What it was, was kickball

1/14/23

We started at the flag and moseyed to the bunker for warmups. After warmups, some HIM’s broke off to ruck and 12 chose to accept the challenge.

Mosey from the bunker, around downtown to the school (1 mile) then break off into two teams each of 6 for kickball.

Rules:

Foul: your team does 5 burpees

Out: fielding team chooses the exercise for the kicking team

Run: kicking team chooses exercise for fielding team x2 is 2 runs are scored x3 etc.

after each team switches, everyone does 10 merkins

Home run: kicking team chooses exercise for fielding team to do.

Final score: 2-1

World’s Fastest Dora at Mount Hollywood

Freon needs Q’s at Mt. Hollywood so YHC decided to drive the extra five minutes and post in my old stomping grounds.  YHC had no Weinke planned by design because I was anticipating modifying ideas depending on who showed up.  To my surprise, we had  8 PAX as we started the warmup and then three late arrivals showed up to give us eleven.

Breaker Breaker brought along some coupons to modify his workout due to a recent injury.  I stop this backblast to share an important point!

IF YOU ARE HURT, YOU CAN DO SOMETHING.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO STAY HOME.  YOU CAN SHOW UP IN THE GLOOM, BE WELCOMED BY YOUR BROTHERS, AND ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING.  DO WHAT YOU CAN DO AND DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN’T.  TOO MANY MEN GET SOME SOME SORT OF INJURY AND INSTANTLY REVERT TO SAD CLOWNS IN THE FARTSACK INSTEAD OF PUSHING THROUGH.  WE ALL ARE DEALING WITH SOMETHING.

Thank you Breaker Breaker for that example.  Now back to our regularly scheduled backblast.

The PAX took a lap and ended up at the front of the school for a modified Route 66.

YHC selected burpees, CPAP selected squats, Radar selected merkins, Bubba Sparxx selected Big boi’s, and Pillager selected lunges.  The first five rounds were all together and it went like this.

One burpee, one squat, one merkin, one big boi, one lunge each leg, take a lap.  (the laps were oyo in terms of modifying.  you could run around the entire lot of just some of it).

Two burpees, two squats, two merkins, two big boi’s, two lunges each leg, take a lap.

Three burpees………….lap

four burpees……….lap

Go get Breaker and steal his coupons so he would be with us during our exercises.  Someone had put Breaker in a corner, and nobody puts Breaker in a corner.

five burpees……lap

6,7,8,9,10,11  ENDEX

Some rock pushing was going on as several PAX were onto 12 burpees, trying to complete ROUTE 79.

Next, we partnered up for the world’s fastest DORA.

25 merkins, 50 squats, 75 LBC’s  the other partner runs across the front of the school to a sign and back.  About 40 yards total.

Then plank it up for a moment of gratitude where PAX shared what they were thankful for.  Gratitude helps people lower their stress, sleep better, and focus on what they have versus what they don’t have.
The Pledge of Allegiance and then it was time.

MOLESKIN:

There were several PAX YHC had seen in backblasts but not met in person yet so it was great to see new faces and meet new guys.  Everyone pushed the rock today.  Bubba Sparxx made the distinction that F3 isn’t “men only” but “open to all men”.   We are all going through life and we need one another to help provide support.  YHC has been thinking of a new position or team of PAX that would serve as a “congregational care” committee.  PAX who are dealing with serious things and need support could contact this team and have their needs met with extra attention.  Since such a committee doesn’t exist yet, you can contact YHC for anything heavy.  Life happens to all of us.  Let’s be intentional about being there for one another.  AYE!

Come and go

12 was the number at Old School on Saturday. Lots of EC before hand.

Warmup:

Sealjacks, squats, merkins

The Thang:

I explained we would be moseying around town and stopping to do exercises at various points. Every time we passed a telephone/power pole with lines( you have to be as exact as possible with this smart ass group) we would do 2 burpee Tyson’s . That’s a burpee with a Mike Tyson while you’re down. 2 merkins per rep. I asked Slaw to keep us honest and call out any poles we passed. I don’t know if you know this about Slaw but he was a poleman in the navy. At every road intersection we would do 5 WWI’s, 10 squat jumps, and 15 merkins.
We made our way across downtown to the town parking lot for some DORA. 100 diamond merkins, 200 cork screws, 300 toy soldiers. Instead of running we did broad jumps across the parking lot. These quickly turned into bunny hops for many of us.
We continued our way across town looping back toward the flag. Slaw did an excellent job of spotting poles to the dismay of the Pax. Some were quite hidden but no pole gets by Slaw!
We finished up with a few ab exercises.
COT:

Announcements-2nd F lunch at Hillbilly’s 25th, Convergence 2/11 at Folsom, Extinction run 3/4.

Moleskin:

Shout out to Crop duster for hanging tough on his second post! Stick with it. It’ll get better. Also I’d like to apologize for all the disgusting talk. Some  stories probably shouldn’t be repeated.
