Definitely a windy one today.  The first turn around on the diddly squats was brutal.  Lots of mumble from Jay-Z about just repeating the same thing over and over.  Surprised he could talk since he could barely breath.  ~2.75 miles completed by Piper.  Thanks Daisy for the new run exercise name.

Good amount of running today.  Lots of mumble after Crunchy Frogs and 100x 100’s in first round.  Decided to cut it to 50 for the other 3 rounds.  12 burpees were just the right amount to hurt but able to do in one stretch.  It was a fun workout.
