  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Crotchless, Sasquatch, Roddy, Feud

4 HIM of Fleming Island posting in the gloom at Asgard, curious as to what YHC meant by his Q clue on the Slack channel.  YHC must give the pax credit, they posted despite knowing the mistake they made by leaving a Q spot open while he was still in the midst of the MABA challenge.  While burpees wasn’t the main theme of this beatdown, there were still burpees to be had.  

COP- 

  • SSH x46 IC (for our newly inaugurated president)
  • LBAC forward/backwards x15 reps IC
  • Squats x10 IC
  • Carolina Dry Docks x10 IC
  • BBSU x20 OYO
  • Lunges x5 OYO (ct one leg)

The Thang

Couple members of the pax were reminiscing of our early days of Asgard and wondered how far they’ve come.  One way to find out was to ask an old friend: Fat Amy..  Just like the first time the Asgardian pax met Fat Amy, we exchanged kettle bell swings with Carolina Dry Docks, and we added a lap round the parking lot for fun.

For time:

  • 50 squats
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap around the parking lot
  • 40 BBSU
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap
  • 30 lunges (count 1 leg)
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap
  • 20 Carolina Dry Docks 
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap
  • 10-meter bear crawl
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap
  • 20 CDD
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap
  • 30 lunges (remember, count 1 leg)
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap
  • 40 BBSU
  • 10 burpees
  • 1 lap
  • 50 squats

COP II

  • Bunch of stretches to cool down

Great work by the pax as all finished the circuit with time to spare.  Those that chased Fat Amy the first time, improvements were made! Crotchless took home the gold by shaving over 3 minutes off his time in August:

PAX Aug 2020 Jan 2021
Crotchless 26.79 min 23.14 min
Feud 26.46 min 24.31 min
Sasquatch 27.99 min 26.53 min
Roddy NA 29.49 min

 

COT/BOM

YHC had referenced the inauguration earlier in the beatdown.  He had wanted to see the inauguration, but by the time he tuned in, President Biden was already in the middle of his speech.  The 46th president talked a lot about unity.  YHC truly hopes that this can happen, however, the disunity that is going on in the country today goes way beyond politics.  YHC firmly believes that what is going on is a spiritual battle.  The evil one knows, the best way to attack and destroy is to divide and conquer.  As Crotchless pointed out, great civilizations often crumble from within versus being taken over by an outside force. 

If we are to “move forward” and “united” as President Biden alludes to, we as a people will need to learn to forgive.  While I do believe in justice, I also believe in mercy and forgiveness.  Both sides will need to learn to forgive if we are to move forward.  This will take time, and quite honestly, it doesn’t look good.  But, in addition to hoping and praying, we need to teach and demonstrate mercy and forgiveness to those who may have wronged us.  Set the example to not only them, but those watching us in our sphere of influence. 

…if one has a complaint against another, forgive each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgiveColossians 3:13
