15 strong for a humid run day at Badlands!

For the past couple years I have made myself go to run day before Q Source.  The funny thing is I always dread run day but then feel great after finishing.

Seneca: “We suffer more in imagination than in reality.” Meaning, we spend so much time worried about how bad things are going to be, that we actually torture ourselves more than the thing we’re worried about ever could (that is, if it happens at all).

We can prepare by attacking head on and we can change our perspective.  Mind over matter.  If you don’t mind it don’t matter.  Embrace the suck and say I❤️ the Bridge!

Mosey to Gate.

Warm up:

SSH, Imperial walker, tempo squats, reacher.

Run to Bridge.

5 Merkins/5 Squats run over the bridge,

10 Merkins/10 Squats run back

15 merkins/15 squats, run over the bridge

20 merkins/ 20 squats, run back

25 merkins/ 25 squats

Pax run at their own pace and if they finish early wagon wheel or do flutter kick for the six.

Mosey back to circle.

4+ miles felt all up hill to me in the humidity!


YHC shared another quote I saw recently.

“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”

–William Shakespeare

It’s all about mindset.

We ❤️ the Bridge!
