It was soggy but there was no rain delay this morning for the first ever Bushwood AMHAP (as many holes as possible). 11 men decided “tee it up” to see just how many holes they could finish in roughly 35 minutes on a rather balmy early March morning. We teamed up in groups of two, DiCCS
given not given (Disclaimer, Cell phone, CPR, Safety)… doh!
Mosey through the first nine holes while stopping to complete the following warm up exercises at hole 3.
Since it was wet, the course was laid out as follows (do the exercises below per hole and then run to next hole, run the opposite way when you make the turn at the 1st/18th and 9th/10th holes)…
I “cradle to graved” it. Done!
The rain held off this morning and it was actually a perfect temperature for “golf.” Everyone pushed hard and managed to finish at least 36 holes. The One Star/Bottlecap team led the charge and finished 39 holes (they actually could have done more)… well done guys! Thanks to everyone who showed up this morning and thanks for allowing me to lead. For those of you who haven’t posted at Bushwood it’s always an open invite.
16 men decided not to fartsack on a cold, late January Monday to join me for a social anxiety busting Q. DiCCS given (Disclaimer, Cell phone, CPR, Safety) with reminder to circle back for the 6 and to lead Mary.
Mosey to middle school front parking lot.
Pair up (clydesdale with gazzelle) for 10, 20, 30’s loop
Mosey to the covered area in front of middle school for a round of “Super Tysons”
Next up an on your own “Rockwell Ripoff” keeping with the 10, 20, 30 theme
Mosey to the sidewalk area of the bus lot and do alternating Side Shuttles to the bathroom area.
Grab some wall on the bathroom
Closed it out with a fast paced mosey back to COT with 10 Dry Docks every other light pole. I took us out (thanks to Goodfella for pushing me to do so).
Chilly morning today, however, as Mad Dog mentioned… it felt a little warmer than expected. I wasn’t sure what to expect regarding turnout and my goal was to simply get through the workout with minimal mistakes etc. Thanks to those who circled back for the six, lead Mary etc. and to Chicken Little for giving me the opportunity to lead today.
One thing I wanted to mention here is my appreciation for F3 and the acceptance/push it provides. Most of you have no idea who I am etc. and that’s pretty much “on me.” I’ve shared my anxiety issues with the PDS crew and a few other Pax so they know about my “jester.” I’ve struggled with social anxiety (Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people. It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person’s life) for as long as I can remember and I’m just now finally starting to address the issue (thanks to F3). Today was a big step towards facing my fear, getting out of my comfort zone etc. (even if it was just a simple re-cycled Q that probably bored some of you). I wanted to mention my “jester” because I sense that some of you are mistaking my shyness for something else (being aloof, uncaring etc. which for those that “really” know me… isn’t who I am at all). Anyway, hopefully this paragraph gives you a littler more insight in to “the current world of La-Z-Boy.” I look forward to facing my fears in 2020 and getting to know each of you more as we progress through 2020 and beyond.
10 Pax braved the humid/somewhat rainy 71 degree morning gloom for my first “official” Bushwood Q (I had an unofficial Q a few weeks back… more on that later). Disclaimer given and we were off.
Mosey around “big bus lot island”: 18 Moroccan nightclubs, 9 SSHs, 18 Imperial Walkers, 9 Merkins, Upward Dog, Downward Dog with leg swing, Calf Stretches.
** Disclaimer ** … due to travel last week and lack of planning time I had to fall back on some of the exercises I’d tested out at my unofficial Bushwood Q a few weeks back (sorry/not sorry to those that attended both).
OK, as most of you know by now I’m not the “fleetest guy afoot”, however, I decided to take the Pax on a slow mosey “off the grounds.” Everyone appeared to enjoy the sights while doing Bomb Jax ladder (first cul-de-sac, increase by one at each driveway on the right… these were a “fan favorite” during my unofficial Q), Bobby Hurleys ladder (second cul-de-sac, increase by one at each driveway on the right) and Speed Skaters ladder (third cul-de-sac, increase by one at each driveway on the right). We then reversed course with a run back to the Bushwood bus lot doing a Burpee ladder at each lamp post.
Upon arriving back at the big bus lot partner up… clydesdale with gazelle. Partner one does bear crawls around the outside of “the triangle of death” (three cones spread out in a large triangle) while partner two runs to the wall does 10 donkey kicks and then sprints around big bus lot island back to the triangle. Switch partners upon finishing each lap around the island. Audible called after 2.5 laps.
Grab some curb for some Jack Webbs consisting of “La-Z-Boy” merkins (reverse hand placement merkins works the biceps)/LBC’s combo for 9/36 “holes.”
A little too much chatter during the neighborhood portion of the workout but overall we all got through it. Thanks to everyone (especially Bottle Cap and One Star who helped with counting) who came out in support of my first Bushwood Q.
Announcements – 1. Last day to purchase the new “F3 Waxhaw” T-shirts. 2. Bottle Cap reminded everyone about being respectful to teachers etc. during workouts on school campuses once school starts. 3. Convergence on Labor Day weekend (Saturday at 7AM, Cutherbertson HS), details to follow.
La-Z-Boy took us out… say what!?
25 Pax made it out to MRHS this AM to witness a 51 year old white-haired guy with a “lethargic” F3 name who drives a “chick car” perform his 2nd Q (is this a run on sentence?). I’m not sure if they came out to see if I could actually perform the task or if they thought… hey this guy is old, has a “low energy” F3 name and drives a Mini Cooper so how hard can it be? Anyway… let’s find out. DiCCS given and we were on our way.
Everyone really pushed themselves this AM and it was a good mix of young (some teens) and old (you know who you are) and I was pretty much overwhelmed by “the crowd.” Thanks to Dana, Fiji and Goodfella for helping me keep “the cats herded.” Also, thanks to Bratwurst and Dasher for leading Mary throughout the morning. Hopefully the PAX got what they came for… and/or deserved.
