Raining Route 66/72

Date: 3/12/2018

Put my name on the sheet last week, by doing so, i think i gauranteed the rain.

Conditions: Light Misting Rain, 54 degrees, UnPleasant

PAX: Swason, Harvey Updyke, Chumbucket, Judge Judy, Dabo(QIC)

Flag was left in the dry comfort of the truck, as the Q did not want to disrespect the shovel, nor Old Glory.


Warm up (Under the Bus Drop off awning):

All – IC

  • SSH x 30
  • TTT x 15
  • AC – F x 15 // B x 15

The Rain has lightened up, lets mosey,


Quick Mosey to Church of the Cross

Lt. Dan

  • 1 squat/4 lunges; repeat and increase to 10 squats/40 lunges

Plenty of Mumble chatter, including a discussion of when best to eat pizza and beer over the past weekend – the Swanson method seemed the most logical:

  •  Judy negated some of the caloric intake by running 8+ miles before indulging in Beer and Pizza. Judy was complaining of sore legs and feeling bloated.
  • Swanson, indulged in beer and pizza without running at all and felt great!

Sell Signs for P200
Encourage PAX to show up when the weather is not perfect.


“Route 66” workout is really supposed to increase by increments of 1 and go for 11 blocks for a total count of 66. Judy had questioned YHC about the 66 as our total count was 72 Burpees. #sincewhenisjudyworriedaboutmath? #thatisonlyalegit?forurkel

YHC has posted plenty of times(200+) in the past 2.5 years. Amazingly, fewer than 4 have ever had rain.

Judy requested coffee via Twtter, YHC did not comply.

Swanson though about breaking ranks during the indian run, but then stuck with it – good work! YHC had promised Swanson some P200 training.

Consecutive Post #~60 for Chumbucket, might need to consider a name change to Cal Ripkin #2131.

Harvey Stopped smiling(Briefly) during Lt. Dan.

Day Light Savings Time making getting up hurt a little bit extra, only to be compounded by rain, But as always, YHC has never regretted posting, regret has only  come from missing the workout.
