There’s nothing wrong with an impromptu touch of the nibbler…

YHC managed to be 2 minutes late (running theme these days), as the “Go” Juice took on an additional meaning in the wee hours of the morning! (TMI?) That said, it still gave me the stated benefit of getting the ole’ bod charged up for a smokin’ at Basecamp (the only known workout that may soon petition for a name change… for clarity, moderate does not mean “easy”).

On arrival, YHC finds that the scheduled Q had to sub-out (due to an “F3 trophy”/injury; prayers lifted for healing) AND Long Distance had to sub-in for his sophomore Q at the ‘Camp’. And a smokin’ LD audibled to bring to 13 strong PAX on a Monday AM.

Wow, There was nothing lower intensity about Base Camp this morning with Long Distance on Q! Great job and way to bring it. I like to visit different workouts from time to time and it had been a while since I had posted at Base Camp. Great work by all the pax today. Greyhound is always an inspiration, especially doing a half mile of Indian Runs around the track.

There was even mumble chatter of a rename for Long Distance to “Run Stopper Jr” today as he took the pax to work with a full Jack Webb Ladder, then 1/8 of a mile of Bear Crawl and Lunge Walk.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
