Awesome morning at the Shank today. Here are a few of the highlights.
-Coon Dog’s mumble chatter is unrelenting but went quite well with GD’s topnotch sarcasm. – I may or may not have implied there would be no burpees or merkins since I did the IPC the day before, on Monday…. We did 70 burpees and plenty of merkins (you can see Soaker for a refund). -Gravedigger was back out after a hiatus with an injury and hasn’t missed a beat! -Lego ran SL for several miles by himself, Soaker and I arrived late and ran 1. -I took a while to warm up and my in cadence counting, i.e. stopping at random numbers and not varying the tone/volume when I intended for the pax to stop. Also, assigned varying rep count numbers that were difficult to remember and easily confuse myself and this bunch. -Great fellowship and some pretty good work was had by all! Now let me see how much of this workout I can accurately recall.
One Minute Warning:
The weather: 60ish
Warm up Mosey Lap and Circle up
SSH X 12 IC, 5 Burpees, Michael Phelps X 12IC, 4 Burpees, Imperial Walkers X12IC, 3 Burpees, Air Squats X 12IC, 2 Burpees, Merkins X12IC, 1 Burpee.
Starting on one of the soccer fields we did suicide runs between 7 light poles that were about 30-40 yards apart. At each light pole on the down run perform 3 burpees and 5, 2 count Mt. Climbers. At the start of each “back run” perform a core exercise, laddering up with another core exercise on top of the previous, for each of the 7 rounds. Recover!

From a book i am reading by Matt Chandler called, Family Discipleship. A parent is the most influential person that a child will ever have (that’s a HUGE responsibility we have, especially fathers).. It’s never too late or too soon to disciple one’s family.
