Time for an anniversary Q for YHC. Four years of F3, does that mean I graduated?


As another PAX or two rolled in we did our warm-up in place:
Imperial Walkers

The Thang:

We moseyed out of the parking lot, past the retirement home and across the road, partnering up along the way. At the rock wall:
P1 15 Derkins
P2 Jump squats
(2 Rounds)

We continued the mosey to the walking path
P1 Bear Crawl to next light
P2 High Knees to next light, then Annies till partner catches up, switch
Repeat until bridge is reached
Broad jump across bridge

Finally, we moseyed to Monkey Humper Hill, site of YHC’s inaugural Alpha beatdown 4 years ago. I announced that we would NOT do 11s on the hill so we did something WAY different:

10 Burpees at bottom
10 alpha Bonnie Blairs at top
5 merkins in middle both directions
Next round, 9 and 9, and so on until 1 and 1

We followed the power lines for a shorter mosey back as time ran short. Then a bit of Mary to close out the last 2 minutes.


Prayers for kids going back to school and upcoming Darth Visor convergence

Naked-Man Moleskin:

YHC has come a long way over the years since that first trip to the hill when I fought off a brief wave of nausea and avoided the not-uncommon merlot spill of the first Hooch beatdown. This group is amazing and has grown so much! Here’s to many more FNGs who will question their resolve with us in the future, but ultimately will get stronger physically and relationally as we grow together.
