Q: Folsom

The PAX gathered round the shovelflags at the top of the stairs. Khakis prompted Folsom to “get going!” right at 05:30. The mission statement was made, the 5 core principles were stated, the disclaimer was made, and Folsom gave an extra warning that he was not going to be anyone’s friend for the next 45 minutes. Folsom lead the PAX on a lap around the circle drive before leading them to the center for a much needed warm up.

The Thang: The Future of Fitness

Folsom had the PAX count off in 2’s. Folsom explained the beatdown thusly: one group will perform the below listed exercises AMRAP while the other group would take the stairs, perform 5 blockees, a.k.a. man makers, then return to relieve the first group. The 1’s got lucky because this is the only time the coupons would be waiting at the top of the stairs, because they are going to carry them down the stairs to hand off to someone in the second group to carry back up the stairs. This was done for approximately 23 minutes The PAX got to the second round of Derkins when Folsom was forced to call Omaha!

Prayers for Borland and King Boo, Warrior and his 2.0, Pablo’s mom, Honey Mom, Waffle House, and of course, anyone else struggling right now.

COT: Short and Sweet (from Folsom!!??). With a feels like temp of 35, today was a great day for a beatdown. 21 men is an awesome number too. But come January the feels like will be 50 degrees colder. Yep, -25 workouts are coming! Don’t let the cold scare you. Talk to an old timer like Folsom or Khakis, we made it through the winter and you will too. Folsom challenged the men to have 21 show up in January. The cold will make you into a man!

Mumblechatter: Even at 44 years old, Folsom and about half the PAX, will still laugh like a school boy when someone farts during Mary. Also Folsom got a post coffeeteria text from Khakis on a beatbown well done. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Aye- Folsom
