The fighting Irish

Patterson, T-bear, Sheppy, Pammer, and Sac last St. Paddy's day What Shall I Say About the Irish? The utterly impractical, never predictable, Sometimes irascible, quite inexplicable, Irish.Strange blend of shyness, pride and conceit, And stubborn refusal to bow in defeat. He's spoiling and ready to argue and fight, Yet the smile of a child fills his soul with delight. His eyes are the quickest to well up with tears, Yet his strength is the strongest to banish your fears. His hate is as fierce as his devotion is grand, And there is no middle ground on which he will stand. He's wild and he's gentle, he's good and he's bad. He's proud and he's humble, he's happy and sad. He's in love with the ocean, the earth and the skies, He's enamoured with beauty wherever it lies. He's victor and victim, a star and a clod, But mostly he's Irish— in love with his God. Great work Monday!!! The Saint Paddy's workout will require stamina, a high lactic acid threshold, and a great deal of will. I tried to chose a workout that might resemble some peoples St. Paddy's day. ie dizziness, nauseousness(is that a word ?), slurred speech, and of course a good old fashioned "FIGHT" Before I post the workout, here is a little Irish humour.... The late Bishop Sheen stated that the reason the Irish fight so often among themselves is that they're always assured of having a worthy opponent. So without further adieu..... " Fight Gone Bad" Wall balls 20lbs, 12lbs Sumo deadlift high pulls 75lbs, 55lbs Box jumps 20" box Push press 75lbs, 55lbs Row (calories) In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. This event calls for 3 rounds. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of ‘rotate,’ the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point. Slainte Popeye
