Stroll to the Beach

Stroll to the Beach

Workout Date:





Texas Ranger, ERC, Dramamine, BrownBag, Headgear (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: The Village

Conditions: 58 degrees, partly cloudy.

Weather was great!  Back to shorts for now.  YHC wasn’t sure what to expect at #TheVillage since Friday’s have been light and many in the PAX are DR and the possibility that some might be tired of another Headgear Q since YHC Q’d at #Bombsquad earlier in the week though it feels like weeks ago after celebrating Christmas Day.  However with Hulkmania on a semi-hiatus (better get that going again for the MB Marathon and P200 training) and most of the Village/BombSquad PAX missing their Wed and Thur workouts this week, YHC was hopeful. AOQ, Texas Ranger, was the first on scene followed by Dramamine, ERC and then Brown Bag rolling up as we began.

Mosey to the beach for some fresh ocean air and some  Titanics???  ERC found a football and a few PAX made a weak attempt to toss it around in the dark.  It was flat and the PAX had to get on the move quick to make it back in time anyway.

Prayers – BOM spoken and unspoken


YHC showed up with a plan, weinke and even a whiteboard.  Jump ropes were ready to go along with some special coupons.  As YHC rolled up to the AO, a desire to follow a previous Brown Bag Village Q with a run to the beach took hold.  YHC has run a 1/2 marathon with Texas Ranger and ERC, Brown Bag is fit as can be but YHC had only met Dramamine today so a  quick check with Dramamine and the other PAX after warmup to be sure the run would be okay and we were good to go so throw out the whiteboard and leave the ropes and special coupons.

The Burpee Monkey Humper Mile was inclusive of the PT from the whiteboard so wasn’t completely on the fly.  The PAX stuck together along the way, we were breathing hard, may be sore later and got to see the beach so YHC will call that a win!

Brown Bag was nursing a cold and YHC thought we might lose him but he led the PAX…now go home and get some rest.  Texas Ranger is on his 500th post this week alone and he was strong through this one.  ERC is always up for a good workout and breezed through!  Dramamine is only on his 3rd or 4th post and held his own pushing through strong.  Well Done!  Thanks for the trip to the beach!  It’s an honor to lead!
