COT-Sippy took us out.
Moleskin. Lots of mumble-chatter today, especially around the kickboxing. I think we had fun with it. I did see some strong work. Some got into envisioning what would happen if we really carried out these moves in a battle. Experimental sound effects were added to a bit of hilarity. Swirly thinks we are ready if the SEALs show up. Thanks to the PAX for indulging in a new type of workout. Expect some serious soreness tomorrow, especially in those small muscles right under the armpit.
Announcements. Bring your coats for Marmaduke. Normal workout schedule on Christmas Day.
Grateful to lead today, and I’m grateful for how you all have had a part in shaping me in 2018,
