It Always Rains When I Q

THE SCENE:  The overnight rain turned to a drizzle and dissipated at 0525 leaving behind damp grass, hostile puddles, and a silent avenue of approach for potential enemies wanting to ambush us in the dark. What was a bustling election day parking lot on Tuesday had turned into a silent concrete slab awaiting the soft touch of gloves belonging to men who had come to do work. Also, Speedy forgot bananas.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: 5 PAX were welcomed and disclaimed. Bandwagon showed up at 0540 and was given the disclaimer. Proclaimed the mission of F3, what the 3 F’s are, and the 5 components of each workout.


15 Overhead Arm Claps, 15 Arm Circles, 11 Daisy Pickers, 15 Imperial Walkers, 15 Squats, and a Mosey.


PAX paired off. One PAX would run approximately 200 meters out and back while the other PAX performed the exercises below. Once the runner returned, he would pick up from where his partner finished until all reps were completed. The first pair to finish helped the second pair to complete the last of their reps making the Monkey Humpers a little more tolerable. Original plan was to do 250 BBS, 200 Merkins, and 150 Monkey Humpers, but had to be adjusted.

  • 150 Carolina Dry Docks
  • 200 Squats
  • 150 Big Boy Sit-ups
  • 100 Merkins
  • 50 Monkey Humpers

Mosey to pavilion

25 “Inverkins” (that’s what I’m calling it, at least). PAX laid under a picnic table and pulled their chests up to the bottom side of the picnic table while their feet remained on the ground. It looked like an Up-Side-Down or Inverted Merkin.

No MARY as sit-ups were part of the main workout.
5 PAX. Speedy, Third Wheel, Boba Fett, Grimace. Bandwagon posted from 0540-0600.
Discussed our habits, time frame to develop them, and what scripture says about our habits. Boba Fett got a shout out for having fantastic F3 posting habits as he hasn’t missed a workout since he joined if I’m not mistaken. Respect!

AO Olympics tomorrow at the Mothership 0700.

Army Physical Fitness Test at The Annex on Tuesday for those who want to see how they shape up to Army Standards.
