  • AO: Downtown
  • QIC: Flintstone
  • FNG's:
  • PAX: Wirenut, EZ Rider, Purple Haze (R), Linus (R), Folgers (R), Waterboy, Cougar, Slaw

A strong mix of regions at Downtown, with 9 men putting in strong work.  Burpees were done for trains that weren’t there, and the distance from the parking lot to the flag got a whole lot longer.  No frogs were squished in the execution of this bootcamp.

The Thang:

  • 10 x SSH (IC)

At this time, Purple Haze and Wirenut joined us, so we blessed them with

  • 10 x Monkey Hummers (IC)

Then on to

  • 10 x Hillbilly Walkers (IC)
  • 10 x Freddie Mercuries (IC)
  • 10 x Mountain Climbers (IC)
  • 10 x Mike Tysons (IC)

Pledge and Mosey to South & Second for

  • 5 Burpees (OYO)

Since the Sizzle Suicide is such a hit at The Goat, YHC brought it to a new crowd at a different AO.  We ran suicides up South with between Second and Franklin with telephone poles as the mark, stopping for LBC’s along the way as follows:

  • Run 1 pole – 10 LBCs
  • Run back – 10 LBCs
  • Run 2 poles – 20 LBCs
  • Run back – 20 LBCs
  • Run 3 poles – 30 LBCs
  • Run Back – 30 LBCs
  • Run 4 poles – 40 LBCs

During the last run, a truck turned down South and our game of Frogger got a little dicey, but a countoff afterwards confirmed that we were all accounted for.

We moseyed from Franklin back to the parking lot side of the Gaston County Administration Building, where a train inspired another round of

  • 5 Burpees (OYO)

And then we started a workout that probably already has a name, but YHC doesn’t know it, so we called it the Cyclone Stacker.  It went something like this:

  • 5 Burpees
  • Run a lap around the building
  • 10 Squats, 5 Burpees
  • Run a lap around the building
  • 15 Crunchy Frogs, 10 Squats, 5 Burpees
  • Run a lap
  • 20 Pseudo Planche Merkins, 15 Crunchy Frogs, 10 Squats, 5 Burpees
  • Run a lap
  • 15 Crunchy Frogs, 10 Squats, 5 Burpees
  • Lap
  • 10 Squats, 5 Burpees
  • Lap
  • 5 Burpees
  • Lap

HIPAA told me about the Pseudo Planche Merkins while I was prepping for a different Q a while back and I thought this was a good spot to bring them out.  The PAX disagreed, and there was a good amount of modifying.  They’re really not as bad as you’d think.  They’ll probably make a return to the Weinke in the near future.

Inside of 10 minutes to go, and looking for for some lunge work without a lot of instructions, YHC omahaed to a simple instruction

  • Lunge Walk back to the flags

On a Downtown post years ago, Whoopee had us lunging all over that parking lot, so I knew it’d been done before, and then some.  In the end, it seemed like the right amount – exhausting with the need to shake the legs out a couple times, but not impossible.

We were back at the flag with a couple minutes to spare, so it was time for some Mary that went down like this:

  • 20 x Mountain Climbers (IC – Wirenut)
  • 20 x Flutter Kicks with Arms Back (IC – EZ Rider)
  • 20 x American Hammers (IC – Purple Haze)
  • 10 x Crab Crunches (IC – Linus)
  • 20 x SSH (IC – Folgers)

Folgers wrapped up the SSH and the clock ticked 6:15.


  • P200 & Mortimer upcoming
  • Doodles put out a call for runners to join the P70 which is the last 70 miles of the P200.  Still need 1 more as of these announcements
  • Round Up and Hacksaw running 50 miles in 24 hours
  • Sparky is working on registrations for a Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters conference March 19-21 (same week as Mortimer & P200)
  • Linus has the Q next week at Downtown

Prayer Requests:

  • F3 Tick Tock’s family
  • Sister Act’s family
  • The Burr family (from EZ Rider’s church)
  • Gold Digger, Broke, Lil Nugget and family
  • Healing for our country
  • Blart’s M with some medical tests
  • Cougar’s grandma
  • Westside’s grandma


Keep up the daily push to be better men, husbands, fathers and community leaders.  Proud to be a part of the PAX.
