Pulled CMUs out of my van. 1 CMU per PAX. We did a series of exercises in the parking lot and then moseyed 25-40 yards to the bathroom / concession area for 45 seconds of wall-sits, then of course, moseying back to parking lot for next exercise. We did all exercises in cadence, and all wall-sits in unison.

Just finished reading Living with a Seal over the weekend. Squeegee kindly let me borrow it. Jesse Itzler, multi-hundred-millionaire (married to Sarah Blakely – billionaire who invented Spanx), felt like he was on auto-pilot for the last 20 years, even though he constantly pushes himself to run ultra-marathons like Badland 135, he still felt like he was living his life at home too comfortably and in too much of a routine when it came to day-to-day. He met David Goggins at an ultra and was immediately taken aback by how unconventional he is. Goggins is a retired Navy Seal, motivational speaker, Guinness world record holder for pull-ups, author of “Can’t Hurt Me”, and has done many many ultras and holds many many records. Itzler asked Goggins to come live with him for a month to “shake up” his life and train him. After that month, Goggins left and Itzler went into a little state of depression and didn’t work out for 6 weeks after. I took from this that getting out there and pushing yourself is so much better when you are not doing it alone. We weren’t designed to go through things alone. I encouraged the PAX to not take other PAX for granted. We have each other to lean on and provide a foundation for encouragement and building each other up. Don’t take that for granted.

Pretty sloppy Q. I messed up a couple of the names of exercises, and also my counting. I called reverse crunches “reverse lunges”. And I called the upright row a “deadlift”. And I continue to start off my counting on the Motivator incorrectly. The PAX laughed and were cool about it of course, but it made me check myself, that I’ll be more prepared for my next Q.
