Many Questions, but Today Only One


Nine fine gentlemen gathered at the no longer darkest AO in RVA to compare winter gloves and who wore them best. Eight launched promptly at 0530 to the front of the school while we picked up one that ran to the AO on the way. COP was frosty and was as follows:


  • SSH x25
  • Imperial Walkers x10
  • Helicopters x10
  • Copperhead Squats x10
  • Don Quixotes x10
  • Mountain Climbers x10
  • LBCs x20
  • Merkins x10

The Thang

Very short jaunt across the street to the church parking lot, avoiding curb obstacles, for the first set of exercises. This exercise is called Escalating Fibonacci Arrow Trifecta Plus Bonus. Start at the first arrow (arrow 0). Three exercises at each arrow, running back to the start after each arrow’s exercises were finished. Exercises were Merkins, Squats, WWIIs. When we made it back to the start we finished the set with said number of burpees. There were 8 arrows (plus the zero’th arrow) so we did sets with the following reps 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21.

Mosey back to the now very well lit blacktop for a similar format but following the numbers painted on the ground. We ran to a number, did 3 exercises of that number, then ran back and did burpees for that number. Exercises were Diamond Merkins, Jump Squats, WWIs. Numbers were 1, 2, 3, 6, 5, 4. Wait for Fudd to collect his sweater and off we went.

Medium length meander to the top of Lindsay for more exercises and running. Partner up. 1st partner runs 25% of the way down the hill while the other performs an exercise. Flapjack and repeat. Then 50%, 75%, 100% with different exercises. Exercises were Werkins, Lunges, SSHs, LBCs. We didn’t get to 100% so we did LBCs to collect the 6.

BTTVSF where announcements were made and YHC took us out.


  • Happy hour 3-6 Saturday at Hardywood West Creek with some F3 brothers from The Capital region
  • Honeydo Sings the Carols @ Fudd’s house on 12/18. Details on Slack.


YHC was promised questions a plenty, only received a few, with the rest being substituted for $h!t talking. Said talking subsided after number 2 of Mr. Fibonacci’s sequence. YHC believes everyone was disappointed there was an 8th arrow. Well done fellas.

Kudos to Pigskin who showed up, modified, and still crushed many of the exercises. Find a way to post. He did. What’s your excuse?

Mumblechatter was high between exercises but not so much during. Too much counting? My 5th grade math teacher would be proud.

See all y’all in the gloom one day this week.

Splinter out.
