Cousteau led a long warm-up lap of the school grounds and kept the PAX panting for 30 minutes. Per Cousteau, “Hope your legs felt it the next day – next time we’re going to do a log workout.” Whatever that is.


The Tunnel of Love through frost and mud was a highlight of the morning.


Chum Bucket sought to squeeze in over 300 merkins in the final 30 minutes of the workout. The PAX pushed away in spite of worsening form and knotting triceps.
