Six regulars and one FNG gathered at Batteau this morning for coffee, bagels, and Hot Potatoes. 5:30 sharp, time to mosey. YHC took us to the far side of the field to see what the neighbors on Forest Hill Avenue were having for breakfast.
COP: Arm Circles (10) SSHs (20) DQs (11 – not sure why). Shut it down. NOTE: YHC hasn’t practiced much with cadence, so I wanted to get some in today. Unanimously confimed, I’m terrible at it. Come bust my chops tomorrow at Heartbreak Ridge for my Q.
THANG: Clockwork Merkins – OYO. 5 at midnight / 3 o’clock / 6 o’clock / 9 o’clock. Repeato counter clockwise.
Mosey to top of the stairs of pain. Collect rocks. Circle up. 2 left arm / 2 right arm Merkins at each rock. Plank walk to next rock, clockwise back to original rock. Next up, counter clockwise, 1 left arm / 1 right arm Merkin back to your rock.
Pass the sugar. Hardywood, you’re up. Saunter to the bottom of the stairs. HR Merkins – run to the bottom of the next set of stairs. Squats. Hump to top of the stairs. Burpees. Repeato. 5 /10 /15. Shakedown’s turn to serve coffee.
Tennis Court: 4 corners. 10 Merkins / 20 LBCs / 30 2-count Mountain Climbers / 40 squats – Progressive.
Native American run – sorta – to the stage left over from last night’s music fest. Attempt box jumps. To shakey. Mosey back down to the site of Clockwork Merkins. Burpees / Box Jumps x 20. Dang!
Sugar Sock, you’ve never been to Batteau before, so you’re up. Make sure the food is hot, and bring us home brother! Mosey to tennis courts for Triple Check: Leg Lifts / Squats / Lap around tennis courts x 3.
Back to the Flag
Great work today gentlemen, especially to FNG ABBA. I hope the pain was as promised. Look forward to seeing you back out soon.
Thoughts and prayers this morning for a few of our brothers specifically, and all of them collectively. Great thing about F3 is that no matter where you turn, there’s a brother nearby. Lean on us when needed, hold us up when you can. Awesome stuff!
Puppy Pile is this Saturday, 7:05.
Shakedown is kicking butt to kick children’s cancer’s butt. See prior backblasts to help him out.
