75 & SUNNY

75 & SUNNY

Workout Date:





Pikachu, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: Catapult

Conditions: Warm & Sunny, 22 degrees

Yesterday YHC saw that the Q sheet was open for Catapult. So without hesitation, YHC signed up. As YHC perused the Q sheet he also spotted an open spot at Timeshare this week, too, so YHC took it! #LookOut!! YHC didn’t check the weather though until sometime later to discover that the unseasonal respite we have enjoyed was over and the mercury was projected to fall into the teens. That’s exciting!! Heck some F3Nation AOs across the fruited plain work out in sub-zero temps!! What better way to motivate oneself and others by enticing them to a workout that will be “75* and Sunny”, instead, of frigid & in the gloom. #PowerofPositiveThinking. YHC let all the PAX know via Twitter & Slack that Catapult would not be participating in the deep freeze and instead would be enjoying a summer Beatdown even if it only existed in our minds!

Now that our minds were right, YHC still needed to come up with a worthy Catapult Beatdown #NOBupees. With the phrase “75 & Sunny” firmly swirling around my fertile mind, YHC put pencil to paper and roughed out a Wienke  . . . Read on to enjoy what you have missed, unless you are named Pikachu because he was the only PAX brave enough to post in the Gloom which could mean only a few things: (1) He didn’t know that YHC was on Q; (2) His weather app is on the fritz; (3) He’s subconsciously avoiding working out at the Village until his Q; or more likely than not . .  .(4) He is a stone cold BEAST!!
