Bushwood Site Qs Tanyatine and Fiji have taken their talents elsewhere for the last 7 weeks which has given me the opportunity to Q twice in that time.  I was much better prepared this time with more than a few hours to get my act together.  Create a playlist…check.  fun workout planned…check.  All that was left to do is make it out of bed and scoop a few other Firethorne boys in the clown car.  Check.  Let’s go!

Disclaimer given

Split up with the MASH Unit and the rest of us.  The grunts and groans of the MASH unit could be heard through the entire golf course.  The guys killed it.  Awesome work.


Mosey around the street over to the driving range for a bit of a warmup.

  1. 18 side straddle hops
  2. 18 Moroccan night clubs
  3. 18 merkins…changed to 36 due to One Star harassing Q about counting/cadence
  4. We may have done some burpees in here…cannot recall. May have blacked out early.

Front 9

Mosey around parking lot to head to the first tee.  Break into twosomes.  One runs, the other works hard until runner comes back.  Oh…and half way through the run we decided on 5 mandatory burpees each time around.

  1. LBCs
  2. Diamond Merkins
  3. Curb Dips
  4. Wall Sits with punches

Repeato one time.

I knew everyone needed a second to catch their breath for what was coming.  El Torro was given the honor of a 10 count before we mosey over to start the back 9.

Back 9

After abruptly ending El Torro’s 10 count at 6 we mosey over to the 10th tee.  The same twosomes are kept.  Flo gave us a little reprieve with some ab work before we get going.  Things got tougher here.

  • Wheelbarrow down the parking lot and both do 20 big boy sit-ups.*
  • Other person wheelbarrow up the parking lot and both do 15 big boys.**
  • Do this three more times and decrease big boys by 5.

* disclaimer 1 – the original distance picked was ridiculously long.  Audible on the fly

** disclaimer 2 – doing big boys after being the tire end of a wheelbarrow is brutal.  Another audible on the fly.  Decrease the count.

With a few minutes left we mosey back to COT for some last-minute ab work.

  • 60 second plank
  • 18 count pickle pounders (or some derivation) courtesy of One Star
  • 60 second heels to heaven lead by Big Ben

I wanted to take the prayer out in a bit of a different way today.  We read a poem that probably speaks to many of us that do F3.  Those of us that understand the importance of giving the day everything that you have.  Here it is:

This is the beginning of a new day.
I can waste it or use it for good.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
leaving in its place something I have traded for it.
I want it to be a gain, not a loss;
good, not evil;
success, not failure —
in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it today
