As advertised, we are doing a string of pearls workout with the running distances tied to the Augusta Masters Course. The plan was to get through all 18 holes, but we ended up doing 9 holes. Each hole would have a distance and par tied to it. YHC took hole one which was a 440 yard par 4 and then did 4 different exercises after the 440 yards. Werkins, Apollo Ono’s, Copperhead Squats, and then LBC’s is what I chose and we went to 20 with each. Combination of some long par 5’s, short par 3’s, and medium runs for the par 4’s. Each PAX took turns with one hole. Room Service had us do 3 burpees as one of the exercises to represent all those 3 putts that we dread. Space Bar mixed in an ATM which would have made Honey Stinger proud as that seems to be a staple for most of his Q’s.
Post Thang: YHC had placed a left-handed and right-handed 7 iron by a tree and 4 golf balls. Time was running out, so we each hit a ball and then went to find them. Room Service hit a beautiful high lofting 165-yard shot which would have made anyone jealous.
YHC skipped Mary as we were running a little late after hitting the golf balls and trying to find them.
Announcements and prayers:
Beta mentioned some of the upcoming dates to save for the 4-year convergence 4/21 and the Brick Builder CSAUP on 5/23. Plenty of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd F opportunities for each of those dates. Abide Omaha is looking for volunteers for their 2nd Saturday food panty next Saturday from 9-12 and also Thursday from 1-4.
Whoops! Forgot my COT, and went straight into a ball of man prayer. The COT was supposed to be centered around this quote that I came across yesterday. “A smart person knows what to say. A wise person knows whether or not to say it.” I find the older I get, the more I think about listening and not always saying the first thing that comes to my mind. I have always been someone who says what they are thinking and I have several times that this has gotten me into a little trouble in various situations. There are 3 questions that I try to ask myself now before talking: “Does this need to be said? Does this need to be said by me? And Does this need to be said by me now?
Wentworth ended in prayer
