Bricks and Hills: Since BRR is not far away, time to hit the hills. We even added hand weights (bricks) for those worried about missing shoulder work today. Not to worry, the Tomahawk boys came through with flying colors as evidenced by the constant mumblechatter. Bull even mocked YHC at the top of Pec’s Peak, which was thoroughly enjoyed by yours truly.
Conditions: 70 with 100% humidity coupled with a saturated ground from last night’s rain
PAX were led to the benches beside the hill with a convenient, small hill nearby. PAX lined up on benches and repeatedly performed ten incline merkins and ten dips while each PAX, one at a time, ran to the top of the hill and performed one Mountain Man-maker. Once each PAX has had an opportunity to climb the hill, head to the Brick pile for some hand weights. Collect said bricks and report to Goat Hill and:
– at cross-walk, perform ten merkins
– at first sign, ten jump squats
– at second sign, ten lunges
– at third sign, ten side/front raises
– at fourth sign, ten squats
– at fifth sign, ten Big Boy sit-ups
Mosey to the bottom of Hopps’ Hill and alternate between repeated ten Imperial Walkers and ten girl curls while each PAX, one at a time, runs to the top and performs one Mountain Man-Maker.
Mosey to Peachy’s Corner and assume the People’s Chair (side/front raises, press, and curls performed while waiting for PAX) while each PAX runs to the bottom and back up
Mosey to Pec’s Peak and perform repeated ten Big Boy Sit-ups and ten Flutter kicks while, you guessed it, each PAX runs to the bottom and back up.
Mosey to Brick Pile and return bricks to their resting place.
Mosey to Flag
Count ‘em off

Devo: Habit #2 of mentally tough people:
- You have to delay gratification.There was a famous Stanford experiment in which an administrator left a child in a room with a marshmallow for 15 minutes. Before leaving, the experimenter told the child that she was welcome to eat it, but if she waited until he returned without eating it, she would get a second marshmallow. The children that were able to wait until the experimenter returned experienced better outcomes in life, including higher SAT scores, greater career success, and even lower body mass indexes. The point is that delay of gratification and patience are essential to success. People with mental strength know that results only materialize when you put in the time and forego instant gratification
