Miles and pain

THE SCENE: Warm and humid



Rucked from the AO over to Lowe’s. From there, rucked to the pavilion for some PT work. 5 rounds of 15 reps of each of the following exercises:

  • Ruck Curls
  • Bent-over rows
  • Should Press
  • Step-ups on the bench
  • Derkins

Rucked back to the AO with just enough time for 30 Flutter Kicks (4ct. – ruck overhead).

Ended up covering 5.7 miles for the morning along with the PT.


3 men today for the ruck but several others were out there taking care of business with their HTL training (Cap’n Crunch, A-Rod, Abort, and Pfeiffer).


Not much of a BOM this morning, but we enjoyed the fellowship along the ruck. Lots of good mumblechatter about favorite flavors of Gatorade and Powerade (amazing how those conversations start when you’re dead tired and thirsty). In the spirit of Father’s Day weekend, we’re all thankful we have the privilege of being Dads – make the most of the moments you have with your kids and be intentional with your families.

Switch on your Brain – Mind Over Matter

2 Timothy 1:7 – God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind.   This islLinked to the concept that we are wired for love and natural optimism.

  • Our thought life actually changes our DNA. Thinking and feeling fear, anger, and frustration caused DNA to change shape.  Tightened up, became shorter, and switched off quality expression so individuals in turn felt shut down
  • We can control our reactions to anything
  • Stress level 1 is normal and brings focus. Level 2 and 3 become toxic
  • American Institute of Health Estimates that75-90% of visits to primary care are for stress related problems
  • We cannot control events or circumstances, but you can control your actions.
  • Good news is that this can be reversed by feelings of love, Joy appreciation and gratitude
    • HIV Positive patients that were positive had 300,000 time more resistance than negative patients

 When we operate in our normal love design in God’s image we are able to change the shape of our DNA forever.
