Simple is good


5 determined men eschewed the fartsack for a SOJ takeover Q at Green Acres.  The weather was a cool 62 degrees, perfect for a morning of putting in some work to get better.


Mosey to the bus loop for a warm up.  10 burpees OYO, SSH, DQ, Hillbillies, Alternating shoulder taps, LBC.

Mosey to the fields (the size of this field puts others to shame) for a Round and Round.  Here’s how it goes.  Using the light poles as markers, start at the corner do 5 burpees, run down the sideline to the first light pole 5 more, repeat for a total of 4 light poles on one side, cross the field and repeat for the 4 light poles on the other side.  Back to the start (total 8 sets) and plank for the 6.   Repeato with 10 merkins, 15 squats and 20 flutter kicks.

Mosey back to the front of the school for Mary – Crunchy Frogs, Diamond Merkins, Dollies, Werkins, Box Cutters, Merkins, American Hammers

COT and YHC took us out.

SOJ takeover has been great so far this week, checking out new AOs and seeing new faces.  YHC had heard good things about the size and opportunities at Green Acres and decided to check it out for myself.  By driving Bleeder style down I295 YHC arrived a few minutes early to the AO and drove to the back, there’s a ton of space there and should be a great AO.  Unfortunately YHCs creativity bucket was empty this morning so round and round the field we go.  It was a simple workout but we got about 2.5 miles with a few other things worked in.

The end of round 1 was met with more wildlife.  This time I don’t think it would have been good luck.  A skunk decided to try to cross the field as everyone was getting back to the starting point.  YHC tried to keep Opus out of the skunk’s Path, at first he thought YHC was offering words of encouragement.  The urgency was quickly realized and we allowed the skunk to take cover and were able to proceed.  This would have taken Marmaduke’s bird incident to a new level if someone had been Marv-ed by a live skunk.

BoomBoom and Bucketmouth are heading back to school soon but it was great to meet them, YHC and the F3 family wishes them luck as they head back.  Opus and YHC finally got our “first wind” on the final round and were able to separate from the pack, although it’s likely Phonics was holding back in conversation with Boom Boom.

Great work today men, it was a pleasure to make the trip to lead.

  1. Great Q today Rosie! Thank you for making the drive to Green Acres this morning.

    After Boom Boom and I made it past the skunk, it started to move towards several bushes and right into the path of Rosie and Opus. I can tell that the Marv incident made quite an impression on Rosie because Rosie and Opus did not move until that skunk was out of site.

    I was not holding back during the flutter kicks. I am just slow at them. My weakness in swimming is also the flutter kick. Boom Boom might have been holding back to make me feel better.
