CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Gave thanks for all that we are able to do and all of the blessings we have; asked for guidance, safety, and servant’s mentality. Asked for help for those in need.

Welcome to FNG Small Things (First concert and theme music of his childhood was Blink-182)

MOLESKIN:
Day started off like normal, with Rump and Sauce screeching into the parking lot at 5:30 on the dot. Heavy beats heard from the Rump Truck. Additionally of note, Coach K got out of his truck at least a minute earlier than he normally does.

An FNG rolled up, just like Oatmeal planned – except it was a different guy than he thought. Pleasant surprise as the other FNG had texted Oatmeal 15 minutes earlier with the “not this morning” text.

On the first exercises, some heavy initial resistance to putting oneself in the muck. It gradually became apparent that it was going to happen so we might as well wet down.

Turns out the lightpoles at Glencoe on the sides of the Glencoe football field are not symmetrical.

Modified the Prisoner Get-Ups from 200 to 100 because dang those are hard.

Tunnel of Love was not a fan favorite – completely unrelated, YHC got trapped underneath a couple PAX who just couldn’t quite hold it up any longer.

Coach K crushed the burpee broad jumps; he might have taken 5 jumps to get to the end of the court

Oatmeal stepped up to lead the Bernie Paint the Lines, kudos to him. Unfortunately the task was a difficult one and it turned out to be a rough leadership stint. He eventually offered his resignation after starting normal paint the lines.

DadHacks might be in the running for best Shield Lock name in F3.

Peppa is still on his way to #56InARow

Gave thanks for other HIMs in our life to push us forward; and for doing so faster than we could possibly push ourselves. Asked for faith and guidance to serve and Live Third after our Creator and Community.

MOLESKIN:
Run-heavy day as it was Thursday. Guys hit north of 3-3.5 miles depending on time to finish.

As we were about to start The Thang, the only other guy at the track sprinted by us to his finish line in dramatic fashion, leading several PAX to give him T-claps.

Guys gradually separated by pace, with a few groups of 2-3 forming for support. As guys finished and went back to pick up a 6, groups got larger, leading one PAX to note he felt like a VIP with a crew of bodyguards.

Very light misting throughout the morning made for a nice way to keep cool.

Sincere apologies to all for the degree of profanity in the music – YHC should have known the Spotify playlist called “Get Turnt” would be filthy.

Welcome to Peppa, who is in town from Louisiana for work. He’ll be in town with us for 56 days so has promised to make 55 more workouts.

MOLESKIN:

Lots of mumble chatter but VQ was too busy thinking about stuff to recall all of it – here are the cliff notes…

MumbleChatter – Pax suggested “Prime Time” would be great FNG name for a super cocky FNG.

QIC kept stopping exercises on rep increments other than intervals of 5 which invited mumblechatter.

PAX learned not to make eye contact with partner during “empty wheelbarrowing”.

PAX complained of all the Merkins this week.

PAX mentioned that MARY on the soft top was more enjoyable than MARY on pavement or turf.

QIC Brought favorite beer (Love Street Kolsch from Karbach) to celebrate VQ

Chairman Mao showed his knowledge of Deep State mind control programs by spouting off facts about Project MKUltra.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

MOLESKIN:
On a windy morning, Chairman Mao made a late appearance, skipped the usual Warm-O-Rama for the People’s version to ready himself to challenge AlrightAlright.  This lasted about 200yds into the first qtr mile at which point he ran out of gears.  Muted mumble chatter as the running had most of us gassed although Eli once again shows us what it looks like to glide over the pavement!  YHC had some counting issues when doing step ups, but was able to regain control and finish strong.  Half miles were a crowd favorite as was the calf raise redux.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. Q Source on Wednesday night was enlightening as always.  Look for the encore presentation on Friday, 1130 at Preston Center.

WARM-O-RAMA:
Skipped due to workout

THA THANG:
YHC and Alright devised A Workout Unlike Any Other in the spirit of the Masters Tournament assigning an exercise to each hole of Augusta National.  With partners, the goal was to complete each exercise x hole yardage in three minutes.  As the timer expired score was taken for each “hole”.  To achieve reps x yardage on each hole resulted in a birdie. A score of par was recorded as noted below.  Anything less was considered a bogey.  No sand traps, water hazards or penalty shots!  Holes were as follows:

Tea Olive 445 reps (yards) –  SSH – Par 300

Pink Dogwood 400 reps – IST – Par 400

Flowering Peach 350 reps – Flutter Kicks – Par 300
Flowering Crab Apple: 240 reps – Crab Cakes – Par 200
Magnolia: 495 reps – Monkey Humpers – Par 300
Juniper 180 reps – Jumping Spiders – Par 180
Pampas 450 reps – Plank Jacks – Par 300
Yellow Jasmine 570 reps – Squats – Par 400
Carolina Cherry 460 reps – Carolina Dry Docks – Par 300
Camelia 495 reps – Calf Raises – Par 300
White Dogwood 505 reps – WWI SitUps – Par 300
Golden Bell: 155 reps – Burpees – Par 155
Azalea 510 reps – Alabama Prom Dates Par 400
Chinese Fir 440 reps – Seal Jacks – Par 300
Firethorn 530 reps – Overhead Claps – Par 400
Redbud 170 reps – Groiners – Par 170
Nandina 440 reps – Mountain Climbers – Par 300
Holly 465 reps – Low Dolly – Par 300

The tournament began in a dead heat with several team posting birdies on the first two holes and things steadily went down from there.  Scores began falling as the course showed its fangs.  Rules were changed mid-workout to encourage teams to complete exercises when it was a foregone conclusion a bogey was the only possible outcome.  Team with highest reps lost a stroke, lowest reps gained a stroke.  The round continued until hole 14 at which time the weather horn blew and PAX happily packed in their “clubs”.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out

MOLESKIN:
Mumblechatter was generally focused on the structure (or lack thereof) of the workout, the difficulty and pure impossibility of achieving even a par on some of the “holes”.  Reality hit PAX on holes 4 & 5 as it was quickly acknowledged by Alright that 495 monkey humpers may have been a bad idea.  It never improved from there.  Overall grumbling and pain throughout.  Comments about rule changes was thrown about and I believe someone commented that changing the rules so many times was similar to playing golf with an 8 year old.

YHC set out to make Amen Corner (holes 11-13) something extra challenging, but alas, it all sucked!  In fact, PAX continued to whine (YHC maybe most of all) about their calves through Tuesday’s workout.  But, by god, I was going to get a birdie!!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. Q Source on Wednesdays and Fridays at Chick-Fil-A on Hillcrest and Preston Center, respectively.

Naked Man Moleskine:

This workout is an absolute beatdown.  It is a mental test from the beginning with the 100 burpee start.  YHC always struggles to keep up a strong pace throughout this hour of pain, and that was what prevented me from improving my score this quarter.  However, a few of our guys made serious improvements from last time.  #tclaps to Coach K, Rump Roast and Sally for showing huge improvement over the last three months.  Let’s all work hard to be better next time.  For some of us that might mean improving mental toughness.

#Tclaps to Pow Pow for making this his first F3 beatdown ever.  They’re not all like this.

Thanks to Oatmeal for EHing Pow Pow and to Ant Man for bringing the speaker and a playlist.  The playlist got much better reviews than Teasip’s at our first Fitness Test.

We’ll roll this back out in three months.  Be preparing.

Naked Man Moleskin:

We all learned that it is going to take a lot of work to make serious improvement from 1 quarter to the next.  Now it is time to put that work in.  We need to push ourselves even harder on Mondays and Thursdays to make the running easier the next time we do the Mustang.  We all need to improve on push-ups too.
