All Star Tuesday morning @ The Ridge – Burpees suck

22 of the finest to be found in Harrisburg battled the humidity and lost many body fluids in the gloom of HiRHS during our “Mid Summer Classic”. Have to have goals in life, ours today was to get to 100 in burpees each. The “phantom” shovel flag was planted and off we went.

1. Super effort by everyone this morning. Lot of perspiration, always a good thing!? About 485 reps in total, assuming 20 Turkish Get Ups @ 3 corners is a solid number! Add that to running the bleachers 1/2 times and about 1 mile in running @ a minimum makes for a solid beat-down.

2. Wondered where Old Glory was this morning. Eventually learned from “good brother” Swami that it may have “tumbled” into a spot where it was forgotten this morning.

3. Nice to have HiRHS alums in the group. Magnificent shared with no hesitation how to get into the stadium area without the need to cut the lock on the front entrance fence or having to hop it for that matter. Do I sense there was a time or two when and and his HiRHS mates may have spent some after hours in the stadium and amongst the bleachers, doing whatever high schoolers do after hours in these places.

4. Missed a few weeks because of vacation. Welcome gain to Flip Phone, Nose Dive, and Turf Toe. As you know, by “simply” showing up, you will only get more fit, stronger, and faster. We as a group are having you as a part of us.

5. A lot going on as we approach the peak of summer, as such, always a need for Q’s. If I can lead, anyone of you that haven’t can. Simpy step up.

6. We hit our goal of 100 burpees each!
