Coconut Horse 1.15.23

2 Ran

8 Rucked

We exchanged Hunchback for Defib at QSource where we discussed Extreme Ownership Chapter 2: No Bad Teams, Only Bad Leaders?

Do you agree or disagree?

Join us this Sunday for Chapter 3 titled Believe. Not only do you get an extra point for the challenge, you get some good 2nd F time with your brothers.

Downtown Beatdown

Whoopee posted that EC was at 0500 so we got a little running and merkins and lbc’s around the town square and the parking deck roof.  A little EC never hurt anyone!

We had a nice crew roll in for the start time with a couple tardies.  We began with the disclaimer and pledge before a brief warmup consisting of 10 merkins, Imperial walkers, SSH, and squats before moseying to the wall.  We completed 50 squats oyo and then wall sits with air presses and marching. We moseyed to the top of the deck.

The PAX counted off in one’s and two’s and locked arms for some formation lunge walk.  Pretty bad q fail but line 1 had it together.

The THANG:

At the top of the deck, do the following:

25 burpees, lunge walk to the other side of the deck, mosey back

50 merkins, lunge walk to the other side of the deck, mosey back

75 shoulder taps lunge walk to the other side of the deck, mosey back

100 CDD’s lunge walk to the other side of the deck, mosey back

75 shoulder taps ,lunge walk to the other side of the deck, mosey back

50 merkins, lunge walk to the other side of the deck, mosey back

25 burpees, lunge walk to the other side of the deck, mosey back

For those that finished first, take the stairs to the bottom of the deck and run up the ramps to the top again.  Repeato for the six.

This took most of our time so rounded up the PAX and moseyed back to start where the clock rang 0615 and we ended the workout.

Some quick reflection on  F3 and what it means…the brotherhood, the mental and physical acceleration, the energy to go and serve, the hardest part of your day is already over…

What a blessing!

Announcements:  Second F lunch next Wednesday at noon at Hillbillies in Lowell

Bricks and Grudges

Great weather at Midoriyama for an afternoon workout in January. Work has kept me from being able to commit to Q recently, so I told Slaw earlier in the week that if I made it out today I would take his spot. Most of you know that it ALWAYS rains when Slaw has the Q, so by YHC taking over the PAX stayed dry. You’re welcome!

NMM/COT

We discussed the need to let go of any grudges we may be carrying and how the longer we hold on to them the more they have a hold on us. The basis and scripture we used for the discussion came from a message my 2.1 gave to her youth last Sunday, so YHC made sure to give credit so as not to plagiarize her work. Read Romans 12:17-20 when you get a chance.

 

Lunch next Wednesday at Hillbilly’s

Pause for The Word

Mark 5:25 speaks of a woman with an issue of blood who had spent all she had seeking help from every doctor she could find, with no relief. She hears that Jesus is coming to town and believes that if she can get close enough to “touch the hem of His garment” she will be made whole. We all have issues and yes, you should seek advice of your F3 Brothers, seek help from professionals … but before you do any of that, seek Jesus, and be made whole!

Gentlemen, it was for sure “dark out there” but let me remind you that as this world grows darker and darker … we need to grow brighter and brighter! This little light of mine … I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine! Shine your light into your areas of influence … bring the light to your home, your family, your coworkers, your peers, your neighbors … bring the light! As always … it is a pleasure to lead leaders, thanks for the opportunity!

Doodles Out!

 

 

1/19/23 Dad’s Birthday at The Goat

Thirteen HIM joined YHC in the foggy gloom to celebrate the life and 80th birthday of my Father.  Through the workout attempts were made to reference some of the lessons that Dad shared throughout our lives together.  Many fit well in F3.  Dad always lent a hand to others.  He selflessly put others before himself.  He always picked up the six.  He liked his routine as he aged but He always lived third.  Growing up YHC didn’t recognize all of these qualities but over time and with the help of F3 it became very obvious.  He wasn’t just Dad, he was My Superman.  Last August his visitation and memorial service were the largest I’ve ever seen for someone with less than celebrity status.  The comments and conversations that were shared were amazing to hear and quite humbling at the same time.  Maybe it’s time to be more like Dad.

The party went something like this…

Warm up – Side Straddle Hops x 15.  Quick stop / No warning / Q fail.  My mind was wandering.  Imperial Walkers x 15.  Mountain Climbers x 15.  Superman-Banana x 8

Mosey to the upper lot with some high knees and butt kickers along the way.

Lot #1 Line up on one end for 20 Merkins then run to the opposite end and back for 20 LBCs. Run across and back for 20 Jump Squats, Run, 20 CDDs, Run, 20 Crunchy Frogs, Run, 20 Monkey Humpers and a final run.  *Dad got a kick out of our Lexicon.  He would chuckle and shake his head at names like Crunchy Frog and Monkey Humpers.

Down the stairs for an Indian Run to stop two.   Did I mention he liked his routine?

Lot #2 Line up on one end of the parking lot for 20 Merkins then run to the opposite end and back for 20 LBCs. Run across and back for 20 Jump Squats, Run, 20 CDDs, Run, 20 Crunchy Frogs, Run, 20 Monkey Humpers and a final run.

Next we took a fellowship mosey towards the island only to find the gate locked for once at the bridge.  Thats okay Dad was a quick thinker.  Lets move the party to the church/ police station parking lot.

Lot #3 Line up on one end for 20 Merkins then run to the opposite end and back for 20 LBCs. Run, 20 Jump Squats, Run, 20 CDDs, Run, 20 Crunchy Frogs, Run, 20 Monkey Humpers and a final run.

Another mosey back to quite possibly the only brick parking lot AO in Gaston county for… you guessed it, one more round.  YHC let Goose (Houston, TX brother) pick the direction we ran the L shaped lot.   Lot #4 Line up on one end for 20 Merkins then run to the opposite end and back for 20 LBCs. Run, 20 Jump Squats, Run, 20 CDDs, Run, 20 Crunchy Frogs, Run, 20 Monkey Humpers and a final run.

With time winding down we threw in 5 Jack Webbs for good measure and recover was called.  YHC took a few minutes to talk about Dad, his life and the importance of being there for our families and each other.  He was a healthy guy out playing golf a week before going in for a routine surgery.  A month later he was gone.

With that Slaw threw three minutes of core work at the pax while I grabbed my phone.

Welcome Goose in town from Houston, Texas.

Happy Birthday Stinky Bird!

Pledge, Announcements, Name A Rama and Prayer shut this party down.
