Who’s in Our Spot?


23 conspirators infiltrated The Dogpile this fine early spring morning and turned the tide of the battle against the Fartsack.  Here’s how it went down:

Mosey to the far end of the Great Lawn for the COP

SSHs x 50
Imperial Walkers x20
Arm Circles x20ish
Don Quixote x10 (Saab style)
LBCs x40

Mosey to center of Great Lawn for Dora
100 Mercans
200 LBCs
300 Jump Squats
Run loop to large flower pots

Mosey to Carillon for Triple Check
1st man Polar Bear crawls steps, then Russian Soldier across face of Carillon, back down steps
2nd man reverse crunches
3rd man flutter kicks
Repeato x3

Plank for 1 minute

Mosey 50 feet for Touch a Tree
10 – Balls to the Wall
8 – LBCs
6 – Burpees
4 – LBCs
2 – Balls to the Wall

Plank for 1 minute

Mosey to Amphitheater 
Incline Mercan Ladder…step 1, 1 Mercan up to top (18th) step

Mosey back to the Flag
Number-rama, Name-a-rama, YHC took us out


YHC had a long week of travel across multiple cities and timezones.  Prep for the Q today took a back seat, so YHC confesses that 300 jump squats somehow sounded quite a bit better last night at 10 p.m. than they felt this morning at 6:15 a.m.  YHC thanks the PAX for their tolerance.  Feel the burn, eh?

Kudos to Swirly for faithfully arriving early.  With several tractor trailers and Redcoats in “our spot” today, the blue pick-up was the shovel flag to gather around before there was a shovel flag to gather around.  Glad to have him back out there with us.

YHC finds it very cool that a television crew chose Dogpile as their location to film.  First, 2.5 years of Dogpile and not a pothole to be filled, but a few days of filming apparently do the trick.  T-Claps to the city of Richmond.  And, after The Today Show broadcasting TYAs video from Dogpile, the new episodes of “Turn” will officially make for a trend in Dogpile’s film career.  Surely The Academy has noticed.  Dogpile will have its name in lights soon.  Next step…dog prints on the Walk of Fame in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

YHC remains but a padowan when it comes to Qing and continues to work on his training.  YHC  thanks Circle K for his patience and will obtain either brake lights or wear a USPS “This Vehicle Makes Frequent Stops” sign to his next Q.

YHC confesses to being tired from the travel and not particularly attuned to the mumble chatter.  That said, YHC congratulates Opus on killing it today.  YHC remembers struggling through a few workouts last summer with Opus.  Great progress…well done, sir.  Nice also to see Clavin back for his second workout…solid effort, brother.

Welcome FNG Squiggy.  YHC would relish attending a workout in Wisconsin in January.  But, just one.


Lab Rat is looking for names for F3 Charlottesville.  Send them to F3Charlottesville@gmail.com.  The launch is May 20th.  Let’s talk this up and send names of prospective members as soon as possible!

Wilson reminds us that May 19 is the golf fundraiser (FortheCause.org).  Sign up now (teams of four).

  1. @Lab Rat, threw out an invitation to Hokies in Hooville via Techsideline’s message board this morning. Was immediately accused of solicitation, so not sure how that’ll work out. Got Sully to post in Hampton Roads that way though.

  2. Honey Do RVA on

    Highlight of the beatdown for me was seeing Loose Goose jump up on the flowerpot during the Dora. Who knew he had the Ups for such a feat.

    Also here is the conversation M Honeydo and I had at 5:40 when my phone started getting texts and woke her up:

    M HD: Who is texting you?
    Me: Swirly, saying we need to park somewhere else. It’s part of his job in securing the AO
    M HD: You guys are idiots.

  4. Great Q today UpChuck! Always enjoy a good Dora and Triple Check to start the day!

    Unfortunately Opus and myself didn’t get any texts about where to meet this morning and we lost Circle K trying to find the SF. Luckily we part and saw the PAX running on the road.

    See you in the gloom!

  5. I love Dogpile so much! It’s such a great place for a workout with so many different options (and trees). Every time I come on a Saturday, we do something different! Loved getting to converse with Offshore at ET’s afterwards as well! The fellowship is always as good as the workouts! Have a great week!

  6. Solid beat down Upchuck. Thanks to Swirly for commandeering a spit to park this am. Welcome to Squiggy

  7. How did I forget the Flying Goose! The man lept onto and over a flower pot in a single bound (really).

  8. BT (Big Tennessee) on

    I love that so many M’s use that exact line. We must be doing something right.

  9. Great to hang out with Opus and Cosmo this morning! Line of the day: please get my husband back out to F3 – M Best Shot. I’m sure it was followed by – those guys are idiots (under her breath).

  10. I don’t know Best Shot, but my guess he’ll either start coming or never visit ET’s again.

  11. Yeah. My people never got the paperwork for my cameo. Oh well. M Wilson has a standing “your idiots ” she now only needs to look at me and I know.

  12. Glad to see that M Lab Rat is not alone. Of course, she is married to king idiot.

  13. I tried to show up but trucks and tents got me spooked!! No BLUE TRUCK and I was out! Nice work out gents!! Fartsack won after driving around for 10 mins. See ya next time….

    Good Q Upchuck !
    Idiots – M/Honeydo ? More like life savers 🙂 This is important stuff we are doing here …
