Since we talked about it at the CTF Ruck and posted on Slack this week, everyone has a lot of questions. What is Burpee Wiffle Ball? How many burpees do you do if you strike out? How many burpees for a single? Double? Triple? HOME RUN? And what, exactly, are liquid refreshments? If you wantContinue reading “4th of July PB: What is Burpee Wiffle Ball?”
Wasn’t sure what to expect this morning. I was competing against Bob Ross at North, who would pull the usual Poshies, and Diablo at Vets, who would pull everyone else. To my surprise, 16 new and veteran Poshies showed up this morning. If you don’t read anymore, know this: we had a few 6’s today.Continue reading “I love this group. BB from the Incubator 7/1.”
Fresh from the beach and a morning ruck, and I haven’t Q’d Posh in a long time. Tomorrow morning will be fun. Be at the Incubator. 0530. SYITG.
Putting out a Saturday night Slack call for a Sunday morning ruck doesn’t always work. This time, we pulled in Iceman and Yogi. But Yogi had to work, so we only got him for the first half. PAX: Retainer, Iceman, Yogi Rucked 6.75 miles at Posh in just under 1:45. Good morning, fellas.

I haven’t posted at St. Pat’s yet, but I’ve been told it’s the best. So I’m pulling out what I think is the hardest weinke that I’ve ever Q’d, to see if I can impress the PAX (and maybe get invited to their Slack channel). O530 in the Garden. SYITG.
Great morning at Pleasantville. I’ve Q’d 30 PAX before. I’ve never Q’d 3. I think the lower the number, the harder the Q and the harder the workout. Can’t cheat numbers on your merkins. PAX: Jitterbug (R), Milton, Retainer (QIC) Started with the COP, calf raises, SSH’s, GG’s, planking and runners stretches. Thang One: NAContinue reading “BB from the Ville 6/7”
Friday morning will be easy. No running. No merkins. No box jumps. Just a nice stroll through Pleasantville. Come out and join me. 0530. Norton Commons Amphitheater. SYITG.
Last year, I took a chance by responding to one of Diablo’s Facebook posts and showing up for a workout at 5:30 in the freaking morning at the Parklands. I didn’t know anyone that was there. Even though I’d just finished my first half-marathon, I was still overweight and couldn’t keep up with any ofContinue reading “Retainer-versary Preblast at the Bridge”

PAX: Ladybird (R), Aerobie (R), Wapner, Mr. Kotter, PK, Retainer (QIC). Great morning today, including this nugget of wisdom from Aerobie.

With the combinationContinue reading “4/6 Fog BB”
PAX and Q’s: PK and Retainer. Title says it all. Great F2 during the F1, including a long discussion that made Retainer change the name of his “twosies” to “PK’s.” PK is running the Derby mini-marathon. Congrats PK! He’s a beast that never ran longer than three miles until this month, and he justContinue reading “4/6 PK/Retainer BO 7-Miler”
QIC: Alexa/Retainer PAX: Snowman, Fanny Pack, McAfee, Trojan (DR), Myagi, Meter Maid Just a quick reminder here: when rucking with McAfee in the early hours of the morning, be sure to stay in front of him.

QIC: Retainer PAX: PK and Abacus Abacus rallied the PAX with a shoutout to run 30 miles on Saturday morning. PK and Retainer were not feeling the full distance, so we split up for different paths.
