A clear cool Wednesday morning brought 10 men out to see what Rosie had in store at SOT. It’s been a while since YHC Q’d a bootcamp but no complaints here, it’s been great to get beatdowns from a variety of the PAX over the past couple months.
Start out with a Rosie mosey to the bus loop for the disclaimer and celebration of my new favorite day, February 26th. 2 years in a row the Hokies have beaten the Dookies on 2/26, you’re welcome Wahoos. 5 burpees to celebrate the margin of victory. Continue the warm up with SSH, Russian Soldiers, IW, Peter Parkers, HRM, Alt. shoulder taps, LBC.
Since the bus parking spaces have been conveniently numbered next up was a Burp in a Box. Parking space #1 – 1 burpee then run to the flagpole, space #2 -2 burpees and continue up to 7. Lap the school to the front.
Curb crawl, these used to be a staple at the old SOT and since Lugnut brought back some memories last week, why not continue it on the curbs. Up to 5 and back down. Mosey down to the field house.
Next up is Dora, with a twist of course. 100 jump squats, 200 2-ct Freddies, 300 Imperial Walkers 1-ct. Every time you switch, 10 boo-yah merkins with your partner.
Back up to the cars for some Mary – Starting with crunchy frogs and ending with Superman and some other stuff in between.
Numbers/Names/No F3 related announcements – prayers for everyone in Mr. Roper’s office, (and not just because they work with him) he has a few people and their families dealing with the late stages of cancer.
Orange Crush back for 3 days in a row after post #1 last Monday is impressive. Lugnut, not a fan of the Hokies or the burpees we celebrated the victory with. The win does give UVA a better path to the #1 ACC seed though. You are all welcome for the added twist to Dora, it sucked so it will certainly make a return. Note to self: curb crawls are terrible no matter what AO you are at. No New Market gossip today, so we had that going for us.
COT – YHC closed today with a heartfelt thank you to all the PAX across F3 RVA. The support that F3 provides has been important to keep me in the right mind to help my family with sweat therapy, positive thinking, distraction and the general knowledge that someone had my back. Three years ago today my daughter woke up with a fever and joint pain and what was the beginning of a difficult stretch. After many doctor visits we found out she had juvenile arthritis. Long story short, last weekend we gave her what we hope is the last injection before she is in full remission. I didn’t talk about it much, like most guys, but everyone has their own burdens and problems so you never know when you are someone’s support crew. Thank you all and continue to be the support that someone else needs, whether you know it or not.
Everything is coming up Rosie.
