YHC had a sleepless night and was suffering from a belly ache.  It was a rough night/morning.  We got started a little early to get the heart rate up rather than stand in the cold, biting wind.  No complaints from the pax.  Several Larry Bird’s this morning: Chelms, Mighty Might, Hops, Cane, Titan, just to name a few.  Good work out there by all today.  Partner carry was more trouble than YHC anticipated.  It was at this point that YHC was very close to puking, while being carried on Cane’s back.  We were burpee heavy this AM (approx. 100 total).  The burpee tabata may have been better received earlier in the workout.  YHC was running on fumes at this point.  Thanks to Titan for providing some Mary and to Wingman for plank-o-rama.  Fighting through mornings like this makes us stronger.



• Convergence at the Fort and Joe Davis 5K tomorrow 01/04/2013.  See website for more details.

•New workout at Carmel Middle School: Run and Gun.  5K pace run followed by Tabata.  Titan reports it should be pretty painful.  Look for preblast on website.

•Chelms reports that opportunities for Q available at Centurian in late January or February.  Let him or Escargot know if you are interested.

•See website or weekly email for additional announcements.

Solid work, Mermaid. Nothing like parking lot sprints into gale force winds!
