Dr. Seuss made an appeal last night for a fill-in Q and I was happy to have the honor. There’s a nasty bug going around so stay healthy brothers.
With not much time to prepare, YHC had each HIM call out and lead a warm-up exercise. There were 5 of us, so it worked out well. We did the pledge and found our way to the parking lot on the other side of Goat Island via some mosey, bear crawl, Dan Taylor’s, karaoke, crab walk, and more mosey. While on the journey I asked each PAX to think of an exercise that they wanted to improve on and get better at doing. We partnered up at the lot and with one running up one side, sidestep left, nur back, sidestep right……the partner did the exercises we chose as needing the most improvement. 100 Merkins, 200 American Hammers, 100 Protractors stopping at 10, 45, 90, 45, 10 = 1 count. We then moved to 11’s with the final two exercises that were called out, Burpees & V-Ups. Mosey backed to the start and did some ab work to fill out the time.
I left everyone with one thought, when I was competing in triathlons it was important to train your weakness and race your strength. That is why we picked exercises today that we wanted to improve upon. It’s comfortable to do the things you are good at and the things that take the least amount of effort, but to truly grow and improve we need to do the things that challenge our bodies the most. Of course the same goes for all aspects of our lives. Find the part of your life that you want to improve the most and focus some extra time in that area. And if you have a strength or something you are really good at, share that with those who might need it the most.
Prayers for Top Hat and his family after the loss of his father this week, for the family that Tiny Tim knows that lost their 19-year-old girl after being involved in a head-on collision, and for the leaders of our country who we pray remain focused on serving their country and not their personal gains.
Enjoyed the warm 60 degree weather and my brothers who joined me this morning.
