    Warmarama:  30 SSHs, Pick up in list at DaVinci Cartwheel x 2

    The Thang:  Mosey to football field to start Death Star and finish with Deck of Death.

    DaVinci Cartwheel Begin in a low squat. Reach across with both hands, placing your left hand next to your right foot and your right hand a bit further off. Push off with your feet, lift your hips over your shoulders into a mini tucked handstand, then (as gracefully as possible) put your feet back down past your right hand (left foot next to right hand), facing the same direction as you started. Rinse and repeat. Sometimes called a “monkey crawl” or “monkey scoot.” Can be done in both directions.
    Death Star Set 10 cones out in shape of star. Run to each cone and perform 30 merkins at each. Adds up to total of 300. Good times.
    Deck of Death Routine A routine done with a deck of playing cards where each suit is an exercise and each card dictates the number of reps you do of that exercise all the way up to an Ace being 14 reps. Exercise complete when all 52 cards have been flipped.


    Moseyed back to flags and finished up the last minute with Crunchy Frogs.

    COT:  YHC’s sermon last Sunday was on friendships.  It pointed out different reasons friends come and go in our lives.  I was reminded how in the past YHC has taken many friendships for granted and treated them as if the person was going to be around forever.  With the military and job changes leading to several friends moving away in the last couple of years, it wasnt until I got the news they were moving that I realized and felt regret for not spending more time with them and doing the things we intended on doing but never got around to it.  From now on YHC is trying to recognize and stay conscious of all the great friends he is blessed to have in his life, not take those friendships for granted, and make the most of them in the present time.

    Moleskin:  The Death Star led to this aptly named BackBlast.  300 Merkins in approximately 20 mins.
