Was good for YHC and a few others to get back today after shaking some injuries and some lack of motivation. A little quiet to start the morning and end a stair workout themed week. Brought the big dog speaker today so tunes could be heard at all parts of the stairs- even our cross fit compadres kept their tunes off until we were finished. Evidentially they liked our music better- or we were just louder. Lots of variety of exercises and difficulty seemed to make for a fun workout and all body parts got some work. A good sweat had by all! Numbers seem to have gotten consistent in the double digits- but we can still bring some Kotters out to play! Great support and encouragement for those that post. That is truly the important part- support and encouraging each other to continue to strive to be our best. Looking forward to bringing back the Saturday Ruck tomorrow! Hope to see a good number of you there!!! Have a great and safe 4th of July weekend!
