The briskness in the AM is almost unsettling as everyone knows the day will be perfectly warm and beautiful. Alas, PAX aimed to get heartrates up a bit. Besides, YHC got a new Garmin, and the training readiness claimed I needed to do a bit more recovery. There has been massive pushes by all PAX to get in great shape for the summer, ushered on by the #F3MayChallenge put on by the Cleveland F3 PAX.

We put our rucks on!

Rucked a steady pace. And lots of good conversations were had. All told we rucked 3 miles (or close to it…Challenge ready PAX made sure the full 3 was achieved!).
There were several “good mornings” and some grouchy people who didn’t respond to our friendliness. So….

15 burpees OYO
10x American Hammers IC

– Monday (May 27) is Memorial Day. YHC will Q the Murphy Challenge at Rock n’ Root. It was decided to open it to ALL people who would like to venerate our fellow countrymen who have sacrificed their lives for service.
– June 5 and June 7 – Special D-Day WOD’s at The Swanson and Ol’ Dusty Trail. At the Swanson wear things you don’t care if they get wet/sandy, and bring a towel and your ruck.
– Summer Yeti Challenge – Starts Monday! See details on how to earn an awesome patch!!! First CSAUP opportunity: Go Ruck has an 80th anniversary challenge to complete 2 rucks and 4 WODs within the week. YHC will Q Abduction June 1 and will lead an EXTRA early ruck (0430) and will lead TWO WODs at Abduction (normal start time, 0600). Possibly a 3rd WOD will be run at ODT on June 7. Rest of the challenge is OYO. There are some long ruck options…check out Go Ruck for details or hit YHC up!!!
– Kids Summer Workouts will be starting!!! Once a month, we run a family friendly workout open to the public (mom’s and kids). First is June 8. Regular F3 workout at 0600. Family WOD at 715. Yummy food to follow. YHC is NOT Lent Fasting, so I’m READY for meats and all sorts of goodness, ha!! Come out and spread the word.
– Topless mentioned some OTB workouts that will possibly lead to a new AO launch! Focus will be “long walks/rucks” stay tuned!!! What amazing leadership. Odd Job is signing up for every event under the sun, and would love company. He’s putting money where his mouth is and looking for fitness, leadership, and betterment of himself. Anyone wanting to join him, reach out. He is choosing really good things to participate in. Flo is also considering a Wellington Summer OTB, that may lead to something exciting!!! If you read nothing else, pay attention to these HIM right here. Great stuff.
Thanks, blessings, and lifting up many of us who are facing challenging times. The Lord does not ask us if we want to face things, or if we feel ok. The Lord knows what we need and we are not to always know why we face these things. Buck up, men! Pray for mercy! Give Thanks to our God. You will all persevere.
