Disclaimer was called and we moseyed up the parking lot. Tried to EH a couple of men standing by, but turned out they are leading a cross country group of shorties. Took left, down the stairs near the pavilion and back up the other stairs. Some PAX called out that it would have been faster to go straight, which is true but less fun. Continued the mosey to the middle of the baseball fields.
Holding low squat for the six, we continued to hold the position as YHC asked about the core principles of F3 and why we have them. After discussing the first two we stood up for some arm circles, while discussing the 3rd. Down to holding a low plank we discussed the 4th principle and how F3 is not just a workout group, a free version of orange theory, but a leadership group. 10 IC Merkins and then some SSH. Down on our six, holding 6″ we discussed the 5th principle that provides the fellowship and faith aspects to the beatdown.
We moseyed to the lower parking lot next to the tennis fields.
Thang – 11s
At the bottom BLIMPS – starting with 10 each – Burpees, Lunges (alpha), Imperial Walkers (alpha), Merkins, Plank Jacks and Squats.
At the top of the parking lot BOMBS – starting with 1 each – Burpees, Overhead Claps, Merkins, BBSU and Squats.
Funyon shared that he adjusted an older country song (possibly John Legend, Used to Love U) to be about YHC. I appreciated the sentiments. Later heard Cox and Funyon singing, which told me the beatdown wasn’t hard enough for them if they still had the capacity to sing. They tried to assure me it’s the result of being oxygen deprived, but YHC had it doubts.
Near the end slight modification for the last 3 rounds for the gazelles – Merkins are now Hand-Release and BBSU are to be done uphill.
YHC called recover before everyone could finish. After a messed up 10 count we moseyed back to the flag and circled up in the field for some Mary. 43 IC LBCs, since YHC never celebrated his recent 43rd BD at the Widowmaker, followed by a crowd pleaser – Monkey Humpers, 15 IC. Time.
Some PAX have covid positive family members at home, so are avoiding the group workouts. Prayers for health across the nation for god to answer the prayers we are not courageous enough to say out loud.
YHC shared plans to launch a Virtual Q source Ruck in a couple of months.
