    Iron PAX 2018 Week 2 Redux – Four rounds of the following, each one “counted” by a different PAX so as to facilitate mumble chatter.

    • 40 Big Boys

    • 20 Bonnie Blairs (10 each leg)
    • 10 Burpees

    The concept of “wilderness” is regularly used through scripture as a place that appears fruitless and desolate but where God does/begins great works: Israel’s wandering, Jesus tempted, Ezekiel & dry bones, etc.

    • YHC encouraged the PAX that in this time of “wilderness” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, to be looking for/following after the work that God is doing.


    • Dreamliner pawned off his merkin/burpees counting responsibilities on YHC, much to the other PAX’s chagrin (YHC is not fast at burpees).
    • YHC appreciates the flattery of being the source of inspiration for a new ab exercise, even if it was born out of a failed attempt at usurping choice.


    • AOs are still operating regularly, with “social distancing” enacted (e.g. no balling up for prayer).
    • March QuadP is an FNG / Kotter challenge–get those newbies out (like they have anything else to do) and get those guys who haven’t been out in a while to come.
