Welcome to the Cul-De-Sacs

Welcome to the Cul-De-Sacs

It was a last minute Q substitute, but YHC was ready as there was an area of Ballantyne we had not used for the Brave.  At least one I have not used.  The cul-de-sacs of Wingman and Markettimer’s hood.  I had planned to use these in the past, but the rain always ruined the plan.  I saw the forecast and thought, not again……but when we all met at launch point, I said, we are going to get wet as 1 hour and 4 miles in a garage is NOT FUN!!!

Upon leaving launch point we worked are way east on Ballantyne Commons toward the apartments.  I informed the PAX that the theme of the day was 2 and 13.  My youngest 2.0 turns 13 today and it is July 2nd.  Thus 2 and 13.  Several grumbles coming from PAX.  I always enjoy the grumbles from the PAX.


15 SSH

15 Lo Slo Squats

Plank position stretching with right leg to right hand and then switch to left foot to left hand


The Thang

Run lap around apartment parking lot.  Then pair up for partner work.  Remember 2 and 13.  Each PAX does 2 Merkins and then run opposite direction from partner around the parking lot.  At point of reaching partner on lap (half – way) execute 13 air squats and complete lap.  3 sets

Mosey over to the cul-de-sac neighborhood with amazing hills.

1st cul-de-sac 2 burpees, run  to the end, 13 jump squats, repeat

2nd cul-de-sac 2 peter parkers, run to the end, 13 bonnie blairs, repeat

3rd cul-de-sac 2 merkins, run to the end, 13 merkins (legs needed a rest, haha), repeat

4th cul-de-sac 2 lunges, run to the end, 13 dips, runs backwards, repeat

Mosey back towards launch, but we still had 13 minutes so time hit up a parking garage.  Each PAX to lead mary as we work up the levels.


Fire Hazard — Flutters

Midriff — Lo slo J Lo

Wild Turkey — Sid the Kid

Olaf — Floor Sweeper

Gruden — American Hammer

Then on the way down 10 Merkins at each turn, 60 total

Two 45 second wall sits and back to launch



I was looking forward to Soft Pretzel’s beatdown, but also enjoy being able to Q the Brave.  YHC is upon his 1 year anniversary with F3 and although Bagpipe was my first posting, The Brave was my second and has become the one I look forward to each week.  I truly appreciate all the men of F3 and it has been good to me mentally and physically.  THANK YOU men of F3.


July 5th, 8am across the street from the Gibson in the corp park, there will be 2.0 friendly workout with 30 minute workout followed by kickball.  Reach out to Midriff or War Eagle for details.

Fire Hazard will be running Saturday morning from the Anna Springs Greenway.  6am launch.  Reach out for more info.

Pray for Grasshopper as he had an accident uptown this week and needs our support.
