243 Chinook squats
P2: Bear crawl down stairs, star jump at bottom, crawl bear back up
76 Kaboom burpees
P2: Crab walk down stairs, star jump, walk crab back up
56 Dive Bombers
P2: Lunge down stairs, star jump, hop back up
P1: 13 No Surrenders
P2: 13 WWI sit ups
Pick up six on exercises and we all mosey to the bottom of stairs. PAX partnered up again and ran Ollie Norths across parking lot, flapjack and back to start.
YHC had PAX hit their six for some celebratory Alphabet spelling the following:
- Declaration of Independence
- Founding Fathers (?) PAX may need to correct since YHC’s slept since then
Several of the PAX and YHC then struck on an out-and-back 5K “fun” run back towards White Rock Lake.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out and noted we need to remember our freedom that was given to us to all those that gave the ultimate sacrifice and to the Founders of the country. Without this freedom we would not have the ability to do many of the things we take for granted on a daily basis.
YHC was very excited for the PAX to get started until he arrived and noted the gravel on the workout surface instead of concrete. This was an overestimation of the City of Dallas given its propensity to spend millions on parks & rec or at least bike trails. Anyway, the gravel spawned all sorts of love for YHC as many PAX were without gloves. The Chinook squats were a hit (mostly from the feedback the following morning) as were the No Surrenders, which were quite a bit of torture on the gravel. The significance of the reps is as follows: 243 – years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence; 76 – signed in 1776; 56 – number of signers of the DofI; 13 original colonies
YHC noted that Ollie North’s need to be run over a much longer distance for penalty merkins to be effective. PAX learned that spelling is not one of YHC’s strong suits during the Mary.
Following the COT, several of the PAX joined YHC for a 5K fun run down to the lake and back. A considerable amount of reflection was given to the decision to run about the 2k in at which point visions of cold beer kept us going. The run was about group cohesion and not leaving the six.
A special thanks to “DJ” Icebox for providing the festive and patriotic playlist and to Sex Panther for bringing the post-workout beverages!
1. Happy 4th of July!
