Time to get wet. Dino led us in flutter kicks at the water’s edge. All PAX arms linked. Better keep your mouth closed. Arms still linked to knee deep and squats were attempted. After 2 or 3 a 3 foot wave decided we had enough and knocked sown the wall. Oh well, enjoy a swim for a few minutes.
Indian Run back to the AO where Mary’s took us out. Merkins, Pickle Pumpers, more Merkins, flutterkicks (Double Check style), Alphabet and one or two more.
COT: Prayers for BRR runners and Labor Day safety of the PAX. Venus gave us a breakdown of Brolympics events. I was personally thankful and glad to be back in the saddle after a few weeks out.
Moleskin: I know, I know, this BB is late. I am sure I will hear about it later.
The radar warned us and it was not more than 10 minutes into the workout that the rain started coming down. Oh and the lightning. That did not stop 24 PAX from pushing through. For the entire workout, it was wet and stormy but it sure did make for a fun workout. Venus and I were talking about how long it has been since we actually got out in the rain, uncaring, and played around. It was fun and for those that were not there they missed a good start to the Labor Day weekend. A little F2 at Donut Inn to pack on the calories we burned and off we go.
