THA-THANG:
Pax moseyed around the unknown official mileage of the track at Gaisman Park.  YHC wanted to show off the beautiful features of the park including 3 fully lit baseball fields that also have soccer goals, tennis court, pool, playground, running track(not a mile), and a memorial to those who served in Vietnam. To make sure the pax got the full experience we did the following:

Merkin Mile: Every quarter mile, stop to perform 25 merkins on YHC count. (100 total)
Squat Mile: Every quarter mile, stop to perform 25 squats IC. (200 total)
BBS Mile: Every quarter mile, stop to perform 25 big boy situps OYO. (100 total)

MARY:
We finished the very last set of 25 at exactly 6:15.  YHC has impeccable timing.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
6 pax: Shoestring(YHC), Squeegee, FourEyes, Bookworm, Mothballs, Park Bench

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC was in Puerto Rico the last week with my mom.  One of the things I learned was to be content and have joy where the Lord has me.  I can see how at 68 years old, my mom still doesn’t know what is next and what is her purpose or where her joy will be found. It was a reminder for me to find joy where the Lord currently has me.  He has a plan and that is for my good and His glory.  I can be ok with not seeing every inch of the plan but knowing that God cares for me and wants the best for me.  He wants more for me than I want for myself so I can rest that He is in control and find joy and comfort in that.

MOLESKIN:
Squeegee celebrating an anniversary today!!  TCLAPS to him and his wife!!  Mothballs is getting hitched on Saturday!!  TCLAPS to getting married and entering a new season of life!  Praise God for that!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
  YHC encouraged the PAX to identify things in their life that keep them from focusing on things that require their attention.  The race is long, so shed the weight that you can.

MOLESKIN:  Good reminder this morning why I love small workouts.  High hopes for Gaisman as a Thursday AO.  High hopes that they empty the trash soon.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:  None.

9 Rounds with Shoestring – Black Ops

THE SCENE: Gaisman Park!  YHC had to walk 100 yards to the park.  I now know how Slicnut feels being able to walk into the gloom.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER

WARM-O-RAMA:

SSH IC x20
Daisy Pickers IC x20
IW IC x20
Windmills IC x15
Mosey to the playground

THA-THANG:
YHC was inspired by a Bruce Lee workout I found online but slightly modified so death did not come upon us.  Even with the modification, death nearly came upon us.
9 Rounds with Bruce Lee
The goal was to complete 9 rounds of the following:
– Pull-ups x10
– Hanging leg lifts x10
– Burpees x10
– Squats x10
– Box Jumps x10
– 200m run
Rinse and repeat…

(Side note: Nobody finished 9 rounds.  Four Eyes was the closest with 7 I think. We also modified the pull-ups.  We all nearly died.)

MARY:
Flutter Kicks IC x20
American Hammer IC x20
Gas Pumps IC x15

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
4 PAX came to Nutbush, a.k.a Berclair to do hard things.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC read from Matthew 16 where Jesus asks the disciples, “who do people say I am?” and “who do you say I am?” There was a conversation YHC had with the 2.0’s the other night that led to personal conviction.  Do I truly live my life in a way that declares what I say with my mouth of who Jesus is?  Do I actually act like Jesus is the Son of God?  Do I love others in light of what the gospel has done for me?  Not always.  It was a gut check for my spirit when talking with my 2.0’s and motivation to set an example for them on what a life with Jesus as Lord really looks like.  I fail often, but I hope to be a better example and leader.

MOLESKIN:
Sooooo thankful that the pax came and worked out with me.  We took our picture in YHC’s front yard with the Puerto Rican flag in the background.  Great Black Ops at Gaisman.  This AO has tons of potential.  I believe Heavyweight, Meatball, and Bookworm would love the convenience and so would YHC!!

I also loved the smaller workout of 4 pax!  Led to some awesome and honest prayer request.  Really encouraging watching Teacher’s Pet smack around that routine! There was ZERO quit in him today!
