What a great morning for a beat down! YHC didn’t know what to expect or how many PAX to expect, but was very pleased when 18 total showed up for the two workouts. The breeze was blowing hard off the water which offset the humidity some. YHC drove over to the AO yesterday to check out the terrain, but it looks like any other golf course so YHC was still left with no idea on what was going to transpire this morning. This was definitely going to be a “fly by the seat of your pants” workout! Paper Jam arrived first and YHC thought he was a local PAX member, but came to find out he was visiting just like YHC. Then some PAX member starting rolling in and a few had already Rucked 3 or so miles. Great job, guys! Some pleasantries were exchanged as the rest of the PAX rolled in. Some advice was given to YHC by Reef Donkey and others and then it was time to mosey. After a combined Warm-a-rama with the Kettle Bell PAX with Reef Donkey and YHC leading, 10 total PAX followed YHC to begin the Hole In None workout.
YHC partnered up with Denver for the DORA. Great job, Denver! Next, YHC led the PAX on what he thought was the cart path for the 40’s. Not sure what we were on, but it worked out. We eventually found a concrete cart path and continued on that around a lake. 11’s had to be cut a little short for time. The bear crawls and the Burpee Shuffle were tough, but the PAX pulled through and killed it. After moseying and meeting back up with the other group, 45 minutes was up! Really fast 45 minutes!
YHC would like to thank the F3 Carterico PAX for letting YHC Guest Q on his birthday! Also, special thanks to Reef Donkey for his help and taking care of posting this back blast on Carterico’s website. I truly enjoyed this morning and YHC’s hopes ya’ll have a great rest of the week! YHC will be back!
See ya in the gloom!
