The gloom was biting cold this morning and the temptation to stay in the warmth was strong. But, the DRP isn’t going to take itself and deceleration begins the first day you don’t take it. 6 strong HIM answered the call but no flag or assigned Q to be found. 5:29 and YHC offered to take up the helm for an impromptu Q-llaboration on the fly.
SSH, copperhead squats, hillbillies, weed pickers all IC
* interesting side note: YHC posted in Seattle last week and they call them daisy pickers.
Theme of the day was 10-20-30 and the idea was to wander around to different locations doing mini routines with those rep counts.
grab a coupon and gather at the bottom of Kill-a-man-jaro
10 rockees, backwards mosey halfway up hill, 20 merkins, mosey back down hill, 30 V-ups
10 genuines, mosey with coupon up to speed bump, 20 shoulder press, mosey back down hill, 30 curls
10 rock-a-bye-babies, bear crawl to fire hydrant, 20 jump squats, duck walk back down hill, 30 LBC
mosey over to the rec center to look for something else to do. someone mentioned some stuff around back so off we went to find a new area I never knew existed (thanks Bartman!)
10 jump ups on planter, run around building perimeter, 20 dips, run around building, 30 step-ups
10 derkins on planter, raccoon crawl length of retaining wall, 20 incline merkins, reverse raccoon crawl same wall, 30 leg lifts IC together on fence
Head back to the flag with a black mamba run where Bell called an audible and sprinted back the last 75 yards back…solid.
We were technically out of time but YHC decided to squeeze in 21 crunchy frogs IC for good measure
Not much in the way of announcements this morning. Prayers for those affected by the crazy weather and tornadoes last weekend. CSAUP plugs (Hammer’s upcoming trail race and the BRR), also encouragement to come support the Bell Memorial Park launch.
Bell’s burst of energy and grit at the end of the beatdown was awesome. He smoked himself in the process but T-claps for leaving it all in the gloom in true HIM fashion. A few short weeks ago he was still dealing with the RNG struggle we’ve all been through and is on the cusp of being ready to take charge and lead the group. So awesome to see the impact of F3 in other men who are better and stronger because of it. It’s hard for me to remember life without this brotherhood and I’m more than grateful for it.
