CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We regrouped with Chairman who shared some general words of encouragement about picking each other up. We don’t always know what’s going on in each other’s lives, but being there for each other is what this group is about – letting people know they have somewhere to go and someone to listen if they need it.
YHC came in hot this morning. Hindsight it was probably the loss to Syracuse this week that did it this morning. After settling in, we watched Chairman run off on his long distance run while the rest of the PAX followed YHC to the track probably expecting an easier #katytrailthursday before I announced a 1.5 mile segment out the gate.
Teasip, apparently the only real Texan, was the only one that got the two forward, one back reference. YHC thought it was clever, and PAX quickly learned how underutilized parts of the quads are on the backwards run. Alright Alright was like a horse seeing an open field for the first time on the longer portion, and YHC begrudgingly brought up the six trying to make himself better.
Not too much mumble chatter per the usual ktt, but the track atmosphere was nice to constantly see everyone’s position even if you fell behind the group. Splitting the quarters with reps was an interesting take on the running, but the PAX seemed okay with it as a “very different type of hard cardio”. YHC will take it. All in all, we covered about 3.5 miles on the day, which is well beyond YHCs expected capacity.
Shout outs to Aaarrrggghhh and Mile High for pushing people and YHC to get better this year. YHC will bitch about it every second of the way but deep down appreciates y’all’s encouragement. Y’all were the motivation behind the 1.5 miles from hell.
End of the workout wrapped up with a lot of talk about kids…a lot. Cliff notes edition: YHC’s love life is a traveshamockery, the “Dirty Thirties” are right around the corner for a few PAX, kids make everyone sick, and changing diapers is nasty.
