MOLESKIN:
Due to the PAX’s performance on the Beep test, all were subject to the I AM SLOW set of exercises post Dora in the Jungle. Jury is out whether AlrightAlright could have continued. The PAX argued that in hindsight, collusion to drop out earlier would have been preferred. The PAX also inquired about other beep tests (especially pull-ups). Another exercise for another day.

Merkins x10 IC
Copperhead Squats x15

THA THANG:
Mosey to parking deck.

Bucket Brigage Race:
PAX split into two teams. One team had did the Bucket Brigage all the way up the stairs to the top of the parking deck with a 25lb weight brought by the Q. In the Bucket Brigage, PAX line up at the bottom of the steps. PAX at the back of the line lifts the weight over his head, then passes the weight down to the next PAX in line. PAX at the back of the line then runs to the front of the line. Each PAX will lift, pass, run to the front, repeato up the steps. Meanwhile, the other team ran up the ramps of the parking deck, doing 3 burpees at the top of each ramp. Once both teams made it to the top, the teams switched exercises and went back down to the bottom of the garage. Team that completed the race first did mountain climbers while waiting for the other team.

Mosey to Dallas Hall.

Deconstructed Burpee Relay:
Deconstructed burpee:
-Squats x10, x9, x8, etc.
-Merkins x10, x9, x8, etc.
-Leg thrusts x10, x9, x8, etc.
-Merkins x10, x9, x8, etc.

PAX split into pairs. One PAX on each team started with 10 reps of each deconstructed burpee exercise while his partner bear crawled from the bottom of the Dallas Hall steps to the fountain. Once the first PAX completed the deconstructed burpee, he ran to his partner and took over on the bear crawl route. The second PAX would then run back to the Dallas Hall steps to do his 10 reps of deconstructed burpees, then run back to his partner to again take over the bear crawl route. Repeato, except each PAX decreased reps by 1 each time he went back to deconstructed burpees, until completed the workout b doing 1 rep of each.

Stair Suicide:
PAX retained their pairs from the previous exercise. One PAX ran a suicide on the Dallas Hall steps while his partner did SSH. PAX switched once the suicide was completed.

Mosey back to Burleson.

MOLESKIN:
Lots of great Mumblechatter this morning. PAX were all glad to see Coach K back in action, now that he had been cleared to exercise by his own doctor, by Oo-De-Lally, and by AlrightAlright. PAX were also glad that Rocketman, a transfer from F3 Birmingham, joined F3 Dallas for the first time. PAX said that they would not do certain exercises, as the Q said in the disclaimer that these exercises were just “suggestions.” All PAX took the suggestions anyway, realizing the Q’s wisdom. Some PAX grumbled slightly about starting with a workout in the parking garage, since it was a nice morning. However, PAX enjoyed getting a short tour of SMU while moseying to Dallas Hall. Surprisingly, no PAX complained about having to bear crawl for dozens, if not hundreds, of yards.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Ryder Cup Celebration, courtesy of Team Oatmeal, has been scheduled for October 15th at truckyard. Mark your calendars for this great Second F event!

Ryder Cup Day 5

THA THANG:
Mosey to the tennis courts for paint the lines, followed by some Del Brown: crab walk down and back the courts, stopping in between/at the end of the courts for Merkins, Diamond Merkins, T Merkins and Wide Grip Merkins (x6).

Another round of Del Brown followed with Duck Walking down and back with Squats and Bolt 36’s in between and at the end of the courts.

Next did inchworm down the first court and back with LBC (x12) at each end. Moseyed to the football field, but there was standing water, so instead of playing from the rough, we took our free drop back to the tennis court for Samuel Ryder’s ladder. Run across the tennis courts doing decreasing Merkins from 11 at one end and increasing Squats from 1 at the other.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Teasip prayed us out

MOLESKIN:
Some well warranted doubt about if Pepper would show since no one called him, but he arrived a couple minutes early, shocking everyone. Not a lot of mumble chatter this morning, as both Ryder Cup teams were focused on the workout I suppose. Some grumbling from Ant Man that the inch warm felt a lot like a bear crawl (YHC held to his promise of minimal bear crawling as there was none). AlrightAlright complained about the name of Uptown Crunch for an exercise, but claimed he was the one who came up with it, so he really has no one to blame but himself. Oo-De-Lally pushed the envelope with having to leave early, but made the 30 minute minimum required activity for the workout to qualify with about 15 seconds to spare. Overall a good workout enjoy the cooler weather outside and not bear crawling in a parking deck

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
The finale of the F3 Ryder Cup is tomorrow, and it should be a fun one. Everyone needs to show up, even if you aren’t on a team

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Plus One prayed the group out before wrapping up.

