Later than usual, but here it is……

After a week of vacation on the Redneck Riviera aka Dirty Myrtle, I found myself with the Folsom Q. Although I got a few runs in, it had been 9 days since my last bootcamp. My body is pretty fresh so I came to bring the heat!

As expected, a lot of the “old” faces I usually see weren’t there. Some are on vacation, some having babies, and some just plain ol’ fartsackin’! Folsom has seen a huge influx of FNGs over the past few months and they are sticking around. It is great to see! Shout out to Sparky, Wichita, and the Parker family for adding some great new men to the group…men who have already brought their own FNGs!

As I scanned the crowd, I saw a lot of newer guys. You can see they are ALL getting faster and stronger but it takes time. You have to build your cardio and stamina. I knew I had the right workout planned. Plenty of running and plenty of cardio, perfect for these noobs!

SSH – 25 IC
Toy Soldiers – 10 IC


First off, shout out to Roundup on the addition of his 3rd baby girl Maren Austin Parker, born 6/22 at a healthy 10 lbs 1 oz.

In honor of young Miss Parker, we are going to do something I call MAP.

Mosey – at each light pole, we do
Maren 10 Merkins
Austin 10 American Hammers IC
Parker 10 Peter Parkers IC

There werent enough light poles for my liking on the way to the park wntrance so we circled around and found a few extras…and grabbed one final set at the flag.

I hear some deep breaths from the peanit gallery.

We pledge and mosey to parking lot by the cotton gin.

Start Triple Nickel – Burpees and Bobby Hurleys – Newton breaks out running across the parking lot quickly and was saying something to the effect of ‘You guys need to catch up! Modify as needed!’

Now here is the truth, I like Newton. Despite being a newer PAX, he will bring some chatter and I dig that! Kinda reminds me of, well, me when I started. However, I’ve been hanging around some HIMs who can talk it…guys like Freight, Sister Act, and others. I also know the Qs job is to maintain control and do his best to make ’em work. When the chatter is going, I have to push everyone that much harder! I also know Newton is new and running is tough for newer guys so…..OMAHA! Let’s mosey!!!!!! LOL!!!! (For real though Newton, keep the chatter up! That is a BIG part of F3!).

We mosey around pond. Plank amd pilates as we wait for the six.

Now, Triple Nickel across the parking lot, 5 burpees, 5 Bobby Hurleys. Newton was talking again but I let it slide. He earned it. I appreciate the dedication!

Mosey back to the main parking lot, we took the scenic route.

Core time!

3 sets
LBCs 20 IC
Flutter Kicks 20 IC
Freddie Mercuries 20 ic
Superman/Iron Man – 10

Many PAX (self included) were on Struggle Street by this point. Lets get in one more blast of cardio.

Jacked up.


Prayer requests – Roundup and family, our country. YHC took us out in prayer.

I love seeing the new guys out there pushing the rock with us. You guys bring new life and attitude to F3. Some of these guys will be leading the pack soon and I will be struggling to catch up! Keep doing what you are doing and you will get better each week…each day. And Newton – keep talkin’!!! It is also great to see Hank back in the gloom regularly! I need some vets put there to wrangle in these young bucks! Thanks for the opportunity to lead today!
