LBC’s until everyone was back together…

The top parking lot had recently been seal coated so was a bit slick. We moseyed down one parking lot for better footing.

As I told the guys to line up @Hook&Ladder mumbled suicides?!?!?. Correct!!…..kindof. He got the suicide part right….
Burpee broad jump suicides
Burpee broad jump out 2 parking spaces, sprint back to the start, then to the 4th space and lastly to the 6th space. Rosalita’s when done until, all are finished
Repeato. During the second round, Seal said, “he jumps like a frog” pointing at YHC. To which I responded, “doesn’t everyone jumped like that”??

Mosey back to the flag


Naked Moleskin:

– Great to be back out at #Powderkeg and see old and new faces. It’s been a while.
– @Gluten always an inspiration. He gives 110% on all exercises. #noquit
– As I sat down for COT I noticed my left knee was bloody. Had to be the #burpeebroadjumpsuicides. YHC’s form probably suffered a bit on the last couple burpees, grazing the asphalt.
– The workout name is also the name of a song from Snow Patrol. Here’s an excerpt from the song
“It’s easier to lie and be safe
Time and time again I’m half stalled
One giant leap of faith is easy
When everyone you ask is so sure”
Better to try and fail than not try at all…….

Prayer Requests / Announcements
– Prayers for @Hook&Ladder as he deals with some family issues
– Prayers for @Toolman as he continues to deal with an injured foot
– As the weather turns colder, guys want to hibernate. Keep EH’ing and re-EH’ing to keep guys accountable.
– Keep EH’ing guys for F3Anderson

See ya in the gloom…..