MOLESKIN:
Holes 13 – 18 were completed in pairs as the Q was looking for ways to stay within the bounds of time. Despite the beautiful weather, the PAX remarked that the crowds on the track made it feel more like a muni course instead of Le National itself. YHC set out with the intention of a four ball competition but simple math would indicate 4 does not divide evenly into 10 thus generating the new Ryder Cup event of “Five Ball”.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Captains are on co-Q Saturday for a workout you will not want to miss.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
our workouts are more fun when more people show up so let’s try to get out here more often when $2 lone stars aren’t on the line…and if that’s what it takes I think we can come up with some kind of competition to get free lone stars at Ozona every month (maybe 15 workouts a month gets a free 6 pack?). I for one am in on the Monday ruck’s, especially since Mav the Cav can go the distance.

MOLESKIN:
Was really banking on 16 PAX showing up so when we had 14 my planning went to sh*t but we eventually rallied to get teams that would have someone at each base.

First team to finish got a point (they didn’t mean anything but AlrightAlright likes points so why not?), team that had the most reps of one exercise got a discount on burpees the next inning…pretty sure I screwed this up but I was winded and not as sharp as normal.

Shout out to Helmet for not needing Ryder Cup to come to a beatdown (cough, @

Good luck team Special Sauce! If you need a luke warm body Saturday AM I might be able to roll my carcass out of bed for 30 minutes of body destroyer.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC mentioned how every man in this group looks out for his brothers, and prayed that we will continue to look out for each other. We need to pick up the six in life, not just at workouts.

MOLESKIN:
Icebox correctly hypothesized that AlrightAlright chose to Q today because the #RyderCup is the only way that there will ever be a good turnout for one of AlrightAlright’s #beatdowns. AlrightAlright caught the PAX by surprise with the 100 monkey humpers and grumbling ensued. He hopes you all enjoyed getting to work with all of your teammates.

13 PAX gathered in the gloom for Day 2 of the F3 Ryder Cup. Team Special Sauce was only missing Pepper, and Team Oatmeal was missing BOOMER and .

YHC forgot to give the Disclaimer. This is a mistake that all of us make way too often. It is the Q’s job to remember to give it, but let’s now make it a point to give the Q hell immediately if he forgets. This needs to be given at every workout.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Ryder Cup continues tomorrow with Icebox replacing an injured splash as our Q. See you at Caruth Park at 0545.

Be on the lookout for an announcement about a #ThirdF event taking place at Park Cities Baptist Church on Thursday night.

MOLESKIN:
For the 2nd time in F3 Dallas history, the PAX attempted the Barkley Marathon Workout. 4 of the original 6 participants came out for a second attempt. Rain was int he forecast, so YHC and the fearless leader attempted to fit the pain station writeups into plastic bags, causing a slight delay to the start of the workout. Mid workout, one of the pain station write-ups disappeared due to a good Samaritan walking the neighborhood picking up “trash”. The ABCs spelling your F3 name twice was a crowd pleaser, especially for AlrightAlright. Coffeteria was held after at Whataburger, hilighted by the claim that the #6 song in 1985 was actually the #1 song ever; much skepticism was expressed.

PAX were given a choice between teh OG music workout and a mystery workout; PAX opted for the music, ad after being told the mystery workout was the group Mustang, there was much relief. Good to have our F3 Austin brother out there. Alright, Coach K, and YHC realized doubling down on workouts was a horrible idea about 10 minutes in. Coffeteria at Bubbas followed the workout, where the sweat continued due to the AC not working.
