Mosey to the rock pile with some butt kickers, high knees and toy soldiers thrown in for good measure.

Grab a Rock
Mosey to Soccer Field where there is a ¼ mile path around the perimeter of the field. Drop the rocks off at the 2nd corner and continue around the perimeter back to the 1st corner.

We completed the following exercises as a group:
1st Corner: 10 Burpees
2nd Corner: 20 Curls with the Rocks
3rd Corner: 30 Jumping Lunges
4th Corner: 40 American Hammers
Time to complete: 4:16

After a brief recovery, we completed the same circuit as a team. The goal was to complete it faster.
Time to complete: 3:39

After a brief recovery with some planking, we completed the same circuit as a team.
Time to complete: 3:35

Recover by running up the hill by the soccer fields backwards, then walk downX2
Continue to recover while planking.
We took one last swing at completing the circuit even faster.
Time to complete: 3:22

(There was a lap at a slow mosey as a means of recovering, but I don’t recall when we did that. Sorry folks.)

Drop the rocks off at the pile and mosey around the traffic circle a few times.

YHC shared some thoughts about when we encounter difficulty in life. There are times when we know we are making the “right” decision or taking the “right” path in life (a decision that is God’s will), but we still encounter difficulty, stress, tension, friction. This is normal and is what happens to most people (the result of living in a fallen world). We should not use that difficulty as an excuse to give up. YHC also shared 1 Corinthians 9:24, which goes well with the idea that we must push forward, even when life is not easy: “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.”

I had a good time pushing the men of Excalibur. I was impressed at how such a diverse group of men was able to stay close together while running the circuit. Every person took turns at the front, middle and rear of the team. The men of Excalibur should be proud of the work that was accomplished today; nearly 60 seconds knocked off their first attempt at the circuit. Aye!
