The High Notes:

Great time this morning as usual! I will say this was a bit more of a smoker than I thought it would be. I hope you lads felt that it met your Skunk expectations and prepared you to grub like crazy tomorrow night or Thursday…I am about to eat my arm already! It seemed that the first round was painful, but the second seemed to take it to another level with muscle fatigue. The hill sprints quickly became hill jogs (that is of course with a soft J) after a while with the progressions and started to feel like recovery since the bell work was brutal towards the end. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am thankful for all of you, and I pray that you love and lead your families well this Thanksgiving, and let them know how blessed you are to have them!

That was a smoker. If anyone wants to get a new KB on the Christmas List, point the M to this website. They are having a pretty good sale. 25% off everything. 15% off of the already discounted discontinued models (not much left for selection there)

The factory is near Carowinds, so you can pick up locally to save shipping.

For me, I’m headed to Lowes to get a large drill bit. I need to drill some holes in mine.

Great Q, and the type of workout I love to hate where you get smoked because the kb is the focus of the kb beatdown and the running is just a side thing. 0.0

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Smoker of a workout. Busch made lots of fans this morning.

And by fans, I mean people that wanted to hurt him.

Glad to be back at Skunkworks.

Agreed. Smoker, Busch. Been feeling that one all day, and starving too. Bring on the turkey!

It was good to be back at Skunkworks. Great group this morning. At times the only thing keeping me going was Gummy’s expertise Mumble Chatter. When the workout was over and my armpits were sore I knew it was more than enough to make room for turkey. Thanks for the beatdown Busch.

Looks like a good one. Hated to miss it.

Just fire up Nickelback and do a thousand merkins while imagining people belching and breaking wind and it’s like you were right there.

There was an uncomfortable amount of Nickleback.
