Matching Outfits

Matching Outfits

Today I wore my knee high red socks and also happened to wear a red Adidas shirt and red shoes. I looked like I was trying out for the high school soccer team (with the likelihood of getting cut), which Hops made sure to make fun of, and deservedly so. What’s wrong with looking good and working out? Orange Theory gets to do it, yoga chicks get to do it, Pure Barre gets to do it – why do we have to be the workout junkies? Because that’s the way it’s supposed to be…I won’t make the mistake again Hops.


Thorough Mermaid approved disclaimer given and we took off.


Run around church, quick warmup, and across the street to the neighborhood hill.


1st stop – 10 merkins at the bottom, 9 at the top, 8 at the bottom, etc….it was about a mile distance to get warmed up.


Rock station – grab a partner and grab a lifting rock

Parter 1 – 10 reps of given exercise, Partner 2 – 9 reps of given exercise…down to 1 and then run

  1. Shoulder Presses (2x)
  2. Louganis’s (2x)
  3. Curls (2x)
  4. Burpees

Before Burpees we dropped the rocks and did reps of curls, shoulder presses, chest presses (2x) and tri-extensions in cadence rotating our rocks to the left twice.


Down to parking lot – plank over parking line

5 merkins, sideways crawl to next parking line, 5 plank jacks, crawl back to original spot 4 merkins, crawl back and do 4 plank jacks, all the way down to 1.

Run back to lot and we were done.




Really random group of guys came today, lots of new guys, regulars and some F3 legends as well. I love it when that happens.


Joker brought out the football at the end of the workout. This should be a regular thing at all workouts.


Night Court recently had his 3rd child, a 3rd daughter (Vivian Renee) congrats brother…and nice knowing you. Cottontail is a financial adviser and he has 13 kids so he knows what he’s doing. Befriend him now.


Racquet came out for his second workout (after being an FNG last week) – he was killing it today. I think his name will stay the same after some initial threats to change it to something….well worse.


Archie came back out. We’ve missed the sub-18 year old presence but he looks as fast as ever…and stronger too now that he plays football and doesn’t run cross country anymore


Wham-O is getting married next week. We offered to be his groomsmen and he didn’t turn down our offer.


Cage showed up to the lot 3 minutes late, he finally found us with 12 minutes to go. I would love to have a video showing him running around looking for us for 30 minutes.


Prayers for Darth Visor and his family. An Alpharetta F3 brother who passed at a workout. This is the worst thing that could happen at a workout, obviously, so let’s be prepared for it. I always carry my phone on my arm when I Q. When a minute or even seconds could mean life or death it’s something we should all consider.


Thank you Hops for taking us out.


Thanks for all who came and for agreeing to follow a bright red, douchly-dressed pretend soccer player into the gloom.
