The Thang

Hello Dollys

Mosey one lap slow
Meet back in at the end zone

100 yards the hard way.

Start on the goal lines. Sprint to the 10 yard line and do 10 x merkins, sprint back to the goal. Everyone waits to start the next portion. Sprint to the 20 yard line and do 10 x flutter kicks, sprint back to the goal. Continue this to the other goal.

What goes up must come back….. 100 yards the hardway … in reverse. Sprint to the 100 yard line, 10 x merkins, sprint back. Sprint to the 90 yard line and do 10 x flutter kicks, sprint back. Continue this until you are home free.

Indian Run x 3 laps

Q: Priorities

Where can you find pleasure
Search the world for treasure
Learn science technology
Where can you begin to make your dreams all come true
On the land or on the sea
Where can you learn to fly
Play in sports and skin dive
Study oceanography
Sign up for the big band
Or sit in the grandstand
When your team and others meet

Words of Wisdom: Check out Q1.2 – The King and Q1.3 – The Queen. These are the daily discipline of physically training the body and the daily discipline over what is put in the body.

“You can’t out King your Queen.” – Dredd

It is impossible to train or maintain your body to your expectations by only having discipline over one and not the other.
