– 3x – 10 Burpees
– 3x – 10 Bonnie Blairs (count each leg)

Words of Wisdom :
“Be thankful for quality competitors who push you to your limit.”
– Michael Josephson

YHC reminded everyone about some studies that show that working out with someone else is better for your health, gives you better results, and leaves you feeling in a better mood.

Announcements : 
Most likely we will start next week’s Saturday workout at the High School track since we’ll need the 400m lap again.  Bring a coupon and a friend!
