The shovel flag was planted and 25 Pax (no ox) showed up to get the weekend started off right. Larger than normal crowd as Twitter traffic (which almost shut the internet down the night before) raised the curiosity level in South Charlotte regarding YHC’s plan. Four men showed up at 5am (so they say) for some KB work (#nowdrespect).
Jog past Hops as he drives in late and head around to Little Ave after short detour to back entrance to the school for team assignments, coupon selection (oak, bricks, and jump rope), and COP.
Teams grab coupons and head over to large parking lot for some relay racing.
Partner 1 grabs bricks and heads down to 2nd light (YHC called the third light but smart whippersnapper counted the one at the starting line so audibled – turned out the whippersnapper is wise for his age), partner two grabs jump rope, and partner 3 grabs the piece of oak and follows after partner 1. Teams carry oak back and forth between lights and do either brick work or jump rope while off Paul Bunyon duty. Brick work was:
Circle up for 10 burpees and a few minutes of Mary – Low flutter, low dolly, high flutter, high dolly, LBC
Line up on line for some running work
COP – Kill a few minutes with exercises I don’t recall including plank
Twitter stock jumped 10 points this am due to surge in traffic last night related to YHC’s plan. Guesses of pavers and cinder blocks missed the mark by 30-40 pounds #gobigorstayhome. Those oak stumps were brutal to carry. No worries about repeat performance – they will be split and thrown in the fire soon enough.
Purple Haze, Champagne, and others continue to poke the bear with pre-workout KB starting at 5am. My guess is the battle will continiue and YHC will have to get even more creative.
Hops noted several new bible studies getting started including one at South Park at lunchtime. Check web site for more details.
There are still spots available if anyone interested in the Time Warner Arena workout tomorrow am. Sign up on the web site.
Abacus and I thank all the PAX who have made donation to support the fight against brain cancer and joined Team Chepul Hill. Our team has raised over $6k in two weeks, which would not have been possible without the support of F3 men. We are truly blessed to be a part of such an awesome group of men and my family thanks everyone that has stepped up to support us.
