Another long week over in the world of recruiting. I called out some Dinwiddie H.S. football players to P.T. after they told me in a class talk that there is no way I’m tougher than Coach Mills. Needless to say they didn’t show for P.T. but 3 of their fellow classmates showed up thursday… I went a little extra rough in the wet mud and up and down hills…

You want to move slow, go GET UP! GET DOWN! GET UP! 4 of our poolees literally passed out from having the heart to stay in it up and down the hills all day. The new kids quit and I sent them to sit out. One guy had said he wants to be a Navy Seal. Good luck with that. I don’t think they will be coming back to P.T. anytime soon with the MARINES. I just wanted them to carry the message back to Dinwiddie that I don’t F around!

I ran a 280 Combat Fitness Test on jello legs the next day.

Monthly Challenge/ Tough Mudder

One thing I wanted to do in order to keep the website rolling a little bit in a positive direction and reach out to people is to post a challenge once a month. The challenge will be posted here by me and results/routines/videos/pictures etc. can be posted here by anyone willing to show a piece of themselves to help someone and better themselves.

Examples of the challenge are to see how many minutes you can knock off a one mile run in a month. See how many pullups you can add to your max in a month. See how much fat percentage you can shed in a month. Make suggestions to me for challenges and I’ll post them up. Give me some ideas. The challenge I’m posting for now is pullups. Flex arm hang time if you can’t do one. Post where you’re at now and update us. I’ll try to keep my stuff posted up there regularly. Also I plan to run this Tough Mudder in October. It is on a Saturday and Sunday the 22nd and 23rd so let me know if you’re coming.
