SOME YOGA MOVE, YHC REALLY DIDNT KNOW WHAT IT WAS CALLED, BUT IT INVOLVED STRETCHING…
Enough with the warm up we got some moseying to do, so we started off on our Merkin (2) Mile morning..
Title of exercises or routine
The first mile was your typical Merkin Mile as I wanted to get the heart rates up and a great upper body workout too.
1 Mile, every quarter mile the PAX stop, drop and give me 25 Merkins (yes, I did them too), rinse and repeat x4…
Just didn’t seem like 1 mile was enough, and since YHC had led the group out from base 1 mile, we had to make our way back..
1 mile, every quarter mile stop and do the following
Arm Circles IC x 20
Reverse Arm Circles IC x 20
Seal Claps IC x 10
Overhead press IC x 20
Mubble chatter ensued as YHC instructed the PAX the arms remained up during the exercise, something about a numbness in the arm region…
Back to base just in Time for MOM..

That concluded the mornings activities..
Read a book by Ryan Holiday “The Obstacle is The Way”, loosely based on Stoicism, or the endurance of pain and hardship without complaint. The idea is that he best way through an obstacle you face is to go through the obstacle.
We faced many during our post, we faced an obstacle of a nice warm bed we had to get out of to post, but we went through those obstacles. We made the choice to go through them, to go with our brothers and start our day together. The rest of the day we would face more obstacles, and we were prepared now to go through them as well.
