Celebrity Jeopardy

Alex Trebek brought the beatdown today.

F3 Wheaton is as strong mentally as it is physically. Out of 28 questions, 19 were answered correctly and 9 were incorrect, which led the Pax to complete 565 total reps of every exercise, including 100 burpees.

We serendipitously ended right on time, finishing the last question as the buzzer rang.

Lest one think there was no method to the madness, these exercises were all core and back focused, giving a good work out to the stabilizers that we depend on to not hurt ourselves. With any luck we all escaped injury this time around and helped work those muscles that will keep us from injury in the future.

COR / NOR / COT: Prayers for strength, courage, and endurance, for the week ahead — for unity for our nation and our people and healing for our president — that we may be examples of brotherly love and faithful witness amidst trying times — for TAR PIT, it’s growth, and our finding of the people who most need this in their lives.

8.29.20 — The First Yoga Day

Well, it finally happened. After some hard-hitting muscle-aching workouts, YHC had had enough. If he was going to make a 6-Pack this week and survive IronPAX, it needed some active recovery and a good stretch. Posting the EC preblast to the group, a few willing participants (Double Beef & Cheddar, Too Big to Fail, Shiplap, Banks, Big Mac, Crunch (QIC)) decided to give our Q the benefit of the doubt. On a nice warm, muggy Friday morning, we assembled in the Gloom.

COR/NOR/COT: Prayer for Big Mac’s friend’s wife and their dealing with a bad cancer diagnosis – for the members of the group (present and elsewhere) for focus and clarity to be on mission today and through the week.

MOLESKIN: This was a surprisingly awesome workout. A little bit or muscle strengthening, a decent sweat, and some great recovery. I’m a yoga fan, despite having not done it in a long while, and I was surprised how amazing I felt heading home and having breakfast. Seemed like the rest of the group felt some good vibes as well. Probably going to be a regular feature, especially after IronPAX workouts.
