14 seasoned gloom warriors braved the frigid temperatures to witness YHCs VQ on the frozen tundras of 45MOM.
After some appropriate theme music the Pax ran the long block into the biting 14 degree wind around the AO to the COP. Wilson pointed out that there was a more direct route but any run is too much run for that guy.
COP – 20 SSH, Don Quixotes, Arm Circles big and small forward and back, Copperhead Squats, Merkins, and LBCs
Mosey to the field for 14 minutes of Burpee 21 (groans all around). YHC had earlier polled some of the Pax as to their preference for burpees on tennis courts vs grass. Grass won though it was as hard as the courts (thanks Saab) and it turns out most of those polled didn’t show up – go figure ?. It went like this: Timer set for 1minute intervals, number of burpees assigned must be completed in that minute. If not achieved you skip the next minute to recover. 3, 6, 12, 15, 18, 21, 18, 15, 12, 8, 6, 3. Nobody did the 21 but of the 147 possible most of the Pax got 126 or so.
Mosey to the tennis courts for a triple check. This one was introduced to me my first week in F3 back in May. Planks, Plerkins (decline Merkin with feet on the back of the planking Pax) running.
Four corners – 20 WW2s, 10 Lt Dans, 20 2 count American Hammers, 10 Monkey Humpers.
Back to the flag. I had planned some Mary or a Boo-ya Merkin ROF but we ran out of time.
COT – YHC took us out.
Announcments – First day 5k at 11:00 on the 1st. Talk to Rosie. Tuesday at Hoedown is gonna be 8 degrees. Too cold for 2.0s
NMS – light mumble chatter and more teeth chattering. I was so pumped on adrenaline that I didn’t catch much. Burpees suck, but everyone knows that.
2017 has been the best year of my life for many reasons. F3 is not the least of those reasons. Thank you guys. Seriously. It shouldn’t have taken so long for me to Q but expect more in the future.
