Draw A Line In The Sand And Burn Your White Flag

10 warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day in what was first thought to be Union territory because it is practically the last outpost before Wisconsin, but alas it was in fact a fair burg from the fine southern Commonwealth of Virginia.  According to legend it went a little something like this.

COP SSH X 10, SSH RL X 10, SSH LL X 10, WWII X 20, FC X 20, HRM X 10, MRL X 10, MLL X 10, Arm Circle X 1

Round 1) Run to  Corner #1 5 burpees, run back to start.

Round 2) Run to Corner #1 5 burpees, run to corner #2 for 5 burpees and 10 merkins, back to corner #1 for 5 burpees, back to start.

Round 3) Run to Corner #1 5 burpees, run to corner #2 for 5 burpees and 10 merkins, run to corner 3 for5 burpees, 10 merkins, 20 (two count strict) Flutter kicks, then run to corner #2 for 5 burpees and 10 merkins,back to corner #1 for 5 burpees, back to start.

Catch Me If You Can: Mosey to the bus loop and partner up.  One partner runs the look and the other bear crawls.  Switcheroo when caught.  The next exercise is lunges.  Run and switch until complete.

Mosey to front of school for 3 rounds of the following: 10 chicken peckers, 10 WWI, 10 incline merkins.

Back to start for numberama, namerama and The Carpenter led us out.

Moleskin:  Way to bring the monster effort men!!  Of particular note was the solid high RPM workout of Bulkhead and Wheelie. Way to work fellas.  Honorable mention goes to Spike who despite the considerable head start of YHC ran me down like a cheetah does an antelope. It is the closest that YHC has come to spilling the merlot in quite some time.

The title of the backblast came from some thoughts over the past few days.  Way too often we hear “I’ll just get through the holidays” or “I’m just trying to survive until the New Year”.  This is horse crap, period. YHC wants no part of the sad clown feeding tube.  YHC does not participate in and hold the men of F3 to a higher standard because of an interest in simply surviving.  YHC and the excellent men of F3 are committed to thriving.

DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND AND BURN YOUR WHITE FLAG.

As the year winds down, DO NOT COAST.  You have worked too hard to get the momentum necessary to get to this point.  This is the easiest time of year to justify taking your foot off the pedal.  Your work, workouts, diet and family time can all suffer.  Apply the gas and finish off this year. Commit to yourself, your family and your F3 Brothers that you’ll finish the year so strong that 2018 will ask for mercy. Your next worthy opponent will be 2019.  Believe this fun fact, 2019 is training under the radar and getting ready to kick your butt.

I’m in.  Who is with me?

  1. Hardywood, thanks for your encouragement this morning and every F3 morning! I just need to get a wake up call from you every day, bro! Better than coffee! My arms are sore for some reason. See you Thursday!

  2. Oh, man, Hardywood. I have totally mis-read your personality and state of being. I was thinking you were headed into 2019 in the “new dad falling asleep on the couch, sleeping late, eating salty snacks, and adding 30 pounds on the waist” phase. Where did this energy and self-improvement phase come from?

    Side note: This development means the recently purchased “Fry ‘Til You Die” cookbook that might need to be re-gifted for Christmas. Any takers?

  3. Your words hit true. Now I must feel guilty while I eat my sloppy joe over fries dinner (of course with cheese!). Good news is I’m drinking quality beer with it, so that makes up for it. Got to take my zinc.

    Smoker workout, brother!
