Naked Moelskin:

TCLAPS to all the PAX today, we covered a lot of ground and everyone did a great job sticking together in transit.  Long Distance lived up to his name today.

During the pre workout chatter YHC learned that the wall squats were part of a Tuesday workout, sorry for the repeat but it wasn’t planned

Runstopper wanted to move the large stone balls at our first stop today. YHC believes that you can’t lead what you can’t do, so I’ll leave that effort to Runstoppers next Q at The Maul

The tall wall jump ups felt like vertical burpees. Probably like vegetables for a 2.0 – not your favorite but good for you.

Interesting that nearly every stop our our tour today can be described by some sort of restaurant #socialcommentary

Thanks to Wingman for the backblast title

Grueling workout Leo. Q covered a lot of ground as promised and used all the areas The Maul has to offer. Somehow you made the 45 mins feel like 1:45 mins.
Everyone seemed to take turns leading the sprints. Wingman and Haggis were looking extra speedy today. Welcome Woodchuck, keep showing up brother.

I totally agree. I was starting to be afraid that I was going to be late for work at 8.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
