UNC has designated Tuesday, October 12th as a Mental Health Awareness day. We should follow their cue and take a survey of our own mental health. Life in a pandemic can be extremely difficult. What with work, family and all of the other responsibilities we take on in our community. Make sure you are taking care of yourself. If you have the opportunity, reach out to someone you haven’t seen in awhile to make sure they are good too. Earlier this year I reached out to my high school cross country coach. I hadn’t spoken to him in over 20 years. It was great catching up with him to make sure he was doing OK. You will never regret picking up the phone to have one of these conversations.

Warm-Up:

  • SSH x 15
  • WMH x 15
  • Monkey Humpers x 15
  • Mountain Climbers x 15
  • LBC’s x 15

Main Event:

  • PAX made their way to a pile of the heaviest cinder blocks in North Carolina and so began an epic battle of mind over matter.
  • Colt 45’s (15 low, 15 high, 15 full)
  • Recovery jog around the school
  • Colt 45’s (15 low, 15 high, 15 full)
  • Recovery jog around the school
  • At this time Nitro had an excellent question about posture and cinder blocks. There seemed to bee some strong interest in the topic amongst the PAX. I sensed that maybe a back injury was on the horizon for one of us, so I called an audible.
  • 15 Block Urkins, 15 block squats, 15 Mountain Climbers
  • Recovery jog around the school
  • 15 Block Urkins, 15 block squats, 15 Mountain Climbers
  • Pax then placed the blocks back where they found them
  • Peoples chair – each PAX counted to 15 while holding the position until all PAX completed the count (2x)

Mary:

  • Ring of fire Merkins
  • American Hammers
  • Fergie’s – An erotic leg exercise proposed by Quicken and enjoyed by all. There was some initial hesitation among the PAX to share how much they enjoyed these exercise, but this resistance was quickly overcome. Well done Quicken!
  • Marky Marky Planks
  • Monkey Humpers

Announcements:

  • UNC has designated tomorrow as a Mental Health Awareness Day. The pandemic has made the last two years an extremely difficult time to navigate. Take a moment to reach out to friends and other PAX that you haven’t seen in awhile. Make sure they are doing OK. It only takes a minute to let someone know you care about them.
  • People can be very good at disguising how they really are doing.
  • Mystery Q month at #thethicket in November, contact Maraschino if you’re interested.
