Neverland.  It has been quite a while since I Q’d.  Today was as good a day as any.

I was awake early so I got in some EC running before.  It was humid.

Good crowd showed for a Monday.

Let’s get after it.

Pledge followed by a quick IC warm up with 13 Imperial Walkers followed by 10 SSH’s.

The Thang

Mosey to the center of the baseball fields at Martha Rivers Park for some work that I endured when in the Carpex Region last month:

Split into 3 groups.  3 of the paths leading away from the center are designated 1, 2 & 3.

Run down the path, do 50 reps of an exercise, run back for 5 burpees and then plank for the PAX to complete.  After 1st Round, group 1 moves to path 2, 2 to 3 and 3 to 1, etc.

Path 1 – 50 Merkins; Path 2 – 50 Flutter Kicks; Path 3 – 50 Squats

Round 2:  Path 1 – 50 CDD’s; Path 2 – 50 LBC’s; Path 3 – 50 Jump Squats

Time for some additonal reps:

OYO exercises as follows:

20 Merkins; 25 Flutter Kicks; 25 Squats; 20 CDD’s; 25 LBC’s; 25 Jump Squats

Run lap around one of the baseball fields and return

20 Merkins; 25 Flutter Kicks; 25 Squats; 20 CDD’s; 25 LBC’s; 25 Jump Squats

Run the long way back to Snoballs for some final IC Mary work:

Time’s up

The Moleskin

It was great hearing about the BRR Ruck this morning and over the last few days.  I had some real FOMO as it was an event I really wanted to do.  However, thanks to F3 and what I have learned about striving to be a HIM, I was with my family over the weekend in Raleigh with all 5 of us together, which doesn’t happen much right now as I have two in College and one still at home.  That was exactly where I needed to be and it was a terrific weekend.  The concentrica has helped me stay on my path over the past few years when it comes to keeping in mind focused on what is most important.  Balancing all this time between family, community, F3, work, etc is what HIMs have to strive to do and come to understand what being Third is really about.


Until the next one.  See you in the gloom.
