The PAX headed to the side of the court for the Pre-Thang.
The Pax proceeded to do 11’s. They ran to the opposite side of the court and did 10 burpees. Then ran back to the other side and did 1 merkin. The count decreased in burpees and increased in merkins until only 1 burpee was left. There was much complaining on the burpee side of the court.
One round was completed. Once done, everyone moseyed to the tennis courts flags.
PAX counted off into groups of three for a 3-Man Grinder. Station #1 was the tennis courts. Station #2 was the small playground shelter. Station #3 the push group.
Stations #1 and #2 counted out massive amounts of reps until their partner pushed them onto the next exercise.

I’ve been struggling with a project at work that has been getting me down. It has been a trying and painful experience. It has been tough to keep motivated to get the work done. Then I remember that a co-worker once told me that it was best to come to work in a good mood, because that is usually the best part of the day and most likely would go down hill after that.
Life and work is not going to be perfect so start your day with the right attitude and give yourself and those around you some grace when things go sideways.
Steeple took us out with a prayer.
