Prison Indian Run back to the flag.  Loosing team received 10 Burpees and the winning team had to hold plank. This turned into a Prison sprint back to the flag.

Wapner reporting for YHC and Crabby PO. Arrived early to find several PAX including 5 Hillfolk and the BlackCat banner already in place (and trying to block my parking space). The men kept rolling in right up to 0530. Quick warmup and short mosey to Happy Place. Plenty of grumbling with extra hold added to the end of the Bat wing. The steeper hill was use for the first time and we’ll have to bring that back again. More added degree of difficulty from Crabby with HR merkins added to the stair suicide – suck factor extremely high. The attempted prisoner Indian run race turned into a full on jailbreak. Unclear if anyone was able to run from the back and pass the leader. Great time at coffeeteria however Cornwallis must have put in a complicated order. Gas Man put away his standard three plates and we got to share in good stories about wives’ hot ass and punishing thigh grip (see what you miss out on if you skip coffeeteria…). Fantastic to have 26 men and 2.0s, and let’s not miss out on the opportunity to keep building on the momentum and reach more men in the community that need this. It’s been an honor to site Q BlackCat from the beginning to where we are now and excited to see what Crabby PO has in store for the next year.

Absolutely perfect morning for a workout and the PAX didn’t disappoint…. that is except for Oompa Loompa. Dreadful fartsack if there ever was one. He laid a beatdown on us Monday and YHC couldn’t wait to give it back. Nevertheless 13 men (and young men) strong endured a lot of block work. Got the arms nice and warm with the bat wing for what was in store. Some difficulty in describing the contest but the PAX jumped right in for a spirited race around the fountain (team #1 victorious). YHC’s 2.0 seemed more interested in catching toads than carrying blocks, but that is to be expected from an 11 year old I suppose. Block work continued throughout including a new ring of fire with block held out and a lot of block presses. Arms are definitely going to be feeling the burn later. Could turn out to be an all time great name and maybe first in F3 Nation with NOR Toomah (think Arnold Schwarzenegger). Great to have Porkchop back with us off of injured reserve. 2.0 asked when we got home how many times I’ve led the workout, so I counted (yes I am a CPA after all), and today was Q #65. Hard to believe it’s been that many, but it is always rewarding and great to see the progress being made as we approach 2nd anniversary of BlackCat. Keep EHing and keep accelerating! Aye!

Welcomed in our FNG (Kyle Bruton) for the workout. It was great to see us get to double figures this morning. The mumble started off with the motivator making more than one appearance in the workout. Underestimated the burpee mile and the amount of suckness that came along with it. We made sure to mention Pew pew and his family- hope all is well. Great overall workout this morning that included NO stairs.

3rd F Thought for the day.

Here is a thought for the day: listening to a series of sermons from Alistair Begg about David vs Goliath, the comment from David that caught my attention the most so far was this, in response to Goliath’s first threat to give David’s flesh to the beast and the birds. David said, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, 47 and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand. They say that David was no more than 16 years old. To say “the lord will deliver you into my hand and I will CUT OFF YOUR HEAD. . .” Two things struck me. 1. David, with the balls to go head to head with Goliath with the “trash talk,” and 2 the faith that he had that Goliath had to be put down not for the sake of the Israelites but for the sake of God. It was GOD that David was defending not himself. And the fortitude to stand up to the world knowing who is God was is amazing coming from a teenager. It was a “no-brainer” for David to do what he did for the sake of not letting foolish people defile his God.

I hope that we are able to pass our values to our children in a way that has them so deeply rooted in who they are and who the belong to.

Rebound workout from 5 PAX on Wednesday to 9 today. PAX must love a good block party (other than Oompa Loompa who was reported to be afraid of the block). Announced name of the workout as Cell Block 9, but after a few parts was suggested it should be The Blame Game due to Humdinger blamed for Prisoner Indian run, Crabby blamed for La La Leggy, and Jay-Z blamed for farmer carries…. as long as it’s not YHC to blame that’s fine. Plenty of moaning and complaining during farmer carries and that should continue through the day and into tomorrow with soreness in the forearms. Running for the second part of the block party was a welcomed relief. Wall sit until Q got tired conjured flashbacks to Burpo in APC back in our Hot Dog days. Humdinger commented that those coaching days are gone now that all the kids are snowflakes. Use the weekend to turn up the EH and let’s keep the momentum going into next week! Aye!

Moleskin:

Joined brothers nationwide to honor Lt. Michael Murphy and all of our other fallen American heroes. PAX employed several strategies for breaking down the running and exercises. All were difficult but looked like straight through (mile, exercises, mile) was the hardest. Imagine doing that with a 20 lb. weight vest and in the sandbox in Afghanistan. The pullups were modified many different ways – t-claps to Piper for completing all pullups with no modifications. We had a visit from Gas Man on patrol but missed out on seeing him put down about 3 full plates of food at coffeeteria. Great to have double digit PAX again and let’s keep accelerating. Last year for the Murph we had 5 and this year 10. Let’s double our number again for next year. Get out there and EH! GIA!

Solid morning temperatures almost brought out double digits. One solution was to possibly never put burp back mountain in the PB: Noted. There was possible talk of renaming monkey humpers to wapners during the ring of fire. The caterpillar was not well liked as I forgot my phone at the starting line and I wasn’t just going to “walk” back for it. Adding the new prisoner Indian run seemed like it was well hated by all= a good burn. Overall a good workout today.

I only borrowed it…They can have it back!

Moleskin:

A little light in the PAX and heavy on the fart sack this morning.  But the 5 who posted were mostly good sports about trying out YHC’s new to us workout.  YHC spent some time on twitter this week and came across this workout out of the F3 Louisville area that sounded like it would be good.  PAX gave it a go this morning and it proved challenging and the mumble chatter started off early when it was announced that each exercise came with 100 reps.  Ended up running short on time and YHC called it good after 8 of the 10 exercises.  We still managed approx 1.7 miles.  This workout will resurface again soon, with some modifications so that we can fit it into the 45 minute time frame.
