Mosey to Walsh Drive – 20 SSH

Mosey along Walsh Drive to the large concrete platform near the parking lot (near area with many picnic tables). 

3 rounds of blast-off’s: BetaMax jumped up on the platform to become the space shuttle and RollBar led “mission control” on the ground.

All PAX held an Al Gore while RollBar counted down from 10 to 1 (While Beta echo’d the count, just like old school nasa before space shuttle lift offs.  At one, Beta shouted “blastoff!) and all PAX did a jump squat and landed to begin the next iteration and countdown.

Pre-Thang: 100-yard dash + extra credit 

Beta had to cones at opposite ends of the parking lot (75 yards).  The PAX sprinted between the cones and once he 6 was in, a 10 count was called, following by a silly hard cardio exercise (e.g. burpees, mountain climbers, Red Bull smurph jacks, etc.) – this occurred for 10 total sprints.

The Thang: Group Coupon Fun

PAX we’re divided into two groups of four.  Each group took turns having one member perform each of the  coupon exercises 22 times, while they AMRAP’d the non-coupon exercise while waiting for their turn at “The 22.”

Blockees – Step Ups

150 yard sprint as a combined group

Vertical cross over raises – Flutter Kicks

150 yard skipping/Super Mario as a group

Kettebell swings – SSH

150 yards of running up/side/back on all the parking lines

Mosey to flags

Mary: Held a boat for 30 seconds, 20 Low

Dolly’s and we wrapped up with 10 American Hammers. 

COT: Carpe Diem and keep in step with the spirit.  Beta shared that he is focused on verse 5:22 (below) in that he’s seeking to bless and love others from the overflow of walking and pursuing the Spirit.  That is an example of allowing God’s love to pass through you to all your relationships.

Galatians 5:16-26

Keep in Step with the Spirit

[16] But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. [17] For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. [18] But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. [19] Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, [20] idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, [21] envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. [22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, [23] gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. [24] And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

[25] If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. [26] Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
