Brick Yard VQ: A little cool ootside in the gloom, eh?!

Fitting weather for YHC’s Can-AM  inaugural VQ at the Brick Yard Monday morning. A little taste of a Canadian summer heat wave….you could almost smell the maple syrup and poutine in the air. A great turnout for the Brick Yard, 17 PAX including several from the 4:30 rucking crowd. Don't know if that's a record, but the largest Brickyard group YHC has seen.

The Temple  "Whaaat!? I thought Temple was on Wednesday" (Tater Salad)

YHC stole shamelessly from Barfly's VQ playbook last week, but with a little twist. Partner A runs with a sandbag across the parking lot, does 20 squats with bag, 20 merkins and 20 LBC's and runs back with the sandbag, while Partner B does curls, presses, bend over rowing, etc with the block. Sandbag makes it kinda like running uphill both ways. Switch and repeat completing 19, 18, 17, etc reps until time is called at 20 minutes.

Only 4 PAX showed for the Woodland 30 minutes of hell. Guess the rest were saving their legs for Bowtie's Kalmia Gardens Convergence extravaganza on Thursday. Kudos to Hillbilly who was an FNG a mere 2 days ago and conquered the hill!

The Thang: Start at the top with 20 air squats, 20 merkins, 20 LBC's, dodge the traffic across Home Ave ( where is everyone going at 5:30 am?) run to the bottom of the hill, do 19 of each, run to the top of the hill, do 18,18,18, etc repeat counting down to zero (ha!) or until your legs fall off or when 30 minutes are up. Contemplate your decision to do Temple instead of Bojangles.

This is way more fun when the street lights are out!

Hillbilly closed with prayer.
