Lights Out

Lights Out

13, including 1 FNG, showed up to a pitch black Maul to get their hump day workout in.  I’m not sure if it was Mighty Mite or I who forgot to pay the power bill, but we’re working on our communication for the future.  I need to get him to stop using his pay check on beer and save a little for the bills.

The Thang

I took the Pax for a mosey in search of light somewhere.

Who knew a few parking lot lights being out would be such a problem. It was odd to see how dark The Maul can be without them. YHC had to adjust a few things, but it all worked out. Hops commented during warm-ups that it wasn’t supposed to hurt already. I’m not a big warm up fan, I just like to get right to it. I guess Hops needs to dip his toes in for a bit before he takes the plunge. A big welcome back to Fraggle and Dirty Bird. It’s been a little while since we’ve seen their faces back at The Maul. Fraggle also closed with a great prayer.

MM tweeted some words of inspiration to me last night since he wasn’t going to be able to post. In his honor we did Burpee suicides.

Welcome FNG Foxy Lady (Carmello Smith). I’ve been working the EH for quite some time, so it was awesome having him make his first post at The Maul. It was a pleasure as always to lead.

Thanks men! My fear of being renamed Foxy Lady has subsided.

Mic Check, indeed, put the Pain in COP – who knew jump tucks and high knees back-to-back could hurt like that? Mic Check apparently.
The :45 elbow side planks were brutal too…I’ll be using those soon…like Saturday at #F3TheRock
Great Q Mic Check – my man never disappoints…did you get any of your suggestions for the painfest from M Mic Check? Q’s Baracus (Anvil) & Semi-gloss (DV) – dug into their respective M’s repertoires to bring the pain to their AOs this morning…..

I would save a lot of money on beer if I started drinking Yuengling and Corona exclusively.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
