Disclaimer: I still don’t know what I am doing. Proceed with caution and your own risk. Modify as necessary.

  • 20 Flutters


Announcements: None

Prayer Requests:

  • Brutus has a full plate at work. Lots of stress headed his way. Keep him on your prayer list.
  • Hermanos’ three sisters-in-law are expecting in early June. Something like 300 grandkids for his in-laws now. Not really, but there are lot. Prayers for their health as they enter the home stretch.
  • Spaulding reminded us that local kids are into their final weeks of school. Prayers for their continued health and safety.
  • Unspoken.


  • This Q thing is a learning process. First time I came up 6 minutes short. This time, I had no time left for Mary. Need to keep an eye on the watch and distance back to the flag to make sure I get a balanced workout.
  • Everyone, including Brutus, was a few minutes early. Nice job.
  • Spaulding introduced us to a new exercise called the Latrine. Done on your own. Standing one count – not a sitting two count.
  • Snipe gave his all, then dug deep and found some more. I was inspired by his strong finish when he had nothing left.
  • For the safety of the PAX, Brutus needs to lay off the beans.
  • As I travel for work and post across F3 Nation, I will continue to bring new exercises back to The Brig and The Yacht Club.
  • This group of men pushes me to be better and I hope to return the same to the group. I waited way to long to Q and would be happy to co-Q with anyone reluctant to pop their cherry. Looking forward to Schnitzel’s on May 20th.

That’s all I got. Smog out.
