Workout Date:

The Thang:

YHC was initially planning a run heavy Beatdown due to HotTub’s HC Thurday at Regional Track Meet, however, on Friday Rousey started hyping the beatdown on the twittersphere. For those who are unaware Rousey (due to knee issues) is no runner. So what’s a Q to do?? On top of 2 HC at different ends of the spectrum, Sunshine let me know that he would be bringing an FNG! The plot thickens! Oh, yeah shortly after the Beatdown, the Ground Zero Dragonboat races would begin, therefore the Beatdown would need to work the PAX hard but only have negligible effects on our rowing arms. The margin of error to find the perfect Beatdown was minimal; could YHC meet all PAX expectations & find the “Sweet Spot” . . . only time would tell. YHC also had a secondary issues to address as well; apparently some PAX feel that YHC is an angry Q, however,  nothing could be further from the truth! I’m just a happy, lovable, little fuzzball who is honored to lead!

YHC arrived early at the AO,planted the Shovel Flag, set up numerous cones,  and mosey’d to the coupon pile to find some inspiration.  As I rummaged through tractor tires, cinder blocks, and various lengths of telephone poles I found what I was looking for . . . a pallet tied to shoulder harness! As I began pulling out the pallet, a white SUV pulled into Large Parking Lot, this must be Sunshine’s FNG!  I did not want our FNG to leave that AO, so I dropped the pallet (#maybenexttime) and hustled out to meet him! Indeed it was our FNG,  introductions were made and I directed him to the Shovel Flag. Next to arrive was Rousey, followed by Sunshine and Goldberg. Then came Buffett and finally El Red Cardo!
