Nothing Fancy

KB group slightly reluctant after sitting and watching the lightning show for 30 minutes rather than getting massive through KB work. Agreed to head out and be on lookout for lightning. Plan was to go as long as it was safe. No reason to put anyone in danger. YHC made sure to mention the disclaimer. We got lucky and were dealt a little bit of rain and a lot of humidity. Great conditions for a workout that kept us on the move. 2.2 miles total run. Plenty of burpees and merkins, YHC favorites. Spackler, at one point, indicated that we should pick up the run pace, but YHC not nearly the running man that Spackler is. Hence, merkins and burpees. Great work by all PAX out there today. Very strong hill work by Cane, Spackler, Abacus, Purple Haze. As always, a pleasure and a blessing to be able to lead a fine group of men. YHC took group out in BOM.

Sorry to miss the fun this morning gentlemen. I had my annual physical early this morning. Check out the attached video for a re-enactment of my appointment.

Was a great Q. I was spend after that one. Also please accept a heartfelt thank you for helping me sweat out the weekend. After 2 nights in a row of going to bed before my 6 year old, I was finally ready to approach the gloom.

Dang Spackler, sounds like a fun weekend, maybe too much fun. Glad you came out and happy to help get you straightened out. Workout was a tough one if the deterioration of my spoken communication/cognitive skills was any indication. I was warning you guys to look out for thunder and called merkins merkees. Thanks, Haze for the feedback and for posting BB and tweeting count. I am happy to post to sight, but think I may need some advanced clearance. Time for some party planning. Aye.

I can’t believe this Pre-KB crew sat it out in fear of a little “heat lightning.” Please see backblast for Death Valley where the men got Huge! That reminds, me guess the reason this crew sat it out is b/c they are filled with Gamecock fans. They followed the lead of Clowney and took this one off.

No commment on you being huge. Just chuckled a little bit though. Thank you for that.

And, ssk your star QB Tahj how many plays he felt Clowney took off for you clowns. Boom.

Splinter, the reason you were save is the big Q in the sky isnt’ interested in little baby bells like those from DV, so of course you were safe. Now manly bells like those at Anvi, they would atract more attention…
