Turtles and Bunnies

THE SCENE:
Arrived at 0435 in order to pull off the Blue Collar/Morg doubleheader.  Zima is forcing us to ruck 100 miles this month (by offering a patch), and BAM! was Qing a ruck at the Collar today.  RIP the rest of the day.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER:
Did it extra gooder because a FNG was present.

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH x20 IC
Imperial Walkers x15 IC
Windmills x15 IC
Hillbillies x15 IC
Arm Circles x10 IC (each direction)

Each of these was preceded by a random PAX dropping a little knowledge on the FNG with regards to the F3 Mission and Core Principles.

THA-THANG:
Tortoise and the Hare BOMBS:
Partner up with one coupon for each pair. Partner #1 picks up coupon and starts walking. Partner #2 does first exercise on the list and then chases down Partner #1. When he catches his partner, they swap: Partner #2 takes the coupon while Partner #1 does the same exercise. Repeat until all exercises have been done 5 times BY EACH partner.  An assortment of sandbags, rucks, and CMUs was made available for the teams to choose from.

  • 5 Burpees (50 per pair)
  • 10 Overhead Claps (100 per pair)
  • 15 Merkins (150 per pair)
  • 20 Big Boy Sit-ups (200 per pair)
  • 25 Squats (250 per pair)

MARY:
She was all up in the THANG.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
14: Bobsled, Choker, Croissant, Esquire, Gym Shorts, Miracle Ear, Orange Julius, Pacifier (FNG), Potter, Ratio, Sleep Number, Soulja Boy, Wall Builder, Woodpecker

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We do a great job within F3 pushing ourselves with goals, challenges, etc.  These are also great tools to help our families accelerate.  Green Monster has challenged me, my M, and our 2.0s to walk/run/ruck a mile a day as a family throughout January.  He made a chart for the kids to fill in as we go, and we win a pizza party at the end of the month if we are successful.  If I had asked my kids to walk a mile a day for no particular reason, it would have been met with skepticism and likely disdain.  But presenting it to them as a challenge with a defined goal and reward has been very successful!  Highly recommend.

MOLESKIN:
FNG naming logic:  Pacifier is 8 years older than his M.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Lots of stuffs going on: 3F opportunity this weekend, downtown brewery ruck, Tigers bouncyhoops game, Equinox challenge.  Check Slack and/or the preblast for more details.
