Then on to the fun.  Staying on the practice field parking lot, we had 2 sets of activities spaced out 40 yards.  One station had cinder blocks for us to play with.  We split into 2 groups where the goal was to perform the first exercise on the list (some OYO and some in cadence) then run the 40 yards to the other set of activities starting at the top of the list, performing that exercise, then back to station 1, etc.

I hate you, I love you, I hate that I love you

Weather – 35 degrees and not sunny with a slight wind coming in from the northeast.

13/14 PAX (not sure the total number but 21 was the total between Laces In and Laces out) showed YHC some love by posting on this beautiful Thursday morning. No joke I thought most would post the Celebrity Q CSPAN on the Track considering it is P200 training season. Though he PAX showed some love, YHC didn’t show it back. Here’s how the beatdown went:

The Thang

100 Merkins (jokes stopped after they realize whats happening)

At this point the PAX realize its a deconstructed burpee.

Prayers – Corruptions Mom having Surgery today, FMHS teacher that had open heart surgery this week, marriages, families, kids, our community

Moleskin
1. Thanks Lil E for the opportunity to lead this morning.
2. Great Push this morning by All PAX. Moderate amount of complaining. I can handle that. And yes, I have love/hate relationship with burpees.
3. 1 month into 2018 and how are we all with our 1 word. As some of you may know my word is Patience. It has already taken on many forms throughout the first month. The biggest takeaway thus far is to remember to take a deep breath every now and then and just let it all go out instead of keeping everything inside.
4. Just Breathe

Laces In – Not for the weak minded or those that are hungry!

4 Runners came at 0500 to get some laps in at the track. Daytona is around the corner, but they are preparing for P200 and using their feet. Crawdaddy saw his course for P200 and decided it was time to get training…no messin around!

14+YHC took to the campus of Fort Mill High School. After required discaimer and no FNGs, away we went for a mosey

COP

DID a bunch of stuff….the usuals

  • SSHs
  • Merkins
  • Squats
  • Imperials
  • Peter Parkers
  • Mtn Climbers
  • Flutters
  • Parker Peters
  • Inch Worm Merkins
  • Hillbilly walkers
  • Mosey to front of school for some people’s chair on the wall and 20 overhead presses
  • Mosey to benches for 20 dips 15 derkins 2 rounds

Warm Up over

YHC spoke to the men about the things we keep putting off and avoid doing as much as possible. Tough conversations, the house projects, the doctors visit and most importantly the relationships that need some work or simple phone call. 

Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, -Romans 5:4

By pushing through the tough stuff and the hard things we get stronger and we become the men Sky Q built us to be. Avoiding and masking the pain and suffering we only become weak minded and have no character, as we are not who we should be in all areas of our lives. Continue to get better and build character!

Mosey to main driveway entrance

8 exercises – 15 reps each – run down hill and back up in between each exercise. Fun time had by all!

ski hops
lunge Hops
inch worm Merkins
leg lifts
wide arm Merkins
Merkins

Mosey back to COT with a few ab stops along the way
YETI is 2.24
Sign up to participate as receiver of pain or giver of pain. See Anchorman!

Just in Time

YHC peeled into the parking with 1 minute to spare before the 515 start to see 12 eager PAX waiting to warm up in the cold.  It would have been a bad look for the Site Q to be late to his own Q.

Mosey to the Band Parking lot for COP

Usual suspects – SSH, Windmills, Imperial Walkers, Merkins, Squats.

Mosey over the parking lot loop at the front of the school for Dirty MacDuece.  4 sets of 3 exercises done to 12.  All in cadence.  Lap of the parking lot in between each set.

More Running, Less Bootcamp

#HypeTrain rolled into the #LacesIn Station once again.  This time it was a family affair with #SPEEDFORNEED coming south to join forces as well as #LacesOut (#F3RunClub) (#Yogging (soft J)) converging with the Bootcampers for 45 minutes of …..well lots of running.  The irony was not lost on YHC (the artist formerly known as Mountain Buffalo) as he gave up the ‘running for an extended period of time’ thing years ago.  Vowing never to return.  Yet his own Q hijacked by nothing more than simple running.  At the very least YHC squeezed in a couple of merkins (only for #Rooney’s sake) and taught everyone what an “updown” was – seriously?  Who doesn’t know what an updown entails?!?  It’s even in the gawl-dang name.  YHC digresses.  Here is what happened:

Little Baby Jog to the football field (so cushy – so soft).

