“Why are We Doing This??!!”


7 rugged dudes (including one 2.0) came out to see what the first workout at the creek was going to be like.

Hallelujah run around the church

COP — arm circles
jack squats
plank jack shoulder taps

Curb Toe Taps —
30 seconds on, 30 seconds rest
40 seconds on, 20 seconds rest
50 seconds on, 10 seconds rest
1 minute on

One person bear crawls the loop, the other does 5 burpees and runs to catch up.  Switcho until the loop is done.

To the shelter for

Triple Checks —
1) derkins, bench situps, one person runs to touch a car
2) donkey kicks off bench, dips and run the length of the driveway and back

15 skull crushers (IC) each side.
Then 10 skull crushers a little faster each side

Back to the Flag for a little Mary

Merkin round the world —
1 merkin each, then 2, then 3 then 4 — all do 5 together

Numbers, Names, Emoji took us out!

YHC heard the above quote from Fife this morning — don’t think it was aimed directly at YHC, but just in general.  There are mornings that YHC asks the same question.  Why are we doing this?  Is it for the muscles that we are shaping?  For the endurance and stamina that is growing?  For the endorphin rush?  YHC thinks it is so much more than that — it’s about the camaraderie, the shared experiences, the struggle, and as my friend Miley so thoughtfully put it — “It’s the Climb!”
YHC’s M is about to undergo a major surgery that will challenge our family’s fortitude and endurance.  F3 has given YHC the ability to push through things, to endure and to come out on the other side better for it.  Thanks for all the support and drive you have given YHC through the years.
Why are we doing this?  You know why.  Keep doing it and invite your friends!

  2. The Carpenter on

    I couldn’t hold back the laughter when I heard Fife say this. He voiced what all of us have thought at some point. I was reminded this morning of why we do this in the gloom. There is nothing like being the PAX and conquering the challenges together.

    Opus, we will be praying for your M and for you as you support her. We are here for you and your family as you go through this season.

  3. Great Q Opus! Way to bring it this morning. Praying for your M and family during this time!

  4. Heard I had to read this BB this morning, we’ll said Opus. Prayers for your M and know you’ve got brothers with you to help through this.

  5. Awesome BB Opus. We are here for you brother and will be praying for a successful surgery and speedy recovery.

  6. Well done, great workout Opus! God speed and hope this week and recovery phase goes really well and QUICK as possible.
