Lexington – Detention

Hurt Pearls

A baker’s dozen at Detention this AM.  A last-minute opening on the Q Sheet made room for YHC’s Robbie Miller-inspired String of Pearls WOD. So here’s what it did: Welcome, Disclaimer, and BOM Weather: Mid-50’s and gloomy COP: -SSH X 20 IC -5 Burpees OYO -SSH X 15 IC -4 Burpees OYO -SSH X 10 …

10/30 Special

It’s true that there are days when the key to our success lies in well-laid plans, but today was not one of those days. 5 PAX came out for bonus miles, and 13 more showed up to see what fun would unfurl afterwards. Here’s how it all went. Mosey – circle up Burpee x 10 …

The Burpee Ladder

YHC has been mulling this thing called the Burpee Ladder. While the Pax have seen different versions of ladders provided by various Q’s, YHC has not seen this one. YHC loves the Detainees, and the Detainees had a lot to say this morning, so let us recap the festivities: Weather: 46 and perfect Disclamer/No FNGs/Prayer …

Catfish Theory

Ten PAX at the school yard this morning for some catfish theory – gettin’ after those sardines, that is…  YHC has been absent for a month, thanks to a few catfish of his own; but when that Q spot showed as open, it was time to get back in the tank. So here’s what it …

VQ from Caravan

Editor’s Note: #TClaps to Caravan for bringing a strong VQ that completely eliminated all chances for mumblechatter.  Rumor has it that he also ate breakfast before he came out!!  Here’s how it went down: WEATHER 70 and more humid that we’d have guessed STRIDELITE 7 PAX total to take on Big Timber DISCLAIMER/PRAYER WARM UP …

Where y’all been at?!

Two months gone.  Two months since my last Detention Q.  Been really disconnected from the Gloom, you guys.  Travelling for work going on 5 weeks in a row; so any time I’m home I’m either catching up on paperwork or enjoying the new (yes, new) Netflix subscription with the wife.  That stuff is poison but …

Buckets of Fun

YHC was recently disappointed to learn that our current society is generally unaware of the “There’s a Hole in my Bucket” song. Lucky for the Detention PAX, May 30 has been officially deemed “There’s a Hole in my Bucket Day,” so the 6 of us took it on ourselves to raise awareness and improve family …

Drag a Block

YHC saw a request the other week from the Detention shovel flag seeking to fill the Q sheet. Having never been to Detention, but knowing some of the pax that call this place home, YHC was happy to oblige. The pax did not disappoint as work was done and mumblechatter was a plenty. A word …

But These go to Eleven

Four PAX clocked in at the school yard this morning.  YHC began with the disclaimer and confirmation that none present were running the 2019 P200.  And so began our training for the 2020 P200 three-man team (two even started early w/ Stridelite). IT’S LEG DAY, BABY! Elevens-style. Welcome, Disclaimer, and BOM Weather: 45 and right …

The Detainees get a taste of beers (on the wall… with some abs… in the cold)

Yesterday I checked the Q sheet for open slots and came across an opening at Detention for today (and Tomahawk on Thursday).  So I figured I’d sign up and make a trip over to visit the Detainees.  We had 4 PAX for a 3 mile SL and made it through the very slight cold drizzle okay.  Shoes …

Pound Sand, Y’all

Chilly in the school yard today.  But once we got moving with some mindless, conversational labor, turns out it wasn’t so bad and we even got some work done.  4 Detention faithful put in some manual labor makin small rocks at the bottom of the hill into small rocks at the top of the hill …

Return to the Detention

Typed this one out on the phone while flying back from the National Championship game.  Girl sitting next to me creeped me the whole time I was typing it out.  She finally asked, what are you typing out?  I said Detention’s bootcamp workout for tomorrow morning.  Got another funny look…..went down each exercise and shared …

Tires Scared ‘Em Away

Led the men of Detention this morning in a fun AMRAP course around the backyard of the schoolhouse.  Even had a special visit from Blind Side, good to see him! After some talk of tires being used, only six of us were brave enough to show. Weather: nice, there was a breeze Disclaimer Prayer Mosey …

Lunch Pail Press

BRR is coming and a few teammates would be at Detention, so the workout had to go easy on the legs.  So we continued the #Fillthesleeves theme and got our pump on (H4T may be pumping during lunch while at work in his new rest area).
