Longbottom's Retribution

  • Workout Date - 06/19/2015
  • Q In Charge - Castaway
  • The PAX - Earthmover, Inspector Gadget, Longbottom, Annie Oakley, THE Funky Bunch, Castaway
  • AO -

A few weeks back Longbottom provided enough of a beatdown to warrant threats of payback – today was the day of retribution and 6 Pax showed up to join in the fun.

Unfortunately, today was also the day that followed yesterday – a day marked by Padre’s Q of relentless punishment. YHC had to dig deep – thankfully I had to make good on my promise to adequately repay Longbottom’s contribution to our general fitness and any thoughts of lightening up due to Padre’s aforementioned beatdown pissed me off.

Today we also continued the tradition started by Sushi last week: the awarding of the DogPound Dogbone of Honor for the Pax giving the greatest effort. The group decides but previous week’s awardee is not allowed to vote. Last week’s initial awardee, Longbottom added the name of this week’s awardee (YHC) on the bone shank of honor (just roll with it folks) – I will have it on hand next week for the handoff. Do what you will when you win it but I’m telling myself it entitles me to steak tonight.

If you haven’t yet visited the DogPound in TR you are missing out. The core group of guys are determined to push themselves to their limits and we have barely begun to explore all of the options presented by the AO.
