I was pleasantly surprised to have four of our brothers join me in the chilly gloom of Be The Change (BTC). You see my previous Q outings resulted in a showing of only one. However it was the fine and upstanding River Rat so I was in good company and I asked him to ruck as I like a few more PAX engaged for a boot.
With that said enter the thang: Unlocked the shoulders with an arms always up review of all the standing shoulder type work you can do that cause you to complain after 10 minutes. Thanks Pac Man! It was a real crowd pleaser. Hit a variety of walkers both Imperial and Hillbilly. I then introduced the PAX to what I call Jelly’s Jam. A minor modification of Jelly’s Iron Academy beat down that went a little something like this – 7 Burpees OYO in parking spot 1 lunge walk up to top of lot and mosey down to parking spot 3 (14 CDDs) then spot 5 (21 Low Slow Squats), then spot 7 (28 SSH), then spot 9 (35 LBC’s) and finally spot 11 (7 burpees).
I had the PAX cross the lot to the sidewalk and introduced them to the Book of Steve. 9 years ago I tossed the Book of Steve aside and picked up God’s word and chatted about who I was versus who I am now. As I chatted I introduced the PAX to the fork in the road decisions that happen to all of us and how making the right turn on the right fork makes all the difference.
Colossians 2:6-7 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
However, as we all know life is full of ups and downs even when you make the right choices: 7 Burpees OYO, mosey down the sidewalk turn right and 7 burpees OYO, mosey down the side walk and turn right, 7 burpees OYO, mosey down the sidewalk and 7 burpees OYO, mosey to our starting position.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
14 Low Slow Squats rinse and repeat of the right turns to the starting point.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
21 LBCs rinse and repeat of the right urns to the starting point.
John 11:35 Jesus Wept.
7 burpees OYO rinse and repeat of the right turns to the starting point.
You see life is not always fair and has plenty of roller coaster events, but you could not pay me to ride this coaster without God…the Book of Steve proved that failure. Slow walk to the benches where Irkins and Dips played a role with no particular count making sense to any of the Pax. A quick chat with security as we were challenged but played our Richard Murr card and invited him to join us. Not on the clock he said…I wonder how many of us have used that one. Any way….mosey to the other side of the building for some calf raises and wall sits then 7s down the parking lot and back with LBCs and Low Slow Squats. Ab lab rounded the morning out.
Announcements were announced and several of our PAX and others were prayed for as they go through family illness and other stresses.
So…it has been so long since I have written a BB that I don’t recognize this format. Any tagging of sites now eludes this RR as I enter the latter stages of life where I can own my technology challenges.
Smiley Face out!
