Once all PAX had strongly completed this challenge, YHC informed them of the Good News that we had completed AND the other Good News is we still had plenty of time for more!

Mosey across Water St. to the parking deck attached to Embassy Suites. Utilizing the stairwell on the side, complete the following:

THANG 2:

Start at bottom and complete 10 Squats, run up stairs to the top floor, then come back down and stop at the Floor 2. Jump out of stairwell to complete 20 Squats. Run up stairwell to the top, then back down to Floor 2. Pop out of stairwell to complete 30 Squats. Back up the stairwell to the top floor and finish with 40 Squats.

I had even more Good News for the PAX! We had now completed 2 exercises AND we had just enough time left for…

The FINISHER:

Now that all PAX were on the top of the parking deck, we made our way to the center and circled up for:

The Hammer of Thor – Start with 1 BBS and 1 four-count American Hammer. Then 2 BBS and 2 four-count American Hammer. Continue this build until you finish with 10 BBS and 10 four-count American Hammer.

There was certainly some grumbling about sore legs and YHC was grumbling about the difficulty of counting that out while feeling like crap, BUT we all finished and finished strong!

Time to mosey back to the AO. We still had a little time for a 1-minute Plank Hold. Mistakenly, I had Pathfinder to share some words of wisdom or great philosophy. He decided that was an opportune time to tell us about his planned private time with the M. The one-minute Plank Hold may have got cut short to avoid any further details.

Shout out to Waldo for venturing out and choosing The Battleship this A.M. for his first beatdown across the bridge. Strong work!

Moleskin:

Tons of F1, 2 and 3 available for those who love F3, this coming Saturday, Nov. 14th. Check Slack for all specific details, but think about it….. 0530, Iron Island beatdown, then drive to WB for 0700 Baywatch Beatdown, then drive on over to Eden Village by 0900 for the check presentation and initial work detail, THEN drive on over to the Comfort Food Cook-off from 1300-1600 for some good eats and plenty of F2, THEN, you can make your way over the bridge for an Oyster Roast and MORE F2 from 1600 until Ordnance kicks you out!!! Freakin EPIC

COT:

Prayers for Steak Knives 2.0’s and their lacrosse teams/families as they finish out the tournament season. Additional prayers for our country, and all prayer requests, both spoken and unspoken, across all AO’s this A.M.

SMACK TALK!
