Some things in an F3 work out are predictable.  Some of the predictability is nice when you know someone will be running or is not a runner.  When BA Qs, you know exposure to the elements is limited, especially when its cold or raining.  However, when a Monday night seagull flies over and drops something on you due to an illness and asks you to swap….you know you’re going to be out in the cold and you onion up and do it.

Everyone pulls up and STAYS in their cars until 5:25 not wanting to risk unnecessary frost bite. We start with the disclaimer, however, it is unsaid that if you are out here, you are clearly an idiot and not to be trusted.

Warm Up
SSH x25 IC (Q moves around circle so PAX gets some one on one), Merkins x10 IC, Don Quixote’s x10 IC


The Thang
Thanks to Jobu for unlocking the gate, we all mosey down to the steps into the dark gloom and frozen tundra of the field and line up on the goal line.  The Pax advance to each 10 yard line to do an exercise of their choice (must do burpees, squats, mountain climbers, merkins)with the number on the yard line.  The rest can be a Pax choice.  i.e 10 burpees at the 10 yard line, 20 merkins at the 20 yard line and so on.
At the other goal line when complete, we circle up for some abs.  French fries x10 IC, LBCs x 10 IC, Flutter kicks x10 IC and windshield wipers x10 IC.
Run a lap – – Rinse and repeat going the other way.  That’s a total of 500 reps of exercises on the goal line and 80 ab exercises.  Some of the cadence counts were difficult due to lack of breath by the Q, but the Pax perseveres.

Due to the cold temperature, I keep having to reach in my pants to find my Weinke, but it is always there folded up in my pocket for reference.

After running another lap, the Pax is informed that thanks to a post from Dr. Feelgood congratulating the Q on his re-election and notes the next exercise is celebratory burpees = to % of vote.  Q had 90% of the votes, so everyone starts doing burpees until one of us gets 90.  Dolph was the first one to get there (Tclaps) after 15 minutes of straight up burpees, however, half way through the Pax grows rowdy and start some serious mumble chatter (or GRUMBLE CHATTER – I may see if I can get this added to the Lexicon) about their current situation and mutiny was suggested.  Several others were in the 80s and 70s.  Tclaps to everyone for sticking with it because no Omaha was being called. With time running out, we mosey back to the flag for the Name-O-Rama.

F3 Gastonia is collecting canned food for CAM (Crisis Assistance Ministry) by 1/30/16.  Roscoe has additional information and wants to get some Pax together to deliver and strike up a relationship.   Please bring the items to your site Qs.


Gentlemen – it was a pleasure to lead and I am grateful you showed up.
