YHC arrives about 20 mins early, just in time to see Quiche rolling in from a few fast miles of EC.  Crowd grows as we get close to 0700, expecting an FNG, but no show.  Have to get back to the EH.  Time.  Quick disclaimer, let’s get going.

Warmup: SSH x 10IC, Imperial Walkers x 10IC, Goof Balls x 10IC, Cotton Pickers x10 IC.  Mosey

Mosey up Main Street to parking lot behind the Stowe Building for 15 to 1.  Partner up, partner goes to opposite side of parking lot.  Do 15 burpees on each side.  Meet in middle for 15 booyah merkins, continue to opposite side for 15 jump squats.  Meet in middle again for 15 American Hammers.  Continue this doing 14, then 13….when get to 5, increase hammers back 10 until the end.  This was difficult, everyone worked hard.

Mosey to field of dreams to push the blocking sled.  One pax jumps on the sled and pushes as far as he wants.  Other pax do LBC, SSH, Mountian climbers while sled being pushed.   Good work.  Mosey to picnic pavilion.

Divide into four groups.  Group 1 goes to the bar for 5 pull ups, group 2 10 decline merkins, group three 10 step ups each leg, group 4 10 dips.  Rotate to each station for three rounds.

Go to fountain for Mary of various pax called exercises.  Go the Yank for Pledge.  Time

Had a quick word about decisions.  Who and what we surround ourselves with makes a big impact on the decisions we make.  And often it isn’t the major life decisions that have the largest life impact, but the small ones that we make on a daily basis.
