Avoid what is strong, strike at what is weak…

THE SCENE: Comfortable day for a swim at Neverland, 70-ish with 110% humidity.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: There was welcoming and disclaiming – YHC made it clear that despite his magnificent physique he was not actually a professional.

SSH IC x20
Daisy Pickers IC x15
Imperial Walkers IC x15
Arm circles IC x10 (+ x10 in reverse)

Merkin-ish Mile-ish
Merkin 3/4 mile (one lap around track) – every 1/4 mile the PAX performed 25 reps of an exercise:
1st stop: Merkins
2nd stop: BBS
3rd stop: Squats

Dora 1-2-3
PAX partnered up and lined up about 25 yards from the gazebos for some fun with the most hated TV character of all time.
100 Merkins
200 BBS
300 Squats

At this point we had about 11 minutes left, so YNC thought some extra ab work  should happen…

As Zima prefers, Mary was dealer’s choice today.
No Fuego: Flutter kicks
Flobee: Freddie Mercurys
Tool time:  J-Los
Private: mountain climbers
Zima: WW1 sit-ups
Mosey back to startex.

6 PAX (0 FNGs): Flobee, Smee, Private, No Fuego, Tool Time, Zima

So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong and to strike at what is weak.
–  Sun Tzu, The Art of War

We all have strengths and weaknesses – we tend to rely on our strengths and ignore our weaknesses. Until we seek out and address our weaknesses, they will always exist.

‘When you Q it’s not about you.’ – but it can be… While variety in the workouts can be fun, and throwing in games and new challenges are always welcomed, YHC wanted to get back to the basics – running and basic bodyweight exercises. YHC can carry heavy stuff all day and move large objects, but the primary weaknesses were addressed today. Yes, Zima made everyone run. And YHC hated every second of it.

Prayed over Tool Time’s son, Knox, who is heading to Vanderbilt this week for some work on a congenital heart issue. Apparently not a ‘major surgery’, but we take nothing for granted – prayers lifted.

If you haven’t signed up for GrowRuck and are unsure about it, please make time to check the Fence Sitter Call tonight at 8 PM. If finances are an issue, talk to Bruce. If you’re just nervous, sign up anyway – if Zima can do, anybody can do it…
