Meatballs AMRAP Workout

I see burpees

Weather: 36 degrees, 87% humidity, Winds SW @ 2mph

17 pax jumped out of the fartsack this morning to get in their workout before heading to the polls. Had they known what YHC had in store, they may have decided otherwise.  There were 16 more pax here today than at Crypt on Saturday for the Lexington blizzard.  YHC felt it necessary to punish the pax for blowing off Saturday’s workouts due to a little freezing cold rain and torrential downpours, followed by sleet and snow.

  • The pax were not pleased with all of the burpees at the beginning of the workout, especially in the warm up.  However, all did a great job and will be better for it.
  • Congrats to Gravedigger for not getting too confused today on when to run and when not to run. If you were at Shawshank last Thursday, you know what I’m talking about.
  • Overall, YHC was impressed with the effort put forth by everyone.  All pax are getting better and it shows.  We are starting to get more in our workouts now that we can all move a little faster.


  • Get out and Vote!
  • GoRuck training continues 5 days a week until the event on 11/21.
  • Christmas party on December 19th at the Country Club of Lexington.  Mark your calendar’s.  Should be a great time.

Prayer Request:  Continued prayers for Walker and family.  Also continue praying for all the pax who are recovering from injuries.
