHC knew clarification would be needed for the Imperial Lunge Squalker.  Initial results of the beta test from this morning’s focus group were positive…only audible negative feedback originated from HFT with a concentration of disdain detected in the comment “Okay, let’s do this thing Squid invented.”  Full results of beta test will not be available until tomorrow’s assessment of hamstring conditions.

-For HFT’s clarification, YHC described Dive Bombers as “Down Dog into Cobra.”  Apparently I was speaking his language with the sudden positive affirmation.

-Speaking of Yoga, there was some type of conversation about Lt Dangle, hot yoga at HFT’s house on Friday night, 1 person sauna, Subarus, and other low emission vehicles.  Maybe instead of “Hot Yoga” it will be advertised more appropriately as “TOT Yoga”?  GoFundMe campaign started for HFT to build a bigger sauna.

-Kudos to Lt Dangle and his TOT capital improvement campaign….best t-shirt in the land, public restrooms being constructed, and he is personally bringing Sidewall Pizza to the 8-0.

Proud to stand next to you, humbled to have the opportunity to lead you.

SYITG,

Squid
