Suck It Up

AO: Big Creek

When: 05/03/2018

PAX: Whiz, Clyde, Snake, Olaf

QIC: Whiz

This morning was YHC’s 4th boot camp beat down in a row and I was admittedly having a hard time getting motivated to bring the pain after getting smoked by Yogi, Clyde, and Mickey already this week.  Should I give in to the temptation and mail it in this morning so my body can recover a bit?  HELL NO!  There were 3 other HIM counting on me to help them get stronger, not to mention my own weak state of mind that needed an adjustment.  I resolved to keep the pedal floored and added a little extra to teach myself a lesson in DRP bricklaying.  So thankful for F3 and the Big Creek PAX for pushing me in all the directions I need it most.

Warmup:

  • SSH x 20 IC
  • Hillbilly x 15 IC
  • Weed Picker x 15 IC

The Thang:

There are 13 light poles around the walking path by the playground.

  • 10 burpees at every other light pole, with 10 BBSU in between
  • Rinse and repeat with 10 Spider Man Merkins (pull right knee outside to right elbow on way down, alternate sides each rep on way down) at every other pole, 20 squats in between

COT:

Lots of expansion taking place all over the region and ideas for how we can grow the Big Creek AO and reach more sad clowns.  Chance encounter with Darth Visor and Tarzan at coffeteria after was very timely!  Praise for Snake’s current consulting gig that will replace some of his previous income and ease the anxiety of transitioning to new work.
