Always 70 and Sunny

Three’s Company


Seven brave, fool-hardy PAX challenged the beautiful weather (mid 60s with a light breeze) to take on all the trials that #DuckDuckGoose could offer

The Thang:

Warmarama: Side straddle hops (20 IC), shoulder circles (10 forward, 10 reversed, IC)

Running with Flavor: As was explained to YHC by Dreamliner, posting at #DuckDuckGoose consisted of approximately 20 minutes of “running with flavor” followed by 20 minutes of whatever diabolical activities the Q can conjure.  Therefore, to make sure the PAX were properly “seasoned” during the run portion, they were split into 2 groups that would run the approximately half-mile look either clockwise or counter-clockwise.  The counter-clockwise folks were told to pick a number from 1-6 and, much to the surprise of YHC, they acquiesced with little resistance.  Then, they were informed of what exercise each number corresponded to and how the run would work.  As each counter-clockwise runner crossed paths with a clockwise runner, they would perform 3 reps of whatever exercise the counter-clockwise runner was at in their cycle.  For each encounter, the number of the exercise was increased by 1.  So, three was the company of each encounter as it consisted of 2 PAX and their exercise.  All of the PAX completed 3 laps and then met back at the shovel flag.  The 6 exercises were:

  1. Burpees
  2. Big boy sit-ups
  3. Merkins
  4. Squats
  5. Carolina dry docks
  6. Little baby crunches

With the PAX much more palatable, YHC informed them that they would be continuing these 6 exercises for 3 sets with a 45 second on/15 second off cycle. YHC indicated that this was called Toboggan or Ciabatta or something.  At this point, mumble chatter began and, as the sets were hammered out, the mumble chatter became more dillusional.  YHC understood this to indicate that the PAX were appreciating the sitcom-themed workout.  Sub-Mac remarked that he appreciated the beautiful scene of the American Flag with a blue-sky background while doing big boy sit-ups.  At this point, Dreamliner commented that his scenery was somewhat obstructed by YHC.  However, I would consider my likeness to be an improvement.  Discussion of awkward situations involving Carolina dry docks and picking your nose with grass strands rounded out the mumble chatter.

Circle of Trust (COT):

Countarama, Namarama, then YHC informed the PAX that there will be a bible study starting this summer to examine how the Bible and what is in it can teach us to be better men spiritually, physically, and relationally.  These will happen after the Wednesday workout at #bearcountry and all PAX are welcome.  Please comment or e-mail ( for more information.

    Mumble chatter definitely added to the morning.

    Looking forward to the Bible study post-BearCountry. Do we know the first date yet?
