    Kitty’s Obstacle Course

    5 Principles

    We started this morning with some stretching around the shovel flag and worked through a few exercises in cadence- Side Straddle Hops, Windmills and Imperial Walkers. We then took one lap around the school. As runners finished, they assembled at alternating basketball hoops forming two teams.

    One member from each team ran the course – racing one member from the other team. When your teammate finished, the next person from your team started the course.

    While pax were not running the course, they were performing exercises called out by the Q in cadence. A new movement is called out each time a lap was completed- we made it through Merkins, Burpees, Squats, Big Boy Sit-ups, Klinger Kicks, and Mountain Climbers.

    The course had the pax weave in and around 12 pylons, hurdle the park bench, go over and under parallel bars, across the monkey bars, crawl under the 1st swings, weave through the 2nd swings, then leg lifts at the circle bars, high jump at the 3rd swings, walk the plank and sprint to the finish.

    Unfortunately, while hopping the bench, one of our pax lost his footing and took a tumble. Two members of the pax helped the injured pax to the hospital while the remainder of the group finished the beatdown doing 7’s of various movements.

    It is rumored that while at the hospital, the injured pax EH’d 3 doctors and relocated his elbow by himself. That last part may be slightly exaggerated, but this pax’s resiliency is particularly inspirational and it wouldn’t surprise me if this were actually true.

    There were many contributors to making sure the injured pax was cared for and that the remaining pax carried out the core principles which guide us. Thank you. We wish our friend well in a speedy recovery and..… oh wait, he just Q’d a ruck. Never mind- carry on.

    Joking aside, nobody likes to see his friend held back – especially because of an injury. I look forward to seeing you in the gloom again soon Gap.
