The Thang:  We jogged to the Chat Tech parking lot.

11’s   Starting with Squats (10) and then crab walk about 25 yards.  Then we did *180 degree Merkins.

*[Starting with a Merkin, turn 90 degrees, do another Merkin, turn 90 degrees and then another Merkin.  That’s One.  Bear Crawls back to the other side.]

This was brutal.  The Merkins got really tough as the number increased.  Office Party commented on how the extra weight from the rain didn’t make it easier.

We then jogged back to the Amphitheatre and GI Joe led ACT II… we had about 14 minutes left of work to do.

We started with 10 sets of Bonnie Blairs and 10 sets of American Hammers at the bottom of the stairs. We did suicides up and down each landing until we reached the top.  At the top, we did 10 burpees and 10 V-ups.   Ran back to down and start again.  We got in about 3 or 4 sets before time was up.

COT:  Glamour Shots shared about how he’s made lots of progress since starting with F3 in February.  He also shared his passion for seeing other men join us and encouraging us all to be on the lookout for men that need a band of brothers.  We prayed about that and also Office Party’s 2.0 who will need knee surgery.  This is a tough setback since he planned on going out for the track team at AU.

We had coffee and hung out for a while, but the rain started coming down hard, so we made an early exit.

It was great leading the beatdown with my 2.0, GI Joe!  He’s home from college for one month.
