The BackBlast:

What a way to end 2021 with this group. Proud of what we’ve accomplished this year. We’re all better individually because of the efforts of the whole. Missing a few of our regulars, safe travels for them as they make their way to/from friends/family or to simply unplug & unwind.

And happy to have #T-Bone back again, we hope his time in Evanston encourages this HIM to find his way down to F3 New Orleans & join that group. Free lifetime membership.


Warmups.  Mosey to wall for Balls to the Wall & wall sits (3x).   Mosey back to field for the work.


Partner coupon work.  Thrusters, squats, swings & chest presses.   Quick break to coupon suicides starting at 30 yds and moving to 40 yds to wrap it up.

COT.   We ended with a reading that reminds us that our actions, however small have an impact on those in our circle.   It reminds us that we have a part in the balance & equilibrium of the universe.


“Do you see how an act is not, as young men think, like a rock that one picks up and throws, and it hits or misses, and that’s the end of it. When that rock is lifted, the earth is lighter; the hand that bears it heavier. When it is thrown, the circuits of the stars respond, and where it strikes or falls, the universe is changed. On every act the balance of the whole depends. The winds and seas, the powers of water and earth and light, all that these do, and all that the beasts and green things do, is well done, and rightly done. All these act within the Equilibrium. From the hurricane and the great whale’s sounding to the fall of a dry leaf and the gnat’s flight, all they do is done within the balance of the whole.

But we, insofar as we have power over the world and over one another, we must learn to do what the leaf and the whale and the wind do of their own nature. We must learn to keep the balance. Having intelligence, we must not act in ignorance. Having choice, we must not act without responsibility.”

Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore
