The Murph that was Not


Six of the faithful posted in the pre-dawn gloom at GridIron. It was cold. We started the day with a PreGame 3rd F study and discussion about the treatment of Knowledge in the Scripture.  The discussion was deep and meaningful, and there were many interesting interpretations and lessons.

We then  entered the Gloom with YHC at Q.  YHC had planned a Murph, and instructions were given to run to the track, do 1.5 laps, run around the school grounds the long way, and convene at the pull-up bars.  HOWEVER, we arrived at the former location of the pull-up bars only to find that they had be removed during the prior week.  

Improv time! This is how it went down, more or less (I am sure I am forgetting some things):

COP — 50x ssh, 25x slow squats, 12x merkins

Mosey to near side of 1st baseball / cricket field. COP with 25x slow American Hammers.

Mosey to far side of 1st baseball field. Chiabatta bear crawl alt. forward & backward.

Mosey to back baseball field. Chiabatta dips.

Mosey to the battery of 4 tennis courts. Elevens running perimeter. 1 corner was merkins starting with 10. The opposite corner was LBCs starting at 1. All were 4 count for extra fun.

Mosey toward school, stopping at basketball court. Plank walk 1/2 length of court with a burpee in the middle. Swith directions and plank walk the other 1/2 length.

Mosey to end of pillars. 50x Alabama prom dates.

Optional bear crawl about 60 yards along sidewalk to hedge row. Mosey back to VSF.

COT with Earthworm taking us out.

Thank you for the opportunity to lead! Jville

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1 et seq.
