  • The second M/W Dreher bootcamp was a success. 
  • It was nice to have a small group. Don’t get me wrong — I love the energy in a big group, but this morning the smaller atmosphere was just what the doctor ordered.
  • Speaking of this morning, there was significant discussion (both here and Amble, I’m told) of soreness as a result of the kettle bells. That’s proof positive they did something and will be worked into normal workouts.
  • Also, there is talk of making Wednesdays a standing kettle bell-focused workout, perhaps with stretching.
  • Bear Crawls are universally hated.
  • The last time there were 10 or fewer people at Brickpile was December 20th, and we had just begun 3 times a week workouts then. Since then, we have added 7 additional workouts in 2 new places, and another location comes online Saturday (Irmo). Our growth has been fun to watch.
  • Irmo launches Saturday, August 3rd at Seven Oaks Park. 07:00

  1. Be on vacation next week and will miss Hot Summer Nights and 2ndF HH. Probably not #fuelchallengeapproved, but will be in for the next postfuelchallenge HH.
