BB 5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q

I was glad that Meter Maid asked me to Q a Foundry Workout.  It has been way too long and the time was right.  I was getting a little lazy with certain things going in my life i.e. not being the best person that I could be, not putting out my best effort, etc.  WhenContinue reading “BB 5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q”

5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q

Now that my running season has taken a slight pause, I am eager to get back out to the Foundry to lead a hard, yet effective strengthening routine. This one will be a grinder, but relatively joint-friendly i.e. non-running. That does not mean easy! Come on out and enjoy the comfortable temps in the morning!Continue reading “5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q”

BB 2-3-2021 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q

It seems like it rains every Thursday at the Agony!  Despite the rain, 4 HIMs braved an annoying light rain and got some good, up temp work accomplished.   We also learned that the Beatles first hit “ I want to hold your hand” was recorded on this date in 1964.   Thus, the Beatles was theContinue reading “BB 2-3-2021 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q”

BB 12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss

Who does not love the day before Christmas? Being off work, enjoying the time with friends and family, etc. all add to the eager anticipation of Christmas, the day our savior came into the world. The weather was un-Christmas-like, but who could complain with 50 degree temperatures! I am not sure if the HIMs whoContinue reading “BB 12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss”

12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss

Santa will be swooping into the Abyss tomorrow morning as he makes his trip around the globe. He plans to bring some mad beats so that can make room for all the treats that you will eat over the next week (or day). Speaking of treats, there will be doughnuts and coffee after. Trust me,Continue reading “12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss”

Back-Blast: The Agony at the County – 11.11.2021 – Little Jerry Veteran’s Day Q

 Wherever you were for this morning’s post on this Veterans Day, you were not the timid, you were a man in the arena.  We ended with this favorite quote of mine from Teddy Roosevelt… “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or whereContinue reading “Back-Blast: The Agony at the County – 11.11.2021 – Little Jerry Veteran’s Day Q”

BB 9/22/21 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q

I have not been to the Foundry in awhile …. And now I know why I miss it.  I love the heavy workouts and they are ones that you can do anywhere.  What’s even better is when you have few good HIMs who can join you for a beatdown!  This week must be monsoon weekContinue reading “BB 9/22/21 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q”

PB 9-9-21 Iron Pax Week 1 The Agony (at the County)

Rabbit hunting starts (and hopefully ends) tomorrow. Bring coupons and gloves. We will be on the green space. We will do a brief warm-up to allow for time for the workout. (My guess is that it may go past 6:15). If you need more time to warm-up, then get there a bit earlier. This mightContinue reading “PB 9-9-21 Iron Pax Week 1 The Agony (at the County)”

No coupons, but there will be copious amounts of Merkins and Running (about 3.25 miles of running if doing the non-modified version). I will have the workouts (modified and non-modified versions) on theContinue reading “PB 9/2/2021 Iron Pax Week 0 – The Agony at the County”

BB 8/26/21 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q

Installment #4 of Q School week at the Agony turned out to be an adventure around the County.  Temps were a bit tepid but bearable (and even if they were not, we would have managed because that’s what we do – rain or shine, hot or cold – “it don’t matter”).  We called the time,Continue reading “BB 8/26/21 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q”

PB – 08.26.2021 – DeVitto – Q School at the Agony

Day #4 of Q School Week at the County. Weather: A balmy 72 with low humidity and 0% rain which will be much different than last Thursday! We will walk through the SOP for a well-oiled Q.

BB 5.27.2021 DeVitto Q The Agony at the County

The Agony was a bit eery this morning.   It kind of reminded one of an old Friday the 13th type movie with the fog and dampness.  One thing was sure – the humidity was in full effect.  This was going to be a sweat-fest.   HIMs that took part …. Scratch and Dent Ashley  AsianContinue reading “BB 5.27.2021 DeVitto Q The Agony at the County”

PB 5-27-21 DeVitto Q – The Agony at the County

Roll-out to the County for a run heavy, core strengthening routine manana. We might play King of the Hill for a warm-up (he, he). Might be a good way to stretch those legs after the Holy Roller beatdown from the Heavy. Maybe a bit of rain but you will be drenched any way. Hyped forContinue reading “PB 5-27-21 DeVitto Q – The Agony at the County”

5.17.2021 BB The Minuteman at the Patriot

This was my debut at the Patriot. What better way to start out than leading a workout at a place where you have not been. I heard great things about the uniqueness of this site and it did not disappoint. The scene was set with the flag already placed by Focker prior to his departureContinue reading “5.17.2021 BB The Minuteman at the Patriot”

BB – 4/27/2021 – The Planetarium at the Boondocks

I have not been to the Boondocks. However, I gotta say that the birds seem to chirp louder, the stars appear to shine brighter and the moon appeared to be quite majestic! (It was a full moon, btw). It certainly is my 2nd favorite AO behind the County 🙂 Suffice to say, it was aContinue reading “BB – 4/27/2021 – The Planetarium at the Boondocks”

Pre-Blast -4/27/2021- The Planetarium at the Boondocks – DeVitto Q

Derby week is finally here! Next to Christmas, it could be the best week in the year. Azaleas blooming, birds singing, stars shining, etc. It should be a great morning to see the stars at the Planetarium and weather will be pristine. We will move for 40 minutes. We will do some running – AYPContinue reading “Pre-Blast -4/27/2021- The Planetarium at the Boondocks – DeVitto Q”

Back-blast 4-14-2021 DeVitto Q at the Foundry

11 fine HIMs came out in the misty morning for a nice, little heavy beatdown. I love the HEAVY as it is great change-up into a more strengthening sort of session with a touch of cardio. We started out with the usual disclaimers, did a head-count, and got into COP which included the following: Side-straddleContinue reading “Back-blast 4-14-2021 DeVitto Q at the Foundry”
