Backblast: May the Orbeez 4th.
Date: Thursday, May 4th, 2023
Pax: @Hancock @Stock boy @Pool Boy @Ankles @T-bone @Spokes @8-Track @Big Mac @Captain Crunch @Katniss @Tortuga @SAGA @Da Vinci @Panhandle @Sparrow @Hershey @Mater FNGs: 1
A battle to take and defend Hoffa Hill. Complete the group workout and run for the high ground. If you get hit by Orbeez or a Beefstick do 5 burpees (or 10 merkins or 10 starjumps or surrender your beefstick).
Recap: Claiming the high ground early created a strong and persistent advantage. Challengers from below believed they could take the hill if they worked together, but that remained strictly in the realm of theory. The beefstick’s didn’t factor into game play as much as I expected. Most pax held on to beefsticks instead of using them as extra lives. I think they also got forgotten during the thrill of flying water beads. @Big Mac staged a very effective beefstick attack on 5 of us at the beginning of game #2.
These were the exercises completed X 2 at the start of each game: 100 Burpees
100 Star Jumps
100 Bonnie Blairs (1 is 1)
100 Big Boy Sit-ups
100 Mountain Climbers (2 is 1)
100 Side Straddle hops (2 is 1)
100 Flutter kicks (2 is 1)
100 Little Baby Crunches
Make listening your new superpower. You will learn more, love more, and understand more. Dedicate an entire meeting to really understanding the other person’s perspective. Or as @Stock boy put it, “What was that you were saying?”
While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. You don’t have to clean up your act to be loved by Jesus. He was willing to die for you just the way you are. Come as you are and let his love clean you up.
