“… it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness.” — Charles Dickens, A Tale ot Two Cities

10 really smart fools showed up this morning for some F3 fun.

Here is what took place —
COP — lbc’s, am hammers, flutterkicks, v-ups, alternating shoulder taps and merkins 15 each,  repeato with 10 each

speed bump burpees — run to first speed bump, do 5 burpees, when done do alternating shoulder taps until the 6 is done.  add one burpee each time we hit a new speed bump until we get to ten.

More Alternating Shoulder Taps, a few rotating merkins until the light got light enough  for us to

Mosey to the big hill behind the football field

Modified Dora— partner up — one runs up and down hill, complete together 50 ww2 situps, 100 merkins, and 150 squats

Mosey back to the flag.  Did it really take that long??

Check preblast for info on the Convergence on Labor Day at Three Lakes park.  Let’s have a good showing from Davillians
A couple of runs in October that sound truly dreadful.  But if you are interested, check out the preblasts. 🙂

Whenever YHC thinks of F3, he thinks of this masterful quote.  When YHC tries to EH some new guys to come out to F3, everything sounds great to them — it’s free, it’s with other cool dudes, it’s you vs you, etc.  until YHC says 5:30 AM.  Then it doesn’t sound so great.  Is it foolishness to start your day with a crazy workout?  Some might think so — YHC believes it is genius.  Most geniuses have a little crazy built into the fabric of who they are — Einstein, Newton, Faraday, Dickens, Galileo, Michelangelo — all had a major impact on the world as we know it and all possessed a little cray cray as well.  For example, Michelango almost always wore all of his clothes to bed including his boots.  In fact, when he did take off his boots every once in a while some of his skin would peel off with his boots.  OUCH.
Let’s get a little crazy because just enough crazy can change the world we live in.  Maybe not like Michael Faraday did, but we can change people’s lives through these workouts.  YHC knows this first hand and would not have come out it it wasn’t for another crazy guy (The Carpenter) inviting YHC out for the first time and other guys pushing alongside to better themselves.  So people might think you are crazy for doing these workouts at 5:30 in the frickin morning, but you know better.  You know it takes a little crazy to make this world a better place and that is why you do this F3 thing.  Keep on EH’ing.  Someone will take the bait and they will be the better for it!

YHC has nothing to say about this particular workout except it was good to see (and hear) Labrat this morning.

Later,
Opus

  1. Great Q, Opus! I was thinking to myself, “I wonder if we’ll ever do that crazy hill in the back corner at Atlee?” Must have been a premonition.

    Glad to have Flounder out today and to have Opus leading. Opus invited me and I invited Flounder. I have invited many other, but Tyler you’re the first guy crazy enough to accept!
