The Thang

Indian Run big loop, grab a block at the end

Next exercise:

  • The pax had a choice, grab one block to do an STH, or grab 2 blocks to do a farmer’s carry. Everyone grabbed one block.
  • Another big loop, all pax had to STH the block the entire way. If they stopped (or put the block down), each pax had to individually do 20 curls.
  • Even though I immediately regretted this exercise, it is always a good one to get warmed up and blood moving.

Next, we enjoyed some Tabata:

  • 15 minutes total, broken into one-minute intervals
  • Each minute, pax did 10 merkins and 10 LBCs; resulting in 150 merkins and 150 LBCs in 15 minutes. 
  • Music was started, and work was done (playlist below)
  • No complaining was heard until around 10:00 mark. 

Buddy Love asked: “Hey, can we do some running”. Little did he know, next exercise was some track, legs, and pull ups: 

  • Mosey to the track
  • Station 1: 25 monkey humpers (FNGs always give this a second look + thought)
  • Jog to station 2: Max out on pull-ups. 
  • Jog to station 3: 25 squats
  • Jog back to station 1.
  • Rinse/Repeat. Got in about 5 reps before heading back to the parking lot for Mary.

Mary, around the circle
Recover, Recover


  • Jason is a neighbor of mine who has turned into a great friend. He also lives beside Moose, so Jason has been hearing about F3 for years. Recently, he said that he was ready, and that’s all I needed to push the recruiting a little harder. Jason is a solid Christian guy, successful businessman, and would be a tremendous asset to our Depot group to strengthen our core. Iron Sharpens Iron.
  • While Jason was telling us about himself and names were being slung around, he mentioned how bad of a golfer he was. “Barkley” was mentioned that seemed to stick. If you didn’t post this morning, zero comments should be coming from your camp about his name. 

Prayer Requests: 

  • Our soldiers who served in Afghanistan (and everywhere else), the country (and people) of Afghanistan
  • Recent covid surge, families each navigating this uniquely. Prayer for wisdom and protection. 


  • Party at Arrears this afternoon for pax that succeeded in the August challenge. Updated details below:
