Great job by the pax today!  Nothing like swinging some iron around to start the day!  The circuit quickly silenced the mumble chatter.  A question was raised as to “why the walking already?”, just over half way through the farmer’s carry.  I prefer the long, smooth stride to cover more distance.  Gettin’ it done, is gettin’ it done, just make sure you get it done!  My apologies for the mosey back to the field, next time we’ll close the circle with the carry.  I’m sure you appreciated that quick breather about half way through the last circuit.  You’re welcome!  Thanks again for allowing me to lead.

Please join Bugeater at The Lodge for HDHH tomorrow night.  He’s getting lonely and we all deserve a cold one!

Nice lead again Brown! Shoulders are really feeling it right now as I type. Don’t know if its from the tiny, baby, partner shoulder circles or the firemans carry around the church…

Great workout this morning. I always dread that farmer carry loop around the church but overall a really great use of the gear this morning!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
