6: Bo Peep, Croissant, Esquire, Hobo (QIC), Orange Julius, Captain Nemo (FNG)


Orange Julius shared a quote from Seneca and I’m fairly sure it was:

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”

He articulately excellently, as is customary for him.

I showed up and Orange Julius said he was planning to jog the entire time, but I strong armed him into letting me Q a little BC. He gave me 20 minutes. This was the first workout that I had no idea what I was going to Q. We warmed up and started a short mosey and I had to think of what was next, on the fly. It was a little stressful for me but I got through it. I think I’ll always have something in the back of my head for future workouts. A ‘go to’, if you will.
