Moleskin – The weatherman must have frightened off some of the pax today as we had relatively low numbers at Skunkworks. The goal of the morning was to get in plenty of heavy lifting while keeping the pace up. Initial plan was to use the field for the sprints, but audibled for the fire lane due to smaller crowd – worked out pretty well with only limited dodge & weave during the out and back sprints. There were a few grumbles during the warm-up when we went from Squat Press to Clean to Snatch, but everyone pushed through as we have come to expect from this group. Nearly had to call search and rescue during the perimeter loop as Destiny’s whereabouts were in question. Turns out the savvy veteran took an alternate route and was waiting on the pax at the bells. The pax seemed very comfortable during the double bell sequence this morning – a testament to the effort that has been put in over the last few months. Time definitely flies when you’re having fun as the clock struck 6:15 before we could begin Mary. Your Car Seats are thankful we stayed dry this morning.
