Literally perfect. Cool. Partly cloudy. Slight breeze. PLOCI: sleeveless, bordering on chippendale.

1 long lap around the AO
Line drills. Each pax chooses a card from the F3 workout deck. Then run to the first set of cones and do the exercise x5 and run back. Then repeat at each subsequent cone. When finished, join the 6 and all finish together.
Grab your next card and repeat. Discard your card in one of the buckets. If you miss, 5 Merkin penalty. YHC maybe hit the bucket once…
None. No time.
It is YHCs personal thinking that a major tenet of F3 is that we do hard things for the sole reason that it’s hard. Could Divot have modified the exercise when he pulled Bear Crawls for his first card? Yes. But he didn’t. Cause it was hard. Could he have quit halfway through cause the asphalt hurt his gloveless hands? Yes. But he didn’t. Cause it was hard. Could the rest of the pax waited for him at the finish and let him finish alone? Yes. But they didn’t. Cause it was hard. Did the pax didn’t let a little (or a LOT tbh) temporary pain get in the way of what we were really there to do? No.
Proverbs 14:23 All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
And believe me, those bear crawls are going to bring us all some physical profit.
YHC gets a lot of flack for his choice of workout attire. This is right in line with doing hard things. None of us are out at F3 to be comfortable. So if I can prepare myself by choosing to be cold now, so that next time I don’t have a choice, I’m better able to deal with it, then I’m gonna choose to be cold. YHC believes we are at F3 to train for something ahead in life. It’s going to be hard. It might be cold. We won’t know what it is or when it is coming. But when it happens, an F3 pax will be ready.
