The day after Xmas and 7 PAX showed up for a biblical honoring beat down with a ruck. Each part of the exercise remembering the journey of the holy family to Egypt to keep the Christ child safe from King Herod. The roll of the dice were rougher on some than others. Especially Stache that seemed to be the roller of the burpees. Discussion about what he had done to upset God to put harder obstacles in front of him than others. The rougher exercises did unfortunately bring a Merlot splash for him. Mary was tried to push the limits with amrap for 60 seconds to maybe simulate childbirth like pains…. not sure that succeeded. YHC forgot to remember the donkey kicks as part of the rotation, but not sure that would have been safe with the rucks on the back. So we are grateful for that omission. All in all, something different for the Saturday workout. One more week before the new year…. time for individual and group resolutions! How do we better ourselves in 2021???? See you all Monday!
