The BackBlast:

7 Pax took to the Gloom with “Rediscover the Eighties: Rock” in their ears and Dixieland’s supple pavement under their hands, feet, six, and stomach.  WX: 76 degrees, but still 94% humidity — doesn’t feel like the switch can get here fast enough.

The 5 Core Principles and Disclaimers were shared before Joan Jett and the Blackhearts opened the beatdown soundtrack during the…

W/U: Mosey with butt-kickers, high knees, karaoke, nur, and toy soldiers followed by 10x SSH and rolled right into…

The Thang:

Tabata-style workout with 5 circuits of 5 exercises (50 secs of work, 20 secs of rest, and 2:30 to complete the MOT after the 5th exercise). This version had decidedly fewer merkins than past Tabata beatdowns by YHC.

COT: CoT: Augusta half-Ironman is 9/25; 10/8 is the Laps for Life Walk/Ruck/Run on Siesta Key; 10/29 there are TWO events: 1) Alzheimer’s Association Walk (ask Manziel for details); 2) Manasota BUDS 20th Anniversary Buddy Walk; WildPax is the weekend before Thanksgiving (price goes up unless you pay TODAY; see the #wild-pax-csaup channel for details)); I think Fireball still has one opening for Ragnar (DEC 2-3) also.

TaPs: Pork Roll’s girlfriend, Devon, up in NYC works as an electrician and needs prayer over difficulties around the other union electricians and the work environment; Olympus’ calf is still acting up and needs healing; Sea Duty is making a push to accelerate by posting on weekdays (M/W) — prayers that it goes well with work/home; Mugsy asking for prayers for his brothers Ken and Andrew who are having a difficult time recently that there would be relief/improvement; Fireball is thankful for Baryshnikov getting work at the Ritz-Carlton and thankful for Pax who offered other opportunities as well; Big Popi asking for prayers for his mother and brother — mom living in a facility nearer his brother — sound like we may lose Big Popi to ATL sometime in ’23, but let’s help him accelerate until then!  Who knows what the future holds!

Hope you all had a great day!  Sorry for the delayed backblast!  Find someone to EH — I just had a good conversation with a neighbor who’s semi-familiar, but never posted.  We may also have a Down Under sighting at the Echo Chamber on Saturday!
