I was sad that no one joined me in some reflectful EC at 4:40. I was happy to see that Thirteen PAX beat the fartsack this dreary morning, so there was more personal attention for everyone and some great 3rd F. We got right to it with a quick Disclaimer and no FNG’s. So before the real rain came down we started our Warm-Up.
SSH – 20
Good Mornings – 20
Don Quixote – 20
Low Slow Squats – 20
After a nice warm-up the PAX did one lap around the school then PLANKED for the six, after which we started on the meat of the workout. I had a couple of other things in the workout bag as we had never done what I was planning and was not sure how long it would take, as it turned out the plan worked perfectly. So after the lap around the school I had everyone gather round and told them about Hindenburg BLIMPS.
Modified version of BLIMPS. Done on a field. Perform exercise at corner #1, sprint to corner #2, perform exercise. Sprint to corner #3 perform exercise. Then to corner #4, exercise and then back to corner #1. Plank it up until all have finished. Thats one round. Round 1 – 10 Burpees; Round 2 – 20 Lunges; Round 3 – 30 Imperial Walkers; Round 4- 40 Merkins; Round 5 – 50 Plank Jacks; Round 6 – 60 Squats. Headed over to the Flag and it was 6:15.
Countorama, Nameorama and Prayer Requests: Grout’s 2.0, Drillbit, Kevlar, spoken and unspoken prayers.
Moleskin: Another spectacular day the started with time spent this morning with some HIM’s exercising and getting some fellowship. I just wanted to put it out there that PAX that have not Qed or only Qed once or twice are really missing out on some of the best parts of this experience. To be there and help guide and support others, especially at this time of year, but also throughout the year. Here are a few verses to ponder as we pass through the spring of 2020.
James 1:27 “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
James 2:14-17 “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
Hebrews 13:16 “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
First John 3:17 “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”
Philippians 2:4 “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
Matthew 25:35-40 “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”
