Attitude is Everything

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 01/26/2019
  • QIC: Papa Smurf
  • The PAX: Sandcrab, Dill Pickle, Show and Tell, Seinfeld, Zamboni, Bada Bing, Tone Deaf, Inside Out, Snaggle, McDreamy, Yard Sale, Wrangler

Attitudes are patterns of thinking…The QIC always has an O No when he hears the word Burpee come out of the Q’s mouth but has decided to embrace the suck and is better for it.

“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destination.”  C.S. Lewis

“Happiness is the absence of striving for happiness.” Some old Chinese dude.

The Thang….

Warm Up   Don Quixote x 11…Reacher x 11…SSH x 11…Plank Jacks x 11…Capri Lap to get warmed up.

1 legged hop to 50 yard line…switch legs….Hallelujah from one end of the field to the other x 2…

Partner up for Bear Crawl 1-2-3….100 merkins….200 LBC’s…300 squats….

Circle up for a core ciabatta  45 sec on   10 sec rest…flutter kicks…plank…BB sit ups…Plank Jack…

San Antonio Shuffle the length of the field

Quarter Pounder partner   25 merkins, 50 lbcs, 75 mtn climbers…100 ssh…

Follow the QIC around the park…to the tennis court…balls to the walls…mosey again and do a few dic butkis….mosey to the tennis court….balls to the walls again…mosey to the center of the field and finish with one minute of Linday Lohan and then 5 IC merkins….

Little did the Pax know that the QIC lost most of his  Weinke on his phone when he witnessed two PAX crossing third street on his way to the Q and had to pull a Jumanji and go from memory…as usual, the bear crawl one two three smoked the pax early and forced the QIC to call a few audibles…while Pickle was a trooper wearing Zamboni’s weight vest during the Q, he also cost the Pax 10 burpees for excessive chatter.

Somehow, someway, the PAX completed the mission with an awesome attitude and hopefully trending toward a little better shape. It was good to see the Sawgrass boys and Seinfeld post and crush the workout. The one thing that makes F3 great is each other’s willingness to lift each other up in spite of injuries and vacations.

Prayers were brought forth for those in need and we closed the day with a chat with God.
