You guys don’t know our core principles?!?!?!?

AO: Windjammer

When: 2024-05-01

QIC: False Start

PAX (7): Caroline, Deep dish, NRA, Sparkie, Walkie Talkie, Papercut


Back from SMR and didn't want to do a lot of running yet, so I took the Q.  I warned them I had an FNG in tow and that we'd go back to F3 basics...but nobody studied...


Ran in the parking lot with some butt-kickers, high knees, carioca left & right, and then circle up.
  • SSH
  • Hillbilly
  • Weedpicker
  • Willies Mays Hayes
  • Arm Circles Forward & Back
On to the test

The Thang:

Thang #1 Burpee Apocalypse but with skips if the PAX could name the 5 Core Principles of F3 in order.  We had 5 PAX, so I figured that would be easy.  They failed miserably.  I left the BD tired and disappointed.  Note to those that actually read these things, there will be a make-up test soon.   Thang #2 Bring back the John McEnroe on the upper tennis courts.  With the following exercises:
  • 10 merkins of some sort (wide, narrow, offset left/right) for the doubles lines
  • 15 core exercises for the singles lines
  • 20 leg exercises for the middle lines
Run suicide style, so run to the line, do a burpee, and then return to the start to the the above exercise based on which line you ran to. Thang #3 We finished just fine, so we went to the coupon pile for 3 rounds of colt-45s, but some riffle carry in between each round.  We also rotated so we got to see who picked the small coupons. Ran back to the flag for a few rounds of Mary:
  • Box-cutter
  • Flutter Kick
  • Mountain Climber
  • Shoulder Taps


Welcome to our FNG, Papercut! Prayers for Marcello (sp?) and his family after his tragic passing. Payers for Irelyn, a 10-year old battling kidney cancer. Spring Convergence this Saturday!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thanks to Caroline for coffee! No deep discussions today, but got to introduce each other to Papercut and learn about him.  He'll be a great addition to the group.  We discussed summer hours, cold towels, and friday fishing.  What a great group of men to hang out with.  I'm excited to be back to normal BDs....until I get permission to attend BRR and have to start running again. Until next time!
