Goal is a total count of 2000 total reps as a team. The full pax does 100 reps each of a called exercise, then runs a 100m lap back to a point where they gather again for the next called exercise. There will be 10 cycles, which get you to your number. Teamwork matters. The first nine cycles end when the FIRST person gets to 100, which keeps the pax together. The last cycle, which is always burpees, is done together (We ended up doing Burpees for a solid 4 minutes before time ended.
Cycles: 1) SSH; 2) Lunges; 3) Merkins; 4) LBCs; 5) Mtn. Climbers; 6) Flutters; 7) Imperial Walkers; 8) Squats; 9) Oblique Crunches – 50 per side; 10) Burpees. Named as year 2000 is within the time period around which the Millenial generation was born.
Let me say the mumble chatter was strong today, and mostly because Radio-Head saved me from being up close and personal with a “Land-Mine.” In this case it was a spent condom! I of course directed everyone to move several feet from that point! From that point forward, the barbs and jabs were flying! At one point I recall Mr. Clean threaten to stuff Geek Squad into that “Land-Mine”…and of course there were a few, “That’s what she said” as well. All in all it was a fun and enjoyable workout!

BALL OF MAN!
Came from today’s reading from “Forward Day by Day”: Psalm 37:1,3. Do not fret yourself because of evildoers; do not be jealous of those who do wrong. Put your trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and feed on it’s riches.
Most days I haven’t been out of bed very long before I catch sight of a headline on my phone or the front page of the newspaper and plunge headlong into fretting because of evildoers. This seems a particularly dark time in our country.
Surely, we aren’t supposed to let evil have it’s way while we sit back and wait for God to make the bad guys “wither like the grass.”
The psalmist’s advice is quite clear: Trust in the Lord. God is in charge of the endgame. Do good, boldly resist evil, and work for justice, mercy, and peace. We are reassured that “there is a future for the peaceable,” and “the future of the wicked is cut off.”
Trust. Do good. Don’t fret.
