  • After five days of piano wire hammies from last-week’s KB intro, YHC dialed it back a little for week 2.  All in the name of self-preservation for the coming weekend’s marathon experiment where we answer the question no one is asking, “Can F3 and 6 miles a week prepare you for a marathon?”  Hope you still got your money’s worth.
  • McGee, no doubt feeling saucy with the impending release from the inlaws’ guestroom, poked the Skunk twice the morning to no effect.   The Pax were disappointed time ran out before the fine suggestion of KB burpees.
  • Dolphin (from the Greek meaning, “fish with a womb”) appearing out of the gloom after running 3+ miles to the workout.  Strong. (Would have been stronger had he brought his kettlebell…just sayin’).
  • Stage Coach scores his first (?) EH: Welcome to FNG Baracus who posted on a rainy, chilly morning with his old-man dumb bell.
  • Make good on your Leatherneck by 11/15 or you will be replaced.
  • HC for Metro Christmas Party on 12-8 and the GORUCK on the website.

Touche. I just thought a few burpees would be a nice cap to the painfest.

Maybe just 20 of the PAX were upset that we didnt do burpees. I was fine with that after a burpee overdose Monday at Split Endz.

Good workout, TR. And thanks for helping us to focus on technique with those KB’s.

Great workout TR. Pretty sure Thin Crust was filling his drawers with KB-sized nuggets this morning…brutal brother. The pain and rain was tough enough without the incessant crop-dusting!

I brought my “skunk” stripe kettlebell and was still left off!

What I like best about this workout is that it was #BackBlasted the day before it happened.

That’s how we roll in the Southlands Dredd….looking to the future.
