A Little Mosey Up Turd Mountain

THE SCENE:
Clear skies, full hearts; can’t lose.  Perfect day for a workout!  The parking lot  was even cleanish; there wasn’t a hypodermic needle or a dead body anywhere in sight.  TCLAPS to the Spiritual Patriot!

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
Given to standard for the 2 FNGs present.  Additional substandard disclaimers were given to Meter Maid and a few others doing Meter Maid impressions.  They do not get fruit cup.

*NOTE:  It’s possible likely that I’m completely wrong about which person answered each question.

THA-THANG:
Slow mosey around the 1-mile path.  10 cones were set out evenlyish with one or more of the exercises listed below taped to them.  PAX were instructed to stop at each cone and hold plank until the Six arrived.  The group would then perform the exercises and mosey to the next cone.  The first cone had the first exercise.  The second had the first two exercises, etc.; the last cone had all 10 exercises.

5 burpees
10 merkins
15 BBS
20 LBC
25 Squats
30 Carolina Dry Docks
35 Alternating Shoulder Taps
40 SSH
45 Overhead Claps
50 Mountain Climbers

We were halfway through with the 9th cone when I realized we only had 4 minutes remaining.  We Omaha’d and moseyed to the last cone, picked it up and returned to the Shovel Flag where PAX were instructed to complete as much of the last cone as possible before time expired.

Totals (if all cones had been completed):  50 burpees, 90 merkins, 120 BBS, 140 LBC, 150 squats, 150 CDD, 140 shoulder taps, 120 SSH, 90 overhead claps, 50 mountain climbers

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Yesterday’s APFT CoT was about how we are not competing against each other in that event, but against our own previous scores.  I was thinking about that last night, and how it applies a little differently to regular workouts.  We do compete against each other during regular workouts but hopefully in a good way.  Competition pushes us to do more than we would do on our own.  But we have to be careful not to make the mistake of letting it be *all* about the competition.  If you rush to finish a set of burpees faster than your buddy but your form suffers as a result, you’re missing the point.  The point is to Accelerate our fitness; bad form or rushed/lax reps for the sake of a number do not do you any good.

Embrace the positive aspects of friendly competition but guard yourself against letting the negative aspects take over.

MOLESKIN:
Completing all 10 cones will require a shorter Warm-O-Rama.
The Annex Turd is back!  RIP Levee Fridays.

FNG Naming Logic:
Greenpeace:  works for an oil company
Kneepad:  admitted to enjoying playing volleyball

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
There probably should have been some.
