TClaps to the three 2.0s attending today. It is always good to have you with us, and shows your strength and character to get up on a Saturday morning and participate in these workouts. TClaps to the 1.0s for the family leadership and encouragement to make it happen. An additional benefit: 2.0 participation forces 6Mike to keep his QIC smack talk to PG-standards.
Shout out to The Knack, who is DR getting hitched this weekend. A more creative and planful QIC would have invented a “Ball ‘n Chain” workout in The Knack’s honor. Congrats on the marriage.
Hubert, FNG last week, has some serious strength. First, he asked if we could do one-leg People’s Chair in lieu of the two-leg variety (which apparently Hubert equates to sitting on his couch). Next, he pumps out full pull ups (WV-added) when the Pax is on the low rails. Whenever Hubert QIC’s, I may have to go to the Spa, which means attending F3/Mustang.
Lots of WVs and RUCs being sported today, and one WV/RUC combo. Cougar was in combo gear, buzzing around like a bee for most of the workout. Need Boone to bring over a few rocks from F3/Sparta for Cougar to carry next time.
When announcing the second JL, YHC shared a moment of empathy for Captain Bligh when he announced to the crew of the Bounty his plan to sail the Horn of Africa. Mutiny avoided by reducing JL from 7x to 5x, which was beneficial as YHC had nothing left in the tank. YHC was asked afterwards if the second JL was planned or if it was spontaneous given the few minutes remaining in the hour. Aye, it was planned, which is one of the benefits of QICing (knowing what’s coming next). Still need leaders for June 16, 23 and 30. Let me know this week if you’re up for it. I’ll start shoulder tapping the following week.
F3/Jungle starts in two weeks, June 16. EH those men residing in uptown. They’ll benefit from it, and thank you later.
