6 brave and fearless men showed up for F3 Batteau on a beautiful Monday morning.
COP – 20 X SSH, Imperial Walker, LBC, Freddy Mercury, +10 Merkin. Paying homage to Gnarly Goat part of the count was just a series of inaudible turrets like yips. Mild laughter was heard among the pax.
Valley of Doubt – Start at the top of one hill with 5 merkins. At the bottom (of the valley) perform 5 dips. Run up the next hill and complete 10 merkins, back down the valley for 10 dips, etc. till completion of 30 merkins and dips.
Lunge down the hill of ill regret, at each lamp post perfrom 20, two-count American Hammers.
Polar Bear – Bear crawl 5 steps and complete a merkin. Approximately 100 yards.
Tritons Revenge – Run around the pond. At each lamp post perform one burpee. Add a burpee for each lamp post to complete 10 posts total.
COT – Mosey back to flag, numberama, namerama and Swirly lead us out.
Fact, Flipper can crush the bear crawls. He got done so far ahead of everyone else that while he was waiting for us to finish he grew a beard. EF Hutton set the standard for burpee excellence. We have a good group of men and it is an unbelievable privilege to have a serviceman amongst our ranks. Outstanding to have Genny Light drive all the way from Chester. BT made an appearance and knocked the rust off quite well. There is a 50/50 chance he just went to F3 camp for three weeks so he can kick everyone’s ass at Dogpile. Big cheers to Swirly’s son for the successful completion of his mission trip to Costa Rica and the gaining of some incredible insight into the great fortune it is to be an American.
This was a hard earned workout and the humidity was no joke. Our efforts were recognized with a gorgeous sunrise. I think the genius of these moments is that they are earned. We have pools of sweat as a receipt for the price we paid.
At a morning meeting I was doing a little recruiting for F3. My exact words were “It’s early. It’s hard. It’s not for everyone. I think you’ll love it.”
See you in the gloom.
