Pax: Counterfeit, 10K, Rimz
Q: Billy Goat

Baby, it was cold outside for a late November workout at The Armory. YHC’s VQ on the site started with a warmarama run, SSH, GM, Imperial Walkers, Hill Billys, and Mountain Climbers. Fresh coupons were distributed for a round of upper body (10 Shoulder Press, 10 Curls, and 10 Tricep Extensions, all in cadence) followed by a 2 round repeato at 5 reps of each in cadence with a suicide run in betwixt.

Catch Me If You Can was next up with one partner performing a Farmer Carry while the other ran between the same light pole markers as the previous round. The Pax flap-jacked after both light after a full start-to-finish-to-start leg was completed. Cold fingers were rejuvenated via an overhead clap call before moving to legs. Ten goblet squats, 10 static lunges (right), 10 static lunges (left), 7 single leg Romanian deadlifts (left, then right), and 15 block swings were executed with a similar suicide run for 2 full sets.

The blocks were stored under the bridge to the ball fields for future use and the Pax closed with 7 Minutes of Mary (American Hammers, LBCs, CBLs, WW2, Homer to Marge, various planks, and Merkins).

Six AOs (counting Max Bandwidth and The Clarion, not shown below) now feature on-site coupons for more workout options (cached at the “F3” on the map). Beware of the cold (not recommended during workouts with temps below freezing) and be sure to offer modifications for 2.0s and IR.

Christmas events at the Farm (Dirty Santa on Sat), Rollesville (parade on Sun), and Fellowship Luncheon at Tlaquepaque (15-Dec).

Prayers for Teresa (friend of Counterfeit) whose father is being called home and Rimz friend Courtney undergoing radiation treatments this week for a tumor near the eye.

Good push, men!