Dynamic Warmup

High Knees, Butt Kickers, Side Shuffles, Toy Soldiers, Toe Touches, Long Strides, Power Skips (Trademark: WWLs).

Then merkins (Rooney!!!)  and windmills to straighten everyone out.

Time to Bootcamp:

Partner up and size kinda matters for very confusing sequence.

UpDown – Partner Push – Run to Opposite Side of Field – UpDown – Partner Push

Repeat this every 20 yards as you move down the field to the endzone and then go back down to the other endzone.

(This was a rugby (shocker – I know) simulation – expend energy – sprint – get on the ground – get back up – expend more energy – sprint again – then repeat.  While it was unorthodox and confusing to some – it was a smoker.)

Rinse and Repeat with 2 updowns before each partner push.  Another smoker.

Give me a ten count.

Hey – let’s breakout the running chairs and do some sprints!!!  Tolkien was nice enough to give us all a quick tutorial about how they work.  We split into teams and relayed around the track with weights.  Then we got on the field and chased the chairs for 100 yards – over and over and over and over and over again.  Then some (small) pax jumped in the chairs and they got pushed and the rest of us chased for 100 meters over and over and over and over again.  Okay – enough running!!!  Back to the field.

YHC went back to one of his favorites – the extra long bear crawl.  This time – 100 yards.  Crowd pleaser!

We worked our way back with some rugby sprints (could not resist).

Ended with a little bit o mary then ran the chairs back to COT.

 

Great time out there among so major #HIMs and it’s always an honor to lead.  YHC saw a tweet asking for more “SERVICE” to our community from F3Nation.  No better example of pure SERVICE then Tolkien.  The amount of time/energy/passion/service this man brings to #SPEEDFORNEED is incredible.  Follow his lead in 2018 – get out there – get uncomfortable – and serve others!  Aye!

Sandbag bootcamp

Mosey around the parking lot with toy soldiers and butt kickers.  Then circle up for SSH, honey lookers, morrracan night club and to finish off the warm-up 5 burpees.

After the warm-up YHC had all the Pax grab the sand bags and move down to the football field where we did the following with a partner.

Start at one end zone and move down the field by throwing the bag.  Do one merkin after each throw until reaching the 10, then add one merkin for every 10 yds.

Second exercise: Pax 1 – monkey humpers,  Pax 2 walking lunges to the 10.  Switch every 10 yds.

3rd exercise: Both pax grab one side of the sand bag and walk to the 10.  Curl and press up. (+1 for every 10 yds)

4th exercise: team up with another group and team one will run with sand bag between them to the end zone and back.  Other team is doing American Hammers until they get back.  Switch

5th exercise: Pax 1 – CDC, Pax 2 overhead carry for 20 yds.  Switch and keep moving to end zone

After completing last exercise we ran out of time so we moseyed back COT.  It was a pleasure to lead and I appreciate all the Pax that showed up and willing to try something new.

’Tis the Season to be D.E.L.I.G.H.T.ed!!!

Song from Caedmon’s Call:

“We delight in the law of Your Word.

We DELIGHT in the son who was perfect from birth!”

Yes, I truly did serenade my fellow PAX. Fortunately, no major side comments were heard although one PAX leader stated that it may be the first recorded serenade at an F3 workout.

It was an honor to share a Q at this time of year (in 29 degree weather) with such a remarkable set of F3 men! Merry Christmas!

Today’s Q was in honor of Jesus. I definitely DELIGHT in the son who was perfect from birth!

For today between each exercise, each person throughout the workout gave at least one thing over the past month they are thankful/grateful for OR something they have learned about regarding giving.

(Note: I had a lot of positive feedback about this workout and some requests for descriptions so I have put them in below in case you want to use them for any of your next Qs.)

