Awesome group of men this morning. Everyone pushed hard. The support was awesome. Thanks for appreciation Glidah. F3 has been the best thing that happened to me last year. Not only the workout, but also the fellowship. Open Door and Sanctuary has played a great part in my life. Thank you Posse for EHing me during the blood drive last July.  There is a blood drive around the corner (June 19th). Sign up. You might find another FNG there.

Commit to Q

When Glidah asked me to Q ignition I was excited about it. I Plan and then re-plan, and then erase everything. Had just 1 mile loop in plan all others had been erased. As always I have good number of PAX on my Q.

Mosse to cuthbertson road and see a cop vehicle guarding the entrance. Planned to circle up for some exercise, but PAX warned of the danger of cars coming in. Scrap the circle time and mosse back to school. Do few exercise and let the runners take off and come back for the six. Stop at the high school entrance stop sign. Few more exercise and then run a mile into the neighborhood. Now am exhausted as I had not posted for few weeks before that. This is the 1 mile loop that was not erased from the original plan. Had the Pax run the loop with mike-tysons at the start, Jump squats a the other end and speed skaters at the 3rd end of the loop.
Back to middle school entrance stopping for few exercise in between. Do some Big bois, donkey kicks. Partner up. Partner 1 runs around the middle school parking lot, other partner does dips and airpresses and alternate. Mosse to cafeteria. Step ups and run to shed, come back, incline merkins and run back to the shed. Lots of miles. Back to COT from shed with 5 burpies at lamp posts. End with American hammers.

I had missed F3 for few weeks and it’s been tough. Glad I was able to be back and Q again. PAX did rallied around me as I was struggling and are great encouragement.

Exploring uncharted territory (DO NOT ENTER)

Why not come back from injury to Q. Took away some sleep the previous night, but being on Q made me commit.

DICCS given.

Mosse to Animal hospital parking lot for some warmups (SSH, Imperial walkers and Moroccan nigh club).

The thang: Mose to start of N.Providence St. Run around the uncharted territory.

10 Jump squats / 10 bobby hurries and 10 squats at each of the triangular loop. Repeat 3 times. Fuse tried to push me to run faster, but today was not the day.   Back to COT for some exercise for the core (Big Bois and Merkins). Had couple of mins left, so decided to run a short loop with dips in between. End with some stretching.

Moleskin:

I missed F3 so much and was glad to be back. Learnt importance of stretching after the workouts, let’s not forget to stretch.  It is good to Q, it helps to commit and push harder. 

Glad to have (FNG) Josh Tutwiler (Blood clot) join us today.

Always glad to be out with fellow PAX who support and push each other.

Periscope was the 6th man. He started in Arsenal and now is the siteQ there.

Announcements:

Rain doesn’t stop us

The rain was not much this morning, but was enough to make me throw away my cheat sheet for todays 1hr workout. All the roads to the high school parking lot was blocked /closed, so had to just use the middle school area, but it had enough routes for a 4 mile workout. 

Arrived early and there was Posse who was quick to give me few tips for the changed plan. Few more Pax joined us.

DICCS given.

Warm ups:

Mose and stick to the oneway (Yes Fusebox we are going up the hill) to Deals road and back to the shelter near the entrance. SSH, Imperial walkers, Moroccan night club, calf stretch and few Merkins.

The Thang:

Partner up to do 100 Merkins, 200 Squats, 300 LBC’s. Partners take turn to run a lap around the student drop off loop. Then add some air presser’s. Mose to the next student drop off loop. Look at the numbers on the pillars and do as many bur-pies (Not my FAV too Blue screen). Start from 8 and go down till 1 (Total 36). Run a lap in between.  What next … Run between the flag poles. 20 dips at one end and 10 incline merkins at the other … what next … 20 jump lunges and run a lap (Yes 2 is 1). Repeat 2 times. Next grab some rocks. Curls, overhead press, swings (I think). 1 more trip up the hill to deals road and back. Relax squat with back agains the wall. Chastian reminds me of the time. Mose (Sprint with Hurry) back to COT. Total 4.2 miles on my apple watch. Wow that was good.

Moleskin:

The encouragement and the push by each one of you took me thus far. Felt nervous and exited. Posse sent me this quote “If it excites you and scares the crap out of you at the same time, it probably means you should do it.

I love the “No man left behind policy”. Yes, that made me keep posting. There was always someone pushing and motivating me. Remember Wrigley making me run 2 driveways and walk 1 drive way at watchtower when I started posting and everyone who circled back to pick up the 6th.   

Hurry was the 6th man. He started out in metro and has recently been posting with us after he moved here. He’s excited to be here. 

No announcements.

NO Chattering

Signup:

When I went to donate blood on 23rd of July did not know what I was getting into. Thanks to Posse for signing me up with F3Waxhaw. I always needed the motivation to workout and that was exactly what I got when I showed up the following Monday. The hardest was the 2nd day when Easybutton was on the Q Walked half the way (This is what Transporter had referred to). But kept at it and then Swimmers put me on Q. Again, I did not know what I was getting into when I said ok. Had few chances and thoughts to back-out but stuck to the task. The thought of being the Q woke me up few times that night. But I knew I’ll have the support.

DICCS given Mosey around the shopping center for about a quarter mile. 15SSH, 15 Imperial walkers, Calf stretch, 20 Merkins, Plank jack then Mosey to Target parking lot, stopping at lights for speed skaters.

The Thang:

Mosey around the parking lot 5 times stopping at each corner for 10 burpes in the 1st, 10 Bigboys in the 2nd, 10 Shoulder tap merkins on the 3rd and 10 jump squats on 4th. Mosey to Petsmart parking lot. 10 Donkey kicks at one end and 10 Hurlies at the other. Repeated for couple of times and it was almost time (Did not know know where it went). Mosey back to COT.

Moleskin: 16 Pax showed up in support, saw many new faces in Asylum. Was just overwhelmed by the support. Fuse box proof read the cheat sheet, Mad Dog was there to check the reflective gears, Transport was there to make sure I was running and not walking.
