I have been absent for many mornings the past 2 weeks so I felt well rested and ready to go at it hard on the concrete at The Maul today. Unfortunately the Pax had to pay the price for my fartsacking.
Before I could call out the first exercise Tiger Rag decided he needed his back scratched and since the Maul lacks trees, he violated the parking lot with a sight I wish to never see again. And I thought cats hated being on their backs.
The 100s seemed to get us off on the right foot. No mumble chatter so I assume it was tough.
The Merkin Shuffle made its debut later on. I can easily see this dance craze sweeping the nation. No music needed, just the moans and groans of men working hard will suffice. Hops gets credit for the naming rights.
Thanks to Dora and Freely’s Comet for suggesting some Mary and planks during our relay race. Great call and thanks for looking out. Great work pushing yourselves.
