Lake Murray – Depot

Cinco de Mayonnaise

Conditions 64 degrees, humid (or “uumid” as the uumans north of the mason/dixon say), fields were dry and absolutely perfect for some Saturday Handball….but, c’est la vie. Remember when we used to play Handball on Saturdays??? This being May the 4th, I’m sure the PAX were thinking that YHC, in his utter coolness, would do …

Los Lobos de Depot

Conditions 50 degrees, crystal clear starry skies…..perfect conditions for a collision of worlds.  Paradigm shifting. As usual, explicit lyrics below, you’ve been warned…. Foreskin Saturday XL boot camps prior to Handball have been a “thing” at Depot for over a year now.  At times attendance has been strong, and less so at other times (particularly …

5 Years of Pothole

26 PAX showed up this morning ready to do some work. Here’s where things get sketchy. Did the other 25 PAX show up because it was YHC’s 5 year anniversary, or because Neckbrace challenged that “if we have 25 I’ll let y’all dress me up in gamecock gear for my Q next Tuesday.” I’d like …

SHIFT WORK

Reflection: YHC is not really sure what happened during this Q. When YHC took the available date to Q, he figured we would just chill, have a good time, joke around etc. Especially considering that our beloved handball has been tabled due to the recent Seattle type weather in our area. THIS IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED …

The Tension of “Hell Yeah” vs. The Obligation of Accountability (and a Backblast)

4 pax for XL at 0545.  8 pax for regular workout at 0630.  We lost a pax from XL to the regular session because his M had texted him with the command of “You woke them (the 2.0s and the dog) up when you left.  Get home.”  In the interest of marital harmony (i.e., not …

Prototypical WO at Depot

On Wednesday night, Coppertone advised that an FNG would likely be posting in the AM.  Not having drawn up my “routine” (as my M calls it), I decided to go the prototypical/classic workout route for Depot. The FNG didn’t show; nevertheless work was done.  Our pace/intensity increased as the workout went on.  It was sneaky …

The Much Needed Leg Day

So why is there a much needed leg day to this workout?? This is why: https://www.f3midlands.com/lake-murray-sc/ten-min-workout Thanks to Pothole’s Q dated 2/16/2018, every PAX of Depot had sever arm pain. 270 Merkins will do that to a person.

7 PAX ignored The Weather Channel’s warnings against frost. Said, “I don’t give a damn if my cheeks freeze and I pee yellow slushie!” And gave a hearty laugh at a mere 19 degrees. And they got better. Conditions: 19 degrees F. That’s 13 degrees colder than freezing. 56 degrees colder than where I’d rather …

The New Depot Thanksgiving Tradition: Flag Football & All of Its Awesomeness

About a week or so ago, YHC spied a blank space on the Q sheet for Thanksgiving.  Fearful there would be an AO closure, the blank was filled in with “Flag Football.”  22 pax responded to the Bat Signal and appeared at Depot at 0630 for some “No Rules, Just Right” Football.  As the title indicates, the …
