Kotters and Birthday Q

After a seven week road trip during which YHC celebrated my 65th birthday, YHC felt it appropriate to see whether there was a challenging Q in me.  So, on a pleasant 70ish morning with the familiarity of my home AO and PAX we gathered to do some work.

After the disclaimer, we took a mosey around the parking lot and circled up in the upper baseball field for a little warm up:

  • 6 burpees OYO
  • 33 SSH IC
  • 5 burpees OYO
  • 15 Imperial Walkers IC
  • 6 burpees OYO
  • 15 Through the Tunnel IC
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • 8 Jack Webbs (YHC intended to do 10 but my arms had other plans)

Mosey to the Eagles nest:

  • 10 step ups each leg
  • Run to the wall
  • 20 BBSU’s
  • Run to the picnic shelter
  • 20 dips
  • Run to the wall
  • 20 Monkey Humpers
  • Plank on the six
  • R & R only this time doing 10 wall push ups (hands on the top of the wall, push up until elbows are straight without jumping)

Mosey to the brick/block pile, each Pax get two bricks

  • 20 brick seal jacks IC
  • 20 curls for the girls OYO
  • 10 LBAC in each direction IC
  • 20 curls for the girls OYO
  • 20 bent over brick flies IC

Recover bricks and mosey to lower baseball field for a little Dora

Pair up and complete the following exercises:

  • 65 Burpees (crowd pleaser)
  • 165 Merkins
  • 265 Squats
  • While one partner is doing exercises, the other partner runs to the outfield fence and does 10 LBC’s, then flip flop until all exercises are complete, LBC’s on the six

Mosey to the upper restroom shelter and grab some wall for a one minute wall sit

From Rick Warren’s Daily Devotions on September 25, YHC was really impacted by the title “Jesus turns your ‘Hopeless End’ into ‘Endless Hope’ and the scripture from 2 Corinthians 1:9-10 “This happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.  He delivered us… and he will deliver us again.  on him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us”.  When YHC went on the extended road trip, it was to sort out the tremendous changes in YHC’s life, having a wife of 32 years who died after a nine year battle with breast cancer and retiring from a career in pediatric oncology in the past seven months.  YHC has felt like YHC had hit a dead end literally and figuratively.  But God spoke clearly into YHC’s heart that he would use his power in my life, the same power that raised the dead and forgave my sin.  He allowed YHC’s situation to happen, he will take care of it according to his riches and glory.  Unfortunately, YHC was totally unable to articulate this at the devo time but here it is in writing.

Moleskin: YHC is eternally grateful for all the support my Speed Trap and Roost brothers have given me over the last three and a half years since YHC joined F3.  The past year and a half have been particularly challenging.  The tweets, texts, words of encouragement and prayers have been life sustaining for YHC, helping me get through times when YHC wasn’t sure I could put one foot in front of the other.  You have encouraged this old guy to press on and see what God has in store.
