Golfing with the Bermies

Not as foggy as yesterday, but every bit as Gloomy.

Full version for the first 9.  Abbreviated, out-of-breath version for Mayberry when he arrived 4 minutes into the Merkins/BBSU set.

SSH x20 IC
Windmills x15 IC
Hillbillies x15 IC
Arm Circles x10 IC (each direction)

F3 Golf:  a series of 5 minute sets, with 1 minute of rest in between.  Each set consisted of 2 exercises. The PAX would perform 12 reps of each exercise OYO, then 11 reps of each OYO, and so on until 5 minutes expired.  At the end of each round, each person’s score would be the lowest number of reps that were successfully completed for both exercises.  For example, if time expired while you were still working on 4 reps of exercise 2, your score for that round would be 5.  Lowest score at the end of the Thang wins.

Set 1:  Merkins/BBSU.  Winners: 7 tied with 1 point
Set 2: SSH/Flutter Kicks.  Winners: Flatland and Mudpants (1)
Set 3: Burpees/WWI Situps.  Winner: Tomb Raider (8)
Set 4: Mountain Climbers/Squats.  Winners: 5 tied (1)
Set 5: Werkins/Monkey Humpers.  Winners: All tied (1)
Set 6: Carolina Dry Docks/Imperial Squat Walkers.  Winners: Flatland and Tomb Raider (5)

Final Scores:
Flatland: 18
Mudpants: 19
Tomb Raider: 20
Iceman: 21
Photoshop: 21
Lipton: 25
Choker: 29
Big Top: 33
Feta: 34
Mayberry: undetermined; he missed the 1st set and I don’t think I explained the scoring system very well in between sets for him due to my oxygen-starved brain.

10 PAX: Big Top, Choker (QIC), Feta, Flatland, Iceman, Lipton, Mayberry, Mudpants, Photoshop, Tomb Raider

When F3 was first pitched to me a year and a half ago it sounded pretty good, until I learned about the “workouts led in a rotating fashion” bit.  I didn’t want any part of that, and I almost didn’t come.  But after getting to know the PAX and seeing how the workouts go, I discovered it was not a big deal.  I made mistakes like everyone did, but received nothing but support and encouragement from everyone.

This year, I decided to kick it up a notch and made it a goal to Q at least once at every F3Memphis AO.  This was my challenge to the PAX:  set a goal that stretches you, write it down, and get after it.  And if you have not Q’d yet, talk to your AOQ and get on the schedule!  

Kotters to Mayberry!
