It’s Better Than Doing Nothing 😊

It’s Better Than Doing Nothing 😊

Workout Date:





1st Base, Pikachu, O’Doules, Single Barrel. Sawdust, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:


AO: Catapult

Conditions: 47 degrees, calm, dry

YHC was the 1st to arrive and as I took a lap around the AO, I thought about putting out some cones 50 yrds apart just to mess with the guys. Afterall the key to today’s beatdown was to keep the PAX guessing what was next. No one could mentally prepare for the next rep or the next exercise because there was no theme, no pattern, & no clues. No one knew what might happen, including YHC!!

The only thing for certain is that everyone would be pushed to get better, oh yeah & Harry Rockets! You’re not at the Catapult unless the beatdown begins with Harry Rockets!!

As Pikachu planted the Shovel Flag, YHC & O’Doules sauntered towards the middle of the parking lot enjoying the balmy weather, which was a far cry from yesterday’s temperatures. Next to arrive was 1st Base lookin’ lean & mean. Then Sawdust entered the COP and finally after mauling around on the outer fringe, Single Barrel entered the circle. Another minute passed with no newcomers and it was time to light this fuse!
