#Swampskeg at a Crossroads

Date: 10/23/18

Q.I.C.: Abraham

The PAX: Airball, Bluegrass, Decaf, Sniff, Pusher, Hi-test, Fieri, Cold Call, Buttermaker, Ice Man, Hose, Lil’ Bit, Cat Daddy, Abraham

Conditions: Pefect. About 50, low humidity, no wind

Does YHC really deserve the “Angry Preacher” moniker? Isn’t he just a warm fuzzy fur ball that loves the world and everything in it? A “come as you are” “everybody gets a trophy” kind of a guy???

(Speaking of which, did you hear Airball tell about getting a medal just for showing up at that race in Columbia on Saturday? What the heck! What kind of kindergarten event was that? Did you all get milk and cookies and a nap after the race, Airball? Good grief!)

Okay, maybe the Angry Preacher thing fits just a little.

The A.P. has not Q’ed a mid-week workout in quite awhile, so maybe there was some pent up rage. He decided to take it out on the PAX this morning. A Crossroads workout seemed like just the ticket for a little anger management. Here’s how it went down:

The Thang

No stretching this morning. (You want to stretch do it before 5:30.) Heck, we didn’t even warm up. We got after it right out of the box.

Circle of Pain

10-15-20-25

The Q called for 10 sit-ups, 15 toe-tap merkins, 20 roll ups, 25 Russian twist to begin the workout.

Slowzie (slow mosey) downtown to crossroads on Mill Street.

C.O.T.

Announcements and prayer requests were made.YHC quoted Isaiah 6 in reference to disaster relief, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Lots of help still needed after Hurricanes Florence and Michael.

Moleskin

It was an honor to lead the PAX this morning. No, YHC is not angry, just wanted to ratchet our workouts up a bit. We have gotten better since we started but a true HIM should always be accelerating. To accelerate physically we have to keep pushing and challenging ourselves beyond what we are currently doing. If we don’t we become stagnant. So, we turned up the dial a little today, at least YHC hopes so.

SYITG,

Abraham
