YHC: Francis

Back Blast: Band of Brothers 7.18.18 The Theater

Who: Francis, Heads Up, Dimon

Where: The Theater (1600 Olentangy River Rd)

What: YHC saw on Slack that we were completing a Fitness Exam for this workout and instantly regretted a 5k earlier but was excited for the test! YHC woke up with no time to spare at 0530 with Heads Up waiting in the parking lot. Some light stretching and mummblechatter occurred as YHC knew Dimon would be coming in hot and wouldn’t want to miss the fun.

After Dimon arrived the PAX completed 20 SSH IC. The PAX then mosied to the dock for the Thank:

2 minutes timed Push Ups, if knees ever touch you’re done.

2 minutes timed sit ups.

2 mile timed run around the lake.

The PAX all continued the 2 mile run without stopping and all finished under 20 minutes. As the run ended at 0611 the PAX mosied back to the top lot and stretched for the last minute of time.

PAX counted off and BoM. Dimon led out the PAX with thoughts and prayers for all PAX members who are needing support and for us all to continue to grow as Father’s, husbands and people.

Come out tomorrow for a solid leg day led by YHC and as always its an honor to have been freed to lead! Aye!
