9 pax assembled for Gear Day at Death Valley, finding we had more stations (and kettlebells) than pax. Could so few employ so much?
COP – aka brief warmup
The Sled is the timer station to rotate. Pax rotate onto the sled in order, returning to their station rotation after the sled.
Fini. Well, not really. Collect all the station gear and consolidate at YHC’s Jeep. #lowrider
Take-out by Tulip.
Thanks, Dollywood, for the invitation to Q today and the request for a Gear Day. Those are always fun and provide variety to our usual mix.
Everyone got about 2 full circuits completed and 4 trips on the sled (at least that’s what YHC got and we stayed together pretty well), and a lot of work was put in. Mumblechatter was pretty low, as we were both spread out some and focused on pushing metal when on and recovering when off.
We could have, perhaps, used a few more bells on some of the stations; however, that is kind of a pro/con. Pro in that the pax would’ve had more options, but a Con in that the pax would’ve had more options. Instead, pax creatively modified as needed or otherwise buckled down and got it done. The sled being a good example: watching Header or Smokey drag it through the wet grass and dirt patch (which really put the brakes on your momentum) versus watching Puddin’ Pop pull it like his little red wagon, that was yellow and had no wheels.
And, the backblast title comes from the fact that YHC found gravel in his hair when showering. Where’d that come from? Anywho…
