Backblast July 30th at the Posh

Pax braving the Gloom:


Fannypack (R)


Pew Pew





A little light rain didn’t scare off the HIM who joined me this morning.  Low numbers for the Posh but I didnt realize I was competing for PAX from the great Mcafee!  NO worries though we had a great workout.


Start with some SSH to get the blood pumping followed by some rounds of Sun Salutations.  Then a quick mosey to collect some coupons before heading over to the playground.


Thang 1:  The Playground Circuit

10 x 2 minute rounds all you got at different stations.

Australian Rope Pullups, Decline Wall Merkins, Lunge Jumps, Pullups, Arm Bikes, Incline Merkins, Boat Push, Jump squats with coupons, Overhead press with coupons all while listening to jams by Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and Dropkick Murphy’s.


Thang 2:  Catch Me If You Can:

PAX 1 drops and gives 5 burpees while PAX 2 mosey’s.  PAX 1 sprints to catch up then switch…and so on.  Headed back to the flag for some LBC’s and time was up.


COT with intentions.  Grateful to the PAX that joined me.  Good times had by all.  Quote from Seneca to wrap things up.


“It’s not at all that we have too short a time to live, but that we squander a great deal of it. Life is long enough, and it’s given in sufficient measure to do many great things if we spend it well. But when it’s poured down the drain of luxury and neglect, when it’s employed to no good end, we’re finally driven to see that it has passed by before we even recognized it passing. And so it is — we don’t receive a short life, we make it so.”

— Seneca, On the Brevity of Life, 1.3–4a


This was a reminder to focus our lives on what is important and use our time well.  Don’t waste physical time and mental energy on things that don’t add value to our lives.
