The Thang:

AO: TimeShare

Conditions: Deluge with Lightning

YHC has been DR for over a week soaking up the sun in OCMD. Although YHC put a shout out to F3 Nation there were no return shouts for a beatdown at the beach so YHC resorted to running the Boardwalk for exercise. Sometimes YHC ran alone other times he ran with family but nothing beats a great WO with my F3GrandStrand brothers! Prior to vacations, YHC signed up to Q TimeShare upon my return, and I was glad I did.  There were a lot of negative forces working against me getting back into it (the long hiatus, the weather, and the comfort of YHC’s own bed) but I was accountable to my fellow PAX, too! The alarm went off early and the ride to TimeShare was lonely but when I arrived there were already 3 trucks in the lot. As I pulled into the AO the first few rain drops hit my windshield. As I geared up the rain came down harder and as I step out onto the blacktop it began to pour. No problem, a little rain never hurt anyone! Then the lightning began streaking & striking; way to close for comfort. I planned on doing a run heavy workout tour of the AO but Mother Nature quickly modified YHC’s plans. There were 5 DR PAX from Fort Mills, Columbia, and Camden and 6 locals who braved the rain. We Circled up for the 1 Minute Warning & Disclaimer then made a jail break to the closest shelter as NMB was deluged by the storm. Rain or Shine the show must go on and the work began!

5:14 – One Minute Warning

5:15 – Proper Disclaimer as the Rain came down

NOTE: YHC was rusty and could not remember TTT, Windmills, or Mountain Climbers . . .YHC wanted to get   Burpee Count up to 100, Oh well. . .

NOTE: Nathan’s front porch gave us little cover from the storm. The rain blew in from every side and we were doing burpees in 2 inches of water. Everyone was completely drenched!

The rain seemed to lighten up just a little so it was time to find a larger venue!

Follow the Leader Mosey to Parking Garage

NOTE: NMB has poor drainage and we were running through flooded streets, ankle deep! The first Parking Garage we came to was a “no go” , “they don’t like us using this one” so the mosey continued. YHC had a second Garage in his sights just down the street which was F3 friendly, but then there was a large lighting strike just ahead of us and YHC quickly turned into the next available parking deck. Once out of the rain and having all PAX accounted for we circled up.


Ring of Fire: PAX #1 leads Flutter Kicks 2 Reps IC (4ct); then PAX #2 leads Flutter Kicks for 4 Reps IC (4ct); then PAX #3 leads of 6 Reps IC; PAX #4 leads for 8 reps IC . . .so on and so on until Pax#11 leads Flutter Kicks for 20 reps IC (4ct)
