A warmish 60 degree Thursday morning before Memorial Day weekend brought 26 Pax out for a VQ. More than YHC expected! No FNGs , but we did welcome The Farm who was visiting from Charlotte. Now the pressure is on to challenge the group….
Quick jog to the soccer field for Warmup:
SSH x 20 — Good Morning x 15 — 5 Burpees OYO — Imperial Walkers x 20 — 5 Burpees OYO
Jog down the trail to Glen Eden for a bit of Rack ‘Em and Stack ‘Em (fancy name for hill suicides I learned from Vector Victor):
–Run to first light pole, 10 Merkins and run back
-10 Star Jumps OYO
–Run to first light pole, 10 Merkins and run back — run to 2nd light pole, 10 Merkins and run back
-Plank until all Pax get back, 10 Squats in cadence
–Run to first light pole, 10 Merkins and run back — run to 2nd light pole, 10 Merkins and run back — run to 3rd light pole, 10 Merkins and run back
-Plank until all Pax get back, 10-count Chilcutt breather
–You’re seeing the pattern here: do the first 3 light poles again and then add the 4th. The mumble chatter is getting louder.
-Plank until all Pax get back
There was never a plan for a 5th light pole (there is one), and from Dingo it sounds like there would have been a mutiny of sorts if the 5th was included, so we head off another direction:
Jog back up the trail to the soccer field and partner up:
–Partner 1 bear crawls to the other end and sprints back; Partner 2 starts LBC’s. Flapjack until 200 collective LBCs completed
–Partner 1 backpedals to the other end and sprints back; Partner 2 starts WWIIs. Flapjack until 100 collective WWIIs completed
–5 burpees OYO
–American Hammer x 30 — LowSlowFlutter x 20 — Hammy Stretch x 10 each leg — FINISHED
There’s a quote about success and making a positive difference that goes something like “you gotta get comfortable feeling uncomfortable.” Of all the benefits of F3, the one that’s helped me the most is the encouragement to step out of my comfort zone, whether it’s showing up consistently in The Gloom, doing a few more reps, or stepping up to Q a workout. Being a better husband, father, friend, mentor, and worker is often uncomfortable, but because of the great challenge and unbelievable opportunity to lead great men, it becomes more comfortable. Thanks to each of you.
Until next time,
