WARM-O-RAMA:

The PAX was rambunctious this morning.  Chapter 11 emerged from his vehicle asking Doubtfire “you got those gloves” as if there was some kind of deal going down.  Then, the whole PAX disrespected the Q by talking over the intro.  So, we started with 5 burpees.

SSH x 20 (4 ct)

Tempo hokey pokeys x 10 (5 each leg)

Tempo squats

5 more burpees because Doubtfire asked about them

Little baby arm circles forward x 10 (4 ct)

Little baby arm circles backward x 10 (4 ct)

Some Michael Phelps

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

Mosey to the flag pole

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Talked about Jesus asking God to take his cup from him before his crucifixion.  Shows humanness and that, if it is okay for Jesus to struggle with God’s plan, then it’s okay for us to struggle as well.  But, the key is the rest of Jesus’ prayer that God’s will be done and not his own.  Keep in mind that your will may not be God’s will and that we should try to focus our prayers on God’s will, not our own.

12 in the PAX today
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Be friendly. Wave at people. Smile at people. Give complements to people. Make someone feel special.
MOLESKIN:
So it was interesting that the BOM was about being friendly to people today. As I was setting up the work out, I was approached by a gentleman who jumped out of his car and raised his voice at me and said “what are you doing?” I told him that I’m part of a workout group and that I’m just setting up some cones to run between. He said “i figured you were part of that workout group. I’ve told you guys not to come up here.” He was very aggressive in his tone. My reply was very calm and apologetic. Although he started off very direct and pretty much rude, I kept my cool and was nothing but nice and agreeable with him. He has worked at the tavern for 20 years and doesn’t want anyone getting hurt on their property. I told him I can understand that and that we wouldn’t do exercises in the upper parking lot anymore. I was able to let him give us permission to run up the hill and through the property just not do exercises on the property. By the end of our conversation he was somewhat calm, but I wonder how the conversation would have gone if he didn’t start off so aggressive. I think we need to give people the benefit of the doubt that they are doing something good and not something bad. In his case I don’t think he thought I was doing anything bad as he knew I was part of the workout group, but I think he just wanted to show his chest and let me know who was in charge. I did However did forget to ask him if he would like to join us. If I see him again I certainly will.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
I forgot to mention this, but we have a charity kickball tournament on May 15 I would love to see an F3 team or two.

mosey to the woods for a little trail circuit around the 1mile Main line loop trail.

stopping to do calf raises on worthwhile roots, lunges up the big hill and squat walks down the steep hills. At each trail junction we did the following. 1) 5 burpees, 10 squats, 15 Merkins. 2) same but add 20 dry docks, 3) add 25 lunges. 4) add 30 SSH

We finished in the woods earlier than I thought so we did some sprints x4, side shuffles and karaokes in the parking lot to finish up.

Stop complaining
MOLESKIN:
As we entered the woods I felt I needed to tell people to be very careful on roots etc and don’t fall or twist an ankle. I fell immediately after saying it. They didn’t know that I am secretly training to be a stuntman and I meant to do it. Once in the woods there was a little troll that led the way. His name was something I couldn’t understand so he said just refer to me as the nightman. So I followed him and he led us up to the top of the hill where he asked for a troll toll. I offered up one of the PAX and the Nightman was delighted. Frosty…not so much. We could hear Frost’s screams as we moseyed further into the woods….Or so we thought. Coming up behind us at a furious pace was Frosty with a smile on his face. He defeated the Troll and was now wearing the Trolls killer looking shoes. They were pointy and had golden tassels on them. As we stood there admiring the new shoes that Frosty acquired, Tweet-E unceremoniously climbed one of the trees and started jumping from tree to tree shouting “do you think I do Peter Parker‘s just for fun. It’s training you numbskulls! If you did them correctly like I do, you could do this as well”. Bowflex pulled out his backpack full of Bowflexes and boomeranged  one at Tweet-E in mid air. He fell to the ground and landed in a perfect Peter Parker position. “It must’ve been the Zen Evo that gave you this ability to land so swiftly” quipped Bowflex as he caught the returning Bowflex and placed it in his backpack.
“We must move on as there are scary things in these woods” said Junk as he grabbed a squirrel off a tree limb and ate him whole. “Yes, we must move on, I have brownies baking at home and I don’t want them to burn” said Aladdin. La-z-boy, Ribbed, and Medic moaned “B-r-o-w-n-I-e-s” in unison. As we continued on our journey Cavalier mentioned that he was hungry and picked up a mushroom from the forest floor. “I wouldn’t eat that!” said Mayberry. Cavalier ignored the warning and took a bite giving some to Turtle. They both immediately grew wings and flew away. Perplexed at what we just witnessed we reluctantly moved on. We had made it to the end of the trail and somehow Biscuits sneaked by us along the way and was standing there with a basket. It was blossoming with beautiful big buttered biscuits. Proton exclaimed, “that is a big ole biscuit and took a nap in the parking lot using the giant biscuit as a pillow taking a small bite once and a while in his sleep.
6:15 had approached us quickly so it was off to work or for some of the Pax. Others stayed behind to have what they thought was coffee. Why would they assume a black liquid stored in a coffee pot is coffee? That’s on them, not me.
I hope you enjoyed reading about our adventures this morning. Till next time…drink more Ovaltine.
