Archives: Hitting it's stride

  • When: 20170709
  • QIC: Dreamliner
  • The PAX: Cowboy, Gandalf, Sunshine, Scully, Dreamliner
  • Our current off-the-books “slow” runners club (SRC) is starting to hit it’s stride with 5 PAX this morning at SlothHill.

    The Thang:

    Warmarama: 30 (not 25) side straddle hops (In Cadence), 20 mountain climbers (IC).

    Run portion was based on the Reese Strong 5K the hard way. Yes, this is the same race where the Pink Shovel Flag originated. The rules are simple. Every 5 minutes, on the 5 minute mark, stop and complete 25 merkins and 25 squats. All told six stops with one lap around lake, full ridge run, and short out and back from base around the front side to the steps.

    Mary: Captain Thor (1:4 ratio of big boy sit-ups and American hammers) from 1:4 up to 4:16.


    Circle of trust (COT):

    Philippians 2:1-5 (ESV)

    1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus

    Discussed how the root of most conflicts in YHC’s relationships have been about both parties putting their own interest over that of the other person.

    Prayer requests and ball of man (BOM).



    It was great to meet Cowboy, an FNG last week, for the first time. Look forward to seeing you at many more workouts.

    Remember the QuadP for the month of July is #TakeAVacation challenge. We want everyone to get out there and explore what F3 Hampton Roads has to offer. Here’s how it works:

    1 point – Attending an F3 workout outside of Hampton Roads
    2 points – Attending an F3 Hampton Roads workout at an AO that you have never attended before
    3 points – Q-ing an F3 Hampton Roads workout at an AO that you have never Q-ed before

    NEXT SATURDAY is the F3 family picnic. More information will be coming from SpaceMonkey on Monday but the main points are that the workout will take place at the Virginia Beach waterfront at Hillier Ignite Fitness Park and NOT at Mt. Trashmore. Workout time is 0700 with M’s and 2.0’s showing up around 0815.
