So as the weather takes a turn for the colder temps and the incessant rain continues west of the Catawba 5 mostly respect warriors defeated the urge to say in the warm and dry environs they were sequestered in to push the boundaries and get better. Fortunately they had veteran leadership that knows that the power is in the pax, not the one. It went like this:
Gather in the cold drizzle in the school parking lot and make a bee line to the school house and some sembleance of shelter.
SSH X 20
IW X 30
Merkins X 10
mosey over to the area to the right and the benches for a ladder as follows:
5X – Burpees
10X – Jump Squats
15X – dips
20X – WWI situps
25X – Hand release merkins
30X – Jump Squats
Game here is after you do the first 5 you run the parking lot and come back to the start. Then with the group you go the 5X and the 10X, run again. And on and on until you reach the 30X. Then we go back down the ladder. so we essentially did plenty of burpees and hand release merkins (75 of those to be exact). And it also git us out in the rain a little with the run. Nobody melted.
Mosey back to the all for some people’s chair and balls to the wall to finish up.
Hip slappers 20X
Air presses X 20
Air punches 20X
Mosey back to the flag for pledge and COT.
Great work by the pax, everybody was rolling today. It really means something to the respect guys who are the REAL badasses in F3. It just means more? Could be! What is the more? The pax! And that is what made this worth doing today – being there for each other. That’s how you get big things done.
Let’s keep making it happen!
