PAX 2 ran to first cone, did 1 burpee and ran back, then ran to second cone, did 2 burpees and ran back and then swapped with PAX 1. All exercise reps were cumulative.

Read C.S. Lewis quote to PAX: “We all want progress. but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive”

I tied this quote into my prayer life and the struggles within. During this Lenten season, I have focused on making my prayers intentional and not just a “transaction” It is too easy to fall into the trap of making the prayer part of our daily checklist and moving on about our day. In my prayer life, I was headed down the wrong road and thus, to obtain progress I had to turn back and start over on the right road with intentional, conversational prayer. Challenged all PAX struggling with this same issue to do the same.


Burpees during the suicide were stupid. Called that off about 15-20 minutes into the workout. Added them at 5:15 to the beatdown and removed them at 5:55. Pretty quick turnaround there.

Experienced the quickest naming of an FNG since I have been around F3. Didn’t even get to finish his story before we had his name nailed down.

Great group of men this morning. Mumble Chatter not super high as suicides and burpees knocked it out of us!


Convergence at Ridgecut next Wednesday March 24. Would have been Night Sweats VQ. Let’s really show up and show out for this one!
