Sippy did Post!


First to arrive at Batteau with Swirly jogging in and the Flag was planted. YHC forgot his watch so Shakedown alerted the Gloom, 0530. No Sippy Cup in site….time to mosey.

Down the street to Forest Hill, along the sidewalk and almost able to place an order for coffee. COP-x 25 SSH, x 25 Imperial Walkers, x 10 Don Quixote’s, x 25 Freddie Mercuries, x 25 Flutter Kicks, x 25 Plank Jacks. Mosey back up the sidewalk to middle part of Forest Hill Park.

11’s- Squats on side, run down hill and up hill to the other side, Merkins. Only variable, Bernie Sanders run, up hill to Merkins….aka backwards. So x 1 Squat, run, x 10 Merkins. Q handed over to Shakedown. Mosey to tennis courts. In honor of Shakedown’s first Hot Potato Q……

Triple Check-Plerkins and Bear Crawls. One Pax Planks, one Pax member performs merkins with legs on planking members back, third Pax bear crawls to fence and back. Nice work to Soul Glo and Shakedown for making it work. Swirly handed the Q and over to the playground we moseyed.

First exercise-Chazz Michael Michael= Partner up. Partner 1 grabs monkey bar and places legs over Partner 2 shoulder. Performs lat raises. Only Partner 2 is facing Partner 1. 3 sets of 5. Awkward!

Second exercise: At playground border, x 15 dips, x 10 merkins. Repeat 3 times.

Third Exercise: x 20 Swing Jacks (2 Swings available) while PAX performs step ups on picnic bench till swing available. Times up and mosey back to the flag. And there was Sippy Cup!

Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Announcements: Field Day, May 11. See your Nano regions captain for uniform. Mothers Day, May 12! Guys, don’t forget!

YHC took us out!

NMS: 0525, Marv drives around and asks if anyone knows where a guy could work out. Marv parked at another lot. And, Swirly asked several times if anyone saw Sippy Cup on their way over. YHC was going to take Pax down to the lake from road facing Forest Hill but caution exercised due to poor lighting. And COP was there…different.

Bleeder, hope you are only hurt and not injured! Those hill runs are no joke.

Marv, YHC is definitely closer to you after Chazz Michael Michael exercise.

Shakedown and Swirly, excellent workout this am! Soul Glo, keep up the hard work and cardio gets better!

And as we returned to the flag, there was Sippy Cup….asking “Where were you guys?” Garmins are not all keeping the same time. Sorry, Sippy Cup, COP was in weird place this morning and 11’s quickly silenced mumblechatter. Next time COP will be delayed by 1 min because you are a regular Batteau Pax member!

Be super today. Only those who post understand.

Loud and Proud,

  1. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Way to work guys !
    See y’all in the gloom – great to have Marv join us this morning ..

  2. Great to have Marv at Bateau- Happy to have SH back out. Remember man, Swirly couldn’t run a mile when he started and he’s run a 100k race now. My Cardio was crap too when I got into CrossFit right before joining F3. It comes quickly. Way to work this morning and way to make the Chaz Mike Mike’s look easy.

    Heal quickly Bleeder.

    Happy Nurses Appreciation week Flatline! Go forth and save lives brother.

    Y’all notice Swirly picked the steepest part of that hill to work out on. Way to go Swirly.

  3. Well, today I paid for my tendency to show up with a minute or so to spare. I rolled in at 5:30:30 or so by my watch and it was a ghost town except for the flag. After about 10 minutes of exploring I gave up and decided to have some fun with a rock and the loop around the lake. I tested out a few new exercises ideas on myself that could crop up soon.
    Shakedown–I did check my watch this morning after I got home, and it was exactly 1 second slower that the verified time online. I think your watch was fast!

  4. Dang – I will check mine. I hooked up to satellites this morning and yesterday. In any case, we will wait a little longer or you will show up earlier ?
