COT- YHC took us out.
Moleskin. YHC was tempted to skip out this morning, but knew there would be brothers there waiting for me. It was pretty high on the wetness scale–maybe the highest after a memorable No Toll a few years ago where we were donkey kicking in large puddles. After a while you just let it soak in and we were moving enough to keep warm. Swing planks were a nice challenge. The cardio kickboxing was a bit of an experiment, but everyone liked it, so YHC will have to introduce it again. It definitely will get you out of breath and gets the upper body pretty wobbly at the end. Not a lot of mumblechatter today–we were too focused/or out of breath! 300-330 Merkin count.
