Stinger instructs the PAX that he plans on moving a lot today and that he needs them to pay close attention and hustle and takes off on a solid paced mosey.

After a fast paced WOR Stinger leads the PAX on another brisk mosey to the tennis courts. Upon arrival they hear the sweet sounds of 90s rock jams but are anxious to see what happens next. Stinger divides the PAX into two groups and has them run, shuffle, back peddle and shuffle the tennis court lines for 5 rounds. With heart rates about optimal Stinger leads the PAX to the hill between the Swanson school building for yet another high rate challenge.
Pre Pre thang: PAX is instructed to run to the top of the hill, do 3 burpees and return to the bottom for 10 air squats. Rinse and repeat. After about 7 rounds of this Stinger can tell the PAX is good and warm;) after a 10 count the PAX is lead on yet another brisk mosey to the open field at the dark park
The Thang: Stinger instructs the group that they will be doing 1 exercise together at one end of the hill, when completed they will simply run to the other end of the hill (175 yards) to complete one exercise before running back for 1 exercise before they return for one more. Pretty simple right? In concept maybe but not so much physical application.

COT: (Summarized) Lent, the Christian tradition, of taking the 40 days before Easter in preparation started yesterday. It’s a traditional and customary to give up something in sacrifice for 40 days. Food, drink, TV, something big, something small it doesn’t really matter. Stinger also informed the group that the tradition calls for people to not only give up something but to give something. Time, money, patience, kindness, forgiveness, compassion. No matter what your creed is if any its good to ask ourself sometimes what do we need to focus on giving up and what do we need to do to give in a bit. Stinger asked the PAX to spend some time thinking about that today. Give up/sacrifice, give in/act of kindness PAX. I am and always will remain in service of the PAX.
