Shovel flag planted (thanks, Mermaid) and disclaimer proclaimed, 16 studs marched off into the gloom for the weekly Anvil beatdown. Here’s what we did:
Divide into 2 groups based upon weight. Pick a partner from the other weight class. Partner in hand (figuratively for most), mosey to the rock pile and pick a respectably heavy rock. Raise boulder to shoulder and mosey to the COP.
Given that we’ve recently had 50% turnover at the site-Q level, I wanted to make sure everyone knew that Anvil is situation normal, full steam ahead. The Anvil standard was met today: use the unique variety of the AO (the “Anvil”), map out a strenuous exercise (the “Hammer”), encourage fellowship (10 hand-slap merkins = at least 10 high-fives every 5 minutes or so) and repeat for 45 minutes.
Good to see a couple new faces out there. Good also to see no tights. Tights are not part of the Anvil standard, in case anyone wondered.
Yes, this was a slightly-modified version of a workout I led back in April (http://f3nation.com/2014/04/23/relentless/). Full disclosure: I warned you it would come back. It’s a good one. 2x a year good.
#paystobeawinner: Team Radar and Lobstah Roll. We were chasing these guys all morning. Not sure which one of you was the heavy weight… which means you followed the pre-tweeted instructions and chose wisely. Well done.
Standard fare: 3rd F Aftermath (SBUX-Piper Glen) and HDHH are every Wednesday. As one guy said, “I drink coffee all day until it is socially acceptable to drink beer.” Well said, my friend, well said.
Extraordinary fare: Joe Davis Run coming in January. Sign up for 5K and/or 10K. It’s with your F3 buddies and it’s for a great cause. Don’t think too much. Just sign up.
#soleredemption – Bring your shoes. Give them to Boutique (the Shoe Q). Going on in Area 51 until 11/22, but 11/19 is last day to deliver to Anvil. If you haven’t donated by then, leave the ones you come in.
