Climb that mountain
Most Sunday nights I sleep less than other nights of the week, running through my head all of the things I need to get done in the upcoming week. I’ve learned from countless productivity books the best approach is always one step at a time. So reading a BB from Rolling Stone inspired me to lift their workout liberally and climb up (and down) a mountain. By 6:50 this morning, we had already done the hardest thing many of us would do all day. The total volume was heavy, but each step was manageable.
Disclaimer was given and heavier weights were given to those who tried to sneak in dumbbells. A reminder about gloves was given and we were off.

COT & BOM
Prayers for Snape’s cousin Ronnie undergoing surgery today while battling cancer
Prayers for LNC seniors dealing with a tragic loss; and everyone else battling mental anguish and too much solitude.
Always a pleasure to lead such a fine group of men. There was a decent amount of grumbling so I take it folks got their money’s worth. TClaps to War-wick for sticking with all of the mountain climbers, not easy after being out for a while.
