Pre-Thang: The PAX then moseyed to the gravel trail near the lake to perform a crowd pleaser.
We performed a crowd pleaser up to the number 8 (common theme) – 1 merkin, 1 groiner, 2 merkins, 2 groiners all the way to up 8 and back down. We took a 10 count at rep 8.
Thang 1: The PAX then moseyed to Heartbreak Hill and partnered up. One partner stayed at the bottom and performed LBC’s or flutter kicks while the other HIM ran up Heartbreak Hill and back down. We performed this routine until each partner ran the hill 8 times.
Thang 2 : The PAX then moseyed to the smaller hill by the gravel path and kept their same partner. One partners stayed at the bottom of the hill and performed Bonnie Blairs AMRAP while the other partner Bernie Sanders up the hill and did 8 diamond merkins. We did this a total of 4 times.
Thang 3: The PAX then moseyed back towards the shovel flags. We stopped near the row of light poles and do a ladder workout. Each PAX would run to the first light pole and completed 8 diamond merkins, then back pedal to the start and then run to the next light pole and complete 8 air squats then back pedal to the start, run to the next light pole and complete 8 diamond merkins, then back pedal to the start and run to the next light pole and complete 8 air squats. We did this until we hit all the light poles. That is A LOT of back pedaling.

Cheap Seats referenced his daughter (Faith’s bday) – she turned 8 this day. Faith always has a positive outlook and great attitude on everything in life. I explained how I was struggling with negativity at work and how I was bringing more people down then lifting them up. We need to take a step back and instead of going down a rabbit hole of negativity, look to have the positive outlook of an 8-year-old. Only speaking kind things of people and not trying to bring them down. It’s easy and fun to go negative and pick apart of superiors or people at work. Have the courage to pick people up and encourage their ideas!
