While waiting for all PAX, 5 burpees on your own, wait we have more time? 5 burpees on your own, well if you finished early you must have the energy for 5 more burpees on your own (this might be Base Camp but there’s no standing around)

Serious effort by the PAX this morning, more running than normal at Base Camp but done in intervals and everyone not only powered through but as PAX finished had seriously positive mumblechatter for those still pushing, well done folks, keep the encouragement flowing.  Hops and Zip A Dee would have been proud.  Robin Hood and Boomer leading the way for us younger folks (pretty much everyone in Area 51 is younger than these two) at 62, it was determined that Robin Hood is 2 months older but the consensus was that at 62 it really didn’t matter and that we all hoped to be out in the gloom at 62!  Well done!  Robin Hood and Pele showing noticeable improvement in only a short time with the pax, great effort.  Dracula was looking slightly less sinister, especially on the track work.  YHC couldn’t catch Deep Dish on the baseball field runs but I did try. Passport twisted ankles left and right and suffered in silence…a GRT in the making no doubt.


Passport is taking over co-site Q duties at Base Camp from YHC – T Claps for stepping up to lead with Smash and CMD.

YHC will be partnering with High Tide to start a Saturday Moderate intensity workout, location tbd, soft launch was this last Sat with hard launch this upcoming Sat.  T Claps to High Tide for stepping up on that one.
