13 strong, fearless and determined PAX stormed into NoToll this morning ready to make the most of their day by starting it off right, this is how we did it:
Mosey to the back parking lot for COP, which included:
- SSHs x30 IC
- Copperhead Squats x12 IC
- Imperial Walkers x15 IC
- Merkins x10 IC
- Arm Circles – 10 small and 5 large, forward and backwards
- 5 minutes of LBCs – 1 minute to do AMRAP LBCs and 10 seconds of rest in between – some mumblechatter during the first two rounds but the last 3 rounds were quiet
Mosey around the field to the pavilion to partner up for some B.O.M.B.S. One partner exercises while the other partner runs a lap around the field, then flapjack. All in an effort to complete the following:
Overhead claps x 100
Merkins x 150
Big-boy situps (WWII sit-ups) x 200
Squats with a jump x 250
Slow-mosey back to the basketball courts for a merkin ROF, followed by 10 merkins together IC. Back to the flag for COT and BOM.
Name-a-rama, number-rama, and YHC took us out.
This weekend and yesterday were difficult for YHC. My mother has taken a turn for the worse and her disease appears to be taking over. Just another example of a real-life bomb being dropped on us. As you all know, being out there in the gloom with my F3 brothers was the best place I could have been this morning, and stepping out front and leading such a strong and determined group this morning. You guys took that BOMB and kicked its ass. Coming together at the end to crush those remaining 75 squat-jumps was awesome. Way to crush it men.
A big thanks to Hardywood for crushing the exercises and making YHC’s work today easier. I know there were others crushing those BOMBS too. Way to work.
We all have bombs dropped on our lives from time to time, but YHC thinks that is when our faith and inner-strength is tested, when our community and support system shows its power and when we come through those tough times, we are stronger, our faith builds and our community is tighter. As I mentioned in my prayer, our days on this earth may be numbered, but there is no limit to what we can do with those days. Make the most of your day today men!
No more Gumbo for you!
