9.15.18 – Welcome to Thermopylae

In the first decently cool workout day of the season, the Q decided to dial it up now that the humidity was out of the way. Archive clued him into the “Spartan” exercise, so he freshened up his historical knowledge and hit the 3 PAX that posted with a kinesthetic learning experience.

The Thermopylae Experience:

  • Motivators IC (x7) (Get Motivated)
  • Abe Vigoda IC (x14) (because a good warrior prepares)

The “true” Spartan: Like a regular Spartan, but on The Hill, and with your “Shield” (coupon). Oh, and pauses for history lessons after each 10 reps

  • 30x hill sprints (okay, trudges)
  • 300x Merkins

The PAX took it in stride and shouldered their shields. A brief breather for everyone at 10 and 20 reps for the Q to jaw on about the true events from the Battle of Thermopylae and the crazy guys who held the line to their last breath. (Fittingly, they made their last stand on a hill.) The Q had other things planned but somewhere between the coupons and the history lessons the time just flew by. Next time we’ll up the pace…

NOR/COT: Prayers for families and the PAX who lead and serve them, that we would be courageous, disciplined and ready to sacrifice for things greater than ourselves.
