conditions: it was chilly. Colder than a witches …you know what.
After a discussion with R2D2 we thought it would be a fun/nightmarish or good/terrible idea to invite the Columbia Splinter over for a Celebrity Q/Death match. When YHC was moving from Charlotte to the Columbia area for a job. Tiger Rag in Area51 informed YHC I would probably have to get a name change if I moved to Columbia and posted with F3. So YHC and the M decided on Chapin/Lake Murray area just to keep the moniker. Thanks to the other Splinter’s graciousness in allowing to happen. YHC digresses, back to the workout. Columbia Splinter’s Qs exist in legendary status. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on perspectives, YHC has garnered a reputation for leading some terrible painful #suckfests as well. The joint Splinter Q was intended to share terrible pain inducing ideas and make the Havoc pax stronger. Mission was accomplished this one sucked.

great workout. shoulders and lungs burning for a solid 45 minutes.
great to have a guest Q. It was decided Havoc will join with BATTLE downtown a couple of times a year for bragging rights.
R2 commented he would have preferred to run 5 miles at the end of the workout rather than do hairburners. Splinter enjoyed them and you are welcome to borrow the plates anytime.
Tclaps to Bud for sticking with the shorts every morning this winter, even when sub freezing temps.
Not sure Clarice knew what he was getting into posting at this particular Havoc
This workout was in Abacus’ wheelhouse – burpees and running.
