Lazy Doras – again – because men choose to do hard things

THE SCENE: A drizzling 47° at the shiniest AO in F3Memphis


Standard-ish Zima WOR here:
SSH IC x50
Daisy Pickers IC x15
IW IC x15
Arm circles IC x10 (+ reverse)

Modified Dora 1-2-3s aka Lazy Doras. Again.

Partners performed 100 Merkins, 200 LBCs, & 300 Squats as a team. While P1 starts with 10 Merkins, P2 planks, then switch. Continue switching between Merkins and plank until 100 total Merkins reached.

Next, while P1 does 20 LBCs, P2 performs a 6″ leg hold until P1 is finished, then switch. Continue switching until all 200 LBCs are completed.

Finally, P1 does 25 squats while P2 does squat hold, then switch. Continue switching until 300 total squats are completed.

Finished with rounds consisting of of 25 dips, 25 Carolina Dry Docks, and 25 Step-ups (five rounds).

About a minute of Hurricane Hoedowns (which is about a minute too long)

Fugitive, No Fuego, Ragequit, Tiger Lily, Zima (QIC)

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.” James 1:22-25

F3 is a constant reminder that if we don’t continue to do what we know we need to – posting, in this case – that our fitness and eventually our health will be negatively affected. Likewise, we know what we need to do to feed our spiritual lives – what we need to do to insure we are equipped to handle the struggles we all face – but if we choose to to ignore doing the right things, we will miss out on the blessings that come with dedication.

Do the hard things, but physically and spiritually – make the choice to attack your weaknesses and make them your strength every day. 

Props to Tiger Lily for always choosing to do hard things – he’s rucking home from work this afternoon (~18 miles) then posting at 3AM to help lead the Gorlick SIM tomorrow. Beast mode.

None, but YHC encouraged everyone to train their minds and bodies constantly to be better.
