Sorry, Parking Lot Full

Sorry, Parking Lot Full

With cones everywhere and parking spaces scarce, 23 gathered in the Latin parking lot for another rendition of #F3HawksNest. After a mediocre disclaimer and the notation that we had two sandbags to move around this morning, we moved out. There were no excavators or construction fences up during the Saturday scouting mission around the vast campus. With the planned path blocked, Hops came through big time, helping YHC navigate to South Campus. The #F3HawksNest pax forgave him for getting lost a couple of weeks ago.

The Thang

Once we found our way, we carried the sandbags to midfield of the turf field for COP…

  • IWs x 10 IC
  • Merkins x 10 IC
  • MCs x 10 IC
  • LSS x 10 IC

We grabbed the bags and moved to the baseball field, where we lined up on outfield grass at the infield dirt. We ran to the warning track, completed the called exercise, ran back and completed the called exercise. We did this for 5 rounds…

  • 10 CDDs
  • 20 Jump Squats
  • 30 Merkins
  • 40 Squats
  • 50 LBCs

After that, we moved with the bags to the Latin Hotbox for two rounds of bench work…

  • 20 Step Ups (10 each leg), 20 Derkins, 20 Dips
  • 20 Lil’ Haze each leg, 20 Derkins, 20 Dips

After some planking, we carried the bags down the gravel road to the softball field and around the back side of Lake Latin. The gravel road dumped us out on South Campus Drive by the turf field where we began. We broke up into two groups and performed the exercises we did on the baseball field while one guy ran to midfield and one guy held the sandbag over his head. We did this until all had run and held the bag. Then we ran 4 full field sprints.

Then we headed back to the launch point with the bags where we circled up for some Mary…

  • Flutter Kicks x 20 IC
  • Toe Tap Crunches x 20 IC
  • Dollies x 15 IC

COT with the #F3FastTwitch guys.


The 14 guys that ran FT at 0515 got all the available spaces. So the HN guys had to park everywhere…along the road, in the fire lane and Gummy even when around front…luckily, because he found Nemo there. Schools out and the projects have begun…cones, excavators and fences were there to help keep us safe.

The Latin campus is vast. We covered some ground and still only got to about “25% of their fields”, per Horsehead. We got 2.4 miles, most of them just moving to the other side of campus. Pretty sure Mermaid already scoped out his fishing spot on the back side of Lake Latin.

Solid group of guys out there today. It is tough to Q when you have Busch, Gummy and Spackler at the same AO. How do you plan a workout that remotely challenges Busch without having Gummy and Spackler refusenik the whole thing? You don’t. But hopefully most got a good workout. Thanks for letting me lead.

Champagne loves the sandbags.


  • New parking area next week.

Don’t believe the Dishonest Failing media. I carried a sandbag 5 times as we moved to and fro. Some [smart] guys found their way ahead of the bags and stayed there, leaving us slower guys to do all the work. Puddin’ Pop was back there with me. HIPAA too, i think. Men of honor.
Other notes:
– OT made the old man mistake of actually sprinting during the sprints and paid for it with a tweaked hammy.
– There is very little difference between Chelms’ CDD and merkin form.
– Snowflake was killing it out there. And by ‘killing it’, I mean farting a lot. Risky.

    Funniest comment of the morning was after Snowflake let one fly. Horsehead: “No two Snowflake farts are the same.”
    Thanks to Haze for showing the site Q’s a new part of campus, namely the “beer league” softball field a the far end of campus with the rollaway bleachers. Thanks to Puddin’ for the beer league reference. That field/part of campus will now be known as “Buttermaker’s”
    Two other things to note:
    1) Spackler actually carried a sandbag
    2) NOTE: Parking for HN & FT will be in the front lot next week; enter off Providence Rd at main entrance at the light. Stay to the right – you’ll see the pax mustering.
    Good Q Haze….even if you did call the exercise with your name….it was sneaky painful

Gummy – you provide perfect example of the pot calling the spout black.
