  • YHC showed up with two plans methodically crafted to every detail, depending on the amount of puddles, and attendees.  Both were simple, but intended to push ourselves in different ways. The KISS principle is underutilized.
  • The current workout was agreed to by both PAX, and somewhat enthusiastically (by both), because we both felt that we needed to do something hard today…and I’m behind a little bit this year for my goal for end of year.
  • Long discussion about instilling discipline in kids, and the frustrations when they just don’t do what they know they can
  • I truly appreciate Bartman pushing me beyond my limits today, and allowing me to vent some frustrations.
