November started of with NO burpees. 6 PAX enjoyed YHC’s return Q. YHC has spent the last week stamping the F3 Passport in CarPEX (Cary/Apex, NC), Raleigh, NC, and Savannah, GA. Music greeted the PAX as they rolled up to the AO in cars and on bikes (aka the stealth machine). More on the music and stealth machine later; now to the workout.
25 mountain climbers – In cadence (IC)
20 jump squats – On My Count (OYO)
30 shoulder circle – IC
Mosey to front of middle school
Partner Carry 11s: Partner up. On each end, complete full iteration of 11s. Side 1, 10 wide arm merkins and 1 star jump. Side 2, 9 wide arm merkins and 2 star jumps… To transit between sides (approximately 50 yards apart), partner carry.
Bataan Death March to Softball Field: Similar to Indian run but back PAX completes 10 merkins (typically completed with 5 burpees, but remember NO burpees). An “attempt” was made at the F3 Jody during the march.
250/250/250: With same partner, complete 250 merkins, 250 side straddle hops, and 250 jump squats. PAX #1 completes exercises at home plate while PAX #2 runs to right field foul pole, then left field foul pole, then back home. Flapjack. Excerices do not have to be completed sequentially (i.e., can start jump squats before finishing merkins).
Mosey back to shovel flags. 9 minutes of Mary. Big boy situps, scissor kicks, Freddy Mercury’s.
Dealer’s choice where current Q appoints next Q: Bobby Hurley’s (Funny Car), 6 inch circuit (Cheeks), box cutters (SpaceMonkey), Captain Thor (SubMac), and ski jumps (Deflator).
Circle of Trust (COT):
We are nothing without love. Relationship with God first. Relationships with people second. Keep things in balance (one of YHC’s biggest struggles).
“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-7, MSG)
Ball of Man
Nov. 11 is one-year convergence at #StinkHill at 0700. Clear your calendars.
Dec. 9 2 p.m. – 7 p.m.: GoRuck Light in Charlottesville. Clown car from Mt. Trashmore. http://f3rva.org/2017/10/12/pre-blast-goruck-light-in-charlottesville/
The music that was playing prior to the workout was “The Proof of Your Love” by For King and Country. YHC thought about reading 1 Cor. 13:1-7 in his best Australian accent but settled for southern charm instead.
YHC completely blanked on the 4th priciple during the F3 Jody. For everyone’s reference,
“The 4th one is we’re rain or shine”
“Hot or cold, fartsack DECLINE”
Thank you Deflator picking up YHC’s slack.
F3 had some covert espianoge going on prior to the workout. Funny Car using his super silent bicycle, provided the PAX the FiA count prior to the workout.
Great work on keeping the counts during the 250/250/250.
