Goodbye 2021, Hello 2022

AO: Norseman

When: 12/28/2021

QIC: Stroller

PAX (10): Bottom Bunk, Dr. Rico, Ha-ha, Ivy League, Pumba, Saint2O, Stroller, Stu, TO, Untouchable


When Ha-ha posted last week that Norseman needed Qs to close out the year, YHC decided that his 2-year streak of Qing at the Norseman shall not end. Now it’s 3 years and a real thing. After MT last week and YHC this week, maybe the Norsemen will fill up their Q sheet in 2022…

10 strong at 0530, but no sign of Nacho Libre. Oh yeah, it was also the debut of YHC’s new ruck plate carrier.


Mosey to the parking lot on the right. Wow, this plate carrier sucks already. Anyway. In cadence,

  • Imperial Walker x 15
  • Weedpicker x 12 (for the old guys)
  • Copperhead Squat x 15

On to the newly re-planted (re-placed?) turf field.

The Thang:

Thang 1: Red Barchetta

Straight from the Exicon:

Designed to get the heart rate up, much like the song by Rush of the same name

After each exercise, run back and wait for the six.

Run 100 yds, 100 SSH

Run 75 yds, 75 Mountain Climbers

Run 50 yds, 50 LBCs

Run 25 yds, 25 Mercans

Run 10 yds, 10 Burpees

Thang 2: 20-21

To say goodbye to 2021, we did 20 burpees (10 had just been done, so only 10 additional). Then, a set of 21s. One exercise at the near goal line, the other at the far goal line. Like 11s, but the rep counts will all be multiples of 3 (i.e., 18/3, 15/6, etc). Too much math for the PAX so early in the morning, but work was done regardless. Exercises were T-Bombs and BBSU.

Thang 3: 20-22

Start off with another 20 burpees. Then, a set of 22s. This time, counts will be multiples of 2 (20/2, 18/4, etc). Exercise at the goal line and the 22 yd line. Exercises were Monkey Humpers and Hand-release Mercans. All were done or nearly done when the clock hit 0612 and we took a quick run back to the flag.

Time for Hillbillys and Freddy Mercuries, then fin.


  • Dog workout at Norseman on Thursday, 0630. I believe that’s a bring-your-dog workout, but maybe your dog will get a workout too
  • Blood drive Thursday
  • 2022 Challenge at Widowmaker on Saturday
  • Stu gave Ivy League (birthday boy) his new copy of Freed to Lead to read and share with another Norseman

Where was Nacho Libre?

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Honored to lead this morning. I am blessed to have these men in my life!
