Wish You Were Here

Workout Date:





BeefSteak, Cross Stitch, Doughboy, Ms. Doubtfire, E-R-Sizzle, Hamburglar, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: BombSquad

Conditions: 48 degrees, perfect

Got a text from Humpback a few days ago asking if I could switch Q’s with him. He would take my Catapult Q on Tuesday if I could take today’s Q at BombSquad.  After much deliberation (about 2 minutes), I let The Camel know that I would not only take today’s Q, but he did not have to go tit-for-tat & take my Tuesday Q at Catapult. After all, I was really lookin forward to The Catapult since I haven’t Q’ed there in many moons. So I got my mind right to Q BombSquad & Catapult back to back.

When I arrived at the AO, Beefsteak & Mrs Doubtfire were moving about by the Shovel Flag, then I saw CrossStitch emerge from the shadows, & as I stepped out of my ride, I was pleasantly surprised to see Hamburglar entering the Gloom, too. (He’s been nursing a nagging foot injury which really sucks because we all need his energy & presences at the beatdowns). ERC arrived on time as YHC announced the 1 minute warning. Rounding out our merry band of Pax was Doughboy, whose been consistently posting since his FNG debut. As Hamburglar & I walked to the shovel flag he let me know that he got a shout out from Humpback last night and assumed that he was Qing. I was a bit hurt by this revelation and had to wipe the slightest of slight tears from my eye.

I thought alot about this Q & didn’t want to just rinse and repeat yesterday’s beatdown so I brought back some timeless classic routines that would not only work our upper bodies but also put a fire in our legs.

Read on to see if you could have survived the following beatdown & if you answer is “Yes” (and it better be!!) then ask yourself why you didn’t post today, and finally make the commitment to post next time. Do it for yourself and do it for your fellow Pax who miss you and appreciate you.
