From parking lot, we side shuffled from the parking lot to the trail leading to the football. At every lamp pole, we switched directions.

WORKOUT:

Starting at one corner of the football field, PAX did 7 reps of burpees, sprint the sideline, 7 reps of squat jumps, bear crawl the end line, 7 reps of hand release push ups, sprint the side line, 7 reps of clock lunges, and crawl bear to originating starting corner. Each subsequent lap would increase by increments of 7. This workout was inspired by whoever is Hicky75 which, if I had to guess, is Rossy.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: 

A PAX who shall remain nameless offered a bit of a PSA that perhaps consuming too much water and mixed with bear crawls might have one needing to evacuate one’s bowels in emergency fashion. PAX have been forewarned. Handle your business. BreakThru Urban Ministries serve on 30JULY was mentioned.

COT:

I offered that my daughter wasn’t going down for a nap and that she struggled. She didn’t want to and felt she was missing out on something. Lovingly, I assured her that one day she may miss that she got to take naps because one day she might not be able to. Fast forward to the kids doing what kids do and being loud and rambunctious. My MIL came over, smiled, and said “I miss that sound. My house is so quiet with all of the kids grown.” It gave me perspective to try and be present and relish the time despite it feeling chaotic or maybe even annoying. It was a gentle reminder to simply be present because when it’s gone, it’s gone.
