Weather 60 (shirtless run weather for sure)
YHC tries to keep up with doing daily Burpees, but lately has slipped. I believe it is the fault of these random weird challenges like running 500 miles in a month or doing 50,000 FlutterKicks in a month. Neither of which makes any sense. So, YHC broke out one of ChuckyCheese’s favorites. I even made sure to invite CC, but he said he was busy learning some new Nuclear jargon from Krispy.
15 IC Imperial Walkers
15 IC Reach Thru’s
15 IC Arm Circles
15 IC Love Me’s
15 IC Reverse Arm Circles
Mosey over to the Malloy parking lot
2 minutes of Curb Steps/ 1 minute rest/ 2 minutes curb steps
YHC then asked each PAXC to pick a white line in the lot and plank up. In a Temple style form we did 10 merkins/plank walk left to next white line 9 merkins/ plank walk right back to original line until you hit 0.
The flag was in the middle of WARZONE yard which becomes the hub. You do an exercise at the hub the run out to each corner do the same exercise and repeat until you hit all 4 corners of park.
1st round 10 Burpees(of course)
2nd Round 10 Leg Raises 90 degree
3rd Round Side Plank and knee to elbow using left arm down at Hub and right arm down at the corners 5 reps each
We are not victims of our thoughts. We have a vote. We have a voice. We can exercise thought prevention!
“Don’t talk to me”, we say. “I’m in a bad mood.” As if a mood were a place to which we were assigned, rather than an emotion we permit. Or we say, “Don’t mess with her. She has a bad disposition.” Is a bad disposition something we have like a cold or the flu? Or do we have a choice? Paul says we do. In 2 Corinthians 10:5 he says “We capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.”
Capture every thought– you get the impression we’re the soldiers and the thoughts are our enemies. The minute they appear we go into action.
Selfishness, step back! Envy, get lost! Find another home. Anger, you aren’t allowed on this turf!
Mutt and YHC decided to cruise the Turkey Trot route before the BeatDown this morning. Eisenhower talked a good game last night, but must have decided that the ab challenge was more important. Mutt did tell him we waited for about 15 seconds before we left. Not sure why but that was a rough 3+ miles for YHC!
LoveBug was putting miles in when we returned. (guess we didn’t wait long enough, 30 secs next time)
Wall-E and Sludge obviously didn’t do any early work since they were out front all morning.
CowBoy was actually on time this morning and got a whole workout in.
Miyagi must have borrowed CowBoy’s clock. He rolled in at the beginning of the Burpee spokes.
On a side note, Sludge was complaining because he might actually need a shower after this morning’s workout.
Wall-E called today “simple and effective, sort of like rat poison” not sure if that’s a compliment or not. He must want tougher workouts.
