Six of F3RVA’s finest posted at Batteau for another weekly installment of hot potato. We all survived, but barely.

Swirly Q: SSHs x 20. Helicopters x 10. DQs x 10. Imperial Walkers x 10. Merkins x 10. Mosey to the F3 quarry. Grab a partner / grab a rock. Partner 1 lunges to first light and back while partner 2 completes overhead presses. Repeato for each of the following: High knees + Curls. Butt Kickers + WWII Presses. Karaoke + (I’m smoked / Can’t remember).

Vinny Q: Mosey to bottom of Hill of Ill Repute. Partner Up. Partner 1 runs to the top of the hill and back while partner 2 Crawl Bears. Switch and repeat as follows: Bernie Sanders lunges and Triple Jump Squats until the PAX gets to the top of the hill.

Faceplant Q: Mosey back down to the lake. F3 Raleigh celebrated 8 years this weekend. Run the lake loop and complete 8 Merkins at each lamp post. Hell of a way to celebrate.

Swirly Q x 2: NA run to the top of the Hill of Ill Repute. Down into the pit. 20 Dips and 10 Incline Merkins x 3 sets. Back to the Flag for Mary. Cross Leg Lifts x 10 per leg. Alabama Prom Dates x 10. Flutter Kicks x 10. All IC.

Sugar Sock took us out.

Announcements: Grow Ruck is coming. Dogpile is at 7:00 a.m. that morning and will be standard procedure. It is not a ruck, but is part of the Grow Ruck operation. There will also likely be Breakfast Club and a 6:00 a.m. Dogpile as well. Plan to hit both or the 7:00 a.m. if you can only hit one.

NMS: Finally some nice weather for a beatdown. We were glad to see Sugar Sock out and well, and to have Posh join us for his maiden Batteau beatdown. They both crushed it.

Sippy Cup DROVE to the work out. But he had an excuse. He paced Bootleg this weekend at the Belmonte 50k, and by all reports, Bootleg crushed it. Surviving snowy conditions and debilitating cramps 7 miles from the finish line. Way to crush it Bootleg, and way to be a model F3 brother Sippy!

Swirly’s vest doesn’t have a name yet, that I know of, but it posted again today. Hell of a job today Swirly. Way to bang it out!

Enjoy the day men.
