Partner up, grab a CMU, and dont let it go till the Mary. One partner does the 100/150/200 with a CMU while the other backpedals 20 yards with the CMU, does other part, then walks back with the block (Walk/thing/walk). Then switch.

Been studying Creation which led to the study of what classifies an item to exist. Does something exist because it is material (you can touch, see, smell it) or is it functional (it has purpose or function)? Made me think about Faith. What does it mean for your faith to exist? If your Faith has no function or no purpose, how can we say we have Faith? Live your life and walk your walk to where your Faith has function and purpose. You’ll never have to question its existence.

Counting in cadence becomes increasingly difficult as the workout progresses. It also becomes increasingly comical during the pains of Mary.

Upcoming Convergence on the 4th. 2.0s welcome!
