The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Conditions: 58 but felt colder
FNGs: No FNGs
COP: SSH (IC) x15, TTT (IC) x10, Imperial Walkers (IC) x10, slow run around the building to grab a block.
YHC had been doing a lot of running and rucking so he wanted to give his legs a break and focus on some other parts. He got there early and set up the parking lot ahead of time with 6 cones, about 12 paces apart, and set blocks at stations 3 and 5. Each station was assigned an exercise:
- Curls 4 the Girls
- Freddy Mercurys (IC)
- Overhead Press
- LBCs (IC)
- Tricep Extensions
- Flutter Kicks (IC)
Instructed that Pax would start with 10 curls and in turn, would progress through each station completing 10 reps of each exercise. The caveat is that they they had to continue the exercise they were doing until the next station was unoccupied. Once a Pax got to station 6, he would do flutter kicks until the six was in and completed their 10 reps. Then the Pax would do another 10 Flutter Kicks and return back through each station in the same order to ensure that everyone got about the same number of reps of Curls and Flutter Kicks.
Rinse and Repeat to give each Pax the joy of being first and last…
Mary: Had a few minutes to spare so walked back through each station doing 10 reps using their coupons for all exercises (except Freddy Mercuries)
Namerama: Flash, Mr. Feeny, Olaf
Pledge and COT
Announcements: Anniversary Party 1/12 and convergence at 7 am that morning. Also the 5k run at 6 am before the actual convergence.
Devo: YHC confessed that he didn’t even think about a devo until he was setting up the stations before the workout. He had been focused on deciding the format of the exercise that he completely forgot an important part of an F3 workout. The same thing was happening in his life where he signed up for a couple of events that will occur on weekends where he has his 2.0s, and he didn’t check with the M first. Even though there was no ill-intent behind the action, he was so focused on doing the events that he didn’t think about discussing it with the M and look at the full impact. Sometimes we even do this with God and pray that He helps us accomplish something, without even asking Him first if it is something that we should be doing. The saying that “it’s easier to ask for Forgiveness than ask for Permission”, isn’t always a good (or smart) idea…
Moleskin: YHC forgot that Friar Tuck had HC’ed until he became gaseous during Flutter Kicks. Friar Tuck is expecting the birth of a 2.0 any day and it was a great reminder to check on him. No baby yet, just a fartsack…
