YHC made his way to Firehouse this morning crooning out a tune alongside Axel Rose in his car.
“‘Cause nothing lasts forever And we both know hearts can change And it’s hard to hold a candle In the cold November rain”
He reflected on the fact that indeed nothing lasts forever. 20 Seconds passes by in an instant.
In his reflection the memory of young skinny Axel and old…Uh…Husky…Axel crossed YHC’s mind and he wondered what happened that caused this situtation and then it became clear that it was Sweets, child o-mine. YHC remembered all the halloween candy still lying around at his abode and imagined that the rest of the PAX also faced the same dilemma.
This time of year we all really are welcomed into a Jungle of nutritional pitfalls. YHC decided then and there to take on his mission to help the PAX burn deep into those extra calories that they had consumed in the preceding days. He knew he had to take them down to the Paradise City that is a full body Tabata beatdown. It’s just 20 seconds, how hard could it be?
At the precise time (give or take a minute) of 5:30 AM the PAX moseyed around the parking lot and circled up in typical fashion for the warm up. We went ahead and stopped at the “normal” spot so we wouldn’t risk another Spaghetti Incident. Because certainly none of us want that.
The PAX were instructed to grab a coupon – Lightweight apparently had an Appetite for Destruction and grabbed a rather large coupon. PAX then moseyed back to the pavilion.
YHC gave the basic run down of the Tabata and in short order we started the timer. YHC emphasized that form was a central part of the equation. His words were something along the lines of “Take it slow and it will work itself out fine. All we need is just a little patience”
