Spittle flying everywhere

Spittle flying everywhere

Workout Date:





Bling and Valvano rucking; KB - Wolverine, Billboard, Penelope, Hamburglar, OneCall (QIC)

The Thang:

Fall weather!!!  64 degrees and beautiful

Having missed KB’s the last 2 weeks due to some extra ruck training, YHC was anxious to get back.  Kept checking the Q sheet and saw nobody listed….wondering…wondering…Headgear tells me in another conversation – o no!  I committed to Q, but I wanted to take the morning off and do Hot Yoga later on.  So YHC volunteered to take it!  On a side note.  I wish Headgear and Geno (who claims to to be a yogi (is that the right word?) would Q some yoga stretching workouts.  We all need it!!!  The 1 stretch that Headgear taught us one morning is amazing.

Picked up my partner in crime, who’s 1st words almost every morning are “I’m so tired”.  Met Valvano for some parking lot sprints/runs/stairs/etc for 30 minutes.  Then headed over to the AO.  Bling and Valvano took off rucking and the rest of us were gonna get after some KB’s.

Prayer requests unspoken

– Hamburglar counts butterfly tramp stamps at the water park.  He actually has a pen and paper and makes hash marks.  Add 1 if Bling is there.
– Billboard is HUGE.  Ridiculous this guy – go buy a dang 200 lb KB already so you are challenged
– YHC assumes Bling and Valvano actually rucked.  Everytime I saw them tho they were just hanging by the porta potties
– Penelope – you will be missed when you finally have that gender reassignment surgery – at least your F3 name will still be perfect
– Wolverine – easily the sexiest one in a tank top!!
– More strong work from this amazing group of #HIM
– Missed Weedeater at another workout.