G:

H:

Hurpees: hand release burpees with a twist for my version: 5X: 1 hand release merkin, then 1 merkin, then 5X: 5 hand releases, then 5 slow merkins

Challenge:

I spoke to the PAX about how 2000 years ago Sky Q sent his son into the world in the form of a baby. When looking for a place to come in from the cold there WAS NO ROOM AT THE INN. I believe we all fall into this trap and put so much busy into our lives that we don’t have ROOM AT THE INN for Sky Q in our lives. We fill our hearts and minds with so much and when it come to his word and being in relationship, we DON”T HAVE ROOM AT THE INN (in our hearts).

I challenge myself and the PAX to make room for SKY Q and see how it changes your life in 2018 and beyond.

Honored to lead this PAX. I am blessed and grateful for each of you!

Ruck W/O: Hill Work on Time

Golden Corral usually draws a good crowd of folks eager to take on a challenge. No different today. A bunch of go-get-ers ready to go get it, despite the cold and wind. Today the ruckers outnumbered the others. Awesome!

No FNGs. The disclaimer was disclaimed. Booties went off their own way, Rad the lone runner went blazing off at a great pace on his own, then we rucked up and got after it.

No 16+ min pace rucking was my goal all WO. So we started off with rucks on running/jogging to the parking lot in front of the church nearby for the COP (rucks off):

  • SSH x 20
  • WM x 20
  • IW x 15 (or so)
  • MNC x 20

Didn’t want to spend too much time on the COP. So then we rucked up and then short mosey over to the hill by the super realistic 300ft tall tree (aka cell tower). This hill is shorter than the hill by the church, but quite a bit steeper.

The Thang – Hill Work

Partner up for a couple of series of exercises / hill repeats.

First series: P1 farmer carries both rucks to top of hill as quick as possible (NO WALKING) and back, P2 AMRAP exercises, then swap. HIIT style, no rest. I did not want to waste any time. Circulate through the following exercises:

  1. Merkins
  2. LBC
  3. CDD
  4. Flutter (HAVE to say that with a thick Boston accent – Fluttah!!)
    >> Rinse and repeat one more time
    >> Plank w ruck on for the 6
    >> Couple of 10 sec breathers, then on to second series

Second series: P1 with ruck on run to top of hill, do 10 deep LSS, return; P2 AMRAP exercises, then swap. HIIT style, no rest. I did not want to waste any time. Circulate through the following exercises:

  1. Ruck curls
  2. Ruck swings
  3. Ruck upright rows
  4. Ruck overhead press
    >> Rinse and repeat one more time
    >> Plank w ruck on for the 6

BONUS: When you get to the top of the hill and look to your left (south), you get to see Tinsel’s house all lit up top to bottom!! Sweet!!

By the time we finished all of that, we were ready to get off that hill. Everyone did GREAT!! Alot of excellent mumblechatter by the group. Man we had a group of characters!! Confession – this is what I love about F3. No matter how much pain you’re in, it is so much better when you have folks pushing you on…..and distracting you from the pain with their 2nd F. It made the time go by much easier.

We had about 5 minutes or so to get back to COT. Rucked up and jogged/ran back…..until we saw a wall…..

People’s chair/wall sit, shoulder to shoulder. Rucks on laps. Sit for about 10-15 seconds, then left end person passes their ruck down the line (group is in wall sit position) while they bear crawl to the other side of the line to catch up to it, then back to wall sit position. Relay down the line until all are done. Tried to repeat, but ran out of time. Back just in time for the COP. GREAT JOB FELLAS!!!

This ruck WO I’ve done before at The Swamp. Stairs there help make it more painful. Had to bring it out to the GC. Sorry for not being original.

COT: Announcements, Prayers and Praises – see Boot Q BB

NMM:
I’ve been keeping my talking during my Q’s to a minimum lately. Hey, it can happen. While we were on our brief breaks, I did want to briefly mention to the PAX something that has been on my mind. December is about Gifts. For me, the most important gift He has bestowed upon us all, beside His Son Jesus Christ, is the gift of time. Time ultimately translates to being able to wake up the next day and start each day new. Time allots you a chance to make things better than they were the day before. It promotes growth. It grants you wisdom. It allows you to show mercy, grace, and forgiveness. It allots you a chance to show someone how much they mean to you. It allots you opportunity to reconnect, correct, reconcile with others. It gives you opportunity to heal. It affords one a chance for peace.

