On Monday YHC answered Dri-socket’s call to lead the Q for CAT. As YHC’s luck will always and forever be, at 7:00 pm last night YHC started to feel terrible. Body aching, headache, etc….but that wasnt going to stop me from honoring the commitment to lead. With a couple of Tylenols, a gatorade, and a weinke YHC strolled into CAT looking for some men ready to work. As usual, the CAT pax were ready to push themselves. 7 men were on hand. Mumblechatter started early. Ken Doll was there and that made me nervous whether he is Nantan or not.
Weather was 72 degrees
Here is how it went down:
Baby arm circles x10 each side IC
Overhead claps x15 IC
Hillbillies x15 IC
Slowsey to lower field. Grab blocks and circle up on the field.
1 pax AMRAP squats with YHC’s 45lb GR1 bag on their back until round is over. The others will complete the below 3 exercises and then bear crawl around the circle and the next pax in line will start squats. Once all pax have squated, we switched to Bag swings. Then back to squats.
20 incline merkins
20 curls for the girls
20 shoulder press
Leave pavers and bear crawl around the circle until the next person gets to the ruck after a full rotation.
Next round 19, then 18, then 17. All reps completed in 45 minutes. Excellent timing and planned workout by the genius Q.

Injured Pax – stay involved
Luke 9:57–58 (ESV)
57 As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”
Uncertainty is a difficult thing to bear. We want to know where the provision is going to come from or if we’re going to die of this disease or how this child is going to turn out or if our job will still be there next month.
But as we see in Luke 9:57–58, Jesus makes it clear that his disciples must be able to bear uncertainty if they are to follow him.
“I will follow you wherever you go.”
I’m sure that whoever made this public declaration to Jesus was sincere. They likely had heard him preach and seen him perform amazing signs and wonders. As Jesus’s fame increased, so did the number of his would-be disciples.
What the person might not have known was that at that moment Jesus was homeless. Jesus and his cohort were traveling south from Galilee. He had set his face to go to Jerusalem, where his resolute purpose was to die. But to get there he had to travel through Samaria.
One of the struggles that I often have is in dealing with Uncertainty. I worry about my next paycheck, how my kids act when I’m not around, if I am going to maintain my health, will my family stay healthy, etc. The truth is, my worrying will not actually prevent anything. Yes it will make me aware that I need to stay focused on career, parenting, marriage, health, etc. but actually making myself sick because I worry is hurting me and not helping me. I found it sobering that this guy in the article spoke up and said he would follow Jesus even when he had no idea where it would lead him or how hard it would be. He had faith that God’s plan was greater than his plan. My goal is to be better and believing God’s plan is greater than my plan.
