THE SCENE: The Sandlot: Weather: 45


  1. Welcome: I am not a professional 

  2. You are participating at your own risk 

  3. You are responsible for your own wellbeing 

  4. You are here voluntarily, and you are not paying to be here 

  5. Know your limits and do the best you can, all exercises can be modified and are only suggestions.


WARM-O-RAMA:   SSH, Windmill, Imperial Walkers, Merkins, Squats, mosey to parking lot with numbers (AKA “The Counting House, ~0.25 mi), stretch.



Today we’ll pair two exercises together, one for even numbers, one for odds. Move from parking spots numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, as high as you can doing that number of the assigned exercise as you move from spot to spot.

Start on parking spot numbered “1.” Do 1 squat.

Run to spot 2. Do 2 Merkins. Then 3 squats. Then 4 Merkins…

  • Round 1: Odds: Squats. Evens: Merkins. 5 min timer.

Mosey to Stop Sign Hill. Stretch at bottom. Sprint to touch stop sign, mosey down for 4×4’s wait for six. Mosey to skatepark, use parking space there for Round 2.

From the weekly pre-blast Q-source selection:


Candor is a rare quality, because people are hard-wired to avoid the adverse consequences that often arise from knowledge of the Truth, whether it is their own knowledge or the knowledge of those around them. Leaders will hide the Truth from their followers to avoid Accountability for their own failures, but also for a less selfish reason: to avoid bringing them pain. Because Truth is Disruptive, a weak Leader will shy away from telling it. He will be less than Candid with his followers and justify it with the delusion that he is sparing them out of love. But it’s a wired kind of love that leads a man to tell a Brother that he is Right when his boat is actually capsized.

Look for a chance to speak the hard truth, and to invite it spoken, in your life today.

MOLESKIN: The Sandlot has so many options. Great work with the short bursts of hard work today.
