It’s Getting Hot Out Here or it’s Just Summer

It was the first “official” day of summer and it sure felt like a sauna at Area 51.  8 PAX showed up anyway to get their weekend started off right.  As the clock struck 0700, YHC led the PAX on a jog around the soccer fields and we circled up for COP:

  • SSH x 20 (IC)
  • IW x 20 (IC)
  • Squat x 25 (IC, Down on 3/Up on 1)
  • Merkins x 20 (IC)
  • MC x 20 (IC)

Head over to corner of soccer field for Four Corners:

  • Round 1 – Karaoke left to 1st corner, 5 merkins, Backward run to 2nd corner, 5 merkins, Karaoke right to 3rd corner, 5 merkins, Forward run to 4th corner, 5 merkins.  Plank and wait for PAX to finish.
  • Round 2 – High knees, backward run, butt kickers, forward run with 5 jump squats in each corner
  • Round 3 – Slide left, bear crawl, slide right, crab walk with 5 burpees in each corner (that one hurt)

Mosey over to rock pile, grab a rock (size matters as we will be moving), and head back to sideline of soccer field:

  • Rd 1 – 5 rock curls, run to midfield w/ rock, 10 rock curls, drop rock & run to other sideline, run back to midfield for 15 rock curls, run back to start w/rock
  • Rd 2 – Push Presses
  • Rd 3 – Goblet Squats
  • Rd 4 – Tricep extensions

Return the rocks to rock pile and jog to playground behind school for 6 MOM:

  • Dolly x 20 (IC), hold’em for 10 count
  • Flutter x 20 (IC), hold’em for 10 count
  • LBC x 25 (IC)
  • Rosalita x 20 (IC)
  • CCV x 10 R (IC)
  • CCV x 10L (IC)

Move the party over to the stumps for a little circuit work:

  • 10 jump ups on stumps, 10 tire hops, head down trail to benches, 20 dips, 20 decline merkins
  • Rinse & repeat x 2 (after locating Gobbler & Beaver who went for a little extra credit run on Nature Trail)

Mosey to front of school and circle up for Jack Webb:

  • 1 merkin/4 air presses up to 10 merkins/40 air presses

One minute left so AMRAP burpees for final minute



  • Summer made its presence felt as everyone was drenched by the end of this one.
  • Good to have McGee out with us as he made a guest appearance at Area 51, stopping by for a pit stop on his way to the beach.  Guy is strong and out front for much of the morning, though he did admit that planking may be his kryptonite.
  • Welcome to Beaver (FNG, Kyle Conn).  EH’d by Patrick O’Boyle of F3Metro.
  • Had to send out a search party for Beaver and Gobbler after 1st round of circuit work.  They took a detour onto the Nature Trail rather than making a left back to the stumps.
  • Nice work by all the PAX on a hot summer morning in the Carolinas.


  • F3 Dads has begun.  Held each Saturday during the summer from 9:00-10:00 a.m. at Colonel Francis Beatty Park.  Meet at the ball fields near the large playground.
  • Sign up for the fall edition of the Mud Run to be held 10/4/14.  Sign up now and teams will be formed later.
  • F3 Dads Camp to be held August 15-17 at Camp Thunderbird.  Sign up is available on the F3 website.
