The pre-blast was simply "I love the gloom", and it drew a great crowd this morning. I guess we all do love it after all.
We mosey'd around the parking lot with some high-knees, butt kickers, and karaoke. Then we picked up a medium coupon on the way to the FOD & Cookie said he wanted some warmup exercises, so we circled up for some normal warm up stuff. Good call Cookie. With a big group everybody felt chatty so YHC had to do so sheperding to keep us moving.
Once we picked up our coupons, the rule was you had keep holding it until the end. If you need a break, that's ok- but before you're able to put it down, loudly announce “I Love the Gloom” & tell us what you like about F3 (or anything else you are grateful for) while the rest of us do 5 burpees. You gotta sell it though. I kicked off a playlist of The Shins & we did the following:
50 x Skull Crushers
100 x Curls
150 x Normal Presses (lay down)
Bataan Death March
Two lines, slow Mosey with coupon
Last PAX drops coupon, does 5 burpees, then picks up coupon & runs to the front
50 x Step-ups
100 x Lunges
150 x Squats (called it a bit early)
Again, two lines, slow mosey with coupon, leave some space
Last PAX runs to the front by weaving through the line left & right alternating
Only two times did we hear "I Love the Gloom", so we'll try this with Cinders or big coupons next time.
Crap I forgot all of the announcements. No prayer requests. Chili/Beer Ruck this Sunday. We're doing Santa Ruck again, more info coming. Christmas is December 25th this year.
At TNT, Cookie walked us through the 4 quadrants from QSource. Thanks for the guidance and reminders of what matters most.
Great to see big numbers at the Rubicon, welcome back Aldi who is it town for a conference this week.
Great work by all- Thanks for playing along, it was fun.
