I showed up to early since this was my first weekday post at Folsom. I left home a little early because YHC did not know how long it would take to get there from Belmont. I showed up around 5:10 a.m. with a grayish looking SUV already in the parking lot. YHC was on alert since it was not a white pick up truck. Come to find out it was Huckleberry. Myth #1 busted “All the guys that post at Folsom have a white pickup truck with large tires”. Roadie shows up and jumps out of his truck with American Flag shorts for flag day. I knew there would be at least one. The PAX began to show up as Roadie, Huck, and I visited. They were letting me know that it is hard to know just how many would show up, but they were sure Medicine Women would not show since he was not there already. The clock struck 5:30 a.m., so it was time to serve up a beat down.
There were no FNGs, Huck thought he may have one, but not today. I gave the disclaimer then got started.
20 SSH IC
10 Merkins IC As we are recovering Sparky is coming in hot. Myth #2 confirmed Sparky’s workout starts at 5:35 a.m. Moroccan Night Clubs until he gets out of the truck. The PAX also let me know that he lives the closes to Folsom then the other PAX. SMH
5 Burpees OYO for the train. I had these programmed in the workout, so we stuck to just 5. (Roadie does not like burpees) Plus I knew we had not seen the last of the burpees in this workout.
15 Squats IC
Mosey to the lower parking lot near the pond for BLIMPS
Lunges 25 each leg At this point we see massive head lights coming down the road. YHC thought is was Peterbuilt truck, but I was wrong is was Medicine Women coming in on fire.
Imperial Walkers 25 each side
Plank Jacks 25
In between each set we ran down to the light and back. Once completed 50 LBC for the 6.
Mosey back up the hill, once out of the parking lot we ran backwards up the hill until we were closer to the tennis courts. Mosey on to the tennis court where we did the Turtle run (Bear Crawl Indian run) down to the far side of the tennis court.
Next up Triple Nickle
5 dive bombers run down to second light on tennis court then 5 burpees rinse and repeat 5 times. YHC reminded everyone that it is you versus you since dive bombers can be tough on shoulders. With time running down there was just enough time for 2 rounds of Tabata.
Tabata: 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest of the following exercises
Once complete mosey around all of the tennis courts. Set 2 of Tabata was the same, but Omaha Burpees for American Hammers. During the second set Huck shoulder gave out on him. He insisted the PAX finish the workout, even through he was in severe pain. He even finished the last mosey around the tennis court. Way to push through Huck. You are a bad man.
Mosey back to the start where YHC called time. Medicine Women ran to his truck to get American Flag.
Announcements: F3 Dads at Grizzlies game tomorrow at 7pm, Folsom 2.0 workout on Saturday morning, GoRuck Light event July 22nd
Prayer request: Bed Pan’s M, Huck’s shoulder, and others lifted up the YHC cannot remember.
Thanks for the opportunity to lead men. The mumble chatter was strong just like other backblast I have read. I plan to make it out again. I already feel right I home with my white pickup truck. I can now purchase a Folsom shirt the next time we put in an order. Thanks for the push. Until next time. Keep pushing the rock.
