Impromptu Field Trip



Impromptu Field Trip

20 PAX gathered at Cuthbertson Middle for a good ole fashioned field trip. One PAX actually got dropped off by his mom wife (oh wait, that was Centerfold at his VQ last night at #ClyentDinner). Speaking of children, the impatient Tupperware got a little ahead of himself by asking about YHC’s DCCS. Settle down young fella. I whip out the DCCS on MY schedule.

WARMUP:

  • Plenty of CPR, Cell Phones, and Chap Stick and we even had some headlamps per YHC’s preblast (seriously, please start bringing these on a regular basis just in case)
  • Mosey along path and stop near rocks
  • SSH x 20 IC
  • Merkin/Mt Climber ladder
    • 10 Merks/10 Mts
    • 9 Merks/9 Mts
  • After we did 7, we moseyed into the new side of Lawson via a treacherous nice little path
  • Finished the ladder on the other side

THANG:

  • At each lightpole along Surveyor General Drive – 10 hand release/shoulder tap merkins
  • Lucky 7s: At Paw Paw Road – 7 knee-ups at top of hill, 7 bomb jacks at bottom of hill . . . Rinse and repeat 7 times
  • CHARIOT TIME: Rubbermaid had a couple chariots ready with 90lbs of weight
    • 2 Indian Run lines: 2 PAX push chariot up front, last 2 PAX, do burpee and run to front
    • We did this 3 times up and back on Surveyor General
    • Return the chariots
  • Lightpole sprints with exercises
    • Sprint to each lightpole and hold Al Gore waiting for the 6
    • Exercises in cadence (mini squats, Bobby Hurleys, one legged dead lifts, slow jump lunges, Scorpion Dry Docks)
  • Return to Middle School path
    • Plank work
    • Jailbreak to COT
  • DUNNE

CLIFF’S NOTES:

  • Thanks to Rubbermaid and Tupperware for having the Chariots prepared
  • Strong push by all on the Chariots . . . That pace on the Indian Run was FAST. Particular shout out to Ackbar, Foundation, Deflated, Dana, Rockwell, and Loafer for pushing the pace
  • Trojan, Gerber, and Easy Button were CRUSHING it on the Lucky 7s up the hill. Well done
  • Nails is getting faster . . . Rumor has it that he is itching to get back to his high school track times and squeeze into those short shorts
  • Much respect to GatorCub, Xerox, and Recalculating for not showing your age at all
  • Posse astutely pointed out to Finch that the length of the hill was about the length of a double in softball . . . Finch gave him a death stare and swore smiled and nodded
  • Mad Dog apparently sandbagged the first part of the workout cuz he had PLENTY of gas in the tank on the last jailbreak
  • Last but not least . . . Frack. I’m a little perplexed that Frack didn’t have any crotchety one-liners today. Did he not like the workout? Was he working that hard? Could he not find a punching bag in the crowd? Or has he finally softened up? #InquiringMindsWantToKnow

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  • Dash for Down: Tomorrow (Saturday) at Blakeney. Come out and run/walk or just show up with a coffee and support from the sidelines with the family. THIS is when F3 is at its best . . . BEING the hands and feet in the community and helping others. Well done Rubbermaid for Qing this great event. Looking forward to it. Race starts at 8:30am. Runners get there at 7:30am to meet the Track Commanders (the kids that will ride in the chariots)

THANKS to Mad Dog for taking us out. Prayers for Xerox’s family as well as the Longo family. Have a great weekend!
