Good Times at the Yellow Rose

The VSF was planted just before 13 men planked in the parking lot at 0659 for a few words of encouragement and a run down of the disclaimer from the Gentleman Q. Then with a “follow me” off we went chasing Mermaid the wrong way around the track. Here’s a breakdown of what we did today:

The Thang

Mermaid Q

Run around the Proving Grounds track and circle up on the far side of the school, next to the dumpster, for COP:

  • Mountain Climber x 20 IC
  • Merkins x 20 IC
  • Burpees x 10 OYO
  • CDDs x 15 IC
  • Slow Squat x 20 IC
  • Burpees x 10 OYO

Mosey to the benches in front of the school:

  • Step Ups x 15
  • Dips x 15
  • Decline Merkins x 15
  • Repeat

Plank-o-rama, including Mission Impossible. Then 10 Merkins on Q’s count.

Mosey a little farther over in the parking lot for the Triple Nickel:

  • Sprint across the parking lot and do Jump Squats x 5
  • Sprint back and do Hand Release Merkins x 5
  • Do this 5 times

Mosey to the back of the school and grab a boulder:

  • Bicep Curls x 20
  • Shoulder Presses x 20
  • CDDs x 20
  • Front Arm Raises x 20
  • CDDs x 20
  • Burpees x 10

Put the boulders back and mosey up the school for some Semi-Gloss a/k/a Peoples Chair – 40 Shoulder Raises

Partner up for Partner Merkins x 10 (that’s 55 for those of you keeping score at home).

Purple Haze Q

Run to the Yellow Rose parking lot. Stay with your same partner. Perform called exercise then split and run in opposite directions along the loop around the Touchstone Shopping Center…~6/10ths of a mile. When you meet in the back along Bevington, perform same called exercise, then keep running back to the launch point.

  • Loop 1 – Squats x 20
  • Loop 2 (partners run in opposite direction from 1st run) – Jumping Lunges x 20

Line up along the curb in the parking lot for more running:

  • Suicides – sprint to 1st line and back, 2nd line and back, far curb and back.
  • Lunge walk to 1st line then sprint it out to far curb.
  • Backward lunge walk to 1st line then backwards run to launch curb.
  • Bear crawl to 1st line then sprint it out to far curb.
  • Backward bear crawl to 1st line then backwards run to launch curb.

Time for one more loop run.

  • Loop 3 – Bear Squats x 30

Circle up in the Touchstone parking lot.

  • The Spackler x 10 IC
  • COT

Moleskin

The Gentleman Q treated the Pax poorly throughout his 30 minutes. It was seemingly continuous motion push-o-rama…heavy on the merkins and CDDs. Our upper bodies got all blown up.

After too much time stirring up the asbestos in his attic during his move, Radar apparently has black lung. It started during the COP and continued all around…hacking cough, hocking up mucus and spitting loogies all over the school grounds. Poor kids come Monday. Kept it up at the shopping center too…although his mucus is clearly not even top 10 in the most disgusting things in the Yellow Rose lot.

Speaking of the parking lot, we were forced to keep our voices down during the suicides, etc there. At the far curb, two guys fast asleep in their car. Strong night apparently. Radar and Spackler began to reminisce…going back to many mornings seeing the sunrise from the parking lot of the Yellow Rose. #GoodTimes

Still clawing my eyes out after Loop 3. Semi-Gloss went shirtless. YHC’s hoping for a mild summer.

Solid group of men out there this morning. Another strong Q from Mermaid…thanks for stepping up at DZ. Thanks to Ribeye for his first site visit and a big welcome to @F3Crappie from Columbia.

For the record, I’ve only woken up in a parking lot one time and I def wasn’t with a dude. And be thankful you only had to see Semi Gloss shirtless for a few minutes. I had to look at that mess for a few hours today at the pool. #F3WAXING needs to take place soon.

Gotta love the guy that tears his sweat soaked shirt off because it is too much and then puts it back on minutes later for coffeteria.

Awesome morning,Great Qs with good solid beatdown. Thanks for welcoming Crappie into F3 with a solid beatdown. My view in the six I witnessed great 1F and 2F. Unfortunately saw more of Semi-Gloss than I cared to see. I thought we loss Stagecoach to a bowel movement when he ducked into the woods.

I absolutely recommend getting out of your comfort zone/routine and posting to a different AO. Great to experience different 1F provided by new AO & QICs who bring it like Mermaid & Purple Haze. Great to share & experience solid 2F. Awesome Morning in Gloom!

As always, great job on your Q, PH. Thanks for doing BB. Hope that Crappie enjoyed DZ. Not real sure how Radar made it through with the lung issues.
