Today everything was overshadowed by Sufferfest. We started with a fun, but hard circuit workout and also did our final rotation of cooking, climbing and Capture the Flag. However, all thoughts were on the impending afternoon event. To fuel up for Sufferfest we chowed down on Mac & Cheese for lunch. Coach Joe ate 3 full plates of it anticipating extra high fuel needs for the afternoon.
At 1:30, after an hour discussion about Sports Psychology, we headed out to the field with our rocks and water bottles. Our Sufferfest mission was: 100 Push-ups, 100 yard Rock Throw, 100 yard Sprint with our rocks, 880 yard run, 100 Burpees, 100 sit-ups, 100 Tuck Jumps, 100 Kikut Twists, 100 Rock presses, followed by a Mulch Bucket carry and 15 minute Rock Walk to the pond. It was HOT, it was INTENSE, but as a group, we CRUSHED it. The pond afterwards was the perfect ending… so refreshing!
For dinner, we dressed up in “All One Color”… we had oranges, reds, blues, pinks, purples, greens and yellow. Together, we looked like a rainbow. After dinner we treated ourselves to black bean brownies and frozen yogurt, followed by a Limbo contest and a movie. It's 9:01pm and my dorm of boys is sound asleep. At 9:11, I’ll be on the same program.
