I deviated from my original plan which required quite a bit of setup.  Time just gets away from you.  I’ll use that plan in the future sometime.

For this workout, I had a couple of things in mind I wanted to try.  I also tried to lighten the mood with some jokes during recovery time.  The pax come through nicely in that area.  Thanks to Abacus, Big Bird, McAfee and Kilo. I hope no one was offended…
