Inspired by the recent Octothreat discussions and workouts in both Carpex and Louisville, YHC presents the Decathreat. It’s like the Octothreat, but two more. Why jump right over one more to two more? Because two more is one more than one more, and one more would be called “nonathreat”, which sounds way too much like “not a threat”.

BOM: YHC took us out
Check out the big brain on Hermes. It only took nine warm-up exercises before he cracked the 10 x 10 code.
Mumble chatter as we left the bridge “We came all the way over here just to do BTTW? We could’ve done that at the shelter.” Yes, but no one would have seen us.
If you’re not familiar with the copperhead method, it’s down slowly on one-two-three and up quickly on four. YHC was asked what that has to do with Decathreat. Nothing, except they’re both awesome.
The Indian run was supposed to be up the Cary Parkway hill, but alas there was not enough time.
Hermes does Indian runs backwards, because of course he does.
Mumble chatter as we finished with burpees “You’ve come a long way, Disco. I liked you better back then.” Me too, Term Paper. Me too.
Speaking of TP this was Day 2 of 5 of him wearing the Breath Taker. He’s looking for someone to pass it off to next week. Not it.
Callahan called me Disco Deck. I want to make fun of him for coming up with something so cheesy, but I’m still kicking myself for not thinking of it first. Can’t wait for his blog.
Chipper brought cupcakes leftover from his birthday yesterday. Time for a Respect Q.
Thanks to my brothers for lifting me up and letting me lead today.
