The Thang:

A new year, and YHC wanted to try and set an initial bar for his fitness level. The “old” army physical tests came to mind, and today seemed like a good time to try it out.

the army test comprises the following:

2 mile run

2 minute pushups

2 minute sit-ups

Moseyed over to the lake, started up the timer, and 8 times around the lake gets 2 miles. When the pax finished they maryed for the 6.

next we moseyed over to the playground for the push-up and sit-up portions. The pax made it known that 2 minutes is a long time to do proper  form in both exercises.

We had enough time to do a morning call with shoulder shrugs then moseyed back to the flag for dying cockroach’s, ankle touches, and JLos with bear providing encouragement for proper form on the JLos



Hillseeker coming up, Bear may lead a group into North Georgia for a long run to get all the vert in 1 go.


Naked-Man Moleskin:

Prayers for more patience, as it seems to be dwindling everyday in all aspects of life. Thankful the 10 pax came out in these conditions.

Now that the bar is set, YHC may do 1 mid year test, but will definitely do one end of the year.

And as usual, honor to lead this morning.
