The Thang:

Conditions
Started off cool around 47 and warmed up very quick!

Another day at #Warthog and another Saturday Q!!!  Fergie is like a man possessed when filling his Q sheet, so I quickly obliged.  Had a bunch of floating #weinkes in my head based on what the weather would be, who would show, etc.   Great pulling in to see Fergie pre-running – although he didn’t call for it or HC..just casually mentioned it in Slack.  Good trick!  Hoser ready to get after it, following by Penelope who HC’d weeks ago to get bikes and such for Fostering Hope donations.  Shoeless is a beast not missing any workouts and crushing everything.  Our always on the prowl Karma with the new wheels and slim fitting clothes!  Awesome seeing Fizz from Cape Fear back again after joining us for the 9/11 Memorial and bringing the FNG on vacay with him.  AWESOME EH’ing the FNG while he should be snuggling under the covers!!!

With some great fellowship and chatting prior to things kicking off, I gave the 1 minute warning and then the Disclaimer.

The THANG
Alright, let’s mosey to the picnic tables for some DORA

200 step ups as a team.  P1 reps. P2 runs up and over Mt Myrtle

Leg smoker!!!!  I was the odd man out, so did 20 at a time 5 times, which seemed to be pretty consistent with the numbers.  That was tough.

Let’s head to the bridge
Lunge walk to middle
20 jump squats
Lunge walk to end
Plank on 6

Give the lungs a breather
Lazy Dora
100 merkins while partner planks
Sets of 10 each
100 4 count flutters while partner holds 6″
Sets of 10 each

Let’s Mosey past Valor Park to the round fountain in the middle of the street.  4 benches around it.  2 men per bench.  10 Bulgarian split squats each leg.

As we were recovering I saw Fizz doing a bridge plank from bench to fountain wall.  It looked fun!  Of course, I see a merkin starting, and I get all excited…sooooo, I called an audible and it was funny and sounded better than it worked out but we had a blast.  Basically, I wanted guys to bridge plank and do AMRAP merkins while other PAX racoon walked around the fountain and when they got to the next fountain – switch.  It worked and it didn’t, but everyone got to do some bridge merkins and racoon walks, so that was awesome!

We then went to Valor Park.  Based on the floating #weinke,  I wanted a you versus you with some picking up the 6….I was gonna do 11s.  But Hoser, always thinking (of how to do less reps..ha!), saw the menorah so said we should do 8s!  So we did.  1 merkin.  Run across.  7 squats.  Run back.  2/6.  Etc.  Until done.  We talked about Adam Sandler and The Hanukkah Song and other fun Jewish facts!  Manischewitz!

Killer!

I had more running planned but the guys had pushed super hard and were getting smoked so we toned down the cardio a bit and using the 18 columns next to Valor Park, I let the PAX choose their poison.  Bear Crawl to column, 1 CDD.  Bear crawl to next, 2 CDDs.  Etc.  As many as you could.  OR Lunge walk to column, 1 Squat, lunge walk to next, 2.  Etc.  Or combine them in any fashion.

When finished I was going to have us do some Mary there before heading back, BUT….there was a lovely blonde walking her dog, and knowing Karma is single….I made, as Karma called it, “A Veteran Q Move” and we moseyed to the other side where the dog walking was taking place…I hollared, Karma you animal, do you really want us to do MORE pushups??  You are a machine brother…the woman that lands you will be one lucky lady!  Karma jumped right on…thanks man….we still doing coffee at 8am at Tidal Creek?  YHC: Yes sir – you buying again as usual?  Karma – “of course”!  Points scored ? (hopefully).  SOTO – do some recon for Karma and figure out who this lady is.

We did 22 merkins there OYO #22Kills

Then it was time to head back so we did, some moseying, some running fast, all getting better, all leaving no man behind!

TIME!

Moleskin
– This was a great time!  I love the impact F3 has near and far.  Having our brother from Cape Fear was fantastic and him bringing the FNG was incredible. 3 #RedwoodOriginals in me, Hoser and Penelope there is cool.  Southend guys making the trek and Fergie pre-running…all just AWESOME!   Great to go over the mission, credo and 5 core principles.  Great to talk about getting 1% better and leaving no man behind.  Great to talk about transformations #WasNow and the impact F3 has had on all of us.  I think the FNG got a great taste of Brotherhood and is hopefully hooked.  I hope all you dudes enjoyed the morning and especially the fellowship in the COT and talking about things!
