Lake Murray – Depot

14 PAX gathered on a balmy November morning for YHC’s 2nd Q in the last 2 weeks. The depth of YHC’s “well of ideas” was on full display via the rehashed IronPAX workout chosen for today’s beat down. Fortunately PAX were able to work through any lingering painful IronPAX memories by correcting my lax counting …

Depot Block Party

Conditions were perfect (mid 50’s and plenty of dew on the ground) for YHC’s return to where it all started.  Those hallowed grounds we around here call “Depot”.  A little disappointed no burpee train came through.  Is that still a thing? 25 Pax Showed up and we got to work COP: Disclaimer etc etc SSH …

Arrears Cumpleaños Q

CONDITIONS/FORESKIN Lower 70’s temperature, high humidity, and even some fog this morning after the thunderstorms last night.  Given the excitement of today’s mystery Q, the PAX were excited and undeterred by the 0615 start, humidity, and soggy field conditions.  They were hopeful; however, that whoever was Q, he would as Benjamin Buford Blue liked to …

Four Quarters of Fun

Still feeling reinvigorated from the State of Depot Post that Pothole put forth the night before, YHC rolled into Depot ready to put in some work.  7 other pax showed up, one of whom hadn’t posted in quite a while (Kotters to Moonshine).  Moonshine let it be known that Pothole’s post was his reason for …

The State of Depot

Greetings, Depot. There are 39 members of the Twitter Depot chat. There is an average of 12 PAX attending workouts over the last several months. There’s something wrong with these numbers. Let me start off by describing a moment. A moment that, for some of us, was several years ago; and for others, not so …

Bellhop Returns for “Pothole’s Murderous Mile” a/k/a Suicide Lightpoles

After a lengthy bootcamp hiatus this spring, Bellhop returns to the gloom in earnest to pick back up.  Many thanks to those who texted, called, or emailed during this time.  A lot has been going on at work (and unfortunately still is); however, YHC is resolved to resume training and getting better with his pax …

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 …
