I was excited to be the Q at The Colosseum this cool morning and my attempt to push the Pax at one of The Fort well known challenging AO’s. Being one of the older pax, I wanted to push everyone physically and also share what has been going on in my life storm and how I have felt the love and support of the Pax.
A short disclaimer was given since all of the Pax were well versed in F3. Off we moseyed to the basketball courts and circled up for some warm-up.
- Wind mill
- 6 inch hold 10 sec
- Mountain Climber
Moseyed to the back bus entrance drive for some light pole work. I arrived early and with the side walk chalk (borrowed from a neighbors child, DD made mention that my kids were to old for sidewalk chalk) I put an exercise at 6 poles. Start at 1st pole, do the exercise and run to 2nd. Return back to 1st and go 2nd, 3rd and return. Continue this up the hill to the 6th pole and back.
- 20 Merkins
- 30 Squats
- 30 Monkey Humpers
- 10 Burpees
- 20 CDD
- 25 Dips
Once all Pax completed then we went back to the 6th pole and worked our way back to the 1st pole.
Mosey back to the basketball court for Mary.
- Freddie Mercury
- Dynamic LBC (LBC with feet at 6 inches)
- Hello Dolly
- American hammer
This past week has been one of the toughest in our parenting years. When we got a call at 1:30am from our 21 yr old daughter and she had a serious accident and her car flipped and then caught on fire, our hearts sank. Thankfully through the Grace of God, all of the events of that night turned out to be ok for our daughter physically. No injuries and just a loss of material items. This has opened our eyes to a couple of things. God’s love and protection of His children even when sometimes we have run far away from Him. Mental Illness is real and when you see your adult age children struggle with this, it is heart breaking. The relationships that we build in F3 are real and I have felt the love and support of the PAX.
In the QSource we talk about preparing for the expected and unexpected and the unexpected preparation was confusing to me. I now understand that for me, this preparation was building the relationships with My Lord, My Shieldlock, Pax and having a good relationship with my M. When the unexpected storms of life come and crash on the beach, you have to have others around to help walk through the storm and lift you up. I have felt this over the past week.
Thanks to Jekyll for the opportunity to Q and share!!!
