27 faithful and newly anointed presented themselves at Dogwood Dell today for what YHC hoped would be a satisfactory beat-down. This is what transpired (more or less)…
COP: SSH, DQ’s (Abe/Swirly style!), Arm Circles, LBC’s, maybe something else…
4 Corners (on a Triangle?): 25 WWII, (Bear Crawl to next station), 25 Merkins, 25 Burpees, 25 Flutter Kicks (4 count)…all done near “far traffic circle” past the Carillon.
Doras (Carillon): 100 Merkins, 100 LBC’s, 100 Box Cutters, 100 Jump Squats,
Rusty Cage: 5 pullups (overhand, underhand), 5 Jerkins (overhand, underhand). Repeato
Jacobs Ladder (Burpees) on pit of pain
Amphitheater: Lindsays (Dips x30, Merkins x10). Advance up step each time. (YHC then called an audible for two sets of American Hammers and Rosalitas.)
Polesmokers: Hold 6 inches…Person in back does 5 merkins then advances to front.
Ring of Fire (Merkins)
It has been many months since YHC had the opportunity to take in Dogpile without the spectre of a long Saturday run and he hopes his enjoyment of the day was evident. YHC did enjoy seeing Wilson perform his signature “early start” during the instruction period for Doras. Beyond that, not much mumble chatter to draw upon for this writing, either because YHC was slightly distracted (as usual), or everyone remained steadily busy and winded.
We welcomed 4 new FNG’s today and all were given awesome handles: Receptacle, Flatline, Cosmo, and DaVinci. Kudos to Lockjaw’s 2.0 DaVinci who gave the F3 workout an enthusiastic review and was already asking afterward if there is a workout he can join tomorrow (did I mention he is 7 and 1/2 years old). Needless to say, it was great to have all our FNG’s there today and we sincerely look forward to seeing you all again.
COT: We wished those on the Spartan run today much success and enjoyment. Way to go guys (BT, Toga, others?)!…RESPECT for completing what I understand is an extremely challenging event. Also, we officially retired “Blue Balls” for the more g-rated and family friendly “Helix”.
> Bear Creek 10 miler (great trail run and post-run tailgate planned)
> Those new to F3: Text F3RVA to 97000 to gain info and get setup on-line. (Doesn’t mean you can’t still see Wilson about “the App”)
> Winstons is soliciting some volunteers to come up to Hanover on 10/15 and lead an F3 style workout for a church retreat. Please see Winstons if interested…have no doubt this will help with F3 recruitment in the area.
> Workout and Happy Hour on Wednesday. See back blast from Hardywood (all meet at Crossroads at 6:00pm)
> Mechanicsville has a new AO on Fridays…that makes 3 total for the week. Way to go guys. (YHC heard we were up to something like 18 AO’s in RVA…nice!)
> Convergence on Oct 8…please reach out to FNG’s and those who haven’t attended for some time.
