-Both Optimus and I quietly wished the other would text saying they weren’t coming, but alas we both showed and both gave it all we had

-The field we work on has sprinklers that activate sometime in the middle of the workout, Optimus got a steady blast to the front while doing dead lifts, while I got an enema from it during one arm snatches that apparently was a sight to see.

-I will say the run, while soaked head to toe, when it was ~45 degrees helped me finally get my mind in the mode of cold training which we will need to prep for any event in the next 6 months especially the Heavy in Charleston

-All I could think of during the sprinkler baths is that Cadre Geoff would take great pleasure in witnessing it

-I am extremely grateful for Optimus dedication to setting these trainings up on Monday and Wednesday, I know I am getting physically stronger from it, which I needed as I do not like to lift, sorry Hoff but it is true. Knowing that he needs a partner to push him in his training for Selection in April gets me out of bed and into the sprinkler

-Hope to see others joining us soon
