I’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 10/28/2017
  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Heisenberg, Hollywood, McDreamy (respect), Scketchy, Pyro, Snuffleupagus (respect), Seatdown, Pud, Macchiato (FNG-Barrett), D-Nice, Xenu (respect), Septum, Big Bird, Mr. Rogers (FNG-Dan), Feud

15 PAX, including 2 FNGs made the decision to get better and posted in the gloom during this Florida-Georgia weekend here in beautiful Jacksonville, Florida. What does this eventful occasion mean to YHC? Not a whole lot. He’s a Thundering Herd and Mountaineer fan.  So we begin.


We started a little differently. YHC brought back something he saw from the F3 Tallahassee PAX and had the F3 JAX PAX face the flag and we recited the pledge.

  • SSH x20 IC
  • Hillbilly x20 IC
  • Little Arm Circles Forward/backwards x15 IC
  • Big Arm Circles backwards/forwards x15 IC
  • Raise the Roof x15 IC
  • Don Quixote x12 IC
  • Merkins x10 IC
  • Big-Boy Sit-ups x 20 OYO

The Thang

Indian Run Around Park until everyone has had a chance to lead- oddly, this actually got us around the park in one lap. Mosey to the cones- which were on the opposite side of the park.

The Death Star-

  • 10 Cones arranged in a star configuration
  • Partner up and head to a cone
  • Begin with 30 merkins, then bear crawl to next cone
  • Continue sequence of 30 merkins and bear crawl to next cone in counterclockwise manner
  • Air Chair for the 6
  • Modification if needed: squats instead of merkins and lunges instead of bear crawls

Return to COP

  • Michael Phelps x15 IC
  • Squats x 10 IC
  • Burpees x10 OYO for the late arrival

Before introducing the next exercise, YHC thought it would be a good point to review with the PAX this month’s Core Value Phrase that we are to commit to memory- DFQ- Don’t F-ing Quit!


  • PAX start at cone at top of star- 10 burpees
  • Sprint to next cone at a tip of the star (counterclockwise)
  • Perform 20 merkins, 20 sumo squats, jog back to first cone
  • At first cone-10 burpees
  • Sprint past first cone and on to second cone
  • Perform 20 merkins, 20 sumos squats, jog back to first cone
  • Continue pattern until all tips of the star have been reached
  • Finish with merkins and sumo squats at top cone

Monkey Humper Suicies x5, 10, 15, 20 reps at baseline

5 Minutes of Mary

  • Flutter kicks x 21 IC
  • LBCs x15 IC
  • Box cutters x12 IC
  • V-ups x 15 OYO
  • WW I sit-ups x 15 OYO
  • Lindsey Lohan


Good work by all today. Way to not quit. Way to persevere. Even if you could not complete an exercise, you stayed with it until you had no more. Next time, you will do better. Remember our quote that goes along with our Core Value Phrase of DFQ-:

“The greatest glory in living lies in never failing, but in rising every time we fall” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

YHC had some commentary on the state of this nation. This country was built on the two basic principals: patriotism and the faith of the people. “one nation, under God.” No matter what this country has been through, its citizens could always rely on at least one of these two things to unite them. For years, the evil one has been working to tear apart our faith. In recent years, he has been working on tearing apart our patriotism. I encourage those with kids to talk to them about your faith. Instill in them the desire to seek that which is higher than them. Life is more than the GameBoy or the X-Box. It’s more than ‘keeping up with the Jones’. Talk to them about the freedoms we have was won by the sacrifices of those that came before us, and protected by those that serve today. And to respect that freedom through mutual respect of opposing opinions, and make attempts to find common ground. By doing this, we find that we may actually agree on things and there is more to us than our opposing view points.


  • Prayers for Seatdown and family for entrusting God’s will for son and his schooling
  • Prayers for Sketchy and his wife for internship opportunity
  • Prayers for Septum and his wife for strength and courage to deal with the selling of her childhood house
  • Open invitation to Feud’s church’s (St. Catherine of Siena in OP) bazaar this weekend
  • Convergence, Saturday, November 11th at Genesis
    • Planned beatdown is the Murph
    • In place of name-o-rama, we will talk about a veteran who gave the ultimate price for his country
