YHC wasn’t sure how many would show given the state of the weather and the world. But was encouraged when Doodles mentioned on Slack bringing two Kotters (due to school). That meant at least 4…
YHC arrived Dirt doing EC. Dry Rub and Headcase were cocooned in their vehicles.
0530 hits to find 6 assembled with YHC,
We knocked out The Pledge before beginning warmup.
It would take far too long to describe what we did for the first part of warmup. It was something YHC found on the internet, described as a way to stretch/warm all muscle groups. Whether it did or not, you will have to ask the attendees. After that we did MNC IC x 10.
After a circuitous route around the parking lot, we ended up at the side of the school.
49’s (just like 11’s, but you total 49 and count by 7’s) with Mountain Climbers on one end and Crab Hip Thrusters aka Peter Pushers on the other.
A slow meander/10 count to the front of the school.
Now its time to get some PT work in:
- 25 SSH, Run the Circle
- 25 LBC Run the Circle
- 25 Merkins, Run the Circle
- 25 Squats, Run the Circle
- 25 Dips, Run the Circle.
But this is 49er day, so…
- 24 SSH, Run the Circle
- 24 LBC Run the Circle
- 24 Merkins, Run the Circle
- 24 Squats, Run the Circle
- 24 Dips, Run the Circle.
With a few minutes to spare, YHC throws out a trivia question…
Given today is St. Patrick’s Day and you are supposed to wear Green, what color was St. Patrick’s Day originally associated with? Dirt and Doodles thew out Red and Dry Rub said Blue. The group ultimately decided on Red. 9 Burpees for getting it wrong (4 if they had gotten it right). The answer is Blue. (BTW, there is no explanation as to why it was originally Blue.)
And that is Time!
We meandered back to the Flag.
- Convergence at Martha Rivers this Saturday is postponed. Normal Saturday AOs are open at normal times.
- Community Foundation Run is cancelled.
- Everyone dealing with COVID-19 virus.
- All those that are struggling as a result of the virus, whether that be mentally, emotionally, physically or fiscally.
Dirt took us out in prayer
Today is my 18262 day in this world or 1 day short of 50 years. Thus the theme of today’s workout – my last day as a 49er, You can join me tomorrow at The Labyrinth (aka Snoballs aka The Black Knight aka Martha’s House) for a “Respect”able Q. EC begins at 0500.
Thanks to all the men of F3. You continue to push, pull and inspire.
In these dark times, look to the Lord. This trial we are going through is meant to draw us close to Him and teach us to rely on Him. From The Sword this week:
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting ROCK.
Watts Up powering down.
