Hail to the Victors!

  • When: 11/09/2019
  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Fix-it, Butcher, Culpepper (r), Whip-it, Doink, Extinguisher, Farah & Farah (rx2), Updraft (r), Feud

9 HIM of F3 Jacksonville posted in the cool crisp early November gloom of NE Florida. YHC celebrated his b-day earlier in the week and celebrated with too much food and cake.  Finding that no Boondocks Pax had signed up to Q this weekend, he took the opportunity to ensure that he could make up for the extra calories with beatdown dedicated to running, not seen at this AO, yet.  YHC is not necessarily a big fan of these types of beat downs, but it had to be done…   

COP

  • SSHx20 IC
  • Mosey to the wall to introduce the pax a new kind of “warm-up”
    • Donkey kick-offs- 5 donkey kicks and hold the feet on the wall for a 5 count on the fifth kick, then 10 donkey kicks and a 10 count hold, etc. We went to 20 kicks and 20 count hold- crowd pleaser

 The Thang

Mosey to the turf field south endzone.  Pax have been posting at Boondocks for a little over a year now.  They have seen a lot since then, but YHC felt it was time that they were introduced to the MICHIGAN- series of sprints but in Jacksonville, we add a little spice to make this really nice:

  • 10 x 100-yard sprints, 8 x 80-yard sprints…. down to 2 x 20 yard sprints
  • At the end of each sprint: 10 merkins, 10 squats, 10 LBCs
  • Pick-up the 6 after each sprint/set of exercises so pax would start/finish each sprint together

 COT

  • Pax discovered that the term “Ready” was a command and not a question
  • T-claps to Culpepper who DFQ’d

 YHC felt the need to reiterate the messages heard at Anthill and BOHICA this past week.  He shared the tragic story of Toby (aka Josh Padgett) from F3 Cape Fear.  YHC stressed the importance of those needing help to reach out, as well as the importance of us as a Pax to make ourselves available.  Several of us have included our numbers as part of our profiles on Slack. YHC encouraged anyone who needs to talk, to reach out to any one of these brothers.  We are here for you.  It’s our duty to pick up the 6.
