Backblast: UBU Monday, Pacer test
PAX: @TBTF @Tortuga@Bloomer @Stock boy @Captain Crunch @Jolly @Shiplap @Banks @Pool Boy @DQ @Da Vinci @Panhandle @Katniss @Big Mac @Dogear @Jailbreak
Conditions: mild, a little wet
Thang: Some rucked.
Some ran the Pacer Test.
I figured out how to use a phone, youtube, and a speaker, guesstimated what 20 meters would be on two tennis courts, and ran the pacer test. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMcfIkW7kkM
At the tone, PAX ran from one side of the singles tennis court to the other side of the next court’s singles area. I think it was more like 22 meters. The time between beeps stayed steady for 7 lengths, then sped up for the next 7 or 8 lengths and so on until no one could finish. You were allowed one failure. Once you failed twice, your test was over. My fastest fifth graders typically get a score of 60-70 rounds. One year I had a student get 106. Our high today was 78. When I got to school I measured the gym where we run it. The distance was 18.6 meters. I plan to try it again when I Q next week Friday for run club. We’ll get closer to the 18.6 meters my students use. It should make a huge difference.
Moleskine: Sin is not a problem you need to keep working on, It’s a cancer that only God can heal through the blood of Jesus Christ. Stop striving to fix yourself. Ask God to do his good work in you, and let him.
COT: Thanks to God for bodies that work, men to work out with, and the forgiveness that comes through Jesus Christ.
