Where are those darn FNG’s?

Where are those darn FNG’s?

Workout Date:





Minnie Mouse (Greensboro), Cubbie, Viagra (Respect), OneCall (QIC)

The Thang:

32.  Chilly, but not bad

YHC was ready to visit my Brothers on the north end and bring some fun/pain.  I arrived at 0500 to a quiet street.  Soon after, Viagra pulls in so I get ready to go chat with him when I see 4 guys on the corner staring at a phone, looking around, confused.  I thought I saw an F3 shirt, so I kinda watched to see what was up and to be sure no issue arose that would require extraction of something from the ol’ vehicle.

They see me, and one yells, “are you here for a workout?”
Me: “Yep. F3!?”
They come rolling in, and I get to meet Minnie Mouse from Greensboro, and 3 FNG’s he EH’d while apparently out all night partaking in some festivities of sorts.  The aroma of hops was strong.  1 FNG had jeans and no shoes on. 1 looked miserable.  1 wouldn’t stop running his mouth.  Minnie Mouse was strongly encouraging them – they will love this, it’s an amazing thing, etc.  I give him all the props in the world.  1 for showing up in less than ideal condition for a beatdown.  2 for trying like heck to get these guys into it.

Cubbie came rolling in while all this was going on, and it looked like we might have 7.  I planned to modify to not kill the FNG’s, but that quickly ended as they irritated me.  More to follow.

1 minute warning was given
Disclaimer was given in spades for the FNG’s in particular

SSH x 30 IC – testing the waters of the FNG’s.  None made it very far.
IW x 25 IC
Tempo Squats x 20 IC – this is when 1 of the FNG’s really got annoying.  But, we lead by example and with love, so YHC chose to ignore him, but it was quickly demoralizing the group, and it was clear this could become a problem
So YHC called 22 Merkins in single count cadence explaining that this was to HONOR our VETERANS and that this would be done to RESPECT them and to hold our tongues.  Well, instructions ignored, again by 1 FNG, who clearly had major issues with his ability to control his mouth and behavior.  I am sure he will blame the alcohol, but that is no excuse.  Especially no excuse to dishonor our veterans.
At this point, I wanted them to puke and be gone.  So, CDD called x 25 IC – figured that’d be a great way to bring on merlot.  Of course, they would have had to do them to get there.  Which they did not.
Let me also add here that Minnie Mouse, Viagra and Cubbie were troopers.  Doing everything, holding their tongues while clearly irritated at these guys.  #T-Claps men.
10 Burpees OYO.

Then we moseyed and for some reason, the loudmouth couldn’t keep up.  Nor could the others.  They didn’t really try.  Tough call I reckon – pick up the 6’s?  I decided not to.  After all, they really didn’t show up voluntarily of their own free will.  YHC certainly welcomes input from anyone else reading this that has had this experience.

Went to the park and the picnic tables.
1 step up right leg
1 step up left leg
1 jump up
1 dip
1 derkin
Rinse and repeat, 2, 3, 4….up to 10 if you can…keeping time.

Everyone did great.  Then to get the heart rates down and fellowship, we had some plankorama getting to know Minnie Mouse and catching up with Cubbie and Viagra.

We took a lap around the lake to the pull up bars

Mosey back to Virtual SF
Where we saw the jeans wearing no shoe wearing potential FNG.  The other 2 were gone.  This guy had sobered some and was very complimentary of what we do and he stuck around to tell us that.  Thank you.


Count-O-Rama – 4
Prayer requests for Turn and Cough and family – loss of his Brother-in-law after a long battle with cancer
Prayer requests for our country and all the hatred and violence
Prayer requests unspoken

– Great to have Cubbie and Viagra pushing themselves on a regular basis and I was glad to get back up to Timeshare to see them!  Keep after it men!
– T-Claps to Minnie Mouse for really DRP and posting after an all-nighter!!
– Honestly, but for the effect of Jesus and my F3 Brothers on my life over the last 3+ years, there would have been some severe violence this morning.  So while I may not all say it enough, thank you to every Brother I have encountered that has had an incredible effect on my life and has made me a better man.  I struggle often, but I know my Brothers have my back.

– 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!!
– Since #Timeshare is a T/Th/Sat bootcamp option. Come check out #WaveRucker ruck workout on Wednesdays at Market Commons.  We had 17 yesterday!
– Leadership/Bible study started this week with Handy Manny and Crankbait on Q.  Come check it out!

Until the next time
