PAX (11): FannyPack, Focker, Groundhog, Krueger, Lefty, Lil Hurt, lumbergh, Morphine, Pinkey, Special K, Trebek
At T – 00:02, YHC read the back of the F3 Workout Deck- the 5 core principles. Some mumblechatter followed, then a prompt start with a clearly articulated disclaimer.
Warm up began with two laps of the parking lot, with high knees, butt kickers and karaoke right & left. The mosey continued to the electrical shed where we found the master light box locked up tight. So we circled up in front of the bathrooms & kicked off the playlist with the Cranberries’ Dreams. As we completed SSH, windmills, arm circles, and hillbillies, we chatted about the playlist and the teenage restlessness it invoked.
The Workout Deck of Death
The music & running continued out to the FOD, where we found some light by the fence. Three-card, cold-hand poker was the game. I dealt 3 cards to each PAX & we compared hands, lining up by winning-est hand.
Each card contains an exercise, and the rep counts are as recommended in the deck: Add 10 to any number cards (3 => 13), Faces are 25, and Aces are 100.
We went down the line, with each PAX calling their three exercises & setting the order. We got through 30 cards by 6:10- a milestone to beat next time.
Playlist of upbeat but emotional music is below:
Dreams- The Cranberries
On Melancholy Hill- Gorillaz
Time to Pretend- MGMT
Elevator Love Letter- Stars
Under Pressure- Queen & David Bowie
Tongue Tied- Grouplove
Save Your Tears- The Weeknd
Electric Love- BORNS
Feel Good Inc.- Gorillaz
Read My Mind- The Killers
Head back to the Flag (where none other than Lefty was waiting for us) for a few rounds of Mary- Freddy Mercury’s, Box Cutters, J-Lo’s, Sweat Angels.
Prayers for Lil Hurt’s dad, in recovery from back surgery for another couple of weeks; Lumberg & M as they navigate professional decisions; Lefty’s ongoing recovery because cracked ribs suck.
Discussion on IronPax: Tuesdays, Rubicon will remain open with Pinkey and Lumberg as the core team, and any/all who want to take on IronPax head to the Academy.
The Workout Deck was a nice change up. Always a pleasure to lead. Looking forward to doing this again & beating 30!
