BackBlast 3/4/20 – Holy Roller VQ the Foundry @ the County

Great turnout for my VQ at the County. Today’s WO was wrapped around “interruptions” that happen in our lives. While we had interruptions of Manmakers throughout the workout, the focus was on reminding us that interruptions today can truly be blessings – all based on our perspective. As one HIM reminded, as we were talking after, Jesus’ life was a life of interruptions. Children, co workers, the guy that cuts you off in traffic. So today, we look at those “breaks” in our plan as blessings! Think of the stories we can tell about those times today.

The weather was 32 and no wind, stars were out and a great morning for a Heavy.


Thank you HIM’s for the encouragement on my VQ:

  • Pelican

Disclaimer that I am definitely not a professional and modify as necessary. You can get what you want out of this one.

We started with a few warm-ups and stretches. No mosey, no walking, we Bear Crawled to get 2 coupons each and farmer carried back to claim our spots. We began a style workout with coupons and a long list of exercises. 90 seconds on and a few seconds off. Interruptions came frequently in the form of “Breaks”. Breaks consisted of ManMakers and then back to the exercise we were on. I chose ManMakers for our “Breaks” in honor of Spartan Races where you have to do 30 Burpees for each obstacle that you fail. And, because they are memorable if you do enough of them. Farmer Carry the coupons to their home and Bear Crawl back for a few Burpees and finished with the Spartan pushups. (Oh, and in the middle there was a period of plank on 2 leaning coupons. Not sure what to call that one.)

Announcements and Intentions – Prayer for spoken requests and that we would look at “Interruptions” as blessings and that we would see others as HE sees them.

Appreciating you all today, Holy Roller
