When you have the Q, and get up 20 mins late…

  • Workout Date - 12/17/2015
  • Q In Charge - Floppy Disc, Gymboree
  • The PAX - Gymboree (Respect), Commodore (Respect), Puma, Floppy Disc (QIC)
  • AO -

When it’s your Q, it’s always a good idea to get up a little earlier than you normally would for the same Post.  Something about collecting your wits, making sure the #Gameplan is polished and ready, and greeting the PAX as they arrive.  This AM, none of that occurred.

I finally fought my way out of the #Fartsack at 0522, with a 15 min drive to the AO.  Thankfully, there were none of #Greenville’sFinest out and about to witness the flight from my house to #Goldenstrip. Made it in 9 mins, and arrived at 0534.  Needless to say, the Pax that showed were not going to let a late Q deter a good #Beatdown

WU and Disclaimer – can’t verify if either was given, since they were already #Working

Thang 1

Since it was pouring rain, the fine gents and I decided to take advantage of the covered walkway that reached the length of the school, Thanks G’ville County Schools! We stayed (mostly) dry as we did the following:

1 Pax ran the length of the walkway, about 100 yds total, while the (now) other 3 Pax did AMRAP on whichever exercise was up – Merkins, Squats, Lunges, or Dips.  We made it through at least 1 round of each Pax on the run, and then YHC introduced them to my planned #Beatdown

Thang 2

Is that wall under the cover of the walkway? It is!  Perfect…time for Elevens

We started at 1 end of the wall with 10 burpees, and then lunge walked about 40 yards to a dry section of the wall for some #WallofFire – while the Pax assumed the Peoples Chair, each pax would do 1 merkin, and then the group moseyed back to our starting point.

Rinse and repeat with dropping a burpee, and adding a merkin to the WallofFire reps, until you do 1 Burpee, and 10 merkins per Pax.

With a smaller group of 4 this AM, the #WallofFire did not burn as much as it could have, but strong work was done by all.

Since we did start this one later, no time for Mary this morning.


A – Convergence for Gideon’s House on 12/23 as a strong sendoff, and encouragement for the brothers of Gideon’s – know that we are here to support you.  RSVP here in the comments.

P – Continued prayers for @RateHike‘s recovery in @F3Lex, as well as peace during the holidays amongst our families as the stress of family relationships can overwhelm our joy in the real meaning of Christmas.



It is always an honor to lead, and this morning did not disappoint.  The #WallofFire always gives time for some #2ndF, and this AM, I was fortunate to post with some brothers that I don’t see that often.  Never miss an opportunity to get to know brothers that you don’t see as often.


As @Whisper always mentions, and is true for me as well – I wouldn’t do this on my own.

Thanks for showing up

Until next time,

YHC – Floppy Disc
