Happy Birthday Lauri!
Complete as many repetitions as you can, as quickly as you can.
Teams of two must complete as many repetitions of the following movements as they can in the time it takes their partner to sprint 400 meters. The mission will commence with one partner running and the other on one of the assigned movements. The “indoor” partner will complete as many repetitions of the movement as they can until their partner returns and they switch roles. After both partners have completed a run and the first movement, the cycle repeats until each partner has completed four 400 meter sprints and completed all four of the movements.
Thrusters (45/33 lb)
Kettlebell Swings (24/16 kg)
Med Ball Cleans (20/14 lb)
Med Ball Sit-Ups with reach (20/14 lb)
A team’s score will be determined by the number of repetitions they complete of the indoor movements, adjusted by time penalties. One point will be subtracted from the team’s score for every 2 seconds that team finishes behind the first team to finish.
(E.g., If the first team to finish completes 320 repetitions in 15:00 minutes, their total score is 320. A team that completes 350 repetitions in 16:00 minutes will also have a total score of 320 after they have been assessed their penalties.)
“Problems are simply opportunities in work clothes”
In Chinese, “crisis” is written with two symbols. In the English language, these translate to “Danger”, and “Opportunity”. These two words summarize our emotional connection to adversity very well.
Problems feel “dangerous”, because we’d rather be comfortable, cozy, and safe. It’s a human condition… we don’t like change. But problems are also full of “opportunity”, as the uncomfortable hot mess of adversity is the greatest catalyst to our growth.
Our greatest opportunities in life will also be our most trying. And if we can reframe those “problems” to being the enablers of growth… we can go wherever we want to go. We just need to suit up and get to work.
