YHC wasn’t showing up to hear excuses of “I can’t run X without stopping. My hip hurts. My arm is sore. My Vee is sandy.” Please. Oh shut the hell up. You’re here aren’t you? Put forth some effort for a change. Suck it up buttercup.

Nice crowd too. Better than the man with perfect hair from across the river got. I think. Midoriyama math says I had more PAX in attendance. The REAL Manly Men Gaston County morning workout AO is FOLSOM. All bad asses. All the time. Beards and trucks not required. Wanna fight about it? Don’t cherry pick your AO and then cry about what exercises get called when a Folsom guy Q shows up.

Enough with the bull. Time for the horns.

Start off with SSH in cadence of course. YHC demonstrated proper form. Full arm extension overhead claps with hip slap on thighs. Legs spread wider than a ho in Olongapo. Mostly everyone did proper reps .

Indian Run. Kudos to Stogie, Beetle Bailey & Ozark for being my object lessons this morning. Run to the stop sign by the prison. Non-stop. Whole way and back. Everyone does a burpee or more each time we caught the group. Took less time than anticipated. Batflippers.

Back at the tennis courts. 6 LBCS. Then crab walk to next spot between each court. 7 LBCS. Crab walk. 8 LBCS. Continue pattern to end of courts. Touch fence. Run back to start and plank for the six. It was YHC. FWIW, I suck at crab walk.

Next round, 6 Merkins. Then bear crawl to next spot between the courts. 7 Merkins. BTW, I suck at bear crawl too.

Mosey back to flag. Couple rounds of LBCS, Oblique crunches, both legs. More LBCS. Flutters. All 50 reps in cadence. Pledge. Hillbillies till time ran out.

Prayer requests: Striper’s brother. MW friend’s marriage. Sarlacc daughter. Achy Breaky uncle. SA’s daughter. Bedpan’s family’s baby. Huck. Turtleman.

Announcements: JJ5K Saturday. Extinction run. Amoeba ruck. CSAUP. Christmastown 5K. Speed for Need.
Need runners to fill Palmetto 200. Sign up. If you can do a bootcamp workout, you can run three 5K with a 10 hour break between them. No excuses. If YHC 62 year old ass can do it, what’s your excuse?

Good to see the old Folsom stomping grounds again, thanks to Balljoint for allowing me to Q.
