Warmup: Ran away as Skip joined late – felt guilty and went back for him….he is my boss after all – over to the baseball field as Field 5 was taken over by huge tents.

….all after running to the percentage field line from the baseline each time.
Ran back over to the grassy area near Field 5 since that was where YHC stashed his work badge and phone…
Partnered up and did a modified Dora 1-2-3
200 American Hammers (2 count)
300 Merkins of any flavor (Diamond, Regular, or Wide arm)
PAX was pretty tired out at this point, so we did some planks to rest…for about 2.5 minutes high, and then 2.5 minutes low.
6 MoM….ha! Not many of the PAX was aware what MoM stood for, so YHC explained, all while the PAX got a rest. Aye. Snickered me for a rest period while YHC bantered.
25 IC Rosalitas
25 IC Dollies
15 IC Flutters
Moleskin: Snip has become a consistent member of the Field 5 PAX. Very happy to provide another opportunity to get involved in the PAX sir; YHC knows that mornings are difficult while taking care of family.
While Thriftshop lives out in Duvall, it is also difficult for him to be in many workouts. He has been a very consistent, OG PAX member, and my backup Site Q since inception. Happy to see you every week. Thanks for the running push every week sir! #runwithfastermen
As an admitted Sad Clown (SAD CLOWN: A man with Decelerating Fitness (only because of knee surgery), Fellowship (normal 40 year old problem where we work too much and neglect our social life) and/or Faith), Skip has been a welcome competitor and very consistent through the short time of Field 5 existence. YHC is very happy to share the F3 experience with him and excited for the opportunity to see him included in other F3 events\workouts.
WoW: YHC read a quote by Angela Ducksworth on grit that YHC found inspiring:
Taking a lesson from child psychology, Angela advocates the use of “proximal development”: “…give somebody something that they’rejust able to do with support, then once they’re able to do that [on their own], you give them the next thing they’re just able to do, and that’s how they grow.”
