MOLESKIN:
Mumble chatter was high today even throughout the burpees. PAX pushed hard and kept YHC motivated to push to the end.  Success was had throughout the workout with the only audible being the 300 V-Ups.  I believe we hit about 1/3 of those.

“The lens through which you view the world will become your reality”

Every day we are bombarded with negativity and malice. This can warp our perception of the world and cause us to embrace a mindset detrimental to success and our goals. As leaders, we have the power and responsibility to improve the lives of those around us. This quote challenges us to embrace a lens that views our families, coworkers, friends, and situations in a positive light. Let’s make the day count.

JUCO: Rush – Official Launch

THE SCENE: 61* and rain
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

Run 1.5 miles to the HVA track. On the track we did some dynamic warmups: High Knees, Butt Kickers, Karaoke w/high step, Backwards High Pedals, 1-2-3 walk with toe touches
THA-THANG:
6x800m intervals with 2 minutes rest between. Goal Pace = 5k mile pace minus 10 seconds

To make things interesting, we are making today’s workout a competition. The PAX were allowed to use their watches on the first interval to dial in their pace. All subsequent intervals were done “blind” with a goal of hitting your pace as close as possible. For every second above or below your goal pace you get one point. The HIM with the lowest score at the end of the workout wins. This workout is intended to help the PAX better judge their pacing based off on feel.

We ran out of time on the track to get in the sixth interval so performed it on the way back to the AO.

Scoreboard for the 6×800 Golf Tournament:

MOLESKIN:
Good speed workout especially to increase 5k times. I was avoiding puddles on the way to the track, only to realize once I got there that we would be working out in a downpour the entire time. Didn’t avoid any puddles on the way back to the AO. Good workout nonetheless.
