As 2019 begins, I wanted to introduce a way to track our physical progression (or regression) throughout the year, which is where the Board of Pain comes in:

The concept is simple: do a line on the board, run a lap.  continue moving down the board until the time is up.  I’ll bring the board out multiple times this year, and we will see how far down the board we can get throughout the year.

9 PAX (including one FNG) met me in the Gloom for the first ever Golden Strip Board Meeting.  Here’s how it went:

Good work by everyone today, and remember that the board is about your personal growth in the first F: Fitness.  It will be a good barometer of whether you are improving or not.  Don’t compare your results against other people’s, but focus on your effort and how you can improve.  It was a pleasure to lead you, and I can’t wait to bring the board out soon
