This morning 5 faithfuls took a plunge into the dark abyss of Batteau to kick off our Sunday shoes and cure our Monday blues with a VQ beatdown from YHC.

Pax forms a line, then one member runs out five yards and goes into low plank, 2nd follows by jumping over first ‘track’ and then going 5 yards further to low plank. Each other Pax member follows suit. This process continued to the 5th light post around the pond.
From the 6th light post, each PAX member performs 3 Burpees and run to next light post adding an additional burped at each lamp post then stopping at the bridge
Other partner runs to 3rd light post and back

YHC took us out
Last night I noticed that there was an opening for the Q at Batteau, and since I had already planned to attend, I decided I should make this my VQ. Even though it was fairly last minute, I wanted to make sure that I had a decent plan in place. So I worked last night to layout my approach and exercises for the workout. Unbeknownst to me that in the midst of my planning I neglected to set an alarm, and thus this VQ almost never happened. Thankfully, my son (who is 4 and couldn’t sleep) woke me up at 0440 to crawl in our bed. Luckily, just in time for me to awake from dreaming about burpees and bear crawls and get out and do some.
The weather was almost perfect and we used as much of the AO as time allowed. It was an absolute pleasure to take the Q and lead the PAX today. I must admit that all of the running almost did me in this morning. In hindsight, maybe the native American runs up the hill of ill regret was not such a good idea or even the bear crawls and crab walks that followed. But that is what is so great about F3. Each morning you get to go out and find out what you are made of, and use the opportunity to seek out our own physical boundaries, and get better.
See you all in the gloom.
