PAX count 3: Fast & Easy, Mr. Wedgie, Natty
There is a difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference.  The little difference is attitude.  The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.  You are the sum of the people you are surrounded by most.  Stay positive my friends!
Prayers for healing for Herbie and Tractor.  Prayers for Mr. Wedgie’s friend Seth whose facing time in the Pen and that he receive the Lord’s message in guiding him back on the right path to salvation

Do I Need to bring the new Natty Rush next time to get more of you to show up?  Let’s grow The Brickyard and spread the Good News!

Mosey across parking lot, headed toward parking lot behind the school.  Stop at halfway point for leg blasters, all exercises done together: 20 squats, 20 lunges (10 each leg), 10 air squats.  Recover and repeat for second round.  Resume mosey to back parking lot for the Octagon of Pain.  Eight cones prepared in an octagon, each with an exercise at the cone.  Exercises as follows:

  • Wide merkins
  • Jump squats
  • Burpees
  • American hammers on 4 count
  • Flutter kicks on 4 count
  • Lunges (number of reps for each set done on each leg)
  • Dying cockroaches on 4 count

Pax partner up and pick a cone to start at.  Perform 8 reps of exercise, bear crawl to next cone.  Make your way around the Octagon and back to the cone you started at.  Meet in the middle of the Octagon (Pax finished about the same time).  Once in the middle, Q leads 10 wide merkins, immediately followed by 10 regular merkins, immediately followed by 10 diamond merkins.  Recover.

Pax go back to their original starting cone, repeating the routine this time performing 16 of each exercise.  No bear crawls, once exercise is completed, Pax run on the outside of the Octagon making a loop and going to the next cone.  Continue again until original cone is reached.  Pax lead Mary in the middle of the Octagon.

Mosey back to start point, and continue mosey over to splash pad.  Pax assemble along fence for pistol squats, 10x then switch legs and repeat.  Pax then mosey down small hill to parking lot and perform staggered hand merkins (one hand on the curb, one hand on the big ball).  Perform 10 merkins left hand low right high, then switch hands and repeat 10 merkins.  Three total rounds of pistol squats and staggered hand merkins, then recover and mosey back to start point.  (A Rod and Natty have impromptu jail break back to SP).
