No off days

THE SCENE: A cool 76 degrees. Transplant noted that it was the clearest sky he’d seen in a while. 
SSH IC x 10
SSH IC x 10 + 10 silent count … YHC failed to stop on time so we applied 10 penalty burpees … it’s really frustrating to fail at counting when you are the Q

Psalm 101
I  will sing of steadfast love and justice;
to you, O Lord, I will make music.
2 I will ponder the way that is blameless.
Oh when will you come to me?
I will walk with integrity of heart
within my house;
3 I will not set before my eyes
anything that is worthless.
I hate the work of those who fall away;
it shall not cling to me.

Emphasis on not setting before our eyes anything that is worthless. 
Prayers for my cousin’s pregnancy, Transplant’s upcoming ultrasound, Cowbell’s job opportunity and Beaker’s mom. 
I sent this slack late yesterday to the berm channel and several PAX mentioned it as a catalyst for avoiding the fartsack this morning:
“@channel don’t fall for the sad clown excuse of “you deserve a day off” and fartsack tomorrow. Post and get better!”
The modern American man seems to have an entitled “I deserve this” day off just for showing up. I love having a band of brothers to see in the gloom that recognize that showing up is merely the first step. 

This workout had very few breaks. YHC was encouraged by how the PAX were encouraging and maintained a high effort level throughout.
