QIC: Dr. Evil

15 Loyal Pax assembled in the perfect weather to see what the pre-blast was all about.  Certainly there would not be Hills, right??  He was just joking….

Mosey to the upper parking lot


  • SSH’s, 25 IC, BWS (much mumblechatter about needing the Friday Q with this taking so long….have to keep Pacer away from Sludge…)
  • Abe Vigodas, 15 IC
  • Plank Jacks, 20 IC
  • Parker Peters, 20 IC

Mosey to the hills, Part I

Partner up

  • Both start at the bottom of the hill
  • Partner 1, Run to top of hill and do merkins, 15 each time YHC and Flo Rida in similar speed on the merkins…can’t keep Flo Rida out of my head “straighten your arms at the top….”  Nice work by Fanny Pack on the merkins–so much improvement from Day 1!
  • Partner 2, Complete as many burpees as possible

End result, 70 burpees for the pair, unlimited merkins–Tarde conceded that his heart rate had exceeded his normal resting HR…Fortran offered some mumblechatter on the exercise choices…Deliverance even seemed to sweat a bit on this one…

Keep your Partner, Mosey to the next hills–but no long runs as promised on day 1 to Flounder who has probably logged 20+ miles at our “low run” workouts at Ivey Redmon

  • Both start at the bottom of the hill
  • Partner 1, Crawl Bear to the top of the hill and do wide merkins, 15 each time–the Crawl Bear up the hill was provided by a couple of ladies who do boot camp at the Y…not to be outdone, but Gilmore took exception…
  • Partner 2, Prisoner Get Ups, as many as possible

End result, 70 Prisoner Get Ups, unlimited wide merkins

Parking Lot, everyone find a pair of lines

  • 7’s, like this:  Carolina Dry docks on one line, side shuffle to second line, release merkins–Kay is doing some break dance move between the lines, and there’s always a chance of a Tramp Stamp sighting…

Bonus Round!  (Nice Job, Everyone, Blew through the above way faster than YHC expected!)

Reward?  Elevens at the Hill:  No Hand Groiners at the bottom, Starman at the top

Something wasn’t working–Epstein and Sprinkler were carrying on a conversation during the Elevens and the Q couldn’t breathe….

We conveniently would ask Hardy “what number are you on?” just as he was finishing….


  • Box cutters, 20 IC
  • Slow Low Flutters, 20 IC, BWS–or just lay there, according to Sludge and Pacer, who noticed a marked lack of participation by, oh, 7….
  • Pretzel Crunches, 20 IC, Reverso
  • American Hammers, 35 IC


  • Sign up for Kay’s Weekend at Bernie’s
  • NewStory, good turnout of about 275 guests
  • Praise for Maggie, Dean’s 2.0, Follow up information in the morning
  • Maggie, Sophie, Tyler
  • BRR participants this weekend, their safety and experience
  • Premature Evacuation by Sludge and Sprinkler (together?)

Always an honor,

Dr. Evil
