Split into three groups, each person grab a block, and mosey to the soccer field.
Five cones have been set up for a starfish workout (one cone is in the middle and four cones North, South, East, and West about 20 yards from the center cone). Each cone represents an exercise -> middle cone is American Hammers and other four are Burpees, Squats, Flutter Kicks, and Tricep Dips.
The PAX start by performing one rep at the middle cone (American Hammers). Then, with your partner, you move to an outside cone and perform 2 reps, then back to the middle for 3 reps (American Hammers), then to a different outside cone for 4 reps. Continue working around the circle with odd numbers always in the middle and evens always on the outside. The rep count continues to increase by 1 until you get to 25.
After this, we all came to the conclusion that a train had gone by while we were performing the Starfish so, since we had already completed some Burpees, we performed 11 Blockies.
The blocks were stowed and we met at the basketball court. We lined up along the wall, shoulder to shoulder, starting from the left side. The person on the left ran to the end of the basketball court and came back to stand beside the person on the right. This continued until we were at the end of the wall. While one person was running, everyone else was performing a wall sit. We then performed another round but instead of running, we bear crawled to half court and lunged back with everyone else holding plank.
The only thing left was some time for Mary, PAX choice around the circle.
Devo: 1 Timothy 4:7-8 -> Paul tells us that bodily training is of ‘some’ value but godliness is of value in “every way”. We talked about the importance of training yourself (growing) spiritually, not just physically.
