Q: Toadstool

Toadstool welcomed 15 PAX to the Pit, including 2 FNGs. Gave the mission statement, disclaimer, and the Credo.

Warm-A-Rama:

Mosey around the pond with stops for…

Side Straddle Hop – 20 IC

Tappy Taps – 15 IC

Sun Gods – 10 IC (forward and back)

Imperial Walkers – 20 IC

Smurf Jacks, Red Bull Style – 30 IC

Pre-Thang:  Pax circled up in a tranquil green space and played…

-Spin the bottle! 

-Toadstool threw an (empty) bottle into the center of the circle to see at which HIM it would point. They are then responsible for choosing 3 exercises – arms, legs, abs.

Thang:

This beatdown was your basic two-man grinder. One man did the exercises while the other ran 50 yards and back.  Each two-man team was collectively responsible for doing 100 reps of each exercise, except burpees (50 because they are terrible).

-Merkins – 100

-Air Squats – 100

-Alternating Shoulder Taps – 100

-Bobby Hurleys – 100

-Burpees – 50

Post-Thang:

Soccer Penalty Kicks

-team of goalies and a team of kickers each rotating in one at a time. If you score a goal, the goalies have to do 5 burpees, but if you miss or the kick is blocked, then kickers have to do 5 burpees.

American Hammers

Announcements/COT:

  • COT:  SLOW DOWN and BE QUIET.

-“In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15

-Courts have recently closed down and the election season has finally come to a close, and like the early spring, I am now getting another dose of “the quiet.” For me, it is easy to get nervous when life slows down. I think about how to fill the hours, nervously checking my phone, scrolling through social media, etc. But these slower, quieter moments are an opportunity to get away from my phone, pay attention to my loved ones, and recenter myself.  Take advantage of the quiet moments in life!

  • Announcements/Prayers
    • Prayers for all those affected by COVID, first responders, etc.
    • Toadstool closed out in prayer
