7 Pax decided to get out of bed this morning and got better.
- Flying Tomato, Scout, Chitwood, Dos XX, Squirrel, MadBum, and Waldorf (Q)
- Once around the block
- 10 4 count windmills IC
- 10 arm circles and flapjack
- 10 cotton pickers
- 10 imperial walkers
- 2 rounds of the following HIIT – (45 seconds on/15 second rest)
- Mountain climbers
- Carolina Dry Dock merkins
- High knee
- Shoulder tap plank
- Long slow flutter
Mosey around the block for the following.
Partner work. One partners runs up the hill and back, while the other does his set of the following:
- 300 SSH
- 200 lunges
We ran out of time for the burpees; but we can get them next time
During this part of the workout, I heard both of Chitwood’s partners (Tomato and Bum) both admit that they were not counting the lunges. At one point, I overhead, “I haven’t been counting since we started.”
Return to the courts from some stretching.
Chitwood closed us out in prayer.
Good work by all
- Virtual 100 Moore Men – Stryker sent out a save the date; Styker, could you please send it again?
- Roadhouse – we missed you – get better
- Squirrel’s daughter messed up her knee (might be ACL, might be more)
As we counted off today, I had the realization that at 43, I was the youngest person there today. I don’t say that to brag, I say that to remind myself, and all of us of what is possible if we continue to put in the effort. Everyone gave 100% today, regardless of age, and that is what matters. We made each other better by participating, communicating, and laughing with and at each other. I appreciated every PAX there today.
Scout – you have literally transformed your body in front of our eyes over the last year. I appreciate your presence, humor, and friendship
Chitwood – thanks for the mumble chatter this morning and movie references. I appreciate that we can recite lines from Tommy Boy.
Dos – thanks for rucking with Hammer, and then showing up for the workout. I appreciate that you are the reason I was introduced to this motley crew.
Tomato – Your never give up attitude is infectious. I appreciate your giving nature. You make us all better.
MadBum – I am sorry we didn’t have jump ropes this morning. I appreciate that I get to see you when our schedules align, your commitment to being just 3-5 minutes late, and the stories you share.
Squirrel – I will come get that eggnog later; because I told Kahne about it! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your wisdom, insight, and appreciating my sense of humor (we aren’t running up that f’ing hill are we?). I appreciate that you continue to push us all, sign up for Q’s, and generally just make us all better by just interacting with you.
