Moleskin:

A couple PAX scratched at the last minute to keep the group short of the double digit goal. There’s always the next workout to get there. Mumblechatter seemed to die down a little more with each passing Maestro lap. It was conceded that this was likely more Maestro laps for Maestro than he has taken part in for the last year. Comment about high number of reps earned the group a set of 💯s then to take a break from counting a set of ABCs. Due to smoked arms Popeye early PB bring a lawn chair and a book on Wednesday.

It was nice to be back after being gone for 3 weeks.  Everyones legs were sore after Mondays workout so tried to get them moving to help recovery.  Frog jumps were a bad idea.  Coldest day of the year so far but didn’t feel to bad after everyone was moving.  Hopefully it will be the coldest day this winter!

Moleskin:

A lot of fartsacking going on in BlackCat country this morning. Rumored that all were terrified by Wapner’s PB threat of farmer carries. 3 men didn’t allow excuses to creep in and instead overcame to get stronger. Hopefully there will be a better showing next week. Small group didn’t cut down on the mumblechatter plenty of discussion of important topics of the day. YHC rethinking the box jumps from the first one and they hurt every time around. Good all around workout and all agreed that we never regret getting out of the fartsack and getting some work in.

Good turnout even with the threat of rain – started dry but that didn’t last. Appropriate for Ghost to post for a Halloween workout. YHC tried to mix in some spooky exercises with the block work – more running than expected along with the blocks. Block party always good on the arms later. Rain came with about 10 minutes left and even shelter from a tree couldn’t keep Mary dry.

YHC jetlagged from delayed air travel yesterday, but had to answer the bell at 0530. Nice crisp morning to get the blood flowing and get moving. Not a fan of Purdue (understatement of the year), but had to respect and pay tribute to what they did to Ohio State this weekend. (One PAX commented you can’t spell spousal abuse without OSU…)  Plenty of reps to go around and sprints to pay back IM for the distance running on Wednesday. Went easy on the Captain Insane-O to get a second round of BOILERS in. Big week with the first (of many to come) happy hour on Wednesday at 6 at Pepe’s and Porkchop’s VQ on Friday!

Mumble:
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.

Over Slept Extravaganza!

10 PAX posted (including the Q who was 5 minutes late) for a, Oh Crap I forgot to design a workout, workout.  Weather was a perfect 34F.
