Announcements: Be sure to check and RSVP to Circle K’s awesome Preblast of the Walking in a Winter Wonder CSAUP event coming up on 1/21.
NMS: The PAX left right at 530 for the circle this morning, which meant we left some stragglers in
dust cold fog. YHC refuses to mark Sippy as LIFO because his transportation is less reliable in snow than most.
Finding good footing, staying off sheets of ice and avoiding massive 35º puddles was the order of the day. Despite the sloppy weather, everyone was in great spirits throughout the workout. Is that a sign YHC didn’t put enough beat in the beatdown? Knowing there was lots of snow, ice, slush and puddles YHC thought staying in close might be the best strategy to prevent overly slushy shoes. It partly worked for YHC.
Qing and counting is still not second nature to YHC. That and a slushy brainfreeze didn’t help. So thanks for the prompts from the PAX today. “Can we recover?” “Wait .. lunges, not squats?” Saab’s response to YHC’s encouragement to make them deep lunges … “all six inches.” Hilarity ensued.
The PAX got to pick workouts on the third and fourth rounds of the Three Corners. Offshore’s box jump burpee suggestion almost brought down slushballs on his head. Meanwhile, Hardywood greatly enjoyed YHC’s declaration on one of the last of the Three Corners that YHC “made ’em extra schloppy for ya.”
LADY, YOU’RE SCARING US!
Here’s to a less sloppy beatdown tomorrow. See you in the gloom!
