Moleskin:  What started out as a friendly workout turned into a suitable #F3beatdown as Zip-A-Dee’s Hillwork smoked the PAX.  Call it instinct but I have a feeling Z’s 5 burpee penalty was planned from the “git-go”.

We covered A LOT of ground and more than usual; however, the PAX outperformed and responded in gladiator fashion.  Although we’ve only been active for a few weeks (month or so), the entire PAX has noticeably gotten stronger week in and week out.  Today was the most impressive performance by the beasts of Outland to date by far and by ALL!!!! 

Q-Z was littering the hill with yellow laundry as if donning a zebra shirt at Sun Valley’s Friday night lights football game the night before #nextweekzipwillhaveawhistle.  It all started with Chicken Dance giving the first 10 count of the day and starting at 1.  To quote Keyshawn Johnson on ESPN #comeonmayun!!!!  This isn’t your first rodeo.  And then it was all downhill from there, literally!!!

Oh that sneaky Q.  Once at the obstacle receive instruction, Q-CT slips in and oh yeah, see the stadium, yeah that’s part of the obstacle challenge as well.  To quote Spielberg, “pfft, way to casually slip in the stadium work a half mile a away.”

The high school provided an unexpected obstacle as the PAX found the gates locked.  Not the first time we’ve had to overcome this particular obstacle so we just added into the wienke and kept the pain train moving forward.  However, instead of scaling the fence, Swiss Miss and Zip-A-Dee decided this presented chance for all to check their waistline.  So the majority of PAX squeezed through, recovered their feet and ran for the bleachers.  Kudos for ingenuity.

Great to see Swiss Miss back out bring some speed to the PAX; however, nobody’s been able knock off Electric Slide during the traditional end of the workout jailbreak up the hill to the VSF.  #dudehassmokeboots!!!!!!!!

Q-Z caught CT and Chicken Dance taking in a little fartsacking during the combined 100 wide arm merkin hill work.  While the PAX was 02 deprived and just in the 40’s / 50’s, Team CT/CD were in plank position as if finished.  Corporate calls them out and CT says, ohhhhhhhhhhhh it’s not 50 and it’s 100.  Yeah man get to work.

Spielberg extra dose of pain this a.m..  He must have smelled sweet because one of the local bees mistook him for a flower and then decided to leave a stinger in him as a memento.

Outland PAX are keeping Electric Slide and his wife in prayers. ES’s wife is on the waiting list for a double transplant.  ES is going for a new job and prepping for upcoming bodybuilding competition.

Geez, sounds like a real smokiest. Hate I missed it. I got some back issues from foxhole last week. So I might not be seen for awhile. Save that obstacle coarse I’d like to get some of that.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
