PAX partnered up for B.O.M.B.S. Pax 1 does exercise while Pax 2 runs a stair lap up the steps across to the other set down and then back to starting position.  Swap out and continue the exercise until each amount of reps are complete. The exercises and reps are: 50- Burpees / 100- Overhead Claps / 150- Merkins / 200- Big Boy Sit-ups / 250- Squats.

Mosey to Flag.

Moleskin: It was wet, nuff said.  Good workout despite the rain.  Tried to keep the pace going and the heart rate up on the mosey.  BOMBS got wet and the large rain drops to face was a fun surprise.  Kind of glad the “Blackcat” has those stairs.  BOMBS up the hill might of been interesting with the rain and mud.

Heard some mumble chatter about workouts looking better on paper. Stair suicides proved once again to be killer. It was definitely the most moist workout in Black Cat history. The final mosey past the “happy place” without stopping seemed to please the PAX. Mary was done on the pavement rather than wallowing in the mud but it still managed to soak us all. Good times.

Today was a lot of fun. It was funny hearing PAX yell at DC to get out of his car so we could stop doing the Mason Twists. It was also nice getting to a more visible space on the front side of Northview. I will take Woodchuck’s advice and revisit my definition of “fan favorite” before my next Q! Continued prayers for F3 growth and thanks to everyone who posted!

President’s Day Special – February 19, 2018

It was warm and moist, this Monday Morning, 43 degrees and rising with more than a chance of wet.  Ten men posted, IM, Wapner, Crabby PO, Daisy, Brickyard, Cosmo, DC, Cornwallis, and a FNG, with QIC Meastro.

Moleskin:

Great Morning to have #F3Indianapolis make the early trek to the BlackCat AO this morning.  Loved the strong counting on the cadences.  This was our President’s Day Special and since we have #45 in office, our reps for each exercise made it to 45, even the Burpees.  Our “Happy Place” was a different kind of happy with a switch to the motivator instead of the Leg Blasters, but we had plenty of time to kill our legs elsewhere.  There was some mumble about the Motivator not fitting the pattern of 15s, so maybe we can work up to a motivator from 15 one of these days.

Moleskin:

-During the Ruck we “left the campus” according to Brickyard, which he couldn’t believe we were doing. I had no idea, we just needed to get some more miles and I didn’t want to just do laps at the Swamp. So we ventured behind the abandoned Target and back. Looking forward to getting you boys beyond the borders a little more. Thanks for the opportunity.
-PVC showed up at the Hill and somehow figured out, after no one showed that we meet at Sahm Park on Saturday (check the Pre Blast). He shows up to Sahm park while we are doing the elephant walk. He though it was an injured animal from the distance so he almost stay. Then he saw someone’s bright yellow shirt and figured that was us.
-It was great to Q my first workout here in Indianapolis after moving up here just 12 days ago. Thanks for the opportunity and for coming out!
-Keep EHing and bringing guys out! Let’s surpass the goal of 25 regular pax by the 1 Year Anniversary!

YHC in midst of tax season with 1040 on the mind devised partner workout with 1040 reps. Mercifully kept burpees down for IM fresh off of burpee ladder at #TheHill yesterday. Great news about 13 men there yesterday – let’s get our numbers up here – we all need to work the EH. Maybe Q’s “touching” prayer today will do the trick.
