Cold Hands, Warm Shorts #F3Joust

A chill was in the air today, so we decided to get warm and stay warm. Here’s how it went down:

The Thang

–          SSH x 20 IC
–          Imperial Walker x 20 IC

Mosey to track

60 seconds of running, fellowship pace

60 seconds of called exercise

30 seconds of running, 80-100% effort

30 seconds of same called exercise

The exercises were:

  • Burpees
  • Carolina Dry Docks
  • Merkins
  • Nipplers
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Russian Twists
  • Freddie Mercury
  • Squats
  • Lunges

–          Burpees

11’s on benches, visitor side across to home side of the field with Dips and Decline Merkins

–          Audible about ¼ of the way through for time

Jailbreak back to lot

LBC x 20 IC

Heels to Heaven x 15 IC





When all was said and done I think we covered between 7-9 laps around the track, about 2 miles. Strong work by the PAX, too many #LarryBirds to mention.


After the first few laps, no one was cold. We warmed up quickly and stayed that way until the end, resulting in #ballofsteam instead of #ballofman (thanks, Splinter)


Speaking of Splinter, he was in rare form today with several comments and #refuseniks. Too many times I looked up to see him with his hands down his shorts to “keep them warm.” Somebody get this guy a new pair of gloves.


Semi-Gloss, per usual, set the fashion bar high in the #gloom. The hat reminded YHC of Bill Murray in Life Aquatic…different color, same idea. The jacket was allegedly pulled from the dark laundry room this morning; one can only assume because it was glowing in the corner.


Thanks to Header for taking us out and for the opportunity to lead.
