CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“You all know your injuries” past, present and future. But an injury doesn’t mean you can’t come out in the morning. An injury means “Modify If You Have To”, and if all you can do is walk, then we’ve all pledged that No Man is Left Behind so we’ll walk with you, or we’ll wagon wheel, or we’ll bear crawl alongside.  If you can’t do an exercise for what ever reason, talk to me, talk to others. I’m sure we’ll be able to come up with something suitably grueling that doesn’t involve shoulders, or hips, or knees.
Posting consistently is the name of the game, not what you do when you get here. Getting out of the Fartsack is the first step in mending the injury be it physical, mental, or spiritual. Just because you are injured, doesn’t mean you aren’t accountable.
MOLESKIN:
Keeping the routine and doing one armed SSH for the last few weeks has helped me get over my shoulder knack.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Today is 3/16 and we discussed John 3:16.  The world was broken in that time period like it is broken now.  God loved the world enough to send his Son to die so that we could be saved.  He was sent to save the world, not condemn the world.  The world is broken today too, God still cares and still loves us.  Take some time to show his love, and lead with kindness in this broken world.

Sir David Brailsford revolutionized the UK cycling by making them focus on Marginal Gains.  Big changes are hard.  Instead, look for lots of small change that you can compound over time to make change a process.
