Mrs  Doubtfire continued recovery

People of Ukraine bravely defending their God-given freedom against the evil incarnate (I’ll repeat this until Good wins).

SUMMARY: YHC hadn’t timed this one out; only made it to the burpees.  A little too much running @ smidge over 2 miles.  Still a solid beatdown with YHC average HR @ 123.  Lesson learned – will pick up on this Thang in the next few weeks where we left off.
