Early Bird, Mudslide, Buffett, OneCall (QIC)

The Thang:

58 and WET

I awoke to pouring rain, and it being a Monday with this weather, was wondering who would show.  I pulled into the lot to see a surprise Jeep of our very own OG Early Bird!!!  Coming back to #Kotters in the rain!  We sat in our cars as the rain beat down, texting each other like high schoolers on a date instead of getting out and talking.  #RainProblems

At 0528 it was just us 2, and I was thinking of alternatives to what I had planned.  Then Mudslide (from Vegas) and Buffett (from the flu) came rolling in and we were 4.  Everyone else #fartsacked.  Ridiculous.

1 minute warning was given

We moseyed to the awnings so as to stay kinda dry.  Everyone was sweating and stripping layers early on, but we didn’t get hit with rain for very long #WhyIsSweatAnyBetter?

IW x 25 IC

I stole the idea in set #1 from another BB I had read, and decided to use it for the whole beatdown.  Kinda Tabata; kinda HIIT, but different

Instructions given: Complete each round as fast as possible inside of 30 seconds.  If you complete a round in 20 seconds, you have 10 seconds rest before proceeding to the next round.  If you take all 30 seconds, you ain’t getting much rest.  Etc.  There will be 15 Rounds

– These wet nasty days are one of many things that make F3 great.  To know that there will be at least 1 other #DancingIdiot outside at 0530 in the pouring rain to share some misery and fun makes waking up and posting worth it all!!
– Thanks for coming out men!!

– Be sure to check out our regional website. All local information is on that! The events page is getting filled up!!! Try to attend CSAUPS, 2ndF events, convergences, etc!!! So much more than a workout group!!
– Dragon Boat coming.  We have 1 full boat of 20 men.  Would love to have a 2nd.  Even if that one is mixed with 2.0’s and/or M’s.  Be in a different division but still AWESOME!  Get more information here!
