YHC has always liked working on the field at Mary Munford. With is being closed most of the winter, it was time to take advantage of it this morning. Though it is not as nice of a field as, say, No Toll, it is still open enough to do a lot of running with some exercises mixed in. Suicide 11’s using the trees is something that I enjoyed during TYA’s Thanksgiving beat down and decided it had been a long enough time to bring it back. YHC unintentionally “called out” Lab Rat and Shakedown when they seemed to finish it so quickly! YHC asked them if they went to the last tree when the were standing at the end line. My apologies, they were finished! Way to work you two!! You lapped YHC! YHC wishes that we could have finished the wheelbarrows but time was up. The Touch a tree DORA took a lot longer than I thought it would and, yes, YHC for got to do a burpee at one of the trees and Lab Rat made sure YHC did the burpee on the run back.
YHC really enjoyed this morning and the chance to lead you men! Everyone gave it their all and will reap the benefits of posting.
Enjoy your Thursday!
