-50 yards out [with rock]; 20 curls with rock; 50 yards back

-Not much chatter today, as we were moving at a pretty fast clip.  Except for a few “three counts” the heart rate was running pretty high.

-On the trail run Your Humble Correspondent could hear someone close on my six.  As I sped up, he sped up; as I hit a full sprint, he hit a full sprint.  At the end I turned around and realized it was someone’s 2.0.  The best part was when he looked me in the eyes and said, “We lost ’em.”  Not as in, “I’m worried about my Dad back in the woods”… but more like… “we smoked ’em all”.  Whoever he is, I like the kid.

-O’Tannenbaum did a very graceful tumble when he tripped over the log at the entrance/exit to our trail run.  We may incorporate that into the workout next time.
