That was the question weighing on my mind. The back story : met a young guy at the gym doing various exercises similar to what we do at F3. He was working very hard and was intense. Tried to head lock him to get him out. Long story short, he wanted to pass his PE class next semester at State. I was curious, asked a few questions and pulled the course curriculum from State’s online registar. Could this be a good winkie?
Knowing F3 Gastonia has a number of State fans (not sure how many actually graduated) or how many padded their gpa’s with PE, I figured we could have some fun with it. So we get started and to his credit, T bone was the only one to claim having graduated there. I am pretty sure in his graduate work, he didn’t take PE. So would be a new experience. At this point, I am very interested to see if the pax could earn high honors.

Mosey around building, stop at road. Squat jump up the hill to first light, run back, rinse and repeat x3. Island was a beast, practically floating in the air.
Gastone honored us with a quick count of flutter kicks x40 I think
Mosey through the neighborhood to cut thru to the park. Plank while waiting on the six. Yhc heard a train and called 5 burpees. Monk whispers you didn’t hear a train. Must of been a ghost train.
Mosey to back field for the price of admission. The main event, the turtle run. Like an Indian run except everyone bear crawls with last in line moving to the front. Was a crowd pleaser.
Running short on time, mosey to picnic shelter.
20 dips oyo x2
20 step ups oyo x 2
Mosey back towards Snoballs. Stop and plank at top of park waiting on six
Jail break back to Snoballs
- Moleskin: the Pax put in some good work. It was a honor to lead. Everyone earned their B. Next time we will target the A thresholds. Pretty amazing to think about a bunch of older men accomplishing what many young kids can’t achieve. Mind over body. Keep pushing the rock. Till next time – Turtle Man
