It’s always an honor to lead, especially at the Fishing Hole. This is one of my favorite AOs. Not only because it’s the closest one to my house, but it’s also the one that I could always go to when I was recovering from my leg surgery last year. It’s considered a “moderate” workout, but don’t let that fool you. That means lower mileage but higher intensity. With lower mileage, this AO offers plenty of opportunity to modify the called exercises which accommodates those of us who are coming back from injuries, recovering from races, etc. And it’s very FNG friendly. The numbers have been off for a while due to whatever (too many other competing workouts, too cold, too wet, too tired, blah, blah blah) so I was very appreciative when 3 veteran PAX rolled in at 5:27 am ready to put in some work. It’s a great AO with a lot to offer. Come pay us a visit sometime. We’ll make you feel welcomed.
Frehleys stayed busy providing helpful feedback for YHC during the workout. He was particularly thankful for the lengthy COT where we made sure he was all limbered up before getting too far into the workout. However, I don’t think he was so thankful when YHC called out so many burpees at the 1st workout station. I can’t repeat what he said here…
Chopper put in a solid effort as always and continues to amaze me. I hope I can get around the AO like he does when I’m 60. Much respect. We’re also thankful for his clean bill of health from his recent prostate cancer scare. God is good!
Cooter, Sr.’s new job is going well and we’re happy for that. He hasn’t been able to post much lately due to his new work schedule so it was good to have him back out in the gloom. And yes, that makes 2 Cooters at the same workout.
Great work today, men. Thank you for the opportunity to lead.
* Cooter, Sr. takes the Series 7 on Friday, 2/21. Prayers for him while he make final preparations this week.
*Chopper is running the Charlotte 10 miler. Prayers for a safe race.
*Frehleys’ mother-in-law is in the hospital with bronchial issues. Prayers for her healing.
*Prayers for YHC’s friend who’s having another reconstructive surgery stemming from her breast cancer. Cancer sucks.
