After nearly summer time Texas temps yesterday, the winds of the plains came back with a vengence.
COP – Four mile run with the M.
Worlds Worst 11s – The exercises were an Air Bud Merkin (both hands off the ground at the top of the merkin) and a weighted Texas Hammer. This is a WWII sit up with a 10 lb weight, at the top of the sit up, perform a one count American Hammer. 10 Texas Hammers/1 Air Bud Merkin, 9 TH/2 ABM, etc.. 1 TH/10 ABM. A short run was included between rounds.

Namerama, numberama, Hardywood lead us out.
Moleskin – YHC must reiterate doing this by yourself is the worst. Today’s title came from one of the finest examples of a man to ever walk the earth. If you don’t know the story of Steve Gleason , drop what you are doing and get familiar with him. While a star special teams player with the New Orleans Saints he was diagnosed with ALS. His story is a lesson for the rest of us.
My theme for 2017 just might be NO WHITE FLAGS.
