Save for the burpees and the 11’s, this beatdown focused on active recovery. However, about 3 minutes into the 11’s, YHC realized the level of suck he had brought to the PAX. Unfortunately, the beatdown had already been written down and explained to the PAX and was in progress so there was no way for YHC to stop it. In Gumby, all the PAX took deep breaths and exhaled the suck that was just had in the 11’s. The PAX were also instructed to exhale all the stress, anxiety, fear, anger, and hand release merkins that were experienced in this week. Mumble chatter was ample on the paced long warmup mosey but nearly absent until the COT. Prayers for a friend who lost her father in a family that was experiencing tribulation. Prayers for our children living an interrupted life. Prayers for our country in a time of turmoil that we can come together in unity for the great cause of freedom. Always a pleasure. Aye!
