Dead Battery

Dead Battery

Workout Date:





BrownBag(R), Spork, Weasel, Headgear (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: The Village

Conditions: 62 degrees.  Wet from overnight storms.  Windy.

Had a chance to post at #Thunder in Columbia yesterday and got a good beatdown in.  Chyna was on Q and last time he was at #Warthog I happened to be on Q and put up a pretty intense workout so it was his turn.  He didn’t disappoint and as I got home I thought I might replicate his Q at The Village but then came up with some other ideas and filled my truck with goodies for the morning.  As morning rolled around, I was so sore I could hardly get out of bed or walk, so I wasn’t about to do the same thing again!  Rolled up to the AO at 0500 and set up shop.  I went to check out the playground and came back out to see our Nant’an, BrownBag, roll up.  Since he’s usually a right on time guy, I should have known that it was about time to start.  Then Spork rolls up and I realized it is go time.   Just as we got going, Weasel shows up too.  4 is good!  Let’s go!

Knowing that Village Fridays can be hit or miss now that Hulkamania is up and running, I wasn’t sure what to expect numbers wise.  After getting a text early this AM that TR is sick and wouldn’t make it, I thought I might be on my own so having BrownBag, Spork and Weasel all show was great!  These guys can all get after it so I wasn’t worried about the beatdown I had planned and even threw that Mini-Murph in at the last minute.   I always seem to forget my music when I come to The Village so it was a good thing BrownBag showed up.  He missed a few reps trying to get the music going only to find out the speaker battery was dead so no music today.   None the less, the music less PAX got after it and crushed it today!

It is always an honor to lead these HIM!
