Another Soggy Slog

04-Aug-2018

2 ½ inches of rain overnight on top of already water-logged ground…the Grill was sodden. YHC arrived ~ 15 minutes early and searched for the driest 100-yard stretch on the field for the IronPAX pre-challenge. Not much luck, the stretch still had areas of standing water. Oh well, we would just have to resign to being soaked.

Five PAX arrived, disclaimer was given and we started the workout in the only dry spot – the band shell.

Warm-a-rama: SSH, Abe Vigoda, Grass Pickers, Plank Jacks, Best Stretch Ever

Off to the middle field of the park while taking some detours around pools of water
