Light dusting of snow at the Crown this morning. Spring is just around the corner.
7 PAX showed up for an old-fashioned slow burn.
Warm-o-rama included some stretching, imperial walkers, and SSHs.
The Thang started with:
25 reps each of declined merkins, squat jumps, pullups, and burpees. PAX were treated to a short loop around the parking lot between each exercise.
Then 1 minute each of: squat holds, side planks each side, and mountain climbers.
Continued with 30 reps each of declined merkins, squat jumps, pullups, and burpees. This time PAX were treated to a much longer loop around the parking lot between each exercise.
Then 1 min 15 seconds of: squat holds and side planks.
Ended with some crowd sourced Mary. Eskimo wins for making us drive the car.
I shared an excerpt from Dr. William Evertsberg’s sermon. The full version can be found here: https://kuc.org/sermon-archive/the-impossible-possibility-for-an-impossible-time-viii-mountains-beyond-mountains/
“Tracy Kidder’s book about Paul Farmer is called Mountains Beyond Mountains. It’s a Haitian proverb. Haiti of course, is a small island with large and endless mountains. When a Haitian says “The journey of life is mountains beyond mountains,” he means that just when you’ve scaled a peak and think you’ve reached your destination, you discover there’s another peak to scale just beyond. Life is one challenge after another; you’re never really finished; there is always more to accomplish, another hill to summit.”
You’re never really finished. Whatever the challenge, this group of men has been there for me, helped me push through, picked me up when I wasn’t at my best. There will always be peaks for us to climb, both physically and mentally. Can’t think of a finer group of men to help me up.
