THE SCENE: Low 70’s but a beat steamy; perfect beat down weather
WARM-O-RAMA: 4ct SSH (IC) x 25; 4ct Plank Jacks (IC) x 10; 4ct Iron Mikes (IC) x 5
THA-THANG: Mosey toward upper lot in figure 8 pattern stopping for plank jacks and squats at various intervals.
Infinite pain stations in upper lot – 6 cones spread out in upper lot creating a figure 8 course, PAX ran (OYO) to each cone and performed the workout listed – began at 20 reps and reduced by 1 at each cone; Cone 1: SSH, Cone 2: BBS, Cone 3: Plank Jacks, Cone 4: Iron Mikes, Cone 5: Squat Jumps, and Cone 6: Carolina Dry Docks.
Saint Patty Circle of Pain – PAX spread out around short brick circle wall; round 1: 1 HIM at a time performed 5 dips while the rest of the PAX did jump ups/step ups; Round 2: 1 HIM ata a time performed 5 incline merkins while the rest of the PAX did dips (or squats once arms were dead).
Bonus push – Indian plank train headed back toward AO; all PAX lined in single file line doing plank, HIM at 6 runs to front of line and resumes plank, rinse and repeat to move the train forward; paused for Rocky Balboa’s for 90 seconds; mosied back through the figure 8 circuit near AO pausing occasionally for plank jacks, SSH, and LBC. Arrived back at the AO with just enough time for some cherry pickers to end with a stretch.
MARY: No time for this.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Rambled a bit about the weight and magnitude of standing before other men and proclaiming the words given to us by our Almighty God, Savior, and Heavenly Father – humility should be felt and care should be had. Mentioned the imperfection of those sharing wisdom in our worlds, whether it is CNN, FOX, or Snapchat… they do not know all and are sinful people with bias. The only perfect man with all truth was Jesus and He is our only hope. So instead of seeking wisdom and guidance and opinion-verification from sinful, passing men, we would do better to humble ourselves before a benevolent and grace-filled Heavenly Father. Shared Psalm 139:23-24. Prayed for mercy, grace, and healing in our communities and throughout the whole world.
