19 men entered the gloom to start the day by working up a good step. This is what went down:
Mosey to far corner of school grounds for quick disclaimer and straight into the workout. 10 merkins and run to corner at Cary. 10 LBCs. Continue to run Cary around school grounds to next corner. 10 Caroline Dry Docks. Continue run to Grove corner for 15 flutterkicks.
Mosey to blacktop near flags for The Escalator. Floor 1 – run to fence, 5 merkins, run back. Floor 2 – Floor 1 +Run backwards, 5 LBCs, Run backwards. Each successive floor you complete the floors below. Floor 3 – Kareoke and 5 WWII situps, Floor 4 – Lunge, Floor 5 – Polar bear down and run back.
Mosey to corner of track for Progressive Four Corners. Corner 1 5 boxcutters, 10 merkins, 15 WWII situps, 20 flutterkicks. Increase exercise count by 5 at each corner.
Mosey to tennis courts for 1 Suicide.
Mosey back to the flag. Numberama, Namearama, TYA took us out with thoughts and prayers for F3 brother (Cheech, John Flanagan) in SC who was hit by car while running.
NMS – What better way to start a humid day, than with a beatdown that kept the PAX moving the entire time. YHC selfishly wanted to test the legs this morning after last nights Hill Run, in an effort to prepare for the BRR. Mission accomplished, as I am typing this, my legs are smoked. The PAX can thank Cottonmouth for The Escalator returning. Yesterday morning at WDOG, he was talking about his first F3 workout, where The Escalator was introduced to F3RVA. He said he was smoked then, but he crushed it this morning. Great work Cottonmouth. When YHC started the beatdown without a COP, the PAX was confused with TYA asking about the warmups. YHC response was 10 merkins and run a city block. The PAX caught on quickly and we still made a big loop around the school grounds. (Sort of like a COP.) With the constant movement involved in today’s beatdown, not much mumblechatter from the PAX, but everybody crushed it this morning.
Welcome to Flat Tire (FNG).
Thanks for the opportunity to lead this morning gentlemen.
Great Q, Circle K. Constant movement. I’ll take Floor 5 over Floor 4 any day. I love that TYA (without his glasses) was easily convinced I wasn’t Döner Kebab for a majority of the workout.
Dude, without the specs I could be working out with the tomatoes and I wouldn’t know it. In fact, I may give that a try.
Great beat down circle k, I was hoping for exactly the opposite today, a ground and pound. I’ll have to go to an earthworm Q next time I’m looking for one of those
Nice Q Circle K. I’m mostly happy the escalator didn’t take us back down from the 5th floor today. Though, the progressive 4 corners was no cake-walk. The sweat was rolling for sure.
We just jumped from the 5th floor window to get to the 4 corners
Didn’t you see the tomatos over in their usual spot this morning
It was a beautiful ride down.
Great beat down Circle K. My legs are smoked too after trying to keep up with you guys last night.
Nice work Flat Tire. Hope you come back.
Nice Q Circle K – way to push fella’s !
See y’all in the gloom..
oof! Glad I as in SF all this week!
Welcome Flat Tire!
Glad to hear you crushed that elevator, Cottonmouth. I clearly remember that Saturday we both posted for the first time. You and I were WAY behind everyone else looking at each other like, “What the hell have we gotten ourselves into, and when is this pain going to stop?!” Feeling good after four months of F3… can’t wait to see how we’ll feel in four more months. Keep up the good work, Brother!
Thanks, Sabotage! I hope you are well and look forward to seeing you back in the gloom!
Great job on the VQ, I love the arm circles twice even better!!!
