12 #HIM decided to NOT take the Daily Blue Pill and posted to The Colosseum to be entertained by YHC on Q. It was a very quiet crowd so #mumblechatter was at a low level but the #effort was at a high level as we pushed forward through what #life throws our way. Side Note: Jekyll decided to go yogging (soft J) which is apparently running for an extended period of time.
Dynamic Warm Up
High Knees, Butt Kickers, Toy Soldiers, Slide Left, Slide Right, Karaokes Left, Karaokes Right, Flamingos, World Wide Leaders (Power Skips #registered), Long Strides.
Slow Mosey to the Arrows.
Now before YHC even explained my idea (which looked good on paper) a comment from the peanut gallery turned out to be true in the end “arrows are never a good idea”. We decided to forge ahead anyway – because in the end – we don’t really have any other option (both at a post and in life – more to come on that in a bit).
So here was the different Phases of a Burpee Deconstructed:
Phase 1: 3 Squats at every arrow
Phase 2: 3 Froggers at every arrow
Phase 3: 3 Merkins at every arrow
Phase 4: 3 Bombjacks at every arrow
Now the Pax saw this next Phase coming up Broadway in a cab. But #life is kinda like that in a way – you see something you do not want to do but have to tackle it anyway.
Phase 5: Reconstructed Burpees at every arrow
Now the Pax may have not seen the next phase coming. But #life is kinda like that in a way – sometimes you think it can’t get any worse and then something blindsides you at a low point. We tackle it anyway because what is the alternative?!?!?
Phase 6: Bearcrawl back to start (about 125 yards judging by Google Maps)
Crowd Pleaser! All Pax dug deep to finish that one.
Next up? Jacobs Ladder with MORE Reconstructed Burpees.
Then Mosey to start for 6MOM.
Great work by all Pax! Appreciate humoring YHC on the arrows. Appreciate the opportunity to lead. Appreciate the #encouragement from the brother on my left and the brother on my right. Appreciate F3 The Fort for everything it has done to make me a better person.
YHC #encouraged the Pax to take that step forward into service. It may feel uncomfortable, you may not think you are making an impact, you may be afraid to put yourself out there. The answer is to take the step and keep taking that step forward. You will eventually have an impact. Otherwise we will be on the sideline and that is not where F3 is designed to keep us. F3 wants us out in our community being a leader. Aye!
