So lately YHC has had a difficult time making it to workouts that I’ve HC’ed to (or even signed up to Q), I’ve got a full excuse bag, primarily: dog was up all night with diarrhea and/or baby was up all night crying.  Neither of those happened last night, so YHC actually showed up to my scheduled Q of #AcesWild

The VSF was planted and 5 good neighbors hung out.

The Conditions: Muggy.  63 degrees Fahrenheit, clear, 100% humidity.

The Thang: Extra credit (Zoila only): 20 burpees (of the 50 I owe for fartsacking the Q)

Regular-scheduled workout:  Fast-mosey North on Waccamaw Avenue, right on Westminster Drive, left on Augusta Place.

Line-up for a last man run.

Last-man run SE on Augusta Street, left on Byrd, quick left on Mt. Vista, left on Penn, right on Tallulah.  At some point we did an extended elbow plank session.

Get to the bottom of the hill.  We’re essentially at the bottom of a valley, with a hill in front and a hill behind.

Double Jacob’s Ladder (top of one hill, 1 burpee, turn around, top of the other hill, 1 burpee, turn around, top of the first hill, 2 burpees, and so on, to 7).

That was terrible, but we all finished with time on the clock.  Once more into the breach dear friends, 1 burpee, up the hill, 1 more burpee.  (In aggregate, we each did 58 burpees and ran 16 hills.

Mosey back.


Ye Olde Moleskine:


As I mentioned, I’ve got 30 more burpees, but just didn’t have the stomach for them today.

Great to see everyone.  Thanks to Grim Reaper and Soup for making the trek.

Larry Birds to Grim Reaper and Latka.  Burpees are definitely my kryptonite, but they have no adverse effects on those guys.

Before we got going, Soup was talking about Carowinds and roller coasters came up, and Grim Reaper mentioned The Fury.  Our route today was definitely up and down like a roller coaster (to quote 2Pac), hence the name for the workout.

War baby today was YHC at 31, war daddy was Stewie at 37.  #Diversity.

Total mileage: 4.2.
