15 posted to Folsom on Saturday to help push each other. Todays workout would be about helping your brother to carry his burdens. Little did I know planning this workout that I would have a heavy one laid on me the night before.
There was some discussion about me being parked in the COT location. How was I supposed to know? We weren’t even in the right parking lot! So we started with a mosey to the correct lot and did the warmup there. We did some Don Q’s, sealjacks, merkins, lbc’s, and the scorpion(something I learned while posting at Oak Island last weekend).
Mosey to the blocks.
Partner up. P1 carries the block headed to the flag at the AG center. P2 does 3 burpees and catches up. Switch off until you make it there.
In the parking lot to the left we continued with the partner work. One partner runs around the island in one direction while the other carries the block and goes around the other direction. When you meet do 1 booyah merkin. Switch who runs and carries the block. Do this until you get to 10 booyah merkins.
Line up on the curb and get a new partner. At this point YHC talked about how sometimes our burdens are light and sometimes they are heavy and how we are called to help our brother carry his when it gets heavy. That is what we were doing by switching who carries the block.
Next we did some DORA. P1 rifle carries the block across the parking lot and back. P2 starts on the reps.
300 Back scratchers
Let’s head down to the fork in the road doing the same partner work that got us here.
At the triangle we dropped the blocks for some corner work. At this point there was a parade of seniors that were cruising the park for no known reason. They just kept rolling through over and over. Probably trying to figure out what those whipper snappers were up too.
Corner 1 do 5 squats. Corner 2 do 5 flying squirrels. Corner 3 do 5 crab cakes. Do 5 rounds going up by 5 reps each time.
Partner carry the blocks back to the storage spot and mosey back to the flag.

Prayer Request-Myself, Sarlacc, and Shatners daughters. Gumby’s mom, Space Jam’s dad.
Overall I can’t complain about my life. I don’t usually have a lot of prayer request because for the most part my issues seem light compared to what I hear others going through. Friday night I ran into the world trying to push against the things I try to teach my daughter in a hard way. For the first time I felt what has been described many times about the COT. When I tried to share it I broke down. I’ll be honest I can’t even remember the last time I cried. I mean years and years. It’s just not something I do. Much less in a group of 14 other men. I couldn’t help or stop it. This was/is a heavy burden! This is my daughter and the devil and the sin in this world has come after her. I cannot say enough about the men in that COT. They prayed with me and for me. They hugged me. They have individually sent me messages the last couple of days letting me know they are praying for us. Crap I’m about to cry again. I’m honored and thankful I have each and every one of you to help me carry my burdens and I welcome the challenge of helping you carry yours!
