Burpees and Heartbreak Hotel- What Did You Expect?

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 02/20/2020
  • QIC: Gekko
  • The PAX: Toxic, Boucher, Septum, Jumanji, Puro, Lifo, Feud, Heisenberg, Bernie 4-points, Updraft, Matlock, Barn Door, Eclipse, Pud, Bowzer, Mr Woodchuck, Synapse


After a brief warmup, the pax, 17 strong, headed to heartbreak hotel, with brief stop at the parking lot past the rain tracks for more warmup and stretches.  

The Thang

It was Team Toxic vs Team Boucher. For the next 26 minutes, we did stairs, burpees and sit ups. One point for each time back up the stairs per pax member.  At one point, the youngest in the pax, Barn Door, was heard whimpering. It was the first time in his life he didn’t use the elevator. Team Boucher beat down team Toxic 69-64. Toxic, showing his age, first pick was Synapse. They last time these 2 were together they were complaining about the high cost of Medicare premiums. Boucher, not known for his punctuality, showed up early to scout. His first 2 picks Jumanji and Pyro. It was over before it even started.
