The Thang:

Conditions – 75, Soupy but not raining!

Goldberg threw out a poll on Twitter last night gauging whether PAX thought we’d get 15 at the Riviera this morning or if the fartsack would win out. YHC checked the results of this poll this morning before heading to the AO. Only 5 votes, and 3 were in favor of the fartsack. Not exactly the ULTIMATE motivation I was hoping for but I loaded up the cinder blocks and headed out. Got to the AO to find a few PAX milling around and then saw the flash of bicycle lights in the distance. It wasn’t 15 PAX as Goldberg hoped for, but a strong showing of 13 none-the-less.

0514 One Minute Warning

0515 Disclaimer


34 SSH IC – Not all of cyclers were ready to get started right at 0515 so we did SSH until Bluegrass could change out of cycling slippers and into some decent shoes. YHC hates to see any PAX miss the SSH. Just doesn’t feel like an F3 beatdown without the SSH

The Thang

BOMBS with Blocks
PAX partnered up to complete:

50 blockees
100 overhead press
150 merkins
200 block swings
250 squats

While PAX performed the exercise, PAX 2 was instructed to either ran the full perimeter of the parking lot or rucked 2/3 of the perimeter. Most PAX rucked the entire perimeter anyway. #harderthing After each PAX had a round with the ruck, we switched it up to a farmers carry with the ruck.

All PAX completed BOMBS with about 5 minutes left. We reracked the weights and headed to flag for a quick round of Mary:

15 Hello Dolly IC
15 Rosalitas IC
15 Boxcutters IC

YHC also encouraged all PAX to listen to the 43 Feet podcast episode 6 discussing #shieldlock. It’s a concept YHC misunderstood and gained a much better understanding from the podcast. As a Region it would benefit us all to develop our shieldlocks.

Prayer Requests:

Bluegrass’ nephew had a close friend who just graduated high school pass away

Always an honor to lead,
