16 regulars and 1 FNG posted for a beautiful morning in the near West End. The fields of Mary Munford were closed but the PAX was not deterred. The beatdown went something like this:
Slaughter Start – 10 Burpees OYO
Mosey around full, long blocks
Circle up for COP: SSH, DQs, Russian Soldiers, Merkins, Flutterkicks, Crab Cakes, Bob & Weaves
Mosey to fields only to discover they are closed. Audible to Tennis Courts. Partner up for Darrell Greens – 1st partner starts in merkin position, 2nd partner sprints to end. Upon starting, partner on the ground performs a merkin and sprints to try to catch partner 2. Repeato x 4
Slow it down for the Human Centipede – groups of 4 – 6 plank head to foot, guy in back bear crawls to front, resume plank. Repeato until group reaches the end
Partner up for 2 more Darrell Greens
Mosey around fence to basketball courts for Space Invaders – majority of PAX lines up as aliens in horizontal columns and Bob & Weaves left and right, shooters line up 20 yards back and lunge in a straight line trying to tag an alien without reaching out. If tagged, alien becomes a shooter. If missed, shooter does 10 burpees. Repeato x2
Partner up in groups of 3 for Triple Check – donkey kick, plank, run to fence and back
Circle up for 4 min of Mary – LBCs, Capital Letters, Freddie Mercuries, American Hammers, X’s & O’s
Mosey back to flag
COT – Bleeder took us out
Wow…the PAX accomplished a lot this morning…more than YHC had planned. The Triple Check and Mary were audibles. YHC pulled some new things out of the bag while bringing back some SOJ favorites (slaughter start, crab cakes, x’s & o’s, darrell greens).
This was definitely the first time YHC remembers a member of the PAX trying to carry on a conversation with the Q while he’s counting cadence. TYA wasn’t phased by the fact that YHC was counting out Russian soldiers when engaging in preseason NFL smack talk. Like his Patriots, and in true Agressor form, TYA must think the rules and etiquette don’t apply to him.
Seriously, Saab, when was the last time you crossed the river that didn’t involve traveling to an F3 workout?
6 sprints are 6 too many, especially if you partner up with Oyster. Dude has wheels…and finally caught YHC on the last Darrell Green. Well done, sir.
Space Invaders was good fun. YHC had considered bringing water balloons but didn’t want to deal with cleaning up the mess. We played 2 rounds. Round 1 starting shooters were those living SOJ. Round 2 starting shooters were anyone who had been part of an F3 Podcast, which ended up being 80% of the PAX. Impressive.
Lots of mumblechatter today, especially when the PAX was circled up. The Capital Letters shut everyone up quickly…followed by the X’s & O’s with a dead silent, slow 10-count by Swirly to end things in X formation.
Welcome to Kubrick! Way to crush the workout this morning.
Peace, Love & Hail to the Redskins tonight!
