YHC knew when 8 Pax showed up for the pre-run/ruck, it was going to be a great gloomy morning at THL. We did the mosey to the LAX turf field where YHC went through the F3 Mission and 5 core principles. The PAX jumped in as well. Next, to the warm-up.
Imperial Walkers – 10 IC
Weed Pickers – 8 IC
Peter Parkers – 10 IC
Michael Phelps – 10 IC
We then took a short mosey to the goal-line where YHC explained the following:
Thang #1 – 100 Yard Burpee Broad Jumps
Burpee Broad Jumps from GL to 20 yard line – 20 BBS; Plank while waiting on the 6. Pax started together.
Burpee Broad Jumps from 20 yl to 40 yl – 40 Squats
Burpee Broad Jumps from 40 yl to other 40 yl – 60 Shoulder Taps (Rubicon)
Burpee Broad Jumps from 40 yl to 20 yl – 80 LBCs
Burpee Broad Jumps from 20 yl to Gl – 100 SSHs
Thang #2 – Sprints, etc..
Starting on GL, sprint to other GL; do 100 OH Claps; backwards run to start. Air Chair for the 6. We started together.
Gl to other 25; 75 Mtn Climbers (Rubicon); backwards run to start; go back and pick up the 6.
GL to 50; 50 Leg Raises; backwards run to start; go back and pick up the 6.
GL to 25; 25 Merkins; backwards run to start; go back and pick up the 6.
Thang #3 – Indian Run Marathon
Ran around the white lines of the field, Indian Run Style. PAX in back, ran to mid-field, did 5 Burpees, then ran to the front on the line. We made it 3 or 4 laps, then time was running low.
Ran back to the flag for a few minutes of Mary. Bloodhound led the Pax w/ Flutters Kicks and YHC finished it off with Dolly.
A lot going on this year. Misty’s 1 mile a day everyday challenge, Super Dave & Hopper’s 50 HR Merkins/day for January challenge, Babyface’s 2023 Loaded Relay on 1/16, Bloodhound/Hombre’s Halfs on 2/11, Smoky Mtn Relay. Olan trying to talk PAX into doing the Georgia Jewel. Leaky being quiet for an entire beatdown (hope you feel better!). Lots of “fun” stuff to motive you this year. As the great White Claw likes to say….”LFG!”
Prayers for Pelosi after his loss of the family dog. If you know Pelosi, he loved his dog Guiness. I remember when I lost my dog a few years ago and telling everyone during the COT. Pelosi got a little teary eyed just thinking about the day that he would lose Guiness. Prayers for all those returning to work this week.
Great time this morning and a lot of accountability. YHC wanted to bring back the Mission and 5 core principles to the beatdown he has gotten away from doing this as he enters year 5. Also, made a point to get back in time for some Mary. This is great for the newer Pax like C3. Also, did the 6th man with Bloodhound. Let’s keep this going, even if most of the Pax are old grizzled F3 vets now.
Bloodhound was happy as he had large group of pre-runners. Flower was not happy with the burpee broad jumps. Gecko missed the music and complained about all the heavy breathing from the old men. Misty and Olan both were in great moods after the UGA win. Pella making some changes going into the new year, getting ready for Smoky Mtn Relay. Just some of the highlights from a great morning and a great way to start the year. #doyourbackblast #makebosoxproud
