Today’s workout offered a bit of a shock to the system with a brutal set of 11’s  which went contrary to the customary coupling of two exercises that are typically quite different from one another…


SSH, weed pickers, IW’s

The Thang:

The workout involved a circumnavigation of Newtown Park. We made two pit stops. The first involved a set of 11’s starting with 10 merkins and  1 squat. Worked straight through without an interlude.

After a mosey we settled into the the main set of 11’s (10 burpees and 1 body builder). The PAX most certainly aired their grievances which I acknowledged and subsequently ignored. After each set we ran a quick loop of roughly 150 yards.

We ran back to the flag and closed it out with a bit of Mary.


We spoke of dear friends, hospitalized and succumbing to illness. COVID unfortunately continues to effect our lives and the lives of those dear to us. We spoke of some challenging workplace conversations to be had as well as the joys of dodging jury duty. I spoke about the guilt I have for not being more involved in my father’s care as he suffers from dementia with my mother as his main caregiver. We held a moment of silent thought and/or prayer.CS
