Four men (three respects and one ‘no respect’) joined together on a fine SC morning to get their daily feast at the Golden Corral. Here is what they did:
Mosey out of the HT shopping center to the new apartment complex behind Express Oil Change. Circle up for COT:
All in cadence: SSH x 40, Potato picker x 15, Merkin x 10, Squat x 20, Windmill x 15, Imperial Walker x 20, Carolina Dry Dock x 10/move to a regular plank/6″ hold/regular/left arm, leg high/flip over, 10 dips/right arm, leg high/flip over to regular plank. Rinse and repeat whole sequence without taking a knee.
Mosey to the alley between HT and O’Reilly Auto parts.
Starting at the front of Harris Teeter, sprint to the end of the building and back, and immediately go to people’s chair along the side of HT. Rinse and repeat 4 more times. After the first set, while we sat against the wall, we took turns telling each other what our F3 name means, who named us, and how long we’ve been in F3.
Line up along the HT wall, assume the BTTW position and hold it. Climb down, bear crawl over to the O’Reilly building, assume the BTTW position, and hold it. Climb down and bear crawl back to the start. Rinse and repeat (crowd pleaser).
Mosey to the parking area near the new Green Olive Grill restaurant. Using the parking lines as a guide, make your way to the last parking line by sprinting forward, and side shuffling across the parking lines in a zig-zag fashion. Rinse and repeat three more times.
Take a short mosey and circle up for 9 minutes of Mary:
Freddie Mercury x 25, Pretzel crunch x 10L/10R, Flutter x 25, Superman hold x 3, LBC x 25, Hello Dolly x 25. End with the BODY DESTROYER
Naked Man Moleskin
Had a good time with the 3 gents who joined me this morning. The 3 men and a baby is a reference to the three ‘respects’ in the group today (Cornhole, Gecko, and YHC) and Lutefisk, our warbaby. Smaller F3 workout groups usually lend themselves to more personal mumble chatter and today we took time to learn about the origin of each other’s F3 name. Cornhole’s name is a reference to his upbringing in Iowa and his alma mater, Nebraska (Cornhuskers). Gecko works for Merril Lynch and refers to Gordon Gekko from the movie, Wall Street. Lutefisk hails from MN and Lutefisk is a Scandinavian dish (dried fish soaked in a lye brine). I lived in MN for a couple years about 30 years ago and remember trying this fish once. It’s something you don’t forget. Anyway, YHC was at Lutefisk’s first workout at the Colosseum and tagged him with that name. You can read about the origin of my name, Senator Tressel, by reading the Alcatraz backblast from January 19th.
To provide a little change of scenery, we did COP near the clubhouse of the new Evolve, apartment complex behind the Express Lube. The clubhouse has an indoor gym and YHC tried to EH a guy who was headed to the gym for a morning workout on the treadmill (BORING). Perhaps the next Q should take the Pax to the same location in the coming weeks and see if he can get some of those apartment dwellers to join our ranks. They really don’t know what they are missing. Today was a great morning spent with my friends and the best way, hands down, to start each day!
Announcements, prayers, and praises:
Read your newsletter: lots of running events coming up (Joe Davis, Operation Sweetooth, Yeti, Rooster)
Prayers for a daughter of a friend of Cornhole’s who suffered a stroke and bad car accident.
Prayers for Gekko’s son in college.
Prayers for Lutefisk’s father who is struggling in a new relationship.
Prayers for YHC’s upcoming surgery and recovery.
