Fitness, Fellowship, Faith

Day: June 13, 2018


Weather gave us a break at Midoryama, prob for last time for a while.  17 pax gathered for a good time.  Pledge.  Tool time takes off for a run, for the rest of us it went like this.

Merkins, LBC, Squat, Burpee 4 each to start.  Mosey to soccer field.  QIC had separated a deck of cards in three stacks including jokers (how many jokers in a deck?)  One stack was placed at one sideline, one in middle, the other at far sideline.  Spade=burpee, heart=merkin, club=squat, heart=LBC, Ace 15, king, 14, queen 13, jack 12, joker = run across front of neighboring field up the hill in the corner and back.  We started by drawing one card at near sideline performing task and then moving to the middle, and then far sideline.  Take two cards at each sideline to draw down stacks evenly.  Pax swore I replaced some cards with spades for extra burpees, truth never be told.  Somehow jokers kept appearing, again never know the truth.

Took a while to get through the deck, but we had a few minutes to spare, so we moseyed to near turd shack, for some wall planks.  Feet on the wall no more than 18 inches high and in plank position.  We started from the middle with two pax running around turd shack in opposite directions. Hold plank until your turn.  Chatter at all time high during this after the card beatdown.  Holding this plank is really tough.  Mosey back to the flag.

This was a really tough workout, everybody pushed it hard, great work gentlemen


Back at the flag we spoke briefly about decisions in our lives, and about how once we begin to feed our spirit with the good stuff, the evil one works that much harder to turn us from the good.  It is so important to feed our spirit daily and do our best to live well disciplined life.  We mentioned Galatians 5:22 Fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,s gentleness, and self control.