But by no means is this gift guaranteed. It can perish at any given moment. We all are given a certain amount of it, and only He knows how much. This is why we have to cherish every moment we are given, and use it wisely.

I bring this up because in December 2002 I lost my dad to leukemia. I did not talk about this to the PAX. Since then, each year around the holidays I get in a funk. My normally positive, energetic self is a bit less so. It has not gotten any easier with time either. He was my best friend, the best dad one could have. He has had an amazing impact on my life. I was blessed to have the amazing family I am part of, and he and my Mom were the reason that was so. To this day I miss seeing him when I visit and calling home and hearing his voice. I thought he was invincible, a hero in my eyes from the time I was a toddler up to this very day. When cancer got him, it put a hole in my heart and soul that to this day I still feel. Our precious time together on this earth was cut short way too early. My mom has been a total trooper. She is an amazing woman. She’s gone through the loss of a son, a husband, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, her mother and father, in-laws, and friends. But to this day she is still loving, laughing, nurturing as she was when I was a little child. An incredible mother, another blessing.  When my mom’s time is up, it will rip another hole in my heart and soul as well. I do not have any regrets of my time with my dad…..other than he not being able to ever meet his grandkids, my two sons, one of which I named after him. But what I have learned….through the gift of time…..is that they, with His word as well, have both showed me how to be a proper parent, son, husband, brother, uncle, nephew, friend, and citizen – a better person as a whole – our most important task here on earth, for it impacts the lives of others. Now it is up to me to figure out how I can follow that path. I know that one day my time on earth will end, and then I will be with them, with Him. That path will lead me to there.

2018 is coming. A new year. Another gift of time. I challenged each of the PAX to reflect on 2017 (and previous years). Be honest with yourself and identify what things or aspects in your lives you would like a second chance at. What have you REALLY taken for granted? What would you do better? What would you improve? Who would you want to reconnect and reconcile with? Who would you want to better know how you feel about them? Who would you like to forgive, and let them know? What needs to heal? Where do you need to find peace? When you identify the ‘whats’, the ‘hows’ will be self-evident within you if you open your heart and soul to finding the answers. The path may be rough and challenging, but anything worth achieving usually is. Persevere! Use this gift of time wisely.

Thank you for the opportunity to lead.

God Bless

THE PAX OF FORT PLEDGES TO HELP ANOTHER BROTHER AND HIS FAMILY OUT

Its Christmas time and the word of the month is giving so I am asking if you would take moments pray about giving to help a fellow pax. Last year Stang got the Fort and the Rock pax to donate gift cards, cash and presents for me and my family.  This was huge for me and my family, with that  being said I feel the need to help a fellow pax and give back. I have been in touch with our pax of the Fort looking for someone to help out. This morning in COT it was mentioned by Destiny that a fellow pax’s son has just been diagnosed with leukemia and his wife is pregnant with twins. Then again Ginsu and Rock thrill had a tweet about it and come to find out it is an Area51  pax named Bout time his sons name is Jennings. This hits close to home and just knew this is who we need to help this year. a few

If I have never had the pleasure of posting with you in the Gloom I would like to take a second and share my story, Dec 2015 on Christmas eve my 2.5 year old daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia ALL Type B, on Christmas day she had surgery to have a port installed and her first 3 rounds of chemo. We spent Christmas in the hospital and I broke down never cried so hard in my life. I reached out to God prayed that everything will be okay and about 10 min later after the took my daughter back for surgery he answered my pray because a peace just came over me and heard the words its going to be okay.  The last 2 years have been a hard 2 years with ups and downs but also have enlightened me, allowed me to get closer to God.  It also allowed me to become apart of F3 with out the men of this group not sure where I would be mentally and physically today. I like to thank you for the push the words of encouragement.

 

I am asking pax to give what your heart tells you. Prayers gift cards, cash etc. I have seen what awesome pax you can be when challenged to give you all always go above and beyond.

See your site Q’s for collections and or Dark helmet , Stang, Witch hunt, Royale and Cornerstone, we want to wrap it up by 12/22/17

 

2 Corinthians 9:7

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Proverbs 18:16

A gift opens the way
and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.

Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

 

Thanks Again HIMS
