Eighteen men showed up on a cool rainy morning for an experience that has never happened before an F3 RVA workout (at least for YHC).
At approx. 5:50 am, a few of us were doing the norm and greeting each other when all of a sudden a LOUD crash is heard. Immediately we all stopped and looked to see where on the road the wreck was. There is really no way to say this without a mild giggle, but Pavarotti, when pulling in hit the light pole. YES you heard that right. The light pole all by itself with a bright light on top. As soon as he hit it, threw it in reverse and found a parking spot and jumped out.Like nothing happened. Once we assessed he was not injured, Honeymoon reviewed the damage. ONLY a small piece of trim. Pavarotti then stated “oh that comes off all the time”. Really dude? How many things do you hit? Seriously – he hit the light pole! After some laughs and poking fun, we got started.
Mosey to VITA track and run to the memorial for COP:
SSH, Don Quiote, Russian Soldier & LBC
Mosey to burpee row. (Honey Do would have smiled) Count off into two teams (actually for later) Start at the end by the field, 2 burpees every light pole. At end turn and repeat.
Mosey to field where 14 cones were set up in a straight line two feet apart. Three cones were a good distance down the field. YHC figured it was Chumpcar Race weekend, so why not have a little competition ourselves. We called the exercise Touch & Go. We hope the Schultz Racing team finishes in first place.
Here is how it worked: Each team jogs in place while a team member of each team plank walks and double touches each cone. At the end of the cones, they run to the three cones down the field and back. The next team member starts the cone plank walk when the other starts running. A bit of adjustment and strategy was required. After two rounds team 1 was up by 2. YHC decided we should go 3 out of 5. Team two took race 3 & 4. With some tire pressure adjustments and an adjustment in the order, team 1 took the final race. Got pretty intense!
Pick up cones and mosey to amphitheater for triple check. 1. Double leg step ups (come down as you wish – heard a few references to the Princess Bride) 2. Monkey humpers 3. Incline, Decline & regular merkins. YHC called an audible somewhere in the middle of the third round to get in some signature Mary.
Ring of fire – Flair required and no repeats. Great job by all men. Phonics even broke out the ONE ARM Merkin. Amazing! Bleeder – Honeymoon and you should have a lift off competition. I’d pay to see that!
COT in amphitheater – Honeymoon took us out and clearly stated to his higher being he is NOT Wilson!
