Mid-Year Check up

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 07/01/2020
  • QIC: Gravy
  • The PAX: Full Monty, Terminator, Dollar Bill, 50 Cent, Shirley

5 brave souls joined YHC despite the ominous warning that we would visit the wet baseball field. It was an exceptionally humid morning in the Badlands. Disclaimer was given and we were off. Theme of the day: we have made it through the first 6 months of 2020, and I am willing to bet that this year has not gone as planned for many of us. And we still have hurricane season and an election. How are we going to finish 2020?

The thang:
Mosey to first parking lot.
Long Dora.
Pax 1: Run to 3rd Island.
Pax 2: Exercise
50 Burpees (this was added on advice from counsel), 100 Hand Release Merkins, 200 Hello Dolly

Mosey to Bear Crawl Hall- Bear crawl to first light, lunge to bleachers.

At bleachers: 30 Step ups, 30 Dips.

Mosey to baseball field nearest the flag for Triangles.
Triangle 1: 30 merkins at right field foul pole, 20 merkins at left field foul pole, 10 merkins at home.
Triangle 2: 30 Squats at right field foul pole, 20 squats at left field foul pole, 10 squats at home.
Triangle 3: 50 LBCs at right field foul pole, 40 LBCs at left field foul pole, 20 LBCs at home.

Lots of great baseball mumblechatter during the triangles. I enjoyed it very much.

Mosey back to flag for count o rama, name o rama, and prayers/announcements.

YHC shared Philippians 3:12-14 as an encouragement for the rest of the year:

12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Thanks for letting me lead, as always it is an honor.

See you at the convergence at boondocks Saturday!

Gravy out!
