Moleskin:

Extra swampy morning for some block work. IronPax challenges are no joke and the Pax was clearly not looking forward to what was ahead. They have managed to come up with something worse than the burpee with the manmaker which combines all the fun of the burpee with a block. May need to include a few of those in the next block party. On the first time through the cycle it became apparent that modification would be required. One advantage of the block work was that everyone was able to struggle together and lighten the mood with some mumblechatter…. something about Jay-Z’s mom or Piper’s mom or Jay-Z’s sister (Crabby PO’s wife) and black balls… guess you had to be there. Sprocket put in a particularly strong effort with 3 full cycles and no modifications observed. NOR of former FNG Kaleb now known as Chomper. Pax took moment in COT to pause and remember events of 18 years ago.

Low numbers seems to indicate Pax scared away by week 2 of the IronPax challenge. Although the challenge was daunting that’s no reason not to post and do what you can. In this case no one finished although all that posted got some work in toward getting stronger. Those that fartsacked need to post on Friday to redeem themselves. Even if you can’t do everything show up and you’ll be better tomorrow than yesterday.
