Pre-Thang​: PAX split into three teams, with each team performing a Bataan Death March forapproximately ½ mile, with the trailing PAX performing 5 burpees before taking the leadposition.

Thang​:
This beatdown had the PAX working on switching gears while partaking in exercises at two pain stations. The earlier teams continued together for this three-team grinder, with one team acting as a pusher while the other two teams split up to each station. In between pain stations were progression cones, with the PAX running at 40% to cone 1, 70% to the second cone, and then AYG (All You Got) to the next pain station.

Pain Station 1:

  • Tempo Merkins – IC

Omaha was mercifully called and the PAX returned to the shovel flags.

Announcements/COT​:
“Switching Gears”As we go through life, pay attention to what gear you are operating in. Many of the men in F3 are operating in top gear, and that’s one of the things that I love about this group of men. But, we each also need to be sure that we’re making a conscious choice. Are we accelerating in some areas of our lives but stuck in 1st in others? Is our faith or spiritual life in the right gear? Are these purposeful choices, or is that our default? Step back to recognize, and don’t be afraid to switch gears in areas and see what that feels like.

Further, are we making purposeful efforts in our activities, or simply checking off another thing done? Make your time count, whether here at a workout, on a date with your M, or at home with your 2.0s. Aye!

​Announcements/Prayers

  • Several new AOs opening up, will be three options on each day. Check them out
  • Blood drive coming up on July 17
  • Prayers for Slick and his wife
  • Thomas closed with a prayer
