1.       Bataan Death March

2.       Modified Ascending Curb Crawl

Starting at the curb, PAX bearcrawled across the parking lot to the opposite curb where they did 1 incline merkin. PAX then crawlbeared back and did 2 derkins from the starting curb.  Bearcrawl to the opposite curb again and then 3 incline merkins; crawlbear back and then 4 derkins.  And so on until the PAX made it to 11 incline merkins and 12 derkins.

3.        Field of Dreams

PAX divided into four groups (home plate, first base, second base, third base). PAX at home plate completed 15 burpees while PAX on first did AMRAP squats, PAX on second did AMRAP mountain climbers, and PAX on third did AMRAP BBSs.  Once PAX at home finished burpees, they moved to first base.  PAX on first then moved to second, etc., until all PAX had completed each exercise.  Rinse and repeat.

YHC currently is reading Prayer by Timothy Keller.  In the book, Keller discusses a letter Augustine wrote on the subject of prayer (Letter 130).  YHC’s summary of Keller’s summary of the letter:

Before you know what to pray for and how to pray for it, you must understand that no matter how good your earthly circumstances, they can never bring you the lasting peace, happiness, and consolation found in Christ.

We must see that our heart’s loves are out of order – things we ought to love third or fourth are often first in our hearts. Unless we recognize this disorder and how much it distorts our lives, our prayers will be part of the problem, not the solution.  For example, if wealth is our #1 love, then when we lose our wealth and pray for more of it, our prayers will just be worrying in God’s direction.  Our prayers won’t strengthen us – they won’t help us put things in perspective and bring us to rest in God as our true security.

Once we have made God our greatest love and knowing him our highest pleasure, that will transform both what we pray for and how we pray for it.

YHC enjoyed having two high school friends who now live out of town come this morning (FNGs Snowbird and Hydrant).

Gus and Doubtfire thought YHC’s SSHs weren’t fast enough.

YHC hadn’t planned to rinse and repeat the field of dreams, but the PAX excelled.

PLF followed the BC.  YHC forgot to bring cups.
