WARM UP

SLOW, MED, FAST – WHATEVER NAE NAE SAID IT WAS CALLED AT #BRODOYOUEVENF3 DAY THIS GENERATED A LOT OF MUMBLECHATTER. PAX REQUESTING MORE DIRECTION AND WONDERING WHETHER YHC ACTUALLY PLANNED THIS WORKOUT OR NOT, WHICH IS ALWAYS A YES. STICKING TO THE PLAN, MAYBE NOT ALL THE TIME.

50 SSH/10 MERKINS/TTT

MOSEY TO WATERFRONT

EVERYONE GRABBED A ROCK OF THEIR CHOOSING FROM THE BANK AND WE LINED UP FACING THE MARINA, DROPPED OUR ROCKS AND TOOK ONE STEP THE LEFT. WE PICKED UP OUR NEW ROCK AND KNOCKED OUT 20 CURLS, DROPPED THE ROCK AND RAN TO THE STREET AND BACK. NEXT UP, ANOTHER STEP LEFT AND ADD 20 TRI EXTENSIONS, THEN ADD A SET OF 20 MILITARY PRESSES

WE PUT THE ROCKS BACK AND RAN TO THE STEPS WHERE WE PARTNERED UP FOR A PRE-MURPH DORA. THIS IS WHEN THE MUMBLECHATTER REALLY STOPPED.

300 SQUATS, 200 MERKINS AND 100 BURPEES

FINALLY WE RAN IT BACK TO THE PARK AND LUNGED IN FOR THE FINAL 100M TO THE SF.

COT

PRAYERS FOR AYLA, PARENTS, ETC.

MOLESKIN: THE HUMIDITY SHOWED UP THIS MORNING WHICH ALWAYS MAKES THINGS HARDER. EVERYONE PUSHED THEMSELVES AND THE MEN AROUND THEM. WE GATHERED FOR COFFEE FOLLOWING THE WORKOUT AND YHC MISTAKENLY ORDERED TALL. WHILE WE KNOW HE IS PARTICULAR, WE NOW KNOW SPAULDING IS HIGH MAINTENANCE. DON’T GO BRINGING THAT GUY A TALL LATTE. NAE NAE HAD TO MISS COFFEETERIA TO GO TO THE DUMP WITH HIS NEIGHBOR, EVEN THOUGH IT CLOSES AT 6PM. IT WAS A GREAT MORNING GENTLEMEN!

SYITG,

JV
