• When: 1/6/15
  • QIC: Mac
  • The PAX: Candy Stripe, Higgins(Respect), Boo!, FNG (John Flannigan), Slim Jim, Quest, Meatball, Wapner, Treadmill, Take-a-Number, Marinara, Finkle, Mac

No running? No Recovery!

13 Pax gathered in the gloom of Turning Point to start chipping away at those New Year’s goals. With YHC’s left foot still swollen and sore from this past weekends adventures the Pax were promised a change from the normal Mac attack which will involve little to no running. What the Pax didn’t know was that running is a recovery between painstations and no running means little recovery and more suck. After a disclaimer to the FNG and anyone else who cares to listen we balled-up for a quick prayer and went and got-er-done.

Weather: 32 and overcast…perfect gloom

Reverse bear crawl up the stairs (Crowd Pleaser!!!)


People’s Chair until 6 arrives


I just want to take this time to interject with an observation. The “6”, as we affectionately refer to the hardworking men that take longer to finish an exercise, are some hard-working guys. If I reach the top of the stairs in half the time doing my backwards bear crawl, I am spending half the time stressing my muscles. When I am finished I usually have to plank or some other form of less-than-difficult position or exercise while the “6”er is still working his butt off. When he finishes it’s time to move on. He doesn’t get the benefit of recovering in the not-so-difficult position. So if you think that you are working the hardest cause you finished first, think again, the hardest working guys in F3 hang in the “6”s. So here’s to you all of you “6”ers <drinks beer>

Hosey to the top of Mt. Midway

Inchworm merkins down the hill (Another crowd pleaser and one that left me in the 6!)


Somehow Mt. Midway grew while I Inchwormed my way down it. Everytime I looked at the bottom it wasn’t any closer. That’s why I love this hill. It is the gift that keeps on giving! #UnhealthyHillFetish
