Apologies for the delay in sending.  YHC was feeling under the weather on Sunday partly due to football and brown water. #pimpinainteasy.

As I approached the AO at 6:55 and didn’t see anyone with the exception of three cars I figured the cold has pushed some of the pax to sleep OR possibly to Thunderoad.  #tistheseason.  Haze and Frazier had come early to get in their 12 miler before the workout.  I can only assume that their fear was my workout wasn’t going to be strong enough for them.  Jamboree also came early and added a few miles to his day as well.  Strong work.

Earlier this week YHC and Haze were talking about the workout and I decided to do the Murph as I have not done it yet and wanted to see what it was all about.  I now realize why I haven’t done it.  There was a LOT of MUMBLE chatter about the workout and several comments about how a few people should have gone to the rock instead.  Anyways we were off.  I was by far the slowest one out there so the rest of the Pax were already through have of their exercises before I got back.  Teddy and Frazier along with Haze, Bug and Jamboree were running their second mile when I had to call mine early because I didn’t want anyone sitting around.  Also I was beat.

We started the lifting circuit and more semi-refusniks were speaking up.  The lifting became too much for some.  Once we got to the circle of rocks and begin the rotation I felt that we needed to get some arm work in.  I always like to rotate on the rocks to give everyone a chance to use a heavy one.  The curls till failure was a favorite of mine, Jamboree and Bugeater kept it alive.  Great work to everyone.

Awesome lead. Man my arms still hurt. Sleeveless in those temps was something else. Actually did enjoy the murph. As measuring stick my first mile was 8 minutes, the 100/200/300 was 16 minutes, tr second mile 8 1/2 minutes, leaving a lot of time on Saturday to get me to nearly total failure.

Jamboree you and I got co-Q next week. Look forward to it!
