Nothing fancy about today’s plan, just lots of running, burpees and KB swings. Strong work by all. Night Court may need to look for some more outlets for his aggression. He gave me a bit of a scare with his emphatic “I ain’t scared” after set #2 of the sprint/swing/burpee. He quieted down when he realized there would be set #3, #4 and #5.

1st leg of the Kettle Bell Sprint Cup: “Where the hell is Donkey Kong ? Did I run past him?” (He was 150 yards up ahead of the pack! Fleet-footed & strong!)

It’s nice to see that Bananas finally acquired a respectable KB!

Great work out this morning — the buses nearly killed me!

Good to have you back out Matlock…with your tried & true late arrival no less. Carrying TR’s 45lb jack-o-lantern around on the merkin chaser lap was unsavory….especially considering my Deacs are going to get drilled by TR’s Tigers this weekend and I had to carry that Tiger Paw emblazened widow-maker. Should’ve rolled it into the woods somewhere.

Matlock, we were just discussing the possibility of you rolling in late when you did. Pretty funny.

Harley, that was not very pleasant but extremely efficient, at least 2 workouts in 45 minutes. Even the master junk talkers were silent today. Nice work.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
