Honor to lead a great group of guys.   Thanks to all for the push. 

Just standing around

The evening started off looking like we needed to have a shed workout with all the rain.   Then about 10 min before time we had a clearing , so I decided to use my second weinkie.   5:30 and I called time.   15 total showed for the wet evening.   Tooltime and freight decided to run so 13 of us got to stand around in the parking lot.  (This is what Freight was saying anyway).   We started the warmup with

Side straddle hops-20 IC

Don Qs-10

Toy shoulders- not sure.  I didn’t count correct

.  Things started off a little slow.  while still standing in the parking lot.  I called 50 seal jacks and 10 merkins timed for 1 min with 25 sec of rest x5 times.   That got the heart beating a little and now we have a good warmup.   Next was10 burpees and 10 merkins in 1 min with 25 sec of rest x 5.   That was a little tough.

Now time for the next stage.  I called for us to do 20 hip Slappers (single count)on the poop house wall then run to the playground for 10 pull ups, then run backfor a rinse and repeat 3 times.   Once this was done we took a short mosey to the first soccer field on the right and each collected us a block.


Partner up.   While one does exercise called the other runs with block almost the length of field and back.( kept it on the cement ,due to so much water on the field)  Then switch.

100 overhead presses

150 arm curls

200 squats

Q had to call the squats early(I think we was close to finish) for we was almost out of time.   Put the blocks back in the woods and mosey back to the flag.   Roadie took the lead with slaw pushing him all the way to flag.   Good run Roadie!!   We all gathered at the flag for the pledge.

I shared a personal life experience with the group that has been heavy on my heart for many years ( loosing my farther to cancer when I was 6 years old).  My word was to be right with the lord, know where your going after this life, and enjoy your time and family while your here on this earth.  Time is short and you never know when it’s your time.

I always say thanks for this great group of guys. I truly enjoy the fellowship and friendships F3 has given to me.    Thanks for letting me lead you.

Burpee mosey

Ssh x 25
Don Qs x 10
That was enough for the warm up. Time for some mosey to the first light pole in the parking lot. 5 burpees , mosey to the next pole 5 burpees. You get the picture what we are doing now. Started to hear some mumble chatter from the pax!! We finished those poles (5x 5) and some mosey to the first soccer field on the right.

Time for some Dora. Billy Madison showed up with his 2.0s and did the exercises iron man. The pax jumped in and helped him finish up his flutter kicks at the end. Way to push Billy!!

300 flutter kicks.

Time for a mosey around the large soccer field and back to the next parking lot for some more light poles. While waiting on the six Blart called out for 10 Mike Tyson’s.

Now , back to the poles and burpees. I hear some more mumble chatter again. Once we finished up I was feeling the pain at this point. Had to take a small breather and do some wall sets with ring of fire and hip slappers.

Mosey back to the flag (which totaled 2 miles)and hit the bleachers for 25 step ups each leg, 25 dips, 25 Derkins, 25 American hammers, 25 crunchy frogs, 10 more burpees which made for a total of 65, 25 each side Jane Fonda v something roll ups that Tool Time called out. Back to the flag to circle up with 22 merkins for the vets and the pledge. We named the new FNG. Welcome Birthright.

Prayers for all the guys on the injured list.
Everyone pushed hard. Thanks for the opportunity to lead you guys again. As always it’s a honor.

Mystery suv

Come into the park a few min early to see Slaw and Sister Act doing some EC running. Roadie setting in his truck absorbing the last few min of heat. A black SUV that I didn’t recognize . (Thought Sister Act got a new ride.). Once the EC guys showed back up they let me know it didn’t belong to any of us f3 guys. Now I’m thinking FNG. Maybe? So volt and Gumby show up and it’s time to start. No one comes out of the SUV?

At this point we had 3 min to go so I ask the pax for a exercise. Roadie called out ring of fire with LBCs. We each did 20 single count while the group held theirs till everyone was complete .

It was again a honor to lead this great group of guys . I just want to say thanks for keeping me accountable.
