Mosey to Georgetown Elementary for the thang!

The Thang 1: “7 of Diamonds”

Using a square of sidewalk in front of Georgetown Elementary with roughly 100 yards between the points, the PAX went through 7 rounds of pain. In each round the PAX stopped at each tip of the “diamond” to perform the given exercise and reps. Mosey transitions

Round 1: 7 Burpees

Round 2: 14 4-Count Flutter Kicks

Round 3: 21 Merkins

Round 4: 28 Squats

Round 5: 21 LBC’s

Round 6: 14 Iron Mikes

Round 7: 7 Diamond Merkins

After first 4 rounds, we broke for a third F. I read an excerpt from “Wild at Heart” by John Eldredge

BY WAY OF THE HEART

“Which would you rather be said of you: “Harry? Sure I know him. He’s a real sweet guy.” Or, Yes, I know about Harry. He’s a dangerous man…in a really good way.” Ladies, how about you? Which man would you rather have as your mate? (Some women, hurt by masculinity gone bad, might argue for the “safe” man…and then wonder why, years later, there is no passion in their marriage, why he is distant and cold.) And as for your own femininity, which would you rather have said of you–that you are a “tireless worker,” or that you are a “captivating woman”? I rest my case.

What if? What if those deep desires in our hearts are telling us the truth, revealing to us the life we were meant to live? God gave us eyes so that we might see, he gave us ears that we might hear, he gave us wills that we might choose, and he gave us hearts that we might live. The way we handle the heart is everything. A man must know he is powerful, he must know he has what it takes. A woman must know she is beautiful, she must know she is worth fighting for. “but you don’t understand,” said one woman to me. “I’m living with a hollow man.” No, it’s in there. His heart is there. It may have evaded you, like a wounded animal, always out of reach, one step beyond your catching. But it’s there. “I don’t know when I died,” said another man. “But I feel like I’m just using up oxygen.” I understand. Your heart may feel dead and gone, but it’s there. Something wild and strong and valiant, just waiting to be released.”

Mosey to National Guard for The Thang 2!

The Thang 2: “Grizzcalator”

PAX Complete 1 Merkin with hands on the bottom step and then 2 Merkins with hands on the 2nd step, 3 Merkins on the 3rd step, etc., all the way up to 14 merkins on the 14th step. Total = 105 Merkins

Mosey back to the AO for “Johnny Cash”

And We Were Swerkin’

Date: 3/23/19

QIC: Chappie

Another double-digit Saturday at the Aegis AO in Georgetown, DE. Hey, this is starting to look like a habit. Now, its time to start getting in some regular coffeeteria. YHC, along with Doubtfire and his 2.0 (FNG Fly Catcher) enjoyed some o’ that 2ndF following Saturday’s workout. Always well worth it!

11 PAX posted for what turned out to be a sunny Saturday at the Aegis–a rare sunny day, albeit rather breezy. It seems to rain more often than not at the Aegis, so we’ll take the sun any day. It went a little something like this:

DISCLAIMER

WARM-O-RAMA:

  • SSH – 18 IC
  • Moroccan Night Club’s – 18 IC
  • Italian Night Club’s – 18 IC
  • Cherry Picker, Crab Flipper, Hairy Chigger – 18 IC (CPCFHC’s)
  • Planks Jacks – 18 IC
  • Imperial Walker’s – 18 IC

THE THANG:

PAX led to YHC’s vehicle where each one received a paver & a frisbee (seriously, a frisbee).

Mosey to North Bedford Street Park carrying said coupons, holding paver OH every other block. Once arriving at the park, PAX placed pavers spread out along a line perpendicular to the swing set.

From the line of Pavers, PAX tossed their frisbee. Goal: Toss frisbee to distant picnic table in as few throws as possible (like in disc golf). Number of throws = the number of Swerkin Rounds per PAX. First 3 rounds = 25 Swerkins, subsequent rounds = 10 Swerkins (see video above for Swerkin demo). About half the PAX hit the picnic table in 3 throws (3 rounds), other half in 4 throws (4 rounds).

  • Frisbee Seal Crawl back to paver line.
  • Swerkin Round 1 – 25 Swerkins
  • Paver Drag to park bench, OH Press back to line.
  • Swerkin Round 225 Swerkins
  • *Frisbee Seal Crawl to picnic table was planned, but due to the number of broken frisbees from the first round YHC had to Omaha: Paver Drive to picnic table. *Apparently frisbees have a weight limit.
  • OH Lunge Press return to line.
  • Swerkin Round 325 Swerkins (those things carry some suck factor!)
  • Paver Drag to park bench, mosey return to line.
  • Subsequent Round – 10 Swerkins, while 3-Round PAX did a varied mosey around perimeter of field: Nur, Karaoke, mosey. Upon completion of Swerkins, other PAX caught up on perimeter mosey.

In midst of Swerkin rounds, PAX took a 3rd F breather. Because of sore throat and oncoming head-cold, YHC had to abbreviate his 3rdF. Here’s the full account of what was prepared/borrowed from the Q Source:

PAX stacked the pavers and frisbees for post-workout pick-up. Shout out thanks to Chattahoochee for the reload assistance!

Still time on the clock, so we circled up for a little introduction of Jack Webb (1/4 ratio).

