Mosey to playground.  PAX were instructed to do 5 Burpees OYO as fast as possible (to determine who was fastest at burpees).  After this was done, YHC sorted the 5 PAX present into two teams – one of 3 and one of 2 (all later activities done roughly in these teams).

Then, PAX did burpees OMOM – start a minute time (up to 20 minutes).  First minute do one burpee, second minute do two burpees, etc.  While easy at first the PAX eventually hit their “burpee limit” between 9-15 burpees.

Then mosey to tennis court.  PAX held plank (or squat) while one of their teammates did BearCrawl across both courts with lunge-walk back.  Team of 3 did x2 of this; team of 2 did x3 each this.

Mosey to parking lot.  PAX had one member of team doing out-and-back sprint (aka Suicide) across parking lot.

3s at Bingo Hall

THE SCENE:  Dark.  In typical Thursday fashion, it was wet.  We started with 2 PAX, and we slowly worked our way up to 5 PAX.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER:  I don’t really know what I’m doing.  You’re here because you want to be.

WARM-O-RAMA:

Squats x 10 IC
SSH x 25 IC
Imperial Walkers x 10 IC
Hillbillies x 10 IC
Arm Circles x 10 IC
Reverse Arm Circles x 10 IC
Merkins x 10 IC

THA-THANG:

Split into teams.  Each team has to perform 20 rounds of a set of exercises.  Only one man per team can be working at a time, and you must alternate each round.  (Goal was to have each man complete 10 rounds.  We had odd numbers, so two men on team 2 did sets at the same time.)  Winning team did 10 burpees each.  Losing team did 10 burpees each, loaded with a 60# sandbag.

  • Round 1:  3 handstand merkins, 3 squat jumps, 3 merkins.  Team 1 won.
  • Round 2:  3 pull-ups, 3 alternating jump lunges (2 is 1), 3 hand release merkins.  Team 1 won.
  • Round 3:  3 dry docks, 3 squats, 3 big boy situps (feet on the wall, hands have to touch wall).  Guess who won?!  Team 1.

MARY:  Shrug.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:  Don’t isolate.

MOLESKIN:  YHC’s hope for this workout was to encourage a more intense pace by utilizing shorter sets.  It worked well.  60# sandbags are great.  T-Claps to Chuck E. Cheese for wanting in on the “fun” though he was on the winning team.

Leaving tomorrow morning for 2 weeks of annual training with the Army.  Last night my M said that she could tell it was getting close; apparently when I’m a day or two away from drill/AT/big work project/etc, I start to check out mentally as I prep for the trip.  My challenge to myself and anyone else for whom this is an issue is to do a better job segmenting that stuff.  Be present mentally for your family even when external stressors are competing for your attention.

THA-THANG:
Wild Card Mosey. YHC bought the f3 workout cards and received them in September & have failed to use them in a workout. The plan was to go lightpole to lightpost on a mosey drawing a card at each successive lightpole and executing the exercises, so on and so forth. 

However, I chose to take us up to Jerry’s Sno Cones and back to STARTEX 😉

Because it was 1.2 miles from STARTEX to Jerry’s, I figured the lightpole idea wouldn’t be feasible time wise. So we moseyed up Wells Station Road and drew a card at each non-residence – and there were several churches and businesses. I think all in all we worked out each muscle group just a hair with each PAX drawing at least 3 cards each…and of course we covered 2.4 miles!

Jerry’s was closed of course…

MARY:

We made it back to STARTEX 😉 for American Hammers x25 IC and finished.
