Ye Olde Moleskine:

Was great for YHC to be off IR officially and, as always, was a privilege to Q alongside the Centurion pax.  With the combination of just 2 days removed from a trip to Nicaragua and coming off IR – hope the workout was worth the forsaking of the fartsack.

Some particularly strong running noted on the part of Checkpoint, Dory, Mermaid, Cane, Jamboree, Cole Slaw, Udder (when he wasn’t holding back), RT (when he brought it fully)…and a few others I can’t remember.

Escargot, despite a gut full of Nicaraguan stew, was doing some strong work on the natatorium hill.  As an aside, if you ever need construction help – call Escargot – amazing what he did in Nicaragua.  Checkpoint was also fearless in doing great work while suspended from the bridge.  It was humbling to be a part of that.  Check with the 3 of us, Iron Horse, BTB, DK or Dozer if you’d like to hear more about the Bridge to La Flor.

Good to have Spackler as FNG to Centurion despite his constant bellyaching about the drive from SE Area 51 to SW Area 51.  Many whiny returns Spackler.

Thanks also to MC for calling out my less-than-perfect plank form after I admonished the pax to watch their form. #notaprofessional  #doasisaynotasido

Great workout Hops, & great to have you back out off IR! Can’t wait to hear more about the Nicaragua trip and all you guys accomplished and how the experience affected each of you.

Champagne, you brought the pain with the kettle bell pre-workout this morning too. Loved the kettle bell deck squats!

I can see why Centurion is gaining popularity. Great site – many options. Still think you somehow gotta get on that nice field. I’m pretty sure I was one of those you ‘forgot’ about showing outstanding effort out there today. Except for on Ballz to Wall. Daddy don’t do that.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