Mosey return to AO

NUMBER-RAMA: 11 PAX, nice double-digits again! Let’s keep up the EH’ing; it’s that time of year when it’s a little easier to get new PAX to post. Hit ’em up men! Great push by all, especially Doubtfire’s 2.0 FNG!

NAME-O-RAMA: Welcome to Doubtfire’s 2.0, Harrison, now known as Fly Catcher. This young HIM is, in his own words, a “bird nerd.”

BOM:

  • Announcements
  • Prayers

Coffeeteria followed at Dunkin. Nor worries, we ate healthy and had some good fellowship between Doubtfire, Fly Catcher, and YHC.

Honored to Q it up at the Aegis!

Chappie, out!

3rdF- ‘ Say Not’ from Mark Battersons book ‘Play the Man’  The hardest part of the body to subdue is the tongue. So, let’s issue a gentleman’s challenge. What we refer to as locker room talk, the Bible calls sin.    Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk of course joking, which are out of place.
     Here’s a simple rule of thumb: don’t say something about someone that you wouldn’t say if they were standing here. And above all, honor your wife with your words. If you’re going tot all about her behind her back, make sure you are bragging!    There is a powerful little phrase repeated in Scripture: “ say not”     Whatever you verbalize, you give power to. When you voice negative thoughts, you’re reinforcing what’s wrong. Over time, it often becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.    Instead of verbalizing negativity, speak words of faith.    Instead of verbalizing complaints, speak words of praise.   When God called Jeremiah to be a prophet, Jeremiah felt overwhelmed and under qualified. He used inexperience as an excuse, and God rebuked his excuse.    Say not, I am a child
So Quit making excuses!I’m too old.  I’m too young. I had bad parents. I’ve made too many mistakes. I don’t have the education. I don’t have the experience. SAY NOT!       What needs to go on your “say not” list?  You can start with obscenities, foolish talk and course joking.  While you are at it, add gossiping and lying. And to top it off, quit insulting others or bragging about yourself.       If we can subdue our tongues, there is no part of our bodies we cannot control. James likened the tongue to the rudder of a boat— it turns the whole ship.       “ When we put bits in the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever  the pilot wants to go.  Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts.”Say not!

Break for Third F: “Catch People on the Bounce”

QIC is currently reading “Everybody Always” by Bob Goff. The book challenges us all to love, literally everyone, regardless of their difficulty or what they’ve done or are currently going through.” A particular excerpt spoke deeply to me last night and I decided to share with the group. I believe that F3 is the perfect brotherhood to catch one another on the bounce…If you don’t know what I mean, read below:

“There’s one last thing the instructor told us in class. He said if the main parachute doesn’t open up, and the reserve parachute doesn’t either, you’ve got about 45 seconds before you hit the ground and make your mark. I was  surprised and a little grossed out when the instructor said hitting the  ground isn’t want kills you. Every bone in your body will break, of course.  But after you hit the ground,  you’ll bounce – and it’s the second time you  hit that kills you as the broken bones puncture all your organs I know that is kind of graphic, but it’s true. 

I’m a lawyer, so with this information in mind I figured I needed a strategy. Here’s mine: if none of the parachutes open up, when I hit the ground, I’m going to brag the grass and avoid the bounce. What is true in skydiving is true in our lives. It’s usually not the initial failure that takes us out; it’s the bounce. We’ve all hit the ground hard at work or in a relationship or with a big ambition. Whether we had a big, public failure or an even bigger private one, the initial failure won’t crush our spirit or kill our faith; it’s the second hit that does. The second hit is what follows when things go massively wrong or we fail big, and the people we thought would rush to us create distance instead. The express disapproval or teat us with polite indifference

If we want to be like Jesus, here’s our simple and courageous job: Catch people on the bounce. When they mess up, reach out to them with love and acceptance the way Jesus did. When they hit hard, run to them with your arms wide open to hug them even harder. God wants to be with them when they mess up, and He wants us to participate.”

“Everybody Always” -Bob Goff

Mosey back to AO for The Thang 3!

F3 Message

Q shared a blast from the past regarding watching the Peanuts Christmas Classic as a kid and how they handled the message of what Christmas is really about as told through the animated character Linus.  This information was found and utilized in this back-blast from a post by Gregg on December 9, 2008 on the Archive Attic in the Gazette in Cedar Rapids    

“During the making of the animated Christmas classic A Charlie Brown Christmas, Peanuts creator Charles Schulz had a meeting with Lee Mendelson, the show’s producer, and Bill Melendez, its lead animator. The discussion concerned Schulz’s insistence about including a New Testament scripture reading of the Christmas story from the Bible.The scripture reading was to be spoken by Peanuts character Linus Van Pelt in response to Charlie Brown’s lament, “Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” Mendelson and Melendez both voiced their concern about the reading, with Melendez telling Schulz, “It’s very dangerous for us to start talking about religion now.” Schulz answered him by saying, “Bill, if we don’t,who will?” In the end, the scripture reading was retained, and the CBS special was the second-most watched show of the week when it debuted on December 9,1965.”

Linus’ King James version scripture reading from Luke 2: 8-14, read:

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And,lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone roundabout them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not:for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

“That’s what Christmas is all about,Charlie Brown.”
