Lunge walk up the berm, Al Gore til all in.

The Thang: 

Dora 1-2-3 – Pair off, one partner grabs a paver
Derkins x 100 (feet on paver)
LBCs x 200 (holding paver at chest)
Squats x 300 (holding paver over head, in front, or against chest)

While one partner starts exercises, the other partner explores the parking lot: Run to first island, backwards run to second island, side shuffle across, forward run to first island, side shuffle across, sprint back to berm. Couples flapjack exploring and exercising until all reps complete. Plank until all in. PAX valiantly helped one couple finish their last 30 squats by each of us doing an additional 30 squats.

Paver Indian Run – PAX line up single-file, with a paver for every 3-4 PAX. Mosey around building, passing pavers back. Once last PAX in line gets paver, sprint to the front. PAX completed one round (two laps around building), and YHC, for one, was smoked.

Bear Crawl Shuttle Runs – Using parking lines, PAX bear crawl up one space, run backwards to beginning. Bear crawl up 2 spaces, run backwards to beginning. Etc up to 4 spaces. PAX completed one set and then circled up for Mary.

COT / BOM: YHC (incorrectly) quoted Paul with saying “Husbands, live with your wife in an understanding way.” That’s actually from 1 Peter 3:7, but YHC didn’t have his phone and winged it (good strategy!). We are called to honor, love, and serve our wives. YHC encouraged the PAX to make an effort today to do something to honor their wives. My wife, for one, has sacrificed sleep to care for our foster child so I can get up and come to F3, and YHC is grateful.

Bonus reading:

“Marriage is a Team, not a Community. It requires Proximity and purpose to succeed. It transforms a man from a selfish Happiness-junkie into a selfless Joy-seeker. The Q knows if he fails at his marriage, nothing else he does will matter.”

Moleskin: YHC was glad to see Granola in the wild, but after the slowest ABC’s of all time, YHC regrets various life decisions. YHC is brainstorming ways to incorporate Swiper into the next Dora 1-2-3.
