Valentines day testosterone boost

Followed by wall sit and ruck presses 14×2 THE THANG: Carrying our rucks and sandbags to Davie park, took the long way according to curd. Once we arrived to the turf field we lunged across half the field and sandbag tossed the other half. Each corner of the field was a called exercise with sandbag: deadlift, strait arm raise, bent over rows and overhead press. On the sidelines we put sandbag over right or left shoulder and quick shuffle to other end. Between goal lines sandbag toss to goal. 20 reps first round and then 15 for second round. My new “smartwatch” wouldnt connect to Bluetooth speaker. Thankfully for us my phone did so that we could listen to some dad rock and drown out curds various complaints! Strong work by all on the turf. Merkins and squats before heading back to launch for a stairway to finish. MARY: WWII situps and heels to heaven ANNOUNCEMENTS: none COT: YHC with the prayer

Date: 2024-02-13 AO: fast-twitch Q: Orange Whip PAX: Shawn Heath, hopper, Alf, Benny, Orange Whip, 5 FNGs: None COUNT: 5 Wind made it feel much colder than the 50 degrees my car said.
YHC went to bed at 12 and was up with a sick kid at 1 so I was not feeling it this morning. Put it on autopilot and ran a loop.
Saving all my energy for Valentine’s Day.
Good convo & laughs throughout.
– Joker has apparently solved our ongoing public masturbation issue and he’s on to bigger things with the city. – I shared a few dreams I had from childhood – Benny celebrates(?) 6 years from being hit by a car next week – and he said it’s going to be…fun 🤷‍♂️ – Alf reassured me that there’s no way I’ll be able to afford to send 4 kids to college – Gave Hopper credit for being there, talked to him for a moment then also saw him cruising down 51.

see no stranger

Date: 2024-02-13 AO: 3rdf-timekeeper Q: bratwurst PAX: bratwurst, Gump, das_boot, Roulette FNGs: None COUNT: 4 See no stranger has its roots in ‭Genesis‬ ‭1:27‬ ‭CSB‬ – So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God; he created them male and female.
An additional perspective –
@dasboot posted another quote from CS Lewis.
Here’s a takeaway. How do we see the inherent value in others (if we believe they have been created in the image of God) if they are different from us (physical, economic, cultural, ethnic, education) and/or they are in opposition to us (moral, sports, want something from us)?
@Kielbasa on Q for next week with Chapter 4 – “Come Alive”

When the Flipper’s away, the mackerel will play

Date: 2024-02-13 AO: swift Q: voodoo PAX: Saigon Sam, kirby, wildturkey, Wolverine, bratwurst, das_boot, fleetwood, Gump, voodoo FNGs: None COUNT: 9 I’m not really sure about that backblast title, but it’s all I’ve got this morning.
7 pax met at the AO in the windy gloom. We headed to the Bull Ring on our warm up jog, then did some dynamic stretching. DB and Brat met us there.
Today’s workout is a continuation of Flipper’s monthly theme focused on the closing kick of a race. Pax were instructed to run a series of 800 progressions in which each 200 was :15-:20 per mile faster than the previous one, culminating in the last 200 being at the average pace of the previous week’s fast 200 finishers. Recover with and easy 800 and then repeat.
I think most pax got 4 rounds in.
We don’t do Mary at Swift, but some pax joined the Bagpipes crew for a plank at the end.
Announcements: 1) Blood drive on 3/8. Please sign up. 2) Please sign up for Madison’s daughter’s 5k, which is coming up next month. 3) There’s a Savage Race coming in June. See Wild Turkey for more details and get training!
