The Thang:

YHC was going on vacation to the sunny Garden City, and saw that the good men of the Grandstrand was eager to allow visitors the opportunity to Q a workout.  Seeing that there was an opening On Saturday YHC signed up with great enthusiasm.   That was most likely the last smart decision made on journey.  You decide.

Mistake #1 – YHC did not want the studs of Warthog to think the men in Lexington was a bunch of fat and nasties, so YHC used a workout that was sure to be crazy hard.  Crazy hard for the Pax also means crazy hard for the Q.

Mistake #2 – YHC correctly predicted that the week of sun, and swimming, and occasional adult beverage, remembering a complicated weinke would be difficult.  The best way to combat this evil is to keep the workout to a maximum of one exercise.  Unfortunately the same forces that would make a diffucult weinke hard also made a simple workout hard.

Mistake #3 – Not knowing the lay of the land, YHC got there early and set up SEVEN stations in what was later determined was a goose poop and water flooded field.  Lambardi, in an of kindness suggested we move to the dry parking lot.  However for convenience, YHC used the TEN marks on the parking lot.  The extra three stations proved to be a horrible choice.

THE THANG

move from station 1 to station 10 & back down to station 1 – at each station do that number of burpees (total 100)

move from station 1 to station 9 & back down to station 1 – at each station do that number of burpees (total 81)

move from station 1 to station 8 & back down to station 1 – at each station do that number of burpees (total 60)

See where YHC was trying to go – had we finished we would have done 375 burpees and was totally stupid.  The extra 3 stations was on the scale of stupid as North Korea starting a nuclear war stupid.

Somewhere along this journey, YHC’s body started to tell his brain what he should have already known.  YHC was not going to make 375.  So somewhere along the line we switched over to merkins.  The PAX may or may not have said, “that it was about time this guy caught a clue.”

We finished up with a COT and YHC was given a pop quiz.  Despite reading “Freed to Lead” during vacation, YHC was so oxygen deprived  he stumbled over all of his answers and the pax had to help out again.  Was also asked to do 34 burpees in remembrance of a fallen brother.  Thankfully the other PAX was willing to help out the cupcake Q.  Out of politeness or a silent desire that he is never Q again, the PAX gave YHC a patch.

All kidding aside, you know you have something special when you a leading a workout in a different town where you do not know anyone, and you feel just as at home as you would in your hometown.  Thank you and God Bless.
