Some progress in CF Leatherneck. Three officers who took it over are still here. Another officer here with me found a good gym, hidden away. Going to start running classes, asking for a Op Pheonix drop and getting a box built. I hope to follow through with a CF L1 while I am out here. We'll just have to see.
Life here isn't as bad as one would think. The mind can get the body used to about anything--just about. 51 weeks to go, so who knows.

Manas

CrossFit warmup x2
21,15,9 rep rounds, for time of:
135lb front squat
pull ups
7:49
cooldown: 10xKB snatch per arm w/38lb, the 10x w/54lb,2x10 kb swing w/70lb.

Performance so/so, three days in a plane seat, lack of hydration and poor meals.
It will be awhile before a routine is established, have to stay focused. Felt very good to get off my ass and do something other than haul around baggage in the rain and snow.
