As of lately the Saturday numbers have increased for #theherd. For now the Saturdays of only a few Pax are gone. The numbers are up, men are eager to get better and 7, including 1 FNG, showed up to do so today on what started out as a pleasant morning. But when the ☀ came out it got hot quick. The heat did not deter these men from putting fourth a good effort today. Come join us sometime and see.
After disclaimer and opening prayer the PAX mosied to the main drive for high knees and butt kicks. Mosey to the school parking lot and circle up for SSH, TT tunnel, little baby arm circles to warm up.
The Thang: YHC used a deck of cards with various exercises written on them and a parking lot which serves as a figure 8. Pax took turns drawing from the deck of cards. Perform said exercise at 5 different places in the figure 8 parking lot. 5 reps at bottom of 8. 10 reps at middle of 8. 15 at top of 8. 10 in middle and 5 at bottom. After 10 cards the Pax mosied to the brick pile for block work. Continue drawing cards with half of Pax perform exercise while other Pax do an exercise with blocks.
Mosey back to shovel flag for additional drawing from the deck for remainder of workout. Excellent work as always.
Announcements: trail run in Black Mountain, NC next Saturday. See Alter Boy fir details. Midlands tour next week. Daddy and me 5k next Saturday to benefit Midland Fatherhood coalition.

DEVO: Day 7: I declare that God has a great plan for my life. He is directing my steps. I know my situation is not a surprise to God. Even though I may not always understand how, He will work out every detail to my advantage. In His perfect timing everything will turn out right.
