  • The Pax responded to the logistical site challenges  and posted 15 strong today.  Tclaps all around.
  • The Burpee may be the Perfect Exercise, but the Squat to Jump Knee Tuck is not far behind: an exercise that takes you from Resting Heart Rate to Infarction in about 15 seconds.  100 in under 3 minutes is just nasty.  After about two minutes, the unaware passerby could have reasonably assumed, “There be a circle of fools trying to squash cockroaches.”  Good thing F3 Films was not on hand.  #LacticAcid, #Earthbound
  • Yet it could have been worse:  The Skunk Q’s  invited Moniteur to the Pax to satisfy his CSAUP of 205 burpees.  We were not entirely disappointed that he could not make it to join us this morning.  Still, the invitation stands…
  • Running with (2) 20 lb. dumbbells:  Awkward.  Hard.  Empathy for Ruckers.  #ArmStretchers
  • Ruck training must be going well–The Shore (M.D) was asking to do running curls.  YHC and Dredd  concluded at BHM yesterday that The Shore’s prescription for all pediatric ailments is likely a punch in the throat and 20 minutes of various shoulder flapping (probably in a squat).  2.x’s worst nightmare.

That is all.

I think Tiger Rag might be on to something! I bet the kids wouldn’t feel the thigh shots at all if they were in a good squat while doing shoulder burners. The punch in the throat might not go over so well though.

Yeah, I don’t want to say that Shore is the world’s most unsympathetic kid doctor, but I heard that his reward to a kid who doesn’t whine when he gets a shot is to NOT give him another shot. #NoLollypopsEver #CharlesDickens
