The BackBlast:

Nine guys came out just after dawn for a field trip to the Zoo.   Weather – 49*

Warm Up – SSH; Windmills; Abe Vigodas; Bear Snacks (aka, mtn man poopers); high knees; and butt kickers; followed by a fellowship lap.

Thing #1:  Leap frog over fellow Pax lined up in a squat  – length of field.  Snake run (jump over fellow Pax lined up in forearm planks) – length of field.

Thing #2:  Animal Walk o’ Rama (half length of field, doing either 10 big boys or 10 merkins after exercise) – bear crawl, flamingo hop, moose walk, kangaroo hop, crab walk, frogger hop, and inch worm (duck walk, monkey walk, and crouching tiger were left for next time).

Wrap up:  Five minutes in the Monkey House – monkey humpers, crab touch, donkey kicks, crunchy frogs, and gorilla humpers.

CoT:  Met a marine officer yesterday rucking 60 lbs. for 10 miles  – training for basic course in Quantico.  I’m not there (I never was), but he’s got his vocation and I’ve got mine.  By keeping my eyes on my calling, I can excel at that and not let jealousy or worry distract me.  We each have places and ways we can make an impact that others cannot.  Go do that.
