Aaaaahhh… T-shirts. Shorts. No base layers. No wool. The fair weather is back, boys in spite of some of the #fairweatherPAX not quite being back. Seriously… Even @Sanchez was here. Wherefore everybody else? Nonetheless, 13 PAX rolled into the Gower parking lot ┬áto get their sweat on with some partner work. Here’s what went down.

  • Been a while since we went heavy on the cardio. The goal was to keep guys moving with little to no rest and keep that heartrate high. Based on YHC’s experience and the general huffing and puffing amongst the PAX, it appears we have a #missionaccomplished
  • The weather change is most welcome, but YHC’s gotta get back in the habit of making sure I hydrate the night before. Unlike most SwampRabbit PAX, I don’t like to bother with a water bottle during workouts (#tooforgetful #mightmerlot), so getting water in the night before is crucial. Was pretty parched afterward today, so everybody put that on your list of things to keep an eye on.
  • Another side effect of the nice weather is the reintroduction of some serious STANK in COT, hence the title of this post and the pic at the top. I LOVE the smell of COT STANK in the morning. Smells like… VICTORY
  • #Tclaps to @BradyBunch for coming back out after taking a serious a$$-over-tea-kettle tumble on Tuesday. Looking forward to the future from you, brother
  • #Tclaps to @Frankenreiter for continued max effort. Already seeing progress brother
  • @FriarTuck is considering a move to the Denver area, but need to get a line on a job. Anybody with engineering contacts? Help a brother out. YHC’s gonna try to hook up with the Littleton F3 chapter
  • Continued prayers for @ScubaSteve. The interview went well. Now we just need good news back.
  • Keep those Spartanburg contacts coming. YHC has the Q in Spartanburg on 5/3. We’re gonna put a Tank Yard caravan together to go out there and show those boys how we do it!

Finally, for those of you not on twitter, @ScubaSteve has a shining example of how you thank your Q for a good workout. I hope to see a lot of this from you all in the future:

My only regret is that I have to wait till after work for these.

My only regret is that I have to wait till after work for these.

See you in The Gloom
