With some humidity and sunshine 10 men including 2 FNGs went about a bit of work in uptown Belmont this morning. YHC had a diabolical plan as I drove up Southpoint Road to mete out the beating that would improve the countenance of the pax which I figured to be ready for such an event. Turned out to be the case. Tiger though not here due to a conflict with Girls on the Run commitment had ably planted the shovel flag for us. Then we proceeded as follows:
SSH X 20
2 burpees OYO

4 burpees OYO

This was harder than it looked. Pax hung in well. Humidity took a toll and that was evident on the BCS. HBH was tough today. 2 FNGs! Welcome Wanderer, so named for his frequent moves growing up in a military family. Dirt named for his rural Iowa background. Said something about being from the same town Clark Gable was from. But he looked more like Dirt than Gable to me! Again, great week for FNGs. Something about the warmer spring weather in the gloom maybe? Pretty strong week which is awesome! Let’s keep it moving.
